Last week I won a pair of tickets to the Champlain Valley Fair from the wonderful folks at Heritage Automotive Group so this past Friday D and I headed to the fair for a good old fashion date night. It was fun to walk through the exhibit halls and explore all of the vendor’s booths (am I the only one who was surprised to learn that you can buy RVs at the fair?) We found a perfect spot to munch on our maple cotton candy and just enjoyed the beautiful summer night.
I kept my look casual but cute for our date night. This white dress has been hiding in the back of my closet for over a year and it was about time to take it out for a spin. The denim button up and bright jewelry kept my look fun while the boots added a perfect touch of vintage. I bought these boots about a year ago at Old Gold, a great clothing boutique in Burlington that has a constantly changing collection of well worn in boots.
My favorite detailing on the boots is the burn pattern that’s on the back right boot. It looks the original owner left the boots too close to an older radiator or heating grate. I think the marks give the boots character and since I bought them broken in I’m not scared to wear them out to places where they may get dirty or more beat up, like the fair.
Would you buy scarred up boots or invest in a new pair? What did you do this weekend?
