fridays and dreams of summer

for the past few days I have been having daydreams of West bay being full of sailboats again and the windows wide open with birds chirping outside. Till that happens there is a lot of work to do and lots to accomplish, which is what winter is good for but when I saw this shoot for Jcrew on their website I was in love and it made me crazy for at least Spring. The chic casual outfits and the Ray Bans make me want to pull out my pixie pants and oxfords and pair with a bright top and cardigan. Not to mention the black and white shots make me yearn for some Audrey Hepburn. 

On top of it all I just have to say as a designer the interactivity that Jcrew does through their online campaigns is monumental for clothing companies. They are brilliant and beautiful every time. So head over and check it out and dream of summer or California 🙂


Hello! I’m Megan Gilger,

A strong believer that nature and the seasons are our greatest teachers. We live on a hill in Leelanau County, Michigan just a stone’s throw from Lake Michigan. This land we are responsible for is where we are focused on building a life around the seasons and intention. We spend our days here building a regenerative model of living and focusing our garden on native plants and intensive polyculture planting styles. My focus is less on self-sufficiency and more on community-sufficiency through how we grow and connect through the seasons.
