my style: at the cabin

I “accidentally” forgot to pack a bathing suit this trip so, of course, I had no choice but to get a new one in Chicago on our way to the cabin. Luckily I found this number to save the day… as it, along with my , has become my daily uniform.

cabin progress: patio furniture

Remember from the planning post that I was looking for a couple chaise lounges? I ended up going with the from Ikea. After a fun assembly session with Rupe (these were actually the easiest thing I have ever put together from Ikea), we were all set to do our best lounging.

More to come on the patio as we are busy, painting, hammering, organizing, and finishing up projects this week.

To see all the progress on the cabin so far, head here.



from the weekend: chicago & the cabin

We spent half of the weekend in Chicago visiting Rupe’s brother’s family. We had a blast catching up, sharing stories, and doting on their three little boys. ┬áThe other half was spent at the cabin, taking long walks on the beach to zen out before assembling Ikea furniture. ┬áThose flat packed boxes get me every time.

Hope you had a lovely Memorial Day weekend.

pattern spy: brushstrokes

The painter in me is always drawn to a good brushstroke pattern. Here’s a few that I have my eye on now.

in my bag: heading to the cabin

We are heading to the cabin this week and I’m so ready, my bags are already packed. Here’s a peek at a few things that will be coming along with me and a few that are still on my cabin wardrobe wish list.

The weather in Michigan is generally unpredictable and especially this time of year, I think anything could happen. I just saw it was 90 degrees there today but will get back into the 40s by friday, so layers are key. While I’m hoping for some beach time, I’m sure the sweaters will have to come out and those boots are always handy for tromping around the woods.
