OOTD - Saturday Farmer's Market


There's a saying that goes 'A Sunday well spent brings a week of content.'  As much as I love a good proverb, I'm going to have to disagree with this one - to me, a happy and productive Saturday definitely dictates the direction that the following week will take.  I love a busy Saturday, and lately in the warmer months I always start it off with a visit to the St. Lawrence Market - a farmer's market here in Toronto that's right in my neighbourhood.  Comfort is key when browsing local produce and goods, making a lacy white shift dress an obvious choice for the occasion. A denim jacket is perfect to pair with a flowy white dress to keep it from looking like a night gown, and a tote is a must when visiting any farmer's market to avoid the icy stares of merchants when asking for a bag.  Lazy Sunday - no way!  I'm starting a movement towards proactive Saturdays.  Hashtag, anyone? #productivesaturdays





Dress - Forever 21, Denim jacket - Zara, Tote - Madewell
Hat - American Apparel



This is about the time last year that I purchased my Madewell Transport Tote, and I've gotten so much use out of it since.  I find it to be the perfect Spring and Summer bag, since it carries all of your essentials and then some while still being light on the shoulder.  I actually will use this tote as an overnight bag for cottage weekends and out-of-town trips.


Having Fun!
Hip hip hurray for a productive Saturday - hey, I think I've found my new favourite saying!  What does your Saturday attire look like in your area?

    1. Yes! I've been having poor luck at Forever lately too - this dress with the result of many orders + returns. I'm happy I found it though, I love a white dress for summer!

    1. Thanks Naghmeh!
      Definitely head to the St. Lawrence Market on a Saturday! Might I suggest eating at Buster's Sea Cove - so good!
      And yes, my hair is so light now - especially if I'm wearing a hat to cover the heavy root! I'm getting used to it, but glad that you like it!
