Chicago, it's been real. My body feels broken and my nose is sunburned, but man oh man was my Sunday fun. Ain't nothin' like hanging out sweaty with friends, eating pulled pork sandwiches and dancing with tall boys in your hand to your favorite bands. We sat in dirt and woodchips, avoided anyone that was trying to crowd surf, and sang poorly and loudly all day long. I'm already missing my loves...maybe my plane will break down and I'll get to stay another week?! One can only hope.

How amazing is this 70's linen dress?! I love making fresh outfits out of vintage- all you need is some neon accessories, a backward baseball cap, and a dash of floral print. It doesn't always have to look prim & proper or like a 50's housewife ;) This one in particular is from The Scarlet Monkey. Check out their store if you want to find some dresses of your own!
