The weather was ahmazing this weekend so we spent a lot of time outside doing all the fun things it's usually too hot to do! The fair was in town so we stopped in for a while to check it out but I was most excited about the funnel cake..topped with Bavarian creme and strawberries, omg. Def a once a year thing, we couldn't even finish it! I loved all of the animals at the petting zoo and I may have rushed in front of a small child to pet the baby pig and mini horse. I want to have a farm one day with only short animals..tall things scare me and there was a slightly creepy uncle sam dude on stilts that snuck up behind me..they can smell fear haha
i wore my favorite plaid shirt from the 50's, i adore the puff sleeves and pan collar

one of my favorites, i loved this one as a kid!

I took Clementine out for a long bike ride and a picnic at the park, it was so nice to just sit under the trees and catch up on some of my vintage books. We've collected so many but I can never seem to find time to just relax and read, I love the smell of the old pages and the crack of a dusty spine. I wish every summer weekend was this amazing, can you believe it's already the middle of August?!

nice hair haha

Clementine got quite the did my thighs

I hope everyone had a fun weekend!

love this post and the feeling it gives
you when reading it ... just that whole
late summer hazy feel - love your glasses,
real adorable ... all the pics of you look
like they're from some super cool editorial
you'd see in a mag!

I love fairs. I have been wanting to go to one all summer but I haven't found one yet! I would do anything for some funnel cake and a ride on the ferris wheel. These pictures are just wonderful. xx

Love all these pictures, so inspirational. I especially love funnel cake, so now that you have me drooling I'll try and distract myself from all the calories I want but don't need haha. I love your bike too!
