This photo goes wayyyyy back all the way to fall this past October! Mandi and I had one of our usual hangouts and she had suggested that we check out the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival at Golden Gate Park. After two years of living in this area, I’d never checked it out, but a lot of people I had known had attended it every year. In comparison to most music festivals that I’ve been to, this one was probably, by far, the most chill. There were families around, no one was trying to push to the front, everyone was just on blankets. I also didn’t feel like any sense of urgency to do anything, which is great. I wasn’t sure what to wear to a bluegrass festival so I really just threw these things altogether, but the boots were both a good and bad choice. They were great because they were able to get really dusty, but bad because these aren’t exactly the easiest boots to walk in. I know you’ve all heard the story about how I snagged this find at a HUGE discount, but even still — for how much these boots cost normally, they should at least be walkable, am I right?
