Wanting to explore Northern Michigan, Matty and I embarked on a five day camping adventure in search of lakes, swimming holes, and hiking trails. This set of photographs is from the first stop on our trip- a little camping ground nestled just outside of the Pigeon River Country State Park. The forest was filled with birch trees, maples, and jack pole pines. For me, summertime in California is synonymous with camping trips in Yosemite and the Sierras. It was quite fun to explore a different landscape with unique vegetation and wildlife.
When I first discovered this dress in a local Ann Arbor thrift store, I was immediately drawn to its earth tones and cut. Growing up in the Bay Area, I was introduced to dyed fabrics by vendors on Telegraph Avenue. While I find most tie-dye to be a bit kitschy, the muted pattern of this dress was perfect for forest treks and late summer ensembles.
I'll be posting many more pictures from our camping adventures over the next week!
