Tim and I were visiting Michigan over the weekend for his grandfather’s 90th birthday!  We have a lot in common when in comes to family, including having grown up in California with parents who were raised in Michigan.  I wanted to pick a beautiful outfit that would complement the scenery & this Lover + Friends Ashton Dress was my pick.  You may recognize it as #3 on my top eight dresses for summer article.


We visited Four Star Greenhouse,  they boast the most beautiful display gardens during the summer months.  You can even host an event or get married there!  Back to the dress, one of the reasons I fell in love with it was the little shorts.  It is very comfortable, and completely flattering.

I’m wearing Schutz heels in this picture, they are no longer available but here is a similar & adorable pair.  I’m 5’5” and these 4” heels where perfect with this dress.  If you aren’t that tall I’d recommend getting the dressed hemmed, which would be a simple fix considering the material and pattern.


My fabulous hat by San Diego Hat Company kept me shaded from the bright summer sun.  I purchased it from Whole Foods Colorado but it is also available on Amazon!  I have received so many compliments on this hat, and it’s a steal under $30.

Such a perfect dress to do a spin in 😉

Can we talk about this front slit? It’s perfection, so easy to move in and it falls open beautifully!

My future sister in law captured this blogger + photographer moment 😉


I pay him in kisses (wink wink).
