Grand Haven is one of Michigan’s featured Beachtowns, officially named Coastal Living’s 2017 Happiest Seaside Town. David and I spent a wonderful week there last summer and enjoyed it so much we plan to go back next spring!

The soft swirls of this hat (as well as the beachy color) remind me of the waves along the beaches of Lake Michigan.
