Fashion // Renaissance Faire style

I’ve got a fun look for you guys today! For years now, I’ve been going to the Renaissance Faire at the end of summer with my family and friends, and it’s always a great day of silliness, food on a stick, gorgeous handmade jewelry, shows, and of course, it’s an excuse to dress up! One year I went as a pirate, but this year I’m going back to my usual, with a dreamy dress and some kind of fun headwear. It’s not a super costumey look, but I like that it seems more laid back!

Some Summer Highlights

Last. Day. Of August. [Got that summertime sadness… 😉 ]

This month I’ve been lax with my posting because life has been busy, in a lot of good ways. In August I think we all try to squeeze in as much summer as we possibly can before it’s all over, and this month was no different for me.

August was such a short month: I started a new job writing lifestyle and editing for a site called Popcrunch, and I took all the time I could to spend time with friends, go to the beach, eat a LOT of ice cream, enjoy these summer nights, and do new things.

There’s this hiking trail in Peekskill, NY that my friends and I did this month, and it was basically climbing up the side of a mountain that opened up into this amazing view. Here are some pictures of the view from the top of the mountain:

And then a few days ago my sister and I went to the New York Renaissance Faire like we do every year! I absolutely adore the Ren Faire and happily indulge my dorkiness and my love for old-fashioned dresses.

Highlight: when I accidentally hit a bull’s eye during archery! I had an amazing Katniss moment and my sister caught it on camera.

That is the face of someone who will never hit a bull’s eye again in her life.

With a trip to San Francisco, a new job, and a lot of time spent with friends, this summer has been all I wanted it to be. How has your summer been? Have you done anything cool/fun/exciting?
