High Five Friday: Summer Edition

Geez, Louise. So far this summer has felt busier than the school year. Grrrr! Which also explains why I wrote my High Five Friday last week but am only publishing it today. We'll call it the summer edition and move along...

1. Wonders Never Cease
When a couple splits, I am always 100% unequivocally on the side of the girl. But the whole C. Wonder/Tory Burch relationship just got complicated for me. There are so doggone many beautiful things on sale right now at C. Wonder. If, for example, someone was buying a birthday gift for me, there is absolutely not one single thing I would not love to get my hands on. But for you, my favorite readers, I've collaged a few items here. :)

All of the items shown here are available from the C. Wonder 50% and 70% off sales. The sale will be over before I link to each one.
2. The New Hamptons
Bloomberg News and Forbes Magazine are calling northwestern Michigan the new Hamptons. Having grown up there, I can tell you: it is a GREAT place to visit! Flying into Cherry Capital Airport is easier than driving out to the Hamptons and housing costs are significantly lower than New York.

3. Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
I've always been slightly envious of people who receive transfers to Atlanta. After all it's a design mecca with her, her, him, and lordy knows how many more. But, then this omen was spotted above the city, proving what I've been saying: that Michigan is a place to watch. {Oh, and I totally missed that this happened to the state's cadre of design talent.}

4. Mud is Good
Since it is summer, ten tips on how to connect your family to the joys of the great outdoors from my friend, Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods.

5. DIY Wreath
I am not the queen of DIY but I did complete a simple project this weekend in anticipation of the Fourth of July. Using a few rolls of ribbon from Michael's, a straw wreath form, and a dab of hot glue, I created this red, white, and blue gingham and wild print wreath for my orange front door. Come follow me on Instagram for all the sneak peeks into my daily life!

Have a great week!
