Farewell Sweet Friend

It is brisk, people. Yesterday on the way to work I had to pop into a store to buy tights or else I'd die from pneumonia before I'd make it to the lobby.  And people here get rather offended if you don't dress right for the weather. I got straight up scathing looks for my bare legs; I could have sworn I heard gasps and tsks as I made my way down the block.  It's as if I had my gypsy dress on or something, good Lord.

So let's look through these pictures, in all their sunshine and bare-armmed glory. They were taken on Sunday, when my brothers and I went to our suburb's fair. And what a fair it was! American flags littered the space like confetti a parade, and there were farm animals, bails of hay, stalks of corn, and ice cream cones galore.

This is my suburban life now. Roosters and walks down graveled roads. Sigh.

Dress (worn as dress)- UO
Pants- Target (for only $7- go get them!!)

  7. I love the print on this top! I feel like people look at me sometimes and whisper behind my back at what I wear, but they're old and have no style so I just ignore it!

  12. Oooh, such a sweet bow print blouse! I like how you paired it with some lilac shorts.
    Haha, and yeah, the remake of Red Riding Hood wasn't the best, I'll agree. I remember that dance scene now that you bring it up - totally awkward! xD

  18. I love the sheepies and this is the perfect fair attired! Colorado did the same thing with the weather earlier this week, and all I could think was: Hannah you were wishing for this. Now it's back to summer weather to confuse me. I can't believe you can pull of tucking in a dress like that, even when I tuck in my blouse I look pretty frumpalicious, and you don't at all!
    Happy Wednesday,
    Hannah

  29. Thank you so much for your advice on the fashion show! You are every so lucky to be in the sun, back here in England it's non-stop rain and I feel myself getting more pale by the day. I love the J Crew belt, belts always seem to add something extra to an outfit for me. Gorgeously summery!

  45. Oh my goodness this outfit is SO cute, I love the dress/top.

    In Texas we scowl at people wearing sweaters when it's in the mid 80's outside. Crazy people everywhere, eh?
