Funky times

Funk Parade takes over the U Street neighborhood.

A one day festival, Funk Parade brought more than 70,000 people to the U Street corridor. The day started with attendees flooding the streets for day time performances, beer gardens and shopping. Beats could be heard from blocks away since DJ sets and live music filled the area.

BRINK, the company I work for, captured 360 video from the parade in collaboration with The Duke & The Duck . Take look!

I styled a casual look for the day since forecasts showed potential for showers, which Justin and I ended up running into. We stopped by Atlantic Plumbing, a beautiful luxury apartment complex, to keep dry and peep into Cherry Blossom Creative. I’m obsessing with this silk bomber from Topshop, which is perfect for this bipolar weather in DC.

My sister’s boyfriend, Thomas, actually bought me this shirt for my birthday. I wanted to wait till warmer weather to wear it, but I styled it with my destroyed jeans and some Nike Free Viritous sneakers I found for only $35 at an outlet.
