Y'all, I wore cowboy boots last weekend. And I'm damn proud of it! I figured it was only fitting to dress a little country (ok, what I envision to be country - I've never spent more than a week in Texas, let's be real) since the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival was going on all last weekend. Did I attend? Nay, I tell you! I went to the Brit + Co Re:Make craft fair, and then spent some time at home with the fam. But I'll post more about that later! For now, just enjoy these pictures of me at Fort Mason with coffee, a bag of handmade goodies, and some pretty sweet boots.
This is not the most flattering outfit, I'll admit, but sometimes you just have to wear a casually large sweater with a crazy-colored bag and some boots. Just go with it!
Side note about the bag: I bought this bag in college after seeing a celeb (alright it was a Disney star) (alright it was Miley Cyrus) (STOP LAUGHING) wear it in a magazine. While my reasons may have been more trendy than philanthropic at the time, I actually really like the cause to which the bag contributes. The Wayúu Taya Foundation is a group that sells these hand-woven purses made by the Wayúu women of the Guajira Peninsula. Weaving is a talent passed on from generation to generation in the Wayúu culture, and each bag is made by only one woman, so each design is truly one-of-a-kind. It takes these woman about twenty, eight-hour days to make one bag! This bag is sturdy and colorful and totally worth the purchase. Even if it was inspired by Miley.
