This weekend is the art deco weekend in Napier. This was our second weekend going to the annual event and our first dressing up. (Well, me and the kids dressed up, Andrew was too cool for school.)

It is a really awesome and huge weekend, with literally hundreds of events. We just went for a few hours and soaked up the atmosphere and people watched. I was really tempted to take photos of people who had awesome costumes, especially the little old ladies with their fur coats and parasols on the arm of a dapper old gentleman… but I guess it felt a little obvious, so I didn’t.

I didn’t get many photos of the vintage cars and goings on as I hoped, as I was too busy pointing out stuff to the kids, but I did get a mother-load of my kids all dressed up. (So apologies as this is really going to turn into a kid style, art deco edition type post.)

We didn’t stay long, only a couple of hours… which was lucky because even the smallest dose of art deco can be very very tiring!

I plan to share ‘what I wore’ in my next Wardrobe Wednesday post.
