In My Bag | Northern Michigan

Tyler and I are headed up to Northern Michigan for a few days, and I couldn't be more excited to sit back, relax, and bask in the sun - just the two of us. Neither of us have ever been to Traverse City or the Leelanau Peninsula, but I've heard nothing but great things about the wine, lake, beaches, hiking, and food.

When packing for such a trip, my number one priority is comfort. We could be hiking one minute, find ourselves sunbathing on a beach the next, and then on a wine tour and nice dinner a few hours later. To accommodate, I pack versatile items that transition easily from day to night. These days, that kind of packing is easier than ever since I've paired down my clothing and accessories to a Simple Wardrobe. My picks for this trip include:


[1] Sunglasses [2] Sun Hat [3] Clutch [4] Carryall [5] Beach Towel [6] Cropped Tank [7] V-Neck Tshirt [8] Chambray Shirt [9] Swimsuit [10] Striped Dress [11] Cropped Tee (similar) [12] White Tank [13] White Denim [14] Chino Shorts [15] Denim Shorts [16] Birkenstocks [17] Sandals (similar)

The color palette is neutral, the style is relaxed, and I can quickly transition from day to night. Incorporating basic pieces that coordinate ensures my outfit options are endless. Michigan, here we come!
