For the past four years my family and I have gone to the Great New York State Fair in Syracuse, NY, and we always have a great time! Because the fairgrounds consist mostly of gravel and sand, I keep it pretty low-key when dressing for the occasion. My one nod to glamour was my butter LONDON polish in Two-Fingered Salute and Julie Vos Corsica stacking rings. Everything else had to be able to deal with dirt, sunscreen, barbecue sauce, hay, bird droppings, even rain!

All of this means there was no way I could wear my favorite white jeans. I went with dark denim and my trusty J. Crew navy linen shirt. I wish I would’ve bought another one of these. I have worn it all summer long.

If you ever get a chance to visit the New York State Fair I highly recommend it. It usually runs for 12 days at the end of August and a few days into September. The food is terrific, there are a ton of interesting exhibits, great people watching, fun rides for the kids, and you can get the coldest (and best) milk ever for twenty-five cents a cup!
And don’t even get me started on the glamorous chickens and handsome roosters.
|What a good-looking fellow!|
|I love a glamorous chicken. I want a dress that looks like these feathers.|
|I always spend time seeing all the prize-winning cows.|
|Neon was everywhere.|
|The Rainbow Milk Bar is always popular.|
|The best, iciest chocolate milk ever! And only twenty-five cents.|
