I love a good street fair as much as the next guy... it's true that I hate the crowds, but I love the food. So when The Festival of Arts opened in downtown Grand Rapids this past weekend it was my number one goal to a) get there early (beat the crowds) and b) get my slimy little hands on an elephant ear. It was a touch on the cool side and I was feeling like classic and simple. So I took the plunge on the denim "suit". I know some may not love the look, but I was a fan.
The key here was that the jeans were a very dark rinse and the jacket was a more destructed light color. The contrast of the two made it seem more intentional, less like an accident, I guess. Does that make sense?
This scarf is vintage, I just love all of the colors. So summery. I am also loving that these more handkerchief style scarves are available in stores now as well. I have three of them, all found at antique or thrift stores... so check there if you want some in fun colors before all the hipsters snatch them up!
How was your weekend? Were there any elephant ears involved??? mmmm..... I like mine with cinnamon and sugar or powdered sugar!
