This is one of those outfits that looks far better in person than in photos. I think fashion can often be like models; some women who look average in person look phenomenal in photographs, some outfits that look meh in real life look gorgeous when photographed… and some that look pretty fab IRL are meh on film.

I was going to return these shoes after getting the blue ones on eBay, but then I realized that I got these for only $20 due to an online sale and thought they were cute enough to keep for that price!

This weekend was pretty gray and gloomy, but we still had fun.  Saturday there was a music festival in the town square – my husband went to take pictures, I went with Emerson so she could get her groove on.  She's a huge fan of live music.  There was a troupe of hula hoopers there and they brought extra hoops for the crowd – here's Emerson making an attempt to hula hoop:

    You look straight up tiny in this! Also, the shoes and scarf are the perfect finishing touches. I really need to remember to wear scarves like that more often.
