Hot Air Balloon Fiesta

During the first 10 days of October, Albuquerque hosts an International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta.  It is one of those bucket list events that everyone needs to experience at least once,  It is so magical, and there is truly nothing quite like it.

A huge field is covered with balloons that inflate and lift off directly in front of the visitors.  You literally can walk right up to the balloons and high five the pilot as they lift off.  Another part that adds to the magic, is it begins at 6 am, so the sun starts peeking out from behind the mountains as the balloons take flight.

I am not a morning person, so a simple outfit was key for the event.  Whenever I want to be comfy and still feel stylish, I always throw on this pair of distressed jeans with my favorite sneakers, which are on sale for $50. I found this blush, blanket scarf for $12 the day before and was glad I had, because it is chilly at 6 in the morning!

You can see the balloons glow and take flight in this video we made:
