Every year St. Louis hosts one of the world’s most renowned Shakespeare Festivals. Running for two weeks in June, Shakespeare Festival St. Louis performs the same play (this year Romeo & Juliet) every night under the stars in Forest Park. It is free and open to the public. I, unfortunately, am not cerebral enough for Shakespeare. I attend the festival to take photographs with the their streamer filled trees, which are works of art in themselves (below).
(This dress has festival written all over it. The lightweight material is perfect for hot days and the maxi length means you can sit on a blanket without flashing your neighbor. It comes in two colors and I recommend sizing down.)
