Seahorse Graffiti













Dress, shoes: Target; Purse: Coach (similar style)

After getting off of work, Ben and I headed to Target to spend a gift card I won that was burning a hole in my pocket. This dress happened to be the right price and the perfect print for summer. Sometimes Target blows me away with their pretty, easy style. They've got a seahorse cardigan right now that's similar in white and pink that is definitely worth a trip.

We then walked to the garages down the hill from our apartment that are open for graffiti-ing on Sundays. The space is insanely bright in color, crazy graffiti, and there are always people in the garages taking photos for maternity shoots, engagement shoots, etc. In the adjacent garage there were a group of guys dancing and signing to loud music and people were taking photos near us of the walls. It's a kind of fantastic, weird, urban space that speaks to how awesome our city is - a space where you can wander in and graffiti on weekends? Awesome.

We then wandered into a new(er) and very small brewery down the street from our house, all it's doors propped open in the warm, buggy summer night, and drank high alcohol percentage IPAs while talking in the heat. We chatted with the brewer and then headed back home to watch movies. Happy weekend all!
