my music festival wishlist

Today is a good day for internet daydreaming. I'm not feeling the healthiest today. To make matters even better for indoor laziness, it's one of those foreboding weather days when the sun seems to set three hours earlier than it should and the sky is one small step away from a downpour. So I'm hanging out with Bloom on the couch. She's got her bone, I have my laptop.

And I miss my two sisters. Ashley's birthday is tomorrow, which makes me want to travel to South Carolina and celebrate with her. And Rhiannon has been writing all kinds of great wishful thinking travel posts that remind me of all of the trips we've taken as a family. The older I get, the more convinced I become of how lucky I am to have such a wonderful family. Some of my favorites have been trips to Gatlinburg, Tennessee for a cabin outing (and plenty of antique mall outings as well) two summers ago, a recent fall trip to Charleston with my sisters and my mom, and going to the Pitchfork Festival in Chicago with Rhi.. it must have been in 2007. We saw Of Montreal and the New Pornographers and even a crazy Yoko Ono. And it was glorious.

Well, I'm going to steal a little from Rhi (don't worry, I asked first) and plan a fictitious trip to Bonnaroo with my sisters. Conan O'Brien, the Black Keys, Steve Martin playing a banjo, the Avett Brothers and even some M. Ward with Zooey Deschanel.. what better festival to plan it around?

My daytime outfit would look something like this..

roma yellow anthrochloe lace-up canvas wedges net a porter

Boater hat via Modcloth, striped tank, cut-off shorts, cork wedges, and camel scarf at Net-A-Porter, yellow sunglasses at anthropologie.

And in the evening..

Lace dress, denim jacket, and two toned brogues all found via Net-A-Porter, yellow socks on Modcloth, Trompe l'Oeil bag at anthropologie.

While today's a bad day for the outdoors, it's a good day for shoes. I decided to go with Madewell sunset sandals over the Jeffrey Campbell cork heels, mainly because they're a bit more versatile.. I ordered them, and they're on their way to me! Also, Brook of Crafty Crow Vintage and I made a trade, and I've ended up with these lovely wooden heeled sandals! They couldn't fit me better or make me happier. I can't wait to pair them with thigh high black socks. With these, the Madewells, and my new two toned oxfords (not to mention the pretty blue t-strap linen flats from UO), I am set for summer shoes.

Bloom and I have this great system going. When she wants to sit on my lap, she walks over to me and drops her bone onto my laptop. I move my laptop, she lays on my lap. It's genius.

Next Sewing Saturday project? Patchwork denim shorts. Coming soon.
