WIW: Exploring Northern WI

I finally got to go on a shopping trip with one of my besties AND it was pretty amazing! I got a lot of good steals and it inspired me to be a little bit more fashionable. The day after our shopping trip I was headed to Northern WI for a marathon so I decided I would hit those midwesterners with a bit of a splash!

The marathon was in Ashland, WI which was a beautiful little town right on Lake Superior. The two photos above where taken in their downtown area. I love when small towns have murals, they really bring a lot to make the area feel homey. This mural was beautiful, absolutely stunning with vibrant colors. 

After picking up our race packets we headed out of town to explore more of Northern WI. We found the small town of Bayfield, WI filled with big boats, beautiful trees changing colors, and magnificent views of Lake Superior. I felt that the red corduroy pants matched the fall atmosphere surrounding me. Plus these pants are super soft and comfortable, I could probably live in them and be happy about it.  I loved the challenge of mixing green and red without making it look Christmasy...and I think I might have nailed it!
