Saturday Style | 25

happy first monday of august! 
how is that even a thing already?!

this past weekend marked the beginning of a very busy month for me, but it was quite relaxing. i headed out to the burbs on Saturday to attend a brew fest with Mike and some friends in my hometown. it was fun to change it up a bit, since we’re usually in the city every weekend. the only thing i learned, though, is that i just do not like beer enough to appreciate an event like that. and when i say appreciate, i mean get my money’s worth. switch out the beer with wine and i am therewith bells on. 
i would say the only real mistake i made all weekend was returning to the city right (and i mean right) when lollapalooza (huge music festival) was ending on Saturday. hoards of underdressed, over-stinky people (mostly high schoolers) were just everywhere. it’s in those moments that i realize my age. or at least my internal age. because all i wanted to do was be curled up in bed and all these people looked like they were just getting the night started. we were packed like sardines on the el (subway train) and it was potentially the longest ride of my life. but i survived, clearly…i’ll use it as a learning experience. 
Sunday was spent packing up some boxes, grocery shopping, and gearing up for another week.
hope you had a great weekend!

  2. I find this post hilarious bc I did the same thing! Im assuming it was the same brew fest. Oddly enough I saw someone wearing your favorite Old Navy dress (red and white) and thought of you! Also, there's a Windy City Wine fest at Buckingham Fountain in early September – so fun!
