weekend recap and an outfit


What a weekend! Labor Day is always the last way to wrap-up the summer. This weekend I had some good old fashion fun. Made some homemade breakfast with my mom, finished the fifty shades of Grey series (love love love) did a great DIY project. I got a little toddler rocking chair and refinished it as a photography prop!! ANNNND I attended the local carnival fair with my cousin and her boyfriend. The carnival is the best time of year...lucky me I get to also go to the Arizona State Fair in October as soon as I am home!! yipps, I love all the games, winning stuffed animals, and the rides. The fair here in Vernon also had a rodeo. I used to attend rodeos all the time as a child with my parents (Vernon is a country faming town) it was great to see it again. That was my weekend in a nutshell, how was yours?!

I am always so inspired by all black outfits with a pop of colour. You pulled it off beautifully! Hooray for poutine :)
