town fest






Good evening darlings!
On this past Saturday, Albert and I got pleasantly acquainted with our new town during it's summer festival.  It was such a lovely experience getting to meet many of the people from the town, serving the community with some free t-shirt dyeing and face painting and playing a little music for them on the side. Though the heat was intense, it was a very busy and fun day not to mention very sweet to play under a wide open sky and between tall green mountains.  Our little band even got booked again to do another town festival (which is pretty cool, I must say)!  Some of the photos above were from our soundcheck during our acoustic version of "Starlight".  Playing music always gives me an instant high.

On a different note, Justice Pirate recently featured me on her latest Modest Fashion Feature.  This made me smile quite big as I couldn't agree more with her cause and how she promotes modesty in fashion.  Thanks also to Chaucee of The Fieldbook and Streets & Stripes, who took the photo that got featured.

That's all for now.  Have a gorgeous week!

Much Love,


  1. Good job on getting booked! Festivals are so fun. I'm so jealous of all the scarfs you put in your hair - it does not look the same when I do it! Make a tutorial for slow girls like me please.. :)

  2. Congrats on the feature!! And I'm glad the summer festival was a lot of fun : ) Those things usually are a blast.

  3. So cool! What kind of music do you guys play? I love the primary colors in this outfit. I saw a similar skirt on Etsy recently that I had to favorite!

  4. I love the unusual collar of your dress/shirt and the detailing on the bottom of your skirt. It looks like a fun carnival, does your band have any of its music online?

  5. The festival looks so cool! You guys are awesome for helping out!

    I simply adore this skirt, so so festive!

    Have a great week Marisa Noelle!
