The Great State Fair of Texas was this month and for the third year in a row, I indulged.

Part of the fun of this tradition is collecting pictures from year to year so a girl must be well dressed!

This look is super comfy and fairly inexpensive to achieve. I love a fine knit with dolman sleeves, so this striped sweater was an obvious purchase. The grey version below, by Enza Costa, is a cotton/ cashmere blend and it is reversible!

Be sure to get your shorts super big, almost to the point of falling off. I suggest this pair from Forever21 that is only $7! Ditch the belt and tuck the side of your shirt to show off your waistband.

To accessorize, grab a pair of neutral oxfords, your favorite fedora (zappos has the best selection by far) and a leather hobo.

VENZedits Tip: This look works because of the monochromatic layers. Tans worked for me, but greys or blacks might work for you.
