At the races - Remix #8


For Father's Day yesterday my brothers and I and Josh took my dad to Portland International Raceway to watch the Rose Cup car races. It was pretty awesome. We saw a crash about 20 feet away (where thankfully no one got hurt), and got to gasp over how close the cars were driving to each other at 120 miles an hour. And between races we strolled around and looked at all the wonderful old cars people brought. I didn't see my dream car (a baby blue 1957 Chevy), but there were some find old Fords, and some sporty little Porsches. And it was fun to hang out with my brothers again - they both just moved back from California after years of living away. We're a fine looking bunch of siblings, aren't we? This is about as good as pictures ever get with us:




 I loved this outfit. I felt straight out of the 1940's, with my mid-length skirt, fitted waist, and casual blouse with the sleeves rolled up. I'm pretty sure this is something my grandma would have worn during the War. And these shoes - I can't say enough good things about them. They are so comfortable. I walked for miles yesterday, and stood on my feet quite a bit looking at old cars, but my feet felt great afterwards. I have other shoes that are flashier and more interesting, but these are by far the most walkable, and absolutely worth the $48 that they cost.



Silk blouse: free from aunt
Skirt: thrifted from Rerun

  1. I know this is a fashion blog but I just love the old cars, they make everything classy.(OK, maybe not your brothers but that was one bad group photo.)
