Hi and thank you for checking out my blog! I am Mari, Founder of Marly Rae, an online clothing store for women craving a minimalist boho-chic style. I graduated from Grand Valley State University in 2015 with a degree in business. Originally a pure Michigander, I turned Floridian the day after graduation and tread my path in the sunshine state until Hurricane Irma hit my home in the Florida Keys. I started my blog in 2014 but took a break to focus on building my career. After taking a step back, I've launched my updated blog and to share my style and adventures!

Born & Raised in the Mitten; Moved to FL The day after graduation
I Bake When I'm Stressed
Always Wearing an odd number of bracelets
Pescetarian for 8+ Years

In addition, I play guitar, listen to Xmas music in June, love lemon in my water, am a certified yoga and paddleboard instructor, can never spell the word definitely without looking it up, and (sometimes) eat popcorn for dinner. You will rarely catch me with a plastic straw in my drink or bag in my hand, I am an Aquarius, love to cook and yes I normally have pots full of succulents around the house.

Whether I am practicing yoga, avoiding plastic use, or traveling the globe, I've always stayed true to my roots. I live for adventures, but am completely satisfied being a homebody with my Swissie, Yeti (named after the snow monster -- not the brand). I've always had a passion for fashion and I can't wait to share with you my unique style that is a mix of chic-boho-contemporary and everything in between!
