stay tuned for a proper outfit post tomorrow for the deets on my fab festival look
The Tooele Arts Festival is running this weekend, which translates into a weekend where I actually go outside and do stuff. Spent nearly my entire day wandering through the aisles upon aisles of booths, perusing the various collections and was still discovering things I loved by the end of it. The vendors consist mainly of artists and photographers showcasing their work, jewelry makers and some apparel designers displaying their wares, and food and ice cream vendors to satisfy one's summer calorie cravings. My favorite part of summer is always art festival funnel cake - I practically had to restrain my sister so I could get a photo of it before she started tearing it apart.
I have apparently developed some sort of discipline, because I didn't spend every penny I had in my wallet. I did, however, pick up three new pairs of earrings and some bracelets for my beautiful nieces who are in town this weekend, and collected a slew of business cards for shops that I'm excited to introduce you all to (read: locate websites for and shop). If you're in northern Utah this weekend, the Tooele Arts Festival is definitely worth checking out. The festival goes through tomorrow afternoon, but get there early to catch all the vendors (I may just go back myself, too). They have some pretty fantastic stuff this year, though my favorite was the Paparazzi Accessories display.
I'm seriously crushing on all of the orange pieces, but the silver and orange necklace (in the photo directly above) is screaming my name. It'd be perfect with a white tee or tank, some dark wash denim cutoffs and platform wedges - a look I could rock all summer long. I'm planning on hostessing a Paparazzi party sometime soon, where I will most definitely be acquiring the above necklace in addition to a number of other pieces. Everyone is most certainly invited, and at parties everything is just $5.50. I'll post more info as soon as I get it on the books, but for those of you too impatient to wait for the party (or interested in having your own) holla at my girls Tess and Michelle - and be sure to tell them I sent you.

Look for a proper outfit post tomorrow for deets on the gorgeous beachy-tye-dye maxi dress I wore today. Did anyone else hit up a festival this weekend? Anyone in town who attended Tooele's Art Fest? Any great finds? More importantly - what did you wear?
