fun at the fair

What to wear on a warm autumn day for a fair? I decided to go for a dress that I took on my summer holiday and team it with a jumper and ankle boots to give it an autumnal feel. 

A great colour match; bag, booties and leaves!

We had an absolutely amazing time at the annual Goose Fair in Nottingham. I have never been before but I will definitely be back next year! It dates back 700 years and is apparently called the Goose Fair because geese were brought here to be sold. It took us about five hours to see it all.

I love all the colours against the sky; spectacular!

I love hook-a-duck, a fair is just not the same without one. There were so many different stalls selling all types of street food but I went for the traditional mushy peas and mint sauce. Yummy comfort food on a cool evening. There is a number one rule when you are at a fair; always eat a toffee apple and candy floss!!

Having a quiet moment before we tackled the crowds again!

This ride was by far the best one I went on! This picture doesn't do it justice but you can just see how it swings up into the air at top speed before twisting back down again! Wow!!

You kind of get an idea of the scale of the rides when you look at this photo. I was amazed by the whole experience! I did not want to leave!

Being here reminded me how long it is since I went to Alton Towers. I think a trip is in order soon!

    1. Thank you so much Maya. I love the fact I can keep wearing summer dresses in the autumn by wearing a jumper over the top. :-)

  2. Your pictures from the fair are brilliant. It sounds like a lot of fun. I was actually reading about the Goose Fair a couple of days ago (I can't recall where now) and thinking I'd like to go to it - you're pictures have convinced me, I must try to go next year :)

    1. Glad you like them Louise, you will love it. We were there for hours and I don't think we saw it all! I will be going every year from now on. :-)

    I love the dress
    I love that combination, dress, sweater, boots, so comfortable for fall!
    I'm not a fan of fairs, to crowded for me, but nice to see you enjoyed it so much
