After stripping my wardrobe of everything red last year, I saw this top on Madewell and instantly loved it, so I went for it! A while back now, I went through The Curated Closet (which I loved) and dreamt of my closet and color palette, and red wasn't really part of it at the time. I've always worn red (and have liked red!) but typically overall I gravitate toward earthy colors and neutrals and less toward primary colors. But I definitely need to make an exception for red... because I really love this color, how I feel in it, and how it looks (especially in my adventures around Michigan). It's just a color that feels right, and sometimes you just have to go with what feels right!
This outfit was worn on our second evening staying at the Big Sable Lighthouse! But since I chatted about our entire weekend in this post, there's not much else to say! This look was worn for waiting for pizza on the back of my car and scarfing pizza back at the lighthouse. Cozy & comfy! I absolutely love how the photos during our trip looked though! It was slightly overcast, which provides some of my favorite lighting for photos. I loved the weather this entire weekend though. Warm, yet slightly breezy, which made for the most amazing waves in Lake Michigan. That's why August is my favorite summer month!
I'll be back to some regular posts around Grand Rapids now that we're home for a few weeks! Last weekend, I went up to Traverse City with my girlfriends for a wine tasting weekend, which was so fun. I'll be doing a guest blog on the Traverse City Tourism blog soon on all of our favorite spots, so I'll keep you updated there! The next trip we have planned now is a trip to Phoenix with my parents! I've only been to Phoenix once before, and it was for a work trip so I barely saw the outdoors, so I'm really excited to go back and explore! If you have any tips or recommendations for Phoenix, let me know in the comments! (Also, I just hit 10K on Bloglovin' and I just wanted to say thank you! So many of you have been following along for years and it means so much you've stuck around for so long!)
