The Emerald Necklace

Time is moving so, so quickly!!! I'm moving out of my apartment in two weeks and moving to California in three!!! Ah!!!!!! I don't even want to update you on my packing progress ... I think I have a total of 4 boxes packed (gulp) but, maybe there will be some all-nighters to come. All-nighters and day trips, cuz no way am I missing out on summertime in New England. Yesterday I was hoping to visit New Hampshire with Jeff but instead we got cupcakes and bubble tea and hung around some little spot in Brookline (I really love living near the The Emerald Necklace, exploring is always the perfect go-to on uncertain summer days)

The Emerald Necklace


This is a little outfit I hope to wear to the Woodstock Fair (northern Connecticut, not New York) which is one of my childhood's summer staples. Typical county fair type stuff. Biggest pumpkin contests, fried food, and carnival rides. There's something about a colorful striped skirt that yells ferris wheel and cotton candy, oh and that zebra gum too!

The Emerald Necklace


Anyway, enough chatter. I have so much sewing and packing and sewing to do it's unreal. More to come though - I just realized I'm already two blog posts behind what I have pictures for!

You look perfect darling!!! Summer in New England doesn't last very long so I understand you taking advantage of it! Good look with all your packing! I'm moving to a new house in 11 days so I'm doing lots of packing too :o)

That outfit is absolutely ideal for a fair. How fun that sounds! I live in California..and so far, I haven't found a lovely fair to attend :/

What part of California are you moving to/why are you moving? I went to college in LA so lived there for four years (before moving here to Chicago). I love the combo of the colourful skirt and the white top, it seems like you have lots of fun places to explore in New England. :)

I love the stripes on your skirt. They just pop! The Emerald Necklace looks like a beautiful place. Mmm, I hope you don't become too stressed packing and getting things done!

That item is as sweet as can be, and YES it does scream ferris wheel and cotton candy. You Americans make me all kinds of envious with your talk of traditional country fairs. x

You look darling balancing on that wall. And I have never understood why packing has always been so difficult. Unpacking can be even harder!

So clever, I hadn't thought of that gum in years but you are right on the money... or gum with that comparison. Lovely setting and photos.

Amy said...

What a lovely outfit! I just found your blog and I think it wonderful.

I had to smile with this one - I read the Woodstock Fair and surely thought you could not be talking about the fair 2 towns over from me. But you were! How great, it is such a nice fair. Enjoy!

Manja said...

You look so wonderful! Packing is no fun...and unpacking stops being fun after an hour or so, haha. I will have to do that a few times next year :(

You look like you stepped out of a dream! And good luck on your move to California. I'm from the Bay Area and I miss my home state so much!

I just love your photos! You have a very talented photo taking friend and your outfits have inspired me to wear my love of vintage more often...thank you for that! :)

Jessica said...

The best!! You always have the sweet sweet sweetest outfits! I especially love that skirt! It's so true...Zebra gum (my favorite forever and ever!) and ferris wheels here you come! Maybe a trip to Coney Island too, while you're at it? A-dorable as always!
