Let's Hear it for The Boys!

In case some of you didn't know- Men are more than welcome to join the Midwest Style Bloggers group as well!  We wanted to highlight one of the male bloggers in the network - Nick, at The Great Lakes Prep as well as a fun event hosted by him this weekend!
Check out the details for the Locally Brewed Tour over on the Great Lakes Prep blog!

Feeling that there was no niche for the prepsters not living in the deep south or in the heart of texas- he also launched a brand with some Midwest flavor, Floyver Press, featuring Midwest-centric apparel, accessories, koozies & prints.

Be sure to check out the shop & stop by the event if you're living in the area to support our talented network of Midwestern bloggers!
