One of my favorite events down at the beach is Digital Graffiti Arts Festival in Alys Beach. This event showcases unique digital art projected on the sides of the beautiful homes in Alys. I was lucky enough this year to win the Instagram giveaway by VIE Magazine (the first giveaway I have ever won and I was so excited!) I got two full weekend passes. Friday night is family night and much more lowkey, a perfect night for my parents…
Aside from getting to see some incredible works of art from some incredibly talented artists, one of my favorite parts of this event is seeing everyone trade their 30A uniforms (beach cover ups and flip flops) for some more trendy outfits. I, of course, kept it a little beachy and wore a new outfit from Ophelia Swimwear. I got away with wearing a white swimsuit top, but styled it with the most comfortable and amazing striped pants. I dressed this beach look up with my favorite nude heels and fun jewelry. Don’t ever tell me that bikinis can’t be worn for anything!
I kicked off the night at the VIE x Digital Graffiti Age of Aquarius pre-party, and was greeted by prosecco-filled mini disco-ball cups, an insane flower wall backdrop for photos, and a huge pink carpet! This event was such a fun way to start off the night and I am already looking forward to VIE Magazine’s next digital graffiti pre-party, you all killed it!

Once inside the event my brother and I were starving so we quickly hunted down some of the delicious food. While sipping on some cocktails from the endless drink stops, we enjoyed many small plates as we walked amongst the art. My favorite art exhibit was an incredibly moving image of a running man struggling to make his way through a coliseum. Another favorite of mine was a building that looked like small waves and stripes, I took this fun picture standing in the art
