Style on a Budget: The Farmers Market Girl

Image

 

Sundays are just a glorious day to rest and enjoy the beautiful city of Los Angeles with my fiance after church. This past 90 degree  “autumn” Sunday, we decided to wander around and explore the farmers market in Larchmont Village. Since the weather was so beautiful, I decided to get the most out of my adventure shorts and summer sun glasses while I still had the chance, while still adding some fall elements of fashion to the look.

As we slowly transition into fall here in LA, it is so much fun to bring out the layered wraps, cool, grey, charcoal, and black colors and just have fun! 

Get The Look:
-Sunglasses: $9, Nine West at Marshalls (Fun shades are a must have in the bright sun of outdoor farmers markets.)
Grey wrap: $8, Target (Fall is all about layering. Adding a wrap to a simple attire can add the autumn element.)

Simple black tank: $8, Walmart
-Classic shorts with simple pockets: $10, Forever 21
-Red tote: $10, Princess Vera Wang at Kohl’s
-Black sneaker heal wedges: $10, hole in the wall store in the Burbank Town Center (These are a style staple that every girl needs. You can find these wedged sneakers everywhere now and they are not only cute, but super comfortable! I get my height but am still able to run around town all day.)
-Classic pearl earrings: Throw your favorite simple stud earrings on…they go with everything!
-Layered bracelets: All of my bracelets are meaningful and have been given to me from people that I love. The brown beaded bracelet is something my room mate brought me back from her trip in Hawaii; the black bracelet with the crushed crystals in the center is from my fiance; I have a black bracelet with a cross on it from my mama; and the large black band bracelet is something I got at a conference that says “Love is Greater than Fear.” Fall is all about layering! Not only can you layer with wraps and sweaters, but layer your favorite bracelets for a fun, unique look!

This farmers market was so full of beauty, color, and life! My taste buds were enchanted as I strolled through the market with my fiance sampling the various fresh foods and juices (one of our favorites was a homemade, organic, 100% pomegranate juice). There is something so incredible about seeing real food, fresh fruit, and just taking delight in what God has given us here on this earth. We had a blast tasting all of the free samples and just remembering and enjoying the goodness that’s all around us.

“Every good gift and every perfect (free, large, full) gift is from above; it comes down from the Father of all [that gives] light, in Whom there can be no variation or shadow cast by His turning.”
-James 1:17

I can’t tell you just what it is, but there is nothing quite as magical as fresh, blooming flowers coming straight from a farmers market…wrapped in the brown paper…just waiting to soak into a vase in your home. My fiance listened to me go on and on about how much I adore fresh flowers in the home…it’s simply wonderful.

“And why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.”
-Matthew 6:28-29

This week, remember to enjoy life. Seek out God’s beauty. Stop and smell the flowers…with your style on a budget!

  1. I would love to be there and enjoy all of God’s bounty and beauty. What a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon. Hope Nathan bought you some of those gorgeous flowers. I love the gerber daisy. The colors are outstanding and I think they last for a long time. I had some in my yard this summer and really enjoyed them.
