as I’m sure you’ve gathered by now, I’m usually playing catch-up on updating recent events (hence Flashback
!) so here’s another catching-up post from last weekend’s Summerfest + Artlantis events.
Summerfest is located on Virginia Ave and pretty much takes over Highland Ave. it features artists, food, live music and high Southern temperatures! each year I’ve lived in ATL I’ve attended the event with layers of SPF, a hand fan and cup of water and STILL get so exhausted from the sun and heat but I keep going back for more as I love all forms of festivals! Artlantis which is just down the street on Ponce De Leon, also takes place on the same day, but is Indie and has more affordable arts and craft goods. it’s fun to attend both to see all the variety of art, from high end contemporary pieces that I personally wouldn’t buy but enjoy admiring to reconstructed vintage clothing, between the two events you get to see a wide variety of goodies!
here’s some streetstyle, detailed shots of pretty things and festival snaps:
my outfit: Urban Outfitters top, shorts & shades, Frye sandals, vintage bag and necklace
hung out with Mallory who wore a Loft dress & necklace, Target hat, Havaianas flip flops and Ray Bans sunnies
also spent the day with this pretty lady, Ashley, who was so patient with me running around snapping photos!
-pretty ombre and flower crown-
-all in the details-
-maxis are a comfortable option for the Southern heat-
the sweet lil lady in the floral shades told me they were on SALE at UO and I actually ran and got them for myself on the way to Artlantis, $10, SCORE!
after taking the pic of the girl on the left we recognized each other and realized I had actually taken her photo during Shaky Knees fest! I must really dig her style! dress on the right is vintage and ADORABLE.
top pic is of a little girl’s rad high top sneakers, she was pretty bashful but I think she was just playing it wayyyyy cool (since after all, she WAS super hip!) bottom Docs were recently purchased and she was real stoked I took this pic, yay!
my one purchase came from the booth and artist on the left, it’s a bendable headband that is made from vintage fabric (she is actually wearing one she made!) wish I could remember the name of their booth. shorts and crop tops are also a nice way to stay cool and were sported by many.
artist and hip lady behind the brand Melting Sun Apparel and her goods.
bumped into gal pal Nadia Maria riding in on her sweet road bike wearing highwaist scalloped shorts.
-more details including a cute bow tie-
left side lady scored this romper from the fest and immediately put it on to beat the heat! gal on the right is playing it smart by cooling down with a locally made King of Pops.
Foxboxes artist hanging in her booth which has really neat flasks (that are VERY practical and I use often).
really cool cement planters by local artist featuring my favorite plants: succulents.
shake-weight-guy rocking out for the Ponce De Leon traffic. he’s a staple around these parts!
Jess Jones porch hanging after a long and sun filled day adorned by my favorite pattern-of-the-moment, polka dots!
capped off the day with porch chilling and grilling with friends with this cutie named Buddy who belongs to the chef and hostess Stephanie. such a good day and it’s only the beginning of the Summer!
have a good weekend and as always-support local stuff!!
