California County Fair in Kariella Fashion

All hail the venerated day of painted faces, elephant ears, of 'three rings for a giant stuffed giraffe!' If you can hit the roaming bull's-eye, dunk the lovely lady, ride the ride without the urge to puke, then why not do it all in classic carnival fashion? And we mean that quite literally, for here at Kariella, we've got the killer outfit(s) for every hallowed act, be it a trek through the house of mirrors, a scare in the haunted house, a spin on the merry-go-round, etc. etc. etc...you get the general idea. So if you're planning on having a proper experience at the county fair this year, here's what you're going to need...

Retro Overalls

Boho light wash women's overalls

Careful not to lose this hat on the Yo-Yo, but you'll need it for this outfit. Because what's a bit of denim-on-denim, and then a little more denim at that? This retro look  is durable for the county fair with a denim hat for sun protection, stretchy denim overalls, and a light, cotton graphic t-shirt to keep you cool in the sun. Who says style isn't functional?

Notice the difference between these overalls and your everyday buckle-ups. We've got the suspender-style overalls with a flare going for us this year, and you're not going to want to miss it either. Perfect for showing off your favorite graphic tee. And if you don't have a favorite, feel free to try one of ours.

Animal Print Dresses

No Marilyn Maneuver's going to save you in this getup, so best hold onto your hem when coasting over potential hidden air ducts. Or, you know, wear your favorite panties as a precaution...

As wild prints are roarin' up a storm this year, rock your local county fair in something fierce like our favored cheetah print shift dress. Top it off with a statement tribal necklace and a linen haori-type duster. We paired this animal print mini dress with a chic pair of bohemian ankle boots. Feel free to do the same.

Flirty Summer Dresses

yellow halter sundress

Perhaps the ultimate go-to item for every summer affair, a sundress that hits above the knee takes the cake on comfy, cute, and incredibly versatile. Dress it up or down with a pair of scrappy heels or cowgirl boots, or even simple tennies. Add a hat, a jacket, or just wear it by itself. And the best part about this particular sundress: it's adjustable!

Please note that every one of our Lagoon Minis has a one-of-a-kind print, so give us a call at our individual stores to get the scoop on all your options!
