Lookbook: Fashion and Festivals

Lookbook: Fashion and Festivals

This past weekend was spent with family coming into town. We had a packed weekend driving around, climbing mountains, going to art fairs and seeing shows. It was great because we were actually able to do a lot of things that the hubs and I hadn't yet gotten around to since we moved to Arizona.

We went to the theater and saw "Sex & the Second City" which was like an improvisational play performed by members of the popular Second City theater.

We also went to this arts festival that showcased a ton of great, original sculptures, paintings, metalwork, clothing, etc. I thought these two pieces were too great not to share!

This is what I wore to the festival. This is my fedora that I am absolutely in love with, along with my Charlotte Russe blazer that I had to eventually take off because it was just too darn hot.

new-shortsMy shorts and belt are from H&M and the new fab shoes are from Forever 21--even though I swore I was never buying shoes from there again. I couldn't help it with these heels!

The purse is a Pepe Jeans London bag that I won from a giveaway by Dolls Factory that I mentioned in a makeup and muses post.

Funny story: In the middle of the "Sex & the Second City" play I realized that the Target Go Collection was available in stores that very day. Of course, I couldn't just leave in the middle of everything, although you would think saying, "Sorry guys, but Proenza Schouler is on sale" would justify any mad dash.

Instead, I waited until intermission when we were able to use our phones and bought this Rodarte lace print dress online. I couldn't help myself! But I gotta tell ya, I felt so much better after that. Would you have done the same?

Happy St. Patty's Day!
