Back in time

Tie-dye dress from festival vendor, Minnetonka sandals from TJ Maxx,
Vintage necklace and bracelet, Balenciaga bag

This past weekend, I found an abandoned bus and tried (unsuccessfully) to break into it, saw Smashmouth in a free outdoor concert and sang along with songs that brought me back to middle school, experienced Mike's Harder Lemonade for the first time (which is surprisingly delicious!), avoided food vendors advertising "Sidewalk Meat", and spent wayyyy too much time in various dive bars, as well as a few really nice ones. I'd consider it a weekend well done :)

What an amazing bus! Too bad you couldn't break in. And the dress goes perfectly with it, it reminds me of Woodstock for some reason

That bus looks like an amazing background for a shoot! It has a slightly eerie element too, with it being abandoned. I like how your outfits reflects the feel of the bus.
