Flower Girl

It was a humid day. So finding water for breeze was very relaxing.  At the edge of this bride are trees that provide much needed shade on such a day. I must say this is the perfect dress for a hot day.  The breeze travels through it and the light colors reflect the sun.

Here I’m on the steps of a museum.  I didn’t enter that day.  The art that my soul craved was provided in the nature around me.

I’m glad I decided to venture out that day in my flower dress on a search for

something that spoke balance and peace. This is called Mary’s Garden if you get

a chance to visit the museum on a nice day stop for a moment and take it all in.

Festival: Chesapeake Bay Reggae Fest

First let’s talk about festival fashion.  Below is the dress I wore to the Chesapeake Bay Reggae Fest.  I chose this dress for several reasons. It complements the culture associated with the festival, I can dance in this dress, and I don’t have to be too self conscious after I eat this delicious food.

I chose these sandals because the sole is durable and will support my walking and dancing. Make sure your pedicure is on point; you don’t want unsightly feet to take away from the cuteness of your sandals.

Last but not least have a tote big enough to add a towel or blanket for sitting, an umbrella, bottled water, a sweater or jacket, and plenty of room for the souvenirs you’ll acquire at the festival.

RasAttitude

Before the I tell you about the artist, take notice of the bridge in the background.  This is where the comfortable sandals with thick soles came into play.  I walked over the bridge to get to the festival.

The artist is Ras Attitude.  He’s an artist originally from the Virgin Islands.  Coming to perform at this festival was like a homecoming to him.  Although he has not been to Hampton Roads in years he spent a great deal of time performing and crafting his sound in this area before leaving to perform abroad.  I really enjoyed his performance. Hopefully he will return to the festival next year.

This custom bracelet was purchased from one of the vendors at the festival.  I immediately fell in love with the message.  I advised the vendor I would wear it daily as a reminder to do what I love and love what I do.

So yes make sure you bring funds to support the vendors.  You’re guaranteed to see something that you must take home as reminder of the great time you had.

Here is a shot of the entrance to the festival.  As you can see I have my hoodie on at this point.  It was very breezy by the water.  But dancing to the beautiful music will help you warm up.

In My Denim

My last trendboard was entitled “Denim on Denim.” I realized that I had a picture of my style interpretation of this trend. As you can see I was totally aiming for comfort.  I work in retail so comfort rules.  I was also walking to the store when I stopped to capture this photo.  Notice the overcast in the photo? It was a rainy day in my city.  No worries, the umbrella was in the tote.

I have on denim overalls, paired with a denim jacket (love how that cheetah print is peeking through 🙂 ) The look is accessorized with my reusable denim tote.
