long weekend!

This outfit was from yesterday - which was a really wonderful day. Sunny and warm enough for NO tights!! I'm trying my best to hold onto the last bits of warm weather before I'll be trapped under layers and layers of clothing for the next 6 months.
The farmers market was also setup near work and I took home lots of sunflowers, some dried lavender, tea that smells soo wonderful I'd rather not drink and instead make sachets with old hankies, a pumpkin shaped sugar cookie and I also enjoyed a glass of herbal lemonade on a park bench with lots of silly pigeons. We later met up with Emma and her boyfriend Vinney for some sushi and silly candy shopping. My boyfriend purchased the most amazing mens fashion magazine from Japan and his nose was stuck to it all night!! I have to admit, it's about 5 million times better then any American fashion magazine I've ever seen!

Today is another warm day and it also happens to be a weekend I've been waiting all year for - HONK FEST! Honk Fest is basically a two day festival for brass marching bands and it is SO fun! Last year we only saw the end of the parade and caught What Cheer Brigade's performance in Harvard Square, but walking around the square with all the marching bands resting under trees and playing music in their little groups - it was the closest thing I could think of to a dreamy gypsy musician lifestyle.

Anyway, if you live in Boston - GO! I promise it will be fun and impossible not to enjoy!

The What Cheer Brigade is from Providence! They played at an orientation event at my school, and they are very awesome. It was in the auditorium and it was dark and everyone had glow sticks. hope you have a great time!
