Thai Orchid Petoskey is by far my favorite Thai Restaurant in Michigan.

I love to pack versatile, easy to wear pieces so I can transition from situation to situation easily, whether I’m popping into a café after site seeing, walking through gardens in the rain, or walking all day while exploring somewhere new, I like to pack with a certain color palette depending upon my destination or the season, or both, so that I can easily mix and match pieces with little effort. My Autumn Travel Essentials reflect this, and I generally wear browns, caramel colors, tobacco leather, and creams, because these pieces can all be easily rearranged to make numerous different outfits, which means I can pack less and get more out of my capsule wardrobe.

Inspired by world famous photographer Slim Aaron, and summers aboard a yacht in the Mediterranean, Chuc’s Café in Kensington is a gorgeous vignette of summer memories, adventure, and bold colors. This gorgeous café was a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of London’s South Kensington District, where we stayed at the Kensington Hotel, and took us right back to our adventures in Italy, not so long ago. The blue and white color scheme, the beautiful miniature orange trees, and the freshly imported Italian ingredients were a delight we won’t soon forget.
I love adding an unexpectedly intricate detail to my outfits, whether it’s something like an ornate handmade metal handbag, wide lacy sleeves, or lavishly embroidered eyelet details. This oversized embroidered shirt collar harkens back to when many people handmade their own clothing, and poured hours of loving handwork into making an item all their own. I think oversized shirt collars are more beautiful than ever, particularly when they are handmade or vintage.

These jackets were originally between $300-$600, and you can snag them for as low $80, so grab them before they’re gone, because I don’t think we will ever see prices like this again.
