Saugatuck Reunion


This weekend I got to revisit the college days - dancing, beers, french fries, good laughs, and no responsibilities.  A break from all the work on the house was a relief and a reunion with old college buddies was long overdue. Granted I saw most of them at the wedding, but Zach and I didn't get near enough time to catch up.  If only they all lived in Grand Rapids!

We headed out to a few of our old stopping grounds in Saugatuck - Wally's and The Annex.
It was nice to dress up after a long day of wearing my sweaty work clothes.


 
 
 



One of my favorite finds from our honeymoon out in California was this amazing piece of driftwood. I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with it when I found it, but once I got home and looked through my jewelry, I knew it would look great on this gold necklace. Such a treasured piece now.
Dress: HouseThis, Necklace: Handmade, Shoes: Forever21, Belt: Forever21

Looking forward to another great weekend coming up... celebrating Anna's birthday in Kalamazoo!
It's these little parties, adventures, and meet-ups that have made my summer.
Without them, I'd be a hermit and just work on our house non-stop. :)

  7. Adorable. As always. You seriously are so pretty Kate. I know I've said this before but you are totally Kate Middleton's twin. Like it kind of kills me how much you remind me of her. (Are you sure you weren't separated at birth or anything? ;)
    By the way, that necklace is so sweet! What a cool idea and such a fun thing to save.
