I’ve been feeling a little burnt out lately and I’m trying to pick a few days to take off of work just to catch up on things. New goal: stop doing so much crap. For some reason, unlike my money, I like to save up all my PTO at work and do nothing with it. I’m hoarding my vacation days. I occasionally take a day off or a half day, but never a week. Anything I think to do for a vacation is just me doing more work. I’m driving myself crazy lately.
Anywho, I wore this for Day 2 of the art festival. It was so incredibly and painfully hot and so this little cotton dress was the best thing to throw on for a day of walking through crowded streets with fellow hot, sweaty people. I picked up these glasses in Chicago for my friend Ali since she had been on a search for heart shaped sunglasses and for the purposes of this shoot, I threw them on. Ali, you will get them on Sunday!

Time to get ready for bed! I must be at work by 6am-ish to prep for the bimonthly legislative breakfast we host. Let’s hope the legislators show up!

The East Lansing Art Festival took place on Saturday and Sunday and I spent both days browsing the booths, listening to music and eating delicious food. It was so so hot though and I haven’t yet adjusted to the heat. I quickly tracked down my favorite booths to find a few jewelry pieces and spent most of the time looking for food and listening to music at the main stage.
It was such a fabulous weekend with my friend Courtney here visiting. She met a ton of my Lansing friends and we celebrated my friend Sarah’s birthday on Saturday with dinner and dancing. Here are a few photos from the weekend!
One of my favorite booths was the leather goods booth. My friend Jenn purchased a gorgeous leather bag and I picked up a couple leather wristbands.
