Summerfest


Fishtale braid compliments of my brother's girlfriend 

The South End Blues Band at Summerfest!

Dress (Max Studio find at Marshalls); Hat & Earrings (Target);  Shoes (Kohls)

On any given weekend in the summer you can find a concert series, fair, or festival... and an easy look for these events that combines fashion and function is a dress, hat, and braid. The biggest summer party in Milwaukee WI is called Summerfest, and my Dad's blues band played on one of the main stages this year!  They put on a great show, and it was one of those rare times the family was all together for something other than a holiday - although I'm sure my Dad would count the event as holiday worthy ;)

"Love the subtle sophistication of your summer music look. The lines play off
one another with the delicate balance of fragrance, color and aroma in a fine
wine. And that band ain't half-bad either!"
