Summer is a funny thing. We are finally done with a dreadful heat wave that hit the east coast last week. 12 days in a row with weather over 95 degrees. It was fun for pool partys and staying in to bask in the air conditioning, but it's safe to say that I'm completely over summer and looking ahead to the fall now. My style has really reflected this feeling lately too. Normally in the summer I'm crazy about sun dresses and sandals but not this year. Give me chambray and (faux) leather. top, bracelet, belt- f21 grazers, shoes- urban outfitters

This past week I had some vacation time so I headed home to Iowa! I got to spend time with my family and friends and enjoyed lots of food and shopping! All of my favorite things. First thing I did with my vacation was immediately hit up a happy hour with some work friends. These PBR glasses are shaped like cans. I need to own some. Beautiful Iowa scenery. Outfit. Thrifting fun with Angelica. Awesome 90s Cheetah dress I thrifted. CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTINS I THRIFTED. I WIN. Had a cookout with some family. This is a punch my mom made with fresh watermelon juice, strawberry juice, and mint leaves. Went to a bonfire party. Hung out with my dad and his dog, Max. We drove around the park and stopped at the dock. Played dress up and worked on some fun projects with Rose and Angelica (coming soon...!) ATE THIS. Well, half of this. Fried pork tenderloin. Spent the last night in Des Moines with friends and many drinks. The End.

Hey all. The blogging bug has bit again, so here I am. I wish I had an outfit to share, but don't have a photographer this week. Instead I'll share with you some Instagram photos. I post mostly food/fashion. Follow me at @mackenzieburger! I'd love to follow back! Pretty vintage scarf. My sister visited town last month and we enjoyed the most decadent bloody mary's for lunch. Mine had Absolut, medium mix, beef broth, green olive, crispy potato strings, pickle spear, and beef jerky... and that was just the drink! Cool scooter in my neighborhood. Cool building in my neighborhood. Leinenkugel Summer Shandy is my favorite beer ever! I'm waiting to drink the first one of the season when I visit Iowa next week. Cucumber Sandwich. Yum. Found this pretty swimming suit for cheap at work. Purple high waited bottoms with a floral top? Easy. Impromptu outfit shot. Cut some holes in my tee. Oh! Crazy story. Last Sunday Nick and I were woken up at the fire alarm going off in out building. We took our time getting up, thinking it was no big deal. We had to run out of our burning building soon after! We are still not sure what caused the fire, but the basement was on fire and it took 8 fire engines to get it out. Thank goodness no one was hurt and there was no major damage. We went to our first Nationals baseball game of the season. Baseball is my fav. Embroidered top form H&M. Bought it. My style has been changing (as it always is) to a more 70s vibe. Love it. Summer does that to me. Details from todays outfit. Alright, thats enough. Till next time.

I take back my rambling about wanting to skip spring weather right away. Today was my day off and I spent it outside taking a long walk/run. It was gorgeous! Enough about the weather though...
I'm getting excited for summer and starting to make plans for a visit to North Carolina to visit my sister and also a visit back to Iowa. In Des Moines there is a music festival every summer thats very affordable and so much fun that I'm planning on attending again this year. They just announced a few of the acts for this years lineup and The Avett Brothers are heading the first night and Death Cab For Cuite is headlining the next. So, I'm obviously looking forward to that! I'm also hoping to get away to the ocean sometime this summer, we'll see about that one!
