One of our adventures this weekend brought us to the OC Fair, which has become a family tradition to visit every summer. Rachel also happened to tweet they were going to go to their local fair, so we agreed it would be fun to see what vintage wears we give some lovin' for both our family trips to the fair.
We went to the fair first thing Saturday morning because it was only 2 bucks to get in and it was kinda lovely going that early because it wasn't crowded and the heat hadn't set in yet. We didn't spend too long at the fair, since we had just been at Disneyland the day before and things at the fair are kind of expensive (We spent more there than at Disneyland, granted we got into Disneyland for free cause my sister works there.). We let the girls ride a few rides, did our traditional photo booth pictures, went to our traditional photo spots, and grabbed something to eat. Ben and I have concluded fair food smells better than it tastes and isn't really worth the money (at least for us). Will this stop us from coming back next year? Probably not. It's tradition after all.
Can you believe next year when we go we will have 4 little ones?! I can't wait to see that picture.
We didn't all wear vintage on this day. True and Brave wore one of our fave children labels, Misha Lulu, which they often wear if they aren't wearing vintage. The summer staple you see the girls wearing all the time are Saltwater Sandals. Those really are the best summer shoes around and we have them in about every color and every size. They are worth every penny, especially since I can pass them down between all my kids. Our most recent acquisition are True's brown ones which were given to us from Tea.
Soul and I were the only ones sportin' some re-loved goodies. Soulie's nautical top would be especially cute with some sailor pants, which are on my to-do list to make. Don't you think sailor pants with that top would be adorable on my little babe?
on me: dress, vintage (thrifted and altered). belt, forever21. shoes, vintage via capricious traveler.
Summer is quickly fading away with the school year fast approaching. Though, I know here in Southern California the heat sticks around until mid-October, so we will definitely still be dressing for the warmer weather. I am also getting our wardrobe ready for the Fall and when it is time for me to pull out all my shirt dresses again. It will be back to nursing for me soon enough...
Pretties for the heat and for the cool: peachy keen, gingham wiggle, salmon floral, girl scouts, and dorothy dress.
I could totally see any of those dresses paired with some cute sandals for the summer and some boots or oxfords layered with a sweater for the fall. The only things I am loving about summer is the plethora of tomatoes we are getting and the fact I am addicted to sandals. Other than that, I am totally ready for fall to make an arrival.
Make sure you go "over there" and see what the Denbows wore on their trip to the fair. According to Rachel, it was hot, hot, hot in Missouri!
