Run Blue Run
Joie Silk Dress (consigment) / Free People Belt and Sandals / Isabel Marant scarf for H&M c/o H&M / Coch Bucket Bag (thrifted)
Fall is here, the weather has chilled and the kids are back to school. I don't know where the summer went but it went by fast! These photos are from the carnival a little while back, 3 years ago the ride provider for the Tanana State Fair spilt from the fair and has been running their own separate carnival and it is a blast. They have wrist bands for kids with unlimited rides and with a discount of half of this year, it made for a great afternoon of fun for the kids - I can't even count how many times they rode the Gravitron! We really got our money's worth out of those wristbands and then packed our own water bottles and food to keep costs down. However, looking back I don't see how my parents were able to do as much as they did with six children, just two seems so expensive at times! We did back to school shopping and even with grandparents spoiling them, it seems like there was so many things to get.
Anyways, about the outfit, I found this dress at our local consignment shop before it closed down, a little over a year ago, and this was the first I'd taken photos of it. It's a very lovely thick silk but I need to sew a little button so the wrap part of the skirt doesn't fly up! I worn my tall sandals again and had much better luck with them stying up for an afternoon of walking around. I received this scarf from the collaboration H&M did with Isabel Marant almost four years ago and it's my most worn scarf - it's held up extremely well with no pulls and it's probably one of my most worn accessories. I think I would cry real tears if it was ever lost or ruined!
