This is an outfit I wore last weekend to attend a local festival: the Ellsworth Cheese Curd Festival.
Last year my husband and I attended the event and although we had a great time we felt there was need for improvement and I wrote about it in a travel post. One of the organizers of the event read my blog post about it and encouraged me to visit again next year. I promised I would so we marked it on our calendars and off we went with our DSLR hoping to try all the cheese curd dishes and write a raving, new blog post.
Well, it was a disaster. So there will be no new blog post. The festival, which usually averages between 2500-5000 visitors hit the record books with 30,000 people!!!!! Wow! That's amazing! But the lines were so long and unbearable (a 3 hour long wait in the cheese curd line alone), that we couldn't take it and left. Many of the vendors also ran out of food, because no one was expecting that many people. We ended up driving to another local town to have lunch because we were starving.
But the good news is that we found a new, local good place to eat. I can't believe we lived in the area for 20 years and have never heard of this place before. And, I have an outfit to share with you.
I wore a red cold shoulder top and white shorts (both old from JCPenney) and accented the outfit with silver: a silver headband, silver sandals, silver bag, and silver and red jewelry.
Headbands and hats are my best friends in summer. I don't like wearing my hair in a pony tail unless I'm gardening, so headbands are the next best thing to pulling the hair away from my face and off my neck in hot weather. I own at least a dozen of them, so I always have one to match my outfit.
The earrings are handmade and a gift from a co-worker when I use to work full time.
I do have one new item in this outfit to show you and that's these athletic sandals. OH MY GOSH ladies are these sport sandals comfortable! If you're looking for a sandal that you can walk all day in and feel like your floating on air, these are the pair for you! They are called Franco Sarto Olsen Wedge Sandals and I got them from DSW. They also come in black and white. I love them so much I might buy another pair in black!
My cold shoulder top has a little button on the sleeve and a split; so it's super comfy to wear. The material also covers the heaviest part of my arm, making it more flattering than many of the cold shoulder tops out there.
Well, as I stated earlier, we didn't stay at the Festival, but we did find a cute restaurant to dine at in a nearby town. It's name is Corral Bar and Grill and it is located in Durand, Wisconsin. It has gorgeous river views. You could choose to eat inside or out and with these views and perfect weather, we chose to eat out!
Sometimes I feel with all my Stitch Reviews you don't see what I actually wear. So here I am! I do post my daily outfits on Instagram in my Instastories, if I remember...haha! I forgot to post what I wore to church on Sunday! And I do have more posts in my files coming of outfits I really did wear!
Well, we had to order cheese curds since we didn't get any at the festival. They were good, but no where near as good as the cheese curds we had at the festival last year.
Our food however was delicious and very reasonably priced. When you travel as much as we do you get used to seeing high prices on menus. It was nice to see more affordable prices back home! Would you believe each of our plates only cost $7.95 and our drinks were only $1.35? If only we could find these prices when we travel!
I order Broasted Chicken. Not sure what "broasted" is suppose to be, but it tasted fried to me. It doesn't matter. It wasn't a "diet day" for me and it was delicious. But it was the french fries that really had me! Wow! These were good! Best french fries I've had in my life. Or was I just starving so much anything tasted as "The Best I've Had In My Life". Hard to know!
Well, enough of food and fun, and back to the fashion. If I repeat a fashion item, I love to show you how I styled it in the past.
Here I styled it with skinny jeans.

And now for more 4th of July ideas!
I wish I could be one of those bloggers that can show you what I'm wearing, making, or creating for holidays ahead of time to give you some ideas, but I'm not! By the time I get around to posting my holiday outfits or creations, the event is over! But you can always search old posts using my search bar!
I can however show you what Alethea and I will be wearing for the 4th Of July. I will be wearing this star t-shirt, red linen shorts, white sandals, white sunnies, and probably a white hat or headband.
I have never worn anything in-your-face Patriotic for the 4th below but when I saw this star shirt at JCPenney for a mere $5.00 I thought "Why Not?" Stars in general are a very popular print, and I thought I could get more use out of this tee after the holiday is over too!
Here's the red linen shorts I bought. Aren't they cute? I think I only paid $12.00 for them. They will be perfect with the hot weather in the forecast.
And here is Alethea's Outfit. Isn't it adorable? Would you believe a neighbor brought this over to my daughter just a few days ago? Isn't that a sweet thought? The outfit is so kitschy it's cute! Alethea will look adorable in it and she and I will have some fun photographs together!
