A simple outfit for a vibrant arts festival.  We packed up the munchkin and went down to the Kaleido festival on Alberta Avenue last weekend. It was our first time going and I had no real idea what to expect, so I kept it simple. A monochrome column of navy with a light cardigan and flats.

Cardigan: Banana Republic / CPW: $13.02 / # of wears: 3
T-Shirt: Twik / CPW: $0.87 / # of wears: 12
Pants: Banana Republic (thrifted) / CPW: $0.26 / # of wears: 15
Shoes: Poppy Barley / CPW: $2.62 / # of wears 70

It was four streets of mixed music, dance, and visual art installations of all forms. It seemed like they were still setting up when we got there, but it was good overall. I’d go again. It seems like it would be fun in the evening.

It was a little breezy while we were there, but the close proximity to food trucks didn’t hurt…

Butter chicken poutine from The Dog food truck at the Kaleido Festival on 118th Ave. Not even remotely healthy, but so worth it. (Hubby had the Trailer Trash Dog – local beef sausage topped in mac and cheese.)

Really plain, but it worked. With munchkin toddling at full speed, comfort and ease of movement is the name of the game.

Do you have any favourite festivals? What do you wear when you head out?
