We made it to Wednesday you guys, hooray. Hope everyone is having a great week so far and I’m excited to reminisce about our weekend trip to Grand Rapids on the blog today & this gorgeous BCBG lace dress. Like I said before, I have been cherishing the weekends Trevor is off work and trying to make the most of our time together. Last weekend we headed to Grand Rapids for a friend’s wedding and were excited to explore the city. Even after living in Chicago for 6 years & seeing our friend’s beautiful getaway’s we had never made it to Northern Michigan. 

We weren’t sure where to start so I asked you all for recommendations and got some amazing ones so thank you. We headed to Founder’s Brewery as soon as we reached the city to meet friends and loved it. Their patio is huge and it was the perfect way to relax on a summer day. My favorite was the sampler option – you can try any 4 beers in smaller cups which is totally up my alley. After hanging there for the afternoon we headed to get ready for the wedding and I struggled to choose a dress since I loved both options I ordered from Rent the Runway. This blue lace seemed to grab my eye a bit more and I loved the way the layers looked.

We had  a blast at the wedding and catching up with friends we hadn’t seen in a while. Despite it raining the next day we still sneaked in a coffee shop stop at Lantern Coffee Bar & Lounge to make up for our cancelled beach day. If you every find you way up there everyone recommended stopping at New Buffalo, Saugatuck or South Haven and I am determined to make it happen before the summer is over.

Anything you have left on your summer bucket list? I can’t believe it’s coming to an end! Hope you have a wonderful day!
