The last day of our trip, we headed over to Traverse City for Cherry Festival! It was super hot and insanely busy, but we managed to find a place to park and walk downtown a bit! It reminded me a lot of our Coast Guard Festival... just cherry-themed instead! We chowed down on food, drank the best cherry colas ever and paid way too much money to ride carnival rides! I also had to indulge in a cup of cherries while we were there! Yum, so good!
I love these little red shorts and have been wearing them a lot lately! It has been the week of heat here! 90+ degrees every single day. My pasty Michigan body just isn't used to it! We finally went swimming in Lake Michigan yesterday, but other than that, I've been plopped in front of the A/C, watching movies, eating popsicle after popsicle! I sent out a tweet saying I didn't know how you southern girls handled it and I got tweets back saying 90 degrees was nothing. You're all crazy!
I'm excited for this weekend! Tomorrow at work, we get a half day and then we're headed to my boss' cottage for our summer outing! I'm excited! This is really one of the last weekends of summer where we don't have plans, so I'm going to enjoy it. I'm hoping to drive a little south, visit a cute summertime market and maybe visit Silver Beach. Not sure yet, but there will be lots of scooting, wearing my bathing suit and enjoying summer as a 24 year old. Yes, I'm turning 25 next Friday and I'm kind of freaking out about it.
If you haven't yet, be sure to check out Shop Ruche's latest lookbook, Summer Resort! It's so perfect. I don't know how they manage to outdo themselves every single time! Also, I'm booking my trip for New York Fashion Week, so if you'll be in NYC, let me know! The only thing I have planned so far is Lucky's conference. I'll be there from September 6 to September 11. I'm really excited. I loved it there last year and can't wait to relive the experience! Have a good weekend!
