color the world

Hey y'all,

This past weekend was Pride Weekend, a time to support and embrace the LGBTQ community, and San Francisco was packed with people celebrating.

The Pride Parade was on Sunday, but I went on Saturday so I unfortunately was unable to see the parade, but I had a great time, nonetheless! There were tons of people wearing crazy outfits and it was all very eccentric, but I loved it. I love that this weekend was a time where folks weren't afraid to let their freak flags fly-- cute, creatively decorated bras, tutus, crazy open-ended suspender tight things. People were wearing every color under the sun. It was completely and absolutely crazy and fun and definitely a sight to see.

Here is my Pride outfit! Not as colorful as a lot of others, but I guess it's more colorful than anything I usually? I don't know.

FOREVER 21 top and necklace // GAP shorts // H&M jacket and shoes // HAND-ME-DOWN bag // STREET VENDOR lei


*Sorry about the shine*
NYX BRAND eyeshadow // STILA liquid liner

Unfortunately, I didn't get a lot of pictures of Pride but here are a couple taken there.

Overpriced food trucks are my jam. (There were a lot.)

Of course, amidst all the fun and celebration, we can't forget what Pride supports and fights for. LGBT rights and equality are still a major issue in the US. Same-sex marriage is legal in 19 states, but there is still work to do in order to make it legal nationwide. As a country, we have begun to become more accepting, but there is still a lot prejudice, unfortunately. There is hope for equality, and events like Pride are really great for getting people to have fun and come together!

Catch you all later,
