Style Inspiration: Labor Day Weekend at the Fair

I have to admit it’s been forever since we’ve visited the fair. The last time was at the Minnesota State Fair-our son was just 3 years old. He’s now 9. I know… Needless to say, we were all pretty excited for a day of rides, games, and cotton candy.Toes filled with dirt and dress full of hay… At the end of the day, I was a mess. I didn’t care. The weather was perfect and we had a great time-our son played nearly every game (yep, we got sucked in). Although, we did leave with a handful of carnival wins.The Look: You may remember, this is the same maxi dress I wore during our trip to Maui. It’s a favorite. I just love the bright color, but knew it would be too chilly to wear alone. Adding a cropped sweater worked great as a coverup. And putting these two pieces together instantly created this colorblock effect-looove!! I went for a flirty retro vibe with leopard wayfarers and a vintage crossbody bag. Jewelry was simple, but still felt very substantial with this “fireworks” necklace and floral bangle. And of course, had to go comfy with flat gladiator sandals.
