Yesterday was a sunny, beautiful day for fun. Many Howard students and others alike made their way to the yard for an exciting event, a Yard Carnival as part of the 2012 Springfest celebration. Complete with men on stilts, a fire eater and a dunking tank, I'm sure everyone who attended enjoyed themselves! After class, I ran back to my room for my camera as I saw a handful of people decked out in cute gear! Camera in one hand and cotton candy in the other, I walked around scoping out the fabulous fashions.
These lovely ladies, looking comfortable and chic were walking around the yard enjoying the festivites. Starting on the left, this girl wore a tan, polka dot dress that had delicate lace details at the neckline which fashionably accentuated her lace tights. Finishing off the outfit with a pair of simple, black combat boots and 'Ray Ban' Wayfarer sunglasses, she looked great!
In the middle, this girl, looking classy chic, wore a pair of dark wash skinny jeans complete with a sheer black embroidered shirt. Her bib necklace and cheetah print oxfords added personality to her outfit and added a cute flair to a classic look.
Last but not least, on the right, this lady paired a flowy, paisley print dress with a pair of tan riding boots. Her large gold earrings stood out bringing her outfit to the next level with a classy twist!
Lovely in stripes, Alex rocked a pair of ocean blue trouser-cut pants with a simple striped shirt and white blazer. Her patterned head scarf, jeweled necklace and pink bag were small, trendy additions that contributed to her overall outfit. Always stylish, she finished off her look with a pair of tan flats.
This gentlemen wore a classic polo style shirt that had an interesting Hawaiian feel to it! The flowers and nautical flags that covered the shirt made me think of summer time fun. For a nice polished look, he completed his outfit with lightly colored khaki pants and tan boat shoes.
Wearing lovely, spring colors these two ladies wore two shades of pink while enjoying the fun on the yard!
On the left, this beautiful girl wore a bright pink blazer with a vintage, patterned button-down shirt underneath. Her gray ripped skinny jeans and orange shoulder bag made the outfit pop! Also as a finishing touch, her braided headband and small hoops completed her overall hippy, chic look!
Now moving to the right, sporting a pair of bright pink skinny jeans and striped oxford button down, this lady went for a preppy yet trendy look! Her turquoise and yellow backpack stood out to me as she incorporated many bright spring colors into her outfit. Lastly her 'Sperry' boat shoes and white watch wrapped up her cute look!
Wearing a typical summer outfit, this young man was seen walking around the yard with a trendy straw hat and denim button down. Adding a more classic feel to the outfit he threw on a bow-tie and khaki shorts which gave his outfit an overall summer-like, preppy feel, finished off with some 'Sperry' boat shoes.
The most adorable thing I saw all day, this woman was walking around the yard with her tiny friend! She looked clean and fresh in a pair of white jeans and knitted tank-top. Her grayish shoulder bag and tiny pendant necklaces acted as simple additions to her outfit but her little husky friend was the ultimate accessory!
Two of my favorite outfits of the day, these ladies were waiting in line at the photo booth when I approached them for a quick flick.
On the left, this pretty girl had on a pale blue sun dress that she dressed up with over-sized sunglasses and several skinny necklaces. Her black studded flats were cute and looked comfortable yet stylish in addition to her unique ring that immediately caught my attention! Also a great piece, her large cream colored tote stood out but brought the outfit together.
Moving on to the lovely lady on the right, she wore navy blue high-waisted pants with a purple strapless top. Her tribal print vest and coral colored flats made the outfit pop as she completed her look with a simple black clutch!
Dapper and handsome, this gentlemen wore a pair of tan straight leg pants paired with a white striped button down shirt and bow-tie. His bright jacket looked great against the neutral colors in his outfit as he also incorporated a patterned cap which dressed down his look. Completing his classic look, he wore a pair of tan penny loafers on his feet.
During all the festivities, everyone was surprised when Spider-man and his enemy Venom zoomed across the yard unexpectedly! So shout out to them for giving us a good laugh!
Stay Pretty Everyone!
