The lake is very pretty and peaceful and you really feel far from the city even though its only an hour and 15 minute drive from Jersey City where we live and maybe an hour and forty five minutes from Manhattan.
As I've said many times before on this blog vintage style can definitely be casual and I wore one of my favorite casual summer outfits for our trip to the lake. I've definitely worn parts of this outfit on the blog before, but its so cute I think it deserved its own post.
The red gingham top is from Swell Dame and is a perfect 1950s style casual top. The jeans are clam diggers from Freddie's of Pinewood and would probably be longer on a person of normal height, on me their pedal pushers. My shoes are the remix canvas pennies and are super comfortable. The belt I borrowed from one of my Bernie Dexter dresses. I feel very 50s casual in this outfit!
The purse is really something special, its a 1950s novelty purse with a horse on it! I love anything with an animal on it and this is my first vintage horse accessory.
Incidentally is 38 too old for pig tails? Obviously I don't think so. This whole outfit makes me feel very young and carefree.
We had a good time walking around the lake:
We also waded a bit of course and tried the kayaking. I really enjoyed kayaking, but didn't take any pictures.
It was a perfect end of summer day. How do you like to celebrate the end of summer?
