Hobbit Vests, Fedoras and Commentary

A couple of weeknds ago Andrew and I went to a local Fall Festival and we had the best time! There was a great vibe and everyone was pumped on being out in the color in our town. Even the tourists were bearable, which is a big deal. Somehow we always seem to get the most obnoxious tourists, probably everyone everywhere feels that way but we get all of them. Promise.

Anyways, I digress. For whatever reason Fall brings with it my need to wear my hobbit vest and my fedora. Dunno why, but it does. It also brings the need to check out abandoned buildings on our main street in broad daylight. Because, that's not illegal or anything.

Andrew is really great at taking photos. Just saying. So we check out this building and kind of fall in love with it. Apparently it was an old diner, we want to open up a diner now, just because of this building. Thanks, Fall.

Once we were finished exploring and gawking over the dumbwaiter we decided to do a little thrifting. As we were leaving Andrew wanted to get a shot of me outside of the building. As we walked out and he was about to get me to pose for the photo, two guys (obviously partners) walked by. So I'm awkwardly standing there (any of you that do outfit posts in public know what I mean) and this is their conversation:

Man 1: Oh, she's cute.
Man 2: Way retro, though.
Man 1: *pause* Yeeeaaahhh....

Andrew got my face as I was listening to this and a shot of them as they walked away. It may or may not have made my day.

I don't think I knew that hobbit vests and fedoras made you look retro, but I'm glad these dudes clued me in. It was kind of awesome!

Too funny! Those awkward moments when you're taking pictures in public are so worth it for stories like this. ;]

Such a cute outfit! I love taking pictures of abandon buildings, it's just so neat to think of what they were like in their hay-day.

I LOVE diners! Especially retro ones.

There was this adorable diner in front of the place we stay at when I got on vacation with my in-laws, but sadly it closed down before I could ever go there. I hear they had the best milkshakes ever. I always dream of buying it & moving down there to reopen it.
