Summer is winding down in Northern Michigan, but it isn’t gone yet. Before the rusty hues of fall start to appear, pick up these pre-fall trends from V2V, an au courant women’s boutique, while you’re shopping in downtown Petoskey.

With a carefully curated selection of modern and feminine apparel, accessories, home goods and beauty products, V2V exudes a casual, but sophisticated, atmosphere. The sweet, floral scents of Paddywax candles greet you as you step inside the boutique pairing perfectly with the chic clothes, which range from vintage to vogue.

10666243_493721330812140_156724566_nFeaturing favorite brands like Free People, Hobo and Dolce Vita, V2V offers creative pieces for the fashion-forward shopper.


“We have a little bit of everything for everyone,” says Store Manager Atty Belanger. “You can be really preppy or more laid back, and we’ll have something for you. Free People is probably one of our top lines. It’s got a really fun, bohemian Northern Michigan feel to it mixed with some plaids and army jackets.”

Also keep an eye out for ’70s inspired skirts, patterned or solid-color culottes and a great pair of boots to add to your pre-fall wardrobe. Don’t forget a few accessories—try a leather bracelet, a gold metal cuff or a clutch wallet.
