one of my most very favorite things about summer is the local community farmer's market. one where local producers remember you from week to week and there's no shortage of lemonade being sold in mason jars. it has also been one of the things I've missed most about living on this exotic, but mostly barren, caribbean island. and so I've been trying to find ways to infuse the essence of farmer's market saturdays into my day to day. I'll buy the more expensive french carrots just because they still have the dirt on them and I own my own little mason jar for afternoon lemonade hankerings and I've been dressing like I'm constantly on my way to the market. not that there is any one farmer's market uniform, but there's something about sundresses and overalls that just carry heart notes of farmer's market, don't you think? as does everything else on this list. for some reason, I just feel like overalls paired with wellies means you should have garden dirt all over you and bushels of cherries in your arms.
now, about penhaligon's iris prima perfume. before we left for the island, mitch bought me the massage of my life and the girl used this bergamot scented oil that smelled so good I was hesitant to shower it off come next morning. don't worry, I did, but I've been looking for the most perfect bergamot perfume since and this one is a total winner. definitely give it a spritz the next time you're at the counter!
and on a total side note, I'm having the hardest time picking out a pair of wellies. I want the classic shape and a nice neutral color that will go with anything. any suggestions??
have a great day you guys!
