cute outfit for a summer fest

Over the long, fabulous weekend (wasn’t it great?!) we went to the Naperville Ribfest.  Yes, it was as good as it sounded!  BBQ for blocks, carnival rides for the kids, and live music…it’s what summer is all about!

Needless to say, when one goes to a “rib fest” white – or any other light color – is not going to be something that you wear.

Printed dresses are always my savior!  I’m sure I have a barbecue sauced hand print or two on this dress in these pictures…but you can’t even tell!  That’s the magic with a printed dress.

I also love wearing hats to festivals.  It keeps my hair out of the way and it also gives me a little protection from the summer sun.

Here’s a few more dresses and hats that would be perfect for nearly any summer festival.  I would totally mix and match the hats with all three dresses, but I know that baseball hats might scare some of you.  Personally, I love baseball hats with dress.  It’s a nice mix of masculine and feminine.

All these dresses and hats need are a cute pair of sandals and a crossbody bag!  What do you end up wearing for a day of eating and playing?
