8 Fresh Looks to Wear to a Farmers Market

8 Looks To Wear To A Farmers Market!

Since moving to the West Coast nearly 11 years ago, I have fully emerged myself in the California lifestyle, from yoga and juicing to avocados and summer shows at the Hollywood Bowl. But one of my favorite things about living here is the abundance of locally grown organic food available at the neighborhood farmers markets. I love the perfectly ripe peaches, plums, grapes, and strawberries; the homemade breads, jams, and honey; the kettle corn booth; the organic apples; and most of all, I adore the fresh flowers that I can buy for just $2 a bunch. I love the fact that it is supporting small businesses, local farms, and that everything is freshly picked and ready for the table. It just feels right. I love the energy, the people, and the atmosphere. It’s my daughter London and I’s Thursday afternoon getaway. I bring $20 — we share a tamale and walk around buying a bit of our favorite fruits and flowers.

Farmers markets aren’t just exclusive to California, though;  they seem to be popping up just about anywhere and everywhere these days. Much like a flea market, you can go and make a day of it … or at least a good, long morning. When it comes to farmers market style, I like to wear mumus and dresses. There is a very bohemian flare to the scene; it’s a bit hippy-chic, if you will. It is about comfort and effortless style, like you just threw something on and left the house. Because it’s outside, I almost always wear a hat. And of course you will need a great bag to fill with nourishing foods and fun finds.

Now allow me to show you 8 of my favorite looks to wear to a farmers market:

Floral Kimonos 1 of 8
Step up your basic boyfriend jeans and grey T-shirt with a flowy pop of color, courtesy of a beautiful floral kimono. It's easy, breezy, and perfect for your run to the market for fresh flowers.

Flower Child Palazzo Pants 2 of 8
This ensemble is so comfy, it could double as your jammies. Loose palazzo pants with a graphic tee feels effortless, and adding a wedge for height and a crown of roses makes the look extra-special.

Purchase these pants from Urban Outfitters, $49

Denim Shirts with Denim Skirts 3 of 8
Denim on denim is a huge trend right now, otherwise known as the Canadian tuxedo. Personally, I like to pair two different shades of denim together, like I did here with a black denim skirt and a lighter shade of blue on top. It's crisp and simple. Wear some neutral flats and a straw hat to protect your face from the sun, and grab your tote bag to fill up with fruits and veggies.

Bicycle-Friendly Boyfriend Shorts 4 of 8
It's always a good idea to pair a bright shade, like this coral blouse, with a neutral hue, like these khaki-green boyfriend shorts. The shorts are just the perfect length for a bike ride to the farmers market.

Purchase a pair of similar shorts from Gap, $31.96
Purchase a similar shirt from Madewell, $79.50

Overalls 5 of 8
Looks like overalls are here to stay for a while. For summer they're getting lighter and looser and oh-so-comfy, like this pair here. Add a graphic T-shirt underneath, and wrap a bright, vintage scarf around your head to keep your hair out of your face.

Purchase these overalls from Mono B, $59
Purchase this T-shirt from Urban Outfitters, $9.99
Purchase these shoes from Urban Outfitters, $39
Head scarf is vintage
Bohemian Blouses and Bell Bottoms 6 of 8
A bohemian blouse is always right in style when it comes to the farmers market scene. Loosely tuck it into a pair of stretchy bell-bottom jeans for a long-legged look. Wear a pair of clogs or wedges for height and comfort while walking.

Purchase a similar shirt from Lucky, $34.99
Purchase these jeans from AE, $39.99
Purchase these shoes from Lulu's, $115
Day Dresses 7 of 8
A soft white day dress is the most obvious thing a gal could wear to the farmers market or flea market. It's easy to pull over your head, it's cool for hot days, and it's so feminine. I wore a beaded American flag headband just to jazz it up a bit and munched on some tomatoes for good measure.

Purchase a similar dress from Nordstrom, $170
Purchase this headband from Urban Outfitters, $18
Purchase a pair of similar sunglasses from Quay, $45
Purchase these shoes from Urban Outfitters, $39
Baseball Tees and Maxi Skirts 8 of 8
Try wearing a cool baseball T-shirt knotted up with a long bold maxi skirt in a fun, colorful print. It's another easy look with a lot of impact that's completely comfortable! Add a pair of gold dangly earrings to show off with your top knot.

Purchase this baseball tee from Salt and Pepper Tees, $35
Purchase this skirt from Forever 21, $24.80
Purchase a pair of similar sunglasses from Quay, $45
