Ragtime Street Fair

This past weekend my husband, Joe, and I headed over to Greenfield Village for their “Ragtime Street Fair”. Greenfield Village was founded by Henry Ford and holds historical homes and buildings from American history. I recently bought a membership there, so I’ve been taking advantage of the many events they hold such as this past weekend’s.

Our outfits for the Ragtime Street Fair are all clothes we owned just put together to (somewhat) fit into the era of the early 20th century. I took a straw boater hat from Forever 21 and replaced the plain black ribbon with a much cuter navy and white striped one. I paired it with a white linen fit and flare dress and boat shoes. My husband wore a white collared shirt with seersucker pants, my grandpa’s old newsboy cap, and boat shoes. Check out my photos from our day which include our ride in an authentic 1924 Model T.
