The bad news is the weekend’s forecast: “Northeast wind gusts of 30-40 mph continue as well, especially near the coastline through midday Saturday. The clouds will stay rather thick through Sunday as the persistent northeast wind continues to bring moisture in off the ocean…”
The good news: The Norman Bird Sanctuary has been rocking the Harvest Fair for 40 years, so the foul weather on tap for is nothing but a drop in the bucket (in this case, literally) when it comes to what they can handle.
With 22,000 square feet of the fair under tents, it’s simple to dodge the raindrops and enjoy all the food, festivities, flowers, artisan and quintessential family fall fun. The fields will be wet and the winds whipping at this autumnal ritual for generations of families , so here’s some suggested functional fashion.
1. FOOTWEAR Leave the leather boots and pretty shoes at home and opt for Hunter or Le Chameau wellies paired with skinny jeans or leggings. If looking to sport boyfriend jeans or pants that don’t tuck seamlessly into a tall boot, you’l love the Rockport Women’s Lorraine Lite II Chelsea Boot:
2. ON TOP Layer, layer, layer. Try pairing a favorite cable knit sweater with one of the new Dizzy Lizzie vests:
3. EVERY INCH Layer with a long scarf you can loop around your neck or when it warms up, you can let loose. Check out these lux silk and cashmere Chan Luu scarves from Laura Jean Denim:
4. ON THE VERY TOP It’s going to be raw out there, so keep your noggin warm with a knit slouchy or beret hat:
IN a nutshell: dress warmly, layer for comfort and warmth, don’t be caught in the middle of a soggy field and surrounded by nothing but fun ithout being prepared. For event details including ticket prices, schedules, food vendors and artisans, etc., CLICK HERE.
