July 4th fell on a Tuesday this year. Spent my Friday, Saturday, & Sunday partying with friends, so I decided to spend time with my family and have a chill day. Alcohol is exhausting after so many days, lol. Spontaneously went to Duluth for the day with my family. Duluth is one of my favorite places to go to in Minnesota. From the twin cities, it’s about a 2 hours drive. Took my mom onto the scenic chair lift and she was so scared. It was funny, but she enjoyed it after she got over the height fear. The scenic chair lift at Spirit Mountain is basically a ride that takes you high above ground level to see an amazing view of Duluth. It’s beautiful, calm, & relaxing. We went to the Rose Garden after and took tons of photos of my mom because she loves taking photos. I guess that’s where I get it from, haha!
My sister commented on my outfit, “You still dress like you’re 16, Bird.” Lol. Kid at heart. Or does 16 years old dress like they’re 22 like me, hmmm? Haha. Fashion has no age limit. But seriously, crop tops & high-waisted shorts are my favvv. July 4th and I was feeling a little festive. Fun fact: I DIY my USA crop-top in the car ride to Duluth. It was my bf’s old Nike t-shirt that he didn’t wear anymore, so I took it and made use of it. The t-shirt is so simple, you can recreate it by ironing on letters onto a simple t-shirt. My shorts was actually Levi jeans that I thrifted and transformed them into shorts. I’m sure everyone knows how to DIY jean shorts, and if not, there are tons of YouTube tutorials. Just type in ‘diy high-waisted shorts’ or something along those lines.
“This is California!”
(This photo just reminded me of EDC for some reason, lmfao.)
We tried to go find a restaurant to eat in Duluth, but everything was closed because of the holiday. Came back home and went to a buffet because it was the only thing that was opened around the time we got back into the cities.
Ended the night watching fireworks. I haven’t watched fireworks on July 4th in nearly 4 years. I remember the first year I moved to MN, I watched it with all my little cousins, and finally this year I decided to watch fireworks again.
This is a late post about my Independence day, but I hope you all had a good holiday as well!
