pathway through cornfields on the Du Quoin state fairgrounds
I just got back from a trip to the Du Quoin, Illinois visiting my mom, her hubs, and his family. My step sister helps to coordinate the State Fair down there so we got the VIP treatment! Which meant I got to meet Dwight Yoakam... who I've been a fan of for years and years (he does a bomb ass cover of Elvis' "Suspicious Minds").

We also visited some dude's farm for some reason (work related for my mom and her hubby), and mom and I sat in a giant tractor wheel.
I also fiercely enjoyed some grilled corn AND rode this crazy ride with my mom's boss. Not only do you get flipped all the way around sitting on the end of those long arms, but the seats spin around WHILE you're flipping. David was giggling the whole time, while I was giggling and cursing. Such fun.

Anyway, it was a grand ole time, but having to go back to work Tuesday after flying home late Monday night was brutal! But after 5pm today starts a much needed three day weekend... so there's that!
Occasion: Schoolin' it LA style, August 3rd
Outfit details:On a completely different note, here's an ensemble I sported during my two week stint in LA. I love this dress so much. Chose to keep things simple and monochromatic with the beige-y sandals and belt.
vintage dress via flea market
thrifted kork ease wedges
swapped woven belt
Happy weekend, y'all!
