Newcomers to the (Ef)Face: Check These Out!

Milwaukee's IRISH FEST

No, I'm not Irish, but my name is, and I wish I were, so does that count for anything? 
Visiting Ireland is definitely a bucket list item for me.  It's gonna happen.
So to get a taste of the culture, I LOVE heading down to Miwaukee's Irish Fest every year.  This year we smoked cigars, watched the parade, bought some beautiful prints from a very jolly photographer and his wife, and caught GAELIC STORM in concert!  I don't care how many times I see Gaelic Storm; it'll never be enough!

My dress was very vintage in feel with the cut-out adding a modern twist.  I just ADORE it.  The length, the fabric, the colors, EVERYTHING about this dress is PERFECTION to me.  So I did a bit of a vintage make-up look to match, but went with a soft lip to subdue the drama of the winged liner.

POLKA DOT SHOOOOOOOOOES!!!!  How cute are they?

Heehee...pretty much my whole outfit is head-to-toe Forever 21. Even my sunglasses!  Thanks for making dreams come true, Forevs. (That's what my girlfriends and I call it.  Cuz we're dorks like that.)

This is a picture of me walking back to my apartment building.  So, yes, this means that the gorgeous location these photo were taken IS MY BACKYARD.  I love my apartment.

We'll finish off with a snapshot of me and my cigar.  It cracks hubby up when I smoke them hahaha...
