Ah, fair season. I don’t know about you guys, but I think one of the best parts of Fall is getting to walk around with friends and hop on rickety roller coasters that may or may not collapse while on them. I would say that the fair is an acquired taste (like most of the food there), but still really fun. If anything it provided a colourful background for today’s outfit post so, why not? This was one of the only times when I really had to put function over fashion. Being “that girl” in a dress and heels was not what I had in mind for the afternoon. Although one can’t really overdo it with the function so I grabbed some sparkley tights. My friends could definitely find me when I got lost in the crowd (on numerous occasions). I also finally got to wear out my One Teaspoon Romeos, which are scandalously short sans tights. I also wanted to be a little colourful because, let’s get real, wearing all black to the fair is a little morbid. So hello, cute little cactus crop and sorbet jacket that makes me feel like Nancy Drew.
I think that the day was pretty successful, ending in candied treats for everyone- we tried to find the classiest food stand and we found chocolate covered strawberries, along with my Cheesecake-on-a-Stick (covered in chocolate too…).

As a junior in high school, there seem to be lots of things this year to commemorate the fact that we are almost graduated. One of them being our “junior ring ceremony”. If your school doesn’t have one of these (consider yourself lucky), it’s basically this really long banquet in which every student has to pick a teacher to say a mini speech about them, we all dress pretty fancy, and then we get our class rings. Unfortunately, since the Jostens rigs are so expensive, it kind of turns into a big joke. Luckily for me, my parents thought it was a good investment and I got to design this little gold ring with a pink stone and diamonds on the sides (thanks mom and dad). You can check out my instagram for a picture of the ring (@astridmoet) and I don’t mean to be sappy, but I really love it and know it’s something I can keep forever.
As for the clothes.. The night before said Junior Ring Ceremony was spent searching for the perfect dress. It had to be school appropriate (but do I ever follow dress code anyway…) and I mean of course preferably black. I found a couple of dresses and this was the crowd’s least favourite. Despite the scoffs of my best friends, I fell in love with this unique lbd. I really loved the honey comb-esque sleeve cutouts and how it was simple and clean but still different. Oh also the necklace was a little present for my mom, so I went against my natural instincts and had to accessorize with silver instead of gold. And if anyone’s wondering the night went well… I didn’t trip on stage so I would say it was successful.
