It’s amazing to see what folks wear to the State Fair.
In addition to just walking around, YA and I have two times every day at the fair to just sit and watch the fair world go by: while waiting for the dog dock diving show and the parade. For both of these, you really need to score a good seat about 30 minutes ahead of time.
The basic uniform for the fair is shorts and a shirt. Of course, shorts covers a lot of ground: khakis, cut-offs, lycra/spandex. Long, short, shorter and really short. All kinds of colors. Men tend to t-shirts – lots of sports logos and graphic tees, although not very many political slogans this year. Women wear a bigger variety of shirts – some graphic tees but more casual print tops. From very loose to painted on.
An overwhelming number of woman wear sandals, some high heels, some tennis shoes. Men are almost all about tennies. A few sandals but not many.
Of course, there are lots of other outfits – joggers, yoga pants, jeans, the occasional dress or skirt. Some folks are strutting their stuff, others are pretty well covered up. If you can imagine it, somebody is probably wearing it at the fair.
Me and YA? We’re right in line with the majority of fairgoers. I’m khaki shorts, print top, birkenstocks. YA is black shorts, solid color top, birkenstocks. Every now and then I might wear a t-shirt, but not so far this year!
Have you ever had to wear a uniform?
