pretty excited to share these images with you all as my holiday weekend was fabulous, starting with a backyard carnival right here in the city!! dodekapus, who puts on several other parties i attend, threw a wacky carnival themed bash over @@ the Big House on Ponce. there were multiple bands, games, artists, face paint, a trampoline && moon bounce, live screen printing, and lots of other festivities all benefiting the Living Walls charity-who’s cause is supporting and protecting street art. what a night! check it out:
mom bought me this Kenzie dress for my bday and as usual i hoarded till the right occasion came about..and with the little train in the back and fun colors this seemed Oh-So-Carnival appropriate! was going to pair it with my vintage bejeweled white boots but thought all the white might be over-kill so i went with the trusty red booties. the sleeves are pretty interesting too, there are straps you can wear OR you can have both the sleeve && the strap up ORRR neither. kinda really love this outfit :))
ashleigh got hooked up with the face-paint, then i threw on the jewel and smashed some glitter on her forehead..♥♥♥

post-carnival i walked over on saturday morn to the Highland Row Antique store for their holiday sale ((20% off everything storewide!)) and picked up a couple of goodies. one of which was this super cute vintage suitcase ((which now makes my collection 4 strong!)) and, of course, i used it to travel home with. didn’t need many items since it was a chill weekend at the lake house so it worked out perfectly. it’s in great condition and def my new fav sidekick!

family dog, Gracie. she is a hoot let me tell ya! will not stay on dry ground to save her life, jumps off the dock like a flying squirrel && if you’re not throwing her toy..she’ll just swim..doesn’t care!
