market to market

This weekend has been all about regrouping, relaxation, and, most importantly, good food! B and I checked out the Arlington Farmers' Market on Saturday. I wish I had taken more pictures. It's such a feast for the eye. We're quickly becoming Arlington converts. I loved the Dupont Farmers' Market, but it could be so terribly crowded and parking wasn't exactly an option. The Arlington one seemed just as abundant and was a much more relaxing experience.

There was a mushroom vendor with a selection that was out of this world! We got a basket of mixed varieties and they were delicious!

I'm in love with these elegant drapey flowers - anyone know what they are?

I got a half-smoke, which was incredible. It had sauteed onions, pesto, and mustard on it, all of which came from vendors at the market.

How do you like the Heathers-style croquet outfit? It's scary how that movie seems to be an endless source of  style inspiration to me. Thankfully, no red scrunchies yet.

I've had this pocket watch forever. I used to wear it constantly in middle school and junior high. I was thrilled to rediscover it the other day.

I agree that the cardigan looks both Chanel-esque and Heathers-esque. I love the leather shorts and I definitely want to know about those flowers because they are gorgeous!

Your pocket watch is so amazing! And the cream cardigan with black lace and shorts is exactly the kind of look suited for these almost end of summer days.

I love pictures of food as much as i love pictures of fashion. Those two are quite high on my list : ). Love the casual look. I really like the shorts and cardigan a lot...i also like the fact you have lace peeking through which gives it a more edgier look

I've never seen Heathers. I feel like I'm missing something. But I love farmer markets. It's one of those thing I enjoy since I'm from a state big in agriculture. I found some great veggies and got cotton candy. It wasn't very healthy but it was yummy.

Hannah said...

I'm so jealous of people who know about food and cooking... I used my stovetop for the second time in eight months yesterday though and I think it might have been partly inspired by you!

Daphne said...

Great photos. Love the outfit. Leather shorts are so hip with that cardigan and the watch/necklace.

I love this cardigan. I have a similar one in navy blue.

Julia said...

Heathers was my manifesto when I was 16. I should be embarrassed by that, shouldn't I? But if it led to you looking so awesome, I must still contend that it has some solid power. Solid. Legs for days, too, my lady.
