Hello everyone, Sarah of Note to Self here. Over on my blog I have a hypothetical vacation feature called “Escape to…” and Nikki thought it might be fun to do one in honor of her trip out to the midwest. Without further ado, let’s escape to the lake!

Thanks for having me, Nikki!
I’m heading to Wisconsin tomorrow to spend a week with family on Lake Michigan. (And I’ve got some great guest posts lined up for you!) I except it to be just super beautiful and relaxing. I also think that I’ll spend most days in a bikini, t-shirt, shorts, and flip flops, however I can’t stop dreaming about outfits that are just a little more luxurious. Think leopard print, saturated colors, metallics and layered jewelry. I’ll have to plan an occasion for playing dress up like this when I get back!

By the time you read this today, I’ll be on a plane to Dallas, or maybe I’m already there. I’m visiting the Lone Star State for a week to visit with friends and take some work meetings. I’m super excited to reconnect with three of my favorite girlfriends from studying abroad in Paris. It’s going to be a fab time! Excuse me if a disappear for a few days on the blog – but be sure to follow all our fun and food on twitter and instagram. Yee-Haw!
