wear it wednesday [manayunk arts fest]

Wednesday, June 26, 2013
on sunday, the hubs and i braved the heat to meet some friends in manayunk for their annual arts fest.

it was supposed to be quite the warm and sunny day so i threw on my lightest tank top and my new favorite mother denim shorts, did my hair up in a [slightly very messy] halo braid [more on that tomorrow], and hoped for the best.

[i'm pretty obsessed with these shorts]

the arts fest itself was really awesome. talented artists stretched from the fire house to the brew pub [where we enjoyed a delicious lunch]. 

free samples were everywhere and after trying the morningstar meatless grillers [umm, delish], hubby and i dominated the bean bag toss [aka cornhole] to win some free coupons [score!]

here are some of my favorites:



[the middle bunny pillow came home with me]

[gorgeous handmade necklaces. and check out the clip-board displays. extra points for creativity]

[this was a make-your-own scarf booth! basically, you throw a bunch of fabric paint into the vat, make your design, and pull a scarf through. the design stays on the scarf and after drying, you have a custom piece! unfortunately, the line to do it was wayyy too long or else i'd own one right now]

[stevie lynn jewelry was a big favorite of mine.  she makes hand-cut acrylic jewelry. and i can't get over that green! check her out at her etsy shop!]

[in fact, i came home with this gorgeous bracelet]


all in all [even with the hot sun and sweating all around] it was another great arts fest!

p.s. you see my tank top? i now have the tan line to prove i was wearing it. wear sunscreen, you guys!

  1. I didn't know you were near Manayunk! I went to Villanova and a bunch of my friends lived there for years :) The festival looks so fun, and I love your yellow tank!

  4. I love the custom scarf idea! Maybe we can convince them to show a few bloggers a special demo!
