This weekend was very relaxing for the most part nothing too crazy or too interesting. We saw the first decent snow coming down. None of it stuck but it was definitely reality of the next few months up here. Makes me excited to head down to Texas for a month…Don’t you guys worry I will be on the computer and blogging all through the holidays!


Today I wanted to post about Madwell I am a huge fan of the casual style and layered looks that grace their online store. As the cold weather is setting in I am a layer addict. I want dresses over tights and big sweaters and boots all the time. So these casual but classy looks are great inspiration for the next few months. Now granted shorts are no longer an option in Northern Michigan but I love any of these looks with a good skinny jean, straight jean, or leggings. The beautiful thing about leggings as we get into the deep dark months of winter is that the leggings can function as tights when tucked into boots with oversized wool socks.

As the holidays approach I am going to try to do at least one DIY project on the blog every week to prep for the holidays.

Have a happy Monday!

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.
