Sunfest - The Last Roundup

I had stopped to admire the woman's embroidered cowboy boots (see photo below), and she told me they lived in Detroit, and this was the first time they had attended Sunfest.  I thought they both had a great look, from her flat-crowned hat and gorgeous boots, to his bright shirt and waxed moustache.

This woman also had some kick-ass boots

Love, love, love the colour!  She found them in Kensington Market in Toronto

These two women were working in the Fairies Pyjamas booth.  I always look for them at Sunfest and end up taking something home from their booth.  This year it was the leather cuff that I'm wearing in my "Frida" post, and a great cloth shoulder bag.

I had seen these mustard yellow sandals in one of my favourite stores, but alas, they didn't fit me, so I was happy to see that at least one other person appreciated their cheerful colour and cool "old-lady shoe" aesthetic.

There you have it folks, the style from on and off stage that captured my eye at Sunfest this year.  Enjoy the rest of London's summer festivals - Home County is this coming weekend!


  1. THOSE EMBROIDERED COWBOY BOOTS ARE FAAABULOUS!!! Oops - sorry for yelling, but they are pretty great! Sarah xxx

  2. Oh boy, those are my kind of shoes (yellow ones). I just love them! Would they be able to be found on line?
    Great looking couple you found too. I love her boots. I've never even tried a pair of cowboy boots on before. Can't believe I said that!

    1. I'm pretty sure they are from the brand Fly London so you could probably find them on their website as they are from this season. I love cowboy boots, but my feet don't!

  3. Thanks for the coverage of this colourful, fun event! Your photos have been wonderful. Great boots. And I agree about the yellow shoes, twisty appeal.

  4. I love the embroidered cowboy boots and the chap with the waxed moustache's kaftan. What is it with festivals and waxed 'tashes? the one's I go to are heaving with them (cool to look at but yuk, couldn't snog one!) xxx

  5. Ooh, great boots and love the yellow shoes. Fly shoes are a bit narrow for me, but I'll take a look, I feel the desire for new sandals since it's actually been SUNNY in the UK today! xxx

  6. Focusing on boots and shoes is always a good thing. Your choices are stellar, as usual. Your coverage of Sunfest is worthy of coverage in your local paper!!!
