White & Denim

Hi friends! I’m off work this week. Since we took our big family vacation to Paris in April, we decided to lay low and staycation this week. I’m a homebody, so I’m pleased as punch to just putter around. My husband can’t sit still, so we’ve already taken two day trips.

We decided to drive to Grand Rapids, Michigan, which is about 2 hours away from our house in the Detroit metro area, to visit the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park. Ummmm… Worth it. It was really cool. The gardens were beautiful and the sculptures were really amazing. If you live in the area, you should make the trip. We all really enjoyed it. The only downfall is that it was super hot. We were melting and there was hardly any shade. Blergh. Because of my moles/melanoma issue, I’m not supposed to get much (OK any) sun so I was wearing my denim jacket for sun protection. I was a sweaty Betty. I was so sweaty that when I got home I took a cold shower and threw every item of clothing I was wearing into the laundry basket. Yuck.

I picked up a pair of the Birkenstock Gizeh sandals in silver this summer. I have a very sensitive toe crack (totally not kidding), so I’ve generally been a fan of the Arizona style, but these wormed their way into my heart. It appears as if I’m becoming more and more of a hippie as the days tick on. I wear Birkenstock sandals, practice yoga, drive a Subaru Outback, and I’m even wearing a crystal necklace in the photos below. Please excuse me as I go align my chakras.
