When summer arrives in Seattle, the city comes alive. Summer festivals, warm sun, beautiful blooms, cute and casual summer outfits, the fresh breeze off of Puget Sound and the hustle and bustle of tourists and locals enjoying the outdoors is hard to beat. I swear the sunny weather melts away the “Seattle Freeze” and reminds us why we love our city so much.
A Seattle activity I can’t resist come summertime is the allure of the visiting carnival. Almost every suburb of Seattle has their own celebration, featuring carnival rides, food vendors, local artisans, and musical performances. My friend Megan and I ventured north of the city to enjoy an evening at the fair.

Bright flashing lights, colorful rides, and the sweet smells of elephant ears, strawberry shortcake, and cotton candy filled the air as we walked through the carnival. I couldn’t resist snapping a few photos of this cute little striped long blazer and coordinating striped shorts from the LC Lauren Conrad line at Kohl’s. A Coca-Cola Graphic Tee was the perfect pop of color, and of course, I couldn’t forget to grab a bottle of the real thing to sip on!
