September Blue

I love my state of Michigan.  I'm surrounded by huge lakes full of fresh water.  A few weekends ago my family and I visited Kirk Park on Lake Michigan, which is about 40 minutes from Grand Rapids.  I love stopping by at the beach in the fall.  Beaches are not just for summer fun.  What I found beautiful was the change of water color from summer to fall.  Upon approaching the lake my sister commented that it had changed to September Blue.

 infinity scarf: Target // hat: American Eagle (similar)


This was also the first time I tried the denim on denim look.  For so long I've been petrified to try this because of the whole Britney/Justin fiasco I'm sure a lot of us remember.  Haha.  That is still the first thing I think of when seeing denim on denim and that was 11 years ago!

Have you tried wearing denim on denim yet?

  11. Lake Michigan looks gorgeous! I have no idea what the Justin and Britney fiasco has to do with denim on denim, which makes me pause on whether or not I should try the look! I do love it though, especially with the floppy hat! I will definitely try it, as I finally found my lost chambray shirt, and the weather should cool down in a bit. Plus I'm in Tennessee and I packed it with my jeans! -Jessica
