Summertime Farmers Market Outing

4 Commentson Summertime Farmers Market Outing

Last week I finally went out of the house. Patrick and I have been trying to focus more on zero waste and buying locally, which means farmers markets are a great option. Additionally, they are good for getting some of our groceries amid the pandemic as they are outside. I took this small outing as an opportunity to wear my birthday present from Patrick, a beautiful sand cast squash blossom.

Typically I prefer to shoot my outing outfits either at or nearby our destination, however I chose for us to shoot at home, because it would limit my time out in public. However I wanted to be honest in showcasing my full outfit, so I chose to wear my mask for these photos, because masks don’t have to be dull!

I’ve made some masks for myself, Patrick, and friends, and am trying to get creative. I’ve made a handful with fringe, including shorter fringe, and was inspired by Orville Peck‘s iconic fringed eye masks.

Now a perfect time to find out if you have a farmers market near you! If you’re like Patrick and I who are only doing grocery outings about once a month, farmers markets are especially great for filling in the gaps in the middle if you run out of fresh fruits and vegetables. But please remember to stay safe! Wear your mask, maintain a six foot distance from others, and remember to wash your hands! And if you support Black Lives Matter, you really better wear a mask, because the Black population is being disproportionally affected by COVID-19.
