Birthday Outing- Oak Glen Swing Dance

A little before my birthday my friends Beth (of V is for Vintage Blog) and her husband, Chris, and my husband and I went up to Oak Glen, California, to a fun little WWII themed swing dance at Riley’s Farm.  I had never been to Riley’s Farm before, and it was so cute!  We’ll definately be back!

I don’t have any actual photos of swing dancing, but here’s some fun little photos of us wandering around the grounds before the dance.  In case you can’t tell, autumn stuff and pumpkins are some of my favorite things.

I won an apple pie as a prize for best girl’s costume!!  How exciting!!  That would have been, like, a million rations!

I wore all vintage to this event- no me-made for once!  The fun plaid suit I bought last year from an online vintage seller, with an overcoat found at a flea market, a red purse (not 40s, but vintage) found at a thrift store, and a hat bought from a local vintage store.  Beth wore one of my favorite vintage dresses she owns, and our husbands both wore vintage suits.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

    Congratulations! Love your outfit, and what a wonderful way to celebrate your birthday! I seldom either manages to take pictures during swing dance socials, and when I do they don’t turn out good. Taking photos of people dancing is an artform in itself, I think. One I enjoy in others but is too busy having fun on the dancefloor to properly cultivate in myself =)
