Jul 25, 2012 >> G&F Jet Set Style: Mackinac Island
Although it’s too late to rush up to that fabled isle for the finish of the Race to Mackinac (see our coverage in Found!), there’s no reason why you shouldn’t take a weekend trip to one of Michigan’s most glam locations, especially while sipping your Veuve Clicquot on the sweeping porch of the Grand Hotel.
We’ve got the 411 on the perfect pieces to pack for a preppy weekend away complete with our print-and-go G&F Jet Set cheat sheet for the places to sleep, eat and shop while in town. Click on the image below to enlarge, print & keep with your itinerary.
ONE >> Printed iPhone Case, $25, by J. Crew
A playful nod to the Grand Hotel’s 18,000 tulip bulbs that are planted each year.
TWO >> Trout Pout Nail Polish, $14, by Butter London
We love this preppy but modern pink. And it has that ladies-who-lunch feel to it, too. However, we don’t think you need to match your sweater set to your nail polish. Please.
THREE >> Bow Studs, $15, at TopShop
Prim and proper just like the manicured gardens at the Grand Hotel. Fasten these faux-gold cuties on to send a twinkle out for that yachtsmen across the room.
FOUR >> Rodin Olio Lusso Perfume, $220, at Space519
One of G&F’s faves! The fresh jasmine and neroli perfume gives out that ‘I’ve not got a care in the world’ scent.
FIVE >> Broome Street Colored Jeans in clover, $198, by Kate Spade
A preppy place screams for preppy colors! And these bright, bold green jeans are the perfect pair in which to tool around Main Street.
SIX >> Collection Cashmere Polka Dot Sweater in dusk & black, $268, by J. Crew
It’s an island of horses and boaters. This graphic, geometric pattern reminds us a little of jockey’s uniform and a little of nautical flags. And it’s also just so darn cute.
SEVEN >> Tarzan Gold slippers, $400, by Stubbs & Wootton
Take a preppy classic and electrify it! These classic Stubbs & Wootton cheetah print slippers are candy-colored just for the new crop of Grand Hotel big spenders.
EIGHT >> Trilliny crystal frames in Bellini, $95, by Warby Parker
It’s another nod to a classic shape with a little bit of fun mixed in. These soft peach crystal frames are guaranteed to be your go-to shades for all weekend trips to come.
