As a kid in Miami the highlight of your March is going to the the Youth Fair, aka The Fair, aka Miami-Dade County Fair and Expo. It has a lot of names. 

You can say The Fair is quite repetitive, with very little changing year to year. But it's a classic Miamian pastime, and one that Nestor and I participate in every year. We don't go for the rides, the circus or petting zoo, the performances, the expositions-- we go solely for the food. The delicious, artery-clogging, overpriced fair food. 

Our favorites: corn on the cob dipped in butter and topped with salt, and the yummy chicken gyros across from where the Double Looper used to be (for any of you Miamians-- they have the BEST gyros in the fair).

That ice cream cone took me so long to eat! Haha.

As for my outfit, I always like to dress like spring for the fair. 
The nostalgic vintage-lover in me would love to dress like Allie from The Notebook in those scenes where she meets Noah, or like the Downton Abbey women when they had that amusement park thing. But alas, it's 2014 in Miami. Little feminine details like an adorable colorful scarf and cute spring wedges will have to do!

P.S. I took these photos with my phone, not my Nikon.
