Outfit: Sidewalk Arts Festival

Hello there gems! I had quite the busy weekend. It was my sister's birthday so we had the family over and took the nephews for a trip to the apple orchard! It was a blast, to say the least. I haven't had the chance to edit pictures yet because yesterday the hubby's family got together as his father is helping us paint our house this week! So I will post orchard pictures on Wednesday :)
So, here are some photos of what I wore to a sidewalk arts festival that was in town a couple of weeks ago. The streets of our downtown were filled with vendors selling all of their crafts and such. It is always a fun event, even though I never buy anything. It is just fun to walk around and see all of the unique things people can make! There is one item I want to save up for and buy next year though. There is a vendor who makes jewelry out of vintage silverware, and their bracelets are just the most beautiful thing, the handles of the spoons wrapped and held together with a bit of chain. So lovely!

It turned out to be too warm for a jacket, but I couldn't help it, this tan coat just seemed to  fit the aesthetic I was going for, which is more and more becoming a 16 year old girl in 1943. The age my soul is. You know how that goes.

Have a great start to your week friends! I will try to be more diligent about posting this week, but I have a crazy one ahead of me, so we will see how that goes.

God Bless!

Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.

Wonderful outfit- and I totally see the inspiration in it you mentioned! I could see this look on a gal in a great black and white photo from the 1940s!

You look so cute! I love the colors and especially love the addition of that tan coat. So perfect for fall!

Aaaw, I would have loved to see those bracelets! :D
You're so pretty here, the clips are lovely and adore the pleated skirt with those sporty shoes. Can't get enough of your awesome hair too!

Eeeek, you are just the cutest lady! How is it that you so perfectly mesh hair and outfit and accessories like you do? It's as if they were all made for each other. I bet you were the cutest one at the Sidewalk Festival. :D I love little markets and such like that where you can just walk around and see what everyone has--I recently found one close to the college where they sell vintage items for actually CHEAP! and it was the most amazing thing to stumble across.

Have a wonderful week, my sweet Katie!

Sounds like a fun event and your outfit seems very fitting for the occasion- there's just a hint of fall in this outfit somehow...
