What I Wore :: Balloon Glow

When I was a kid, I remember the Great East Texas Balloon Race every summer. We'd go out to the airport and watch as dozens of hot air balloons lit up the night sky. That's why I was so excited to find out Little Rock was hosting it's very own balloon race this year!

The Great War Memorial Balloon Race arrived just down the street from me today at War Memorial golf course. There was music. There were balloons. It was a gorgeous evening to just enjoy the spectacular beauty of a hot air balloon glow. I have no idea why all balloon races are great, except why wouldn't they be? HOT AIR BALLOONS are great in general, am I right?

So what does one wear to a balloon glow? I went for something cool and comfy. I picked up this skirt at Loft this week and it was just perfect for an outdoor event like this. They have the most adorable summer skirts right now. The top and bag are Limited, sandals Target. Topped off with a nautical knot headband.

Perfect night for eating ice cream and enjoying the outdoors!


Literally, one of the biggest balloons I have ever seen. And one of the most intimidating. BB and I decided we needed a pug-shaped balloon to sail around the world.

The amazing band that played after the glow! She sang Etta James' "At Last" and added an entire verse about breakfast foods. I have no idea why it wasn't included in the original. Pancakes are so romantic.

Me and the giant glowing monkey head. Balloon race festivities pick up at 6:30 am in the morning. I went once as a kid, and it was actually really cool. But seeing as it's Saturday...I'm not sure we're gonna make it ;)
