Hot Air Balloons

Since moving to Auburn about a month ago, I've been so lucky to have met and become super close with the most incredible group of girls. We all have so much in common, that it's quite difficult to believe it has taken this long to cross each other's paths. Recently, we all woke up at the brink of dawn to attend a hot air balloon festival at sunrise. Granted, at the time, waking up that early on a Saturday morning was a bit grueling, but once we arrived, saw all the beautiful colors of the balloons, and had such a fun time it was worth every minute of lost sleep. There's no doubt in my mind the memories from this very unique morning with such wonderful friends will last forever.

Contrast

Nothing demands the emphasis of drama quite like a color palette of black and red, which is exactly what came to mind while styling this look. This three piece black lace set is one of the dreamiest pieces I now own. To play up the romantic goth feel of the dress, I added a vampy red lip. Also, to make the lip color pop, I matched it with my new pair of red ankle boots. The extreme cat eye glasses were the perfect final touch to really add an extra punch of boldness.
