One of our favorite ways to spend our Saturday mornings is at our local Farmer’s Market. There are tons of vendors selling everything from locally raised meats and homegrown fruits and veggies to baked goods and handmade items, and there’s always live music too. It’s a fun place to hang out, and we always come home armed with goodies.
Paul and I thought it would be fun to take some outfit pictures when we visited last weekend. This is the kind of super casual outfit that I typically wear working from home in the summertime, but it’s also the perfect Saturday outfit for a Farmer’s Market run or whatever errands you might have going on. I know it’s nothing spectacular, but I love the combination of grey and white in the summertime, and the pink sandals really pop.
I picked up this grey linen tank at Old Navy for $9. I’ve been wearing it with these white shorts or my distressed crop white jeans about every other day. It’s thin and comfortable in the heat, but it’s not see-through so you don’t need another layer. I have been told the other colors are more see-through, which is the only reason I haven’t snatched it up in a few other colors.
I don’t often mix colors, but I decided to step outside of my comfort zone just a bit and wear this turquoise layered necklace. Turquoise and pink go together, right? I also wore a bright pink lipstick rather than my typical nude.
I carried my big striped tote because I like to be able to throw my purchases in my bag, and this one is coated cotton so it wipes off if I get any dirt on it or anything.
I did the front tuck because this top has a shirttail hem, and it’s too long to leave untucked with shorts (although it works well untucked with crop jeans because they are longer and give it more balance.) In these pictures, my shirt is tucked in a bit too far for my taste. I swear, when I did the front-tuck at home, it was bloused out a bit more. It seems short in these pictures, and it’s bugging me a bit. I think a belt would have made this outfit look more put together, but I didn’t wear one because I didn’t realize it would show.
Here’s a side view. You can see here that a belt would have been visible, and might have made the outfit look more finished. I left the shirt untucked in the back because that’s the trendy thing to do (LOL) and tucking it in all around wouldn’t really look good on me. It is not my favorite look, but for a casual outfit at home or running to the Farmer’s Market, it works.
These shield sunglasses are super old and probably outdated, but I’ve always liked them and I happened to grab them as I walked out the door.
Yes, we really did some shopping! In addition to the veggies you can see in my plastic bag, I had some delicious gluten-free baked goods in my tote. YUM.
I’ve had some questions about how I style my hair this way. I’ve been using my daughter’s NuMe Octowand (it is currently $99 – the price is reflected at checkout.) I use one of the medium sized straight barrels and curl my hair in two layers (I pin up the top layer while I curl the bottom.) The key is to curl your hair away from your face. My hairdresser showed me how. It’s a bit of a process so I don’t do it every day, but I really like the results. I feel like I look younger with my hair curled.
Be sure to visit Cyndi and see the summer outfit she’s styling today, and come back tomorrow for my next summer outfit!
