Packing for Grand Hotel is a celebration unto itself, and it’s one of my favorite rituals before visiting #AmericasSummerPlace! Here’s what I packed for a visit to Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island.

The organic cotton sleep dress is white yet not sheer, relaxed for a comfortable fit, and has side slits for better flow and movement, setting it apart from other long tee-style sleep shirts.
