Really, is there anything more magical than hot air balloons? This was my first time attending the festival, which was a family tradition for K. I'm in love, and I hope to be back again next year.
But the most exciting part about this new outfit was definitely the fact that I scored SOME MAD DEALS.

Even though I'd envisioned using these shorts in pattern mixing situations, we faced a sweltering afternoon during our return to the carnival portion of the balloon festival later that day. So I traded in the heavier striped top for this light and breezy Cat Power concert tee that I'd tucked in my bag for a more casual look. I was so comfortable in this pairing. These shorts were the clear MVP of this vacation!
