Youth Fair Outfit

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).

Chocolate dipped ice cream cone

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.

Top: J. Crew (available here)
Scarf: c/o Benevolent Jewels (old)

  3. Your scarf is very cute and the ice cream, of course, looks yummy!

  4. I have a friend in Miami that invited me to the fair, and these pictures and the ice cream might just be my motivation, can they add rice crispy to the ice cream? (it totally looks like one I used to eat in Colombia)

    And fair food is usually something people think of as junk...but at the Sonoma Co. Fair, we actually have some decent food. That's the only reason why I'm going this year, too...LOL! I feel you, girl!
