What To Wear: The Country Fair

Last night my husband, some friends, and I headed out to the annual fair to walk around and watch the Demolition Derby. We stayed away from the carnival rides and instead checked out the “prize winning” animals on display. We ended the night watching the Demolition Derby – which is where people drive old junk cars into each other. It’s more fun than it sounds, I promise!

I kept it simple by wearing J Crew’s “Perfect Plaid” shirt, cuffed jeans, and my new booties. I’ve been seeing a lot of short booties for fall, and I’ve also been wanting a pair of boots that are more western. I think these are a good mix of both and I love the gold detail on the toe. There aren’t many left (and I got the last 7.5), but you can find them here on Amazon.

Basic tips on dressing for the fair – dress for the weather, go as hands-free as possible (think crossbody bag), and wear comfortable shoes. Since this was a country setting, I think it’s appropriate to dress down and choose an outfit more suited for that occasion. Denim, plaid, and cotton are all great choices for a subtle country look.
