steppin out to the market [navy & pink]

Yesterday we hit up the Halifax Seaport Farmer's Market. I absolutely love strolling the aisles and picking out pretty handmade things and delicious ingredients to bring home. I always end up spending more than I intended to, which is why we don't go every weekend. This time we brought home gerbera daisies, goat cheese, sausage buns, a mini meat pie and dog treats. Goodies aside, we had fun exploring all the different vendors and artisan's booths. We tried some Canadian tea.

I had mango-maple and ended up drinking the rest of D's masala chai. He's not really a tea person...

We stumbled across these beautiful ash wood cutting boards and serving planks. I think they're absolutely stunning.

I had a nice little catch-up chat with my former manager and then headed off to pick up this meal for only $6 from Amir's Indian Food. I love coming here. Me & mom had his samosas way back in the summer.

And later that night we used our buns to make these.

It was a lovely start to a lazy Saturday. And to link up with Harpers Happenings, here's what I wore on our adventure:

There's a little story behind this outfit. I saw this gorgeous top at Pseudio that had white, navy & pink stripes of different widths. I thought it was such a fun combination, but it was not in my size. Thinking I could recreate the same feeling with something I already had, I threw on a salmon tank and my well-loved, can't-live-without-it navy cardigan. I think it turned out alright. Comfy enough for lounging and passable for public.

I'm working on my poses, guys. My photographer is giving me some direction... "Do something with your hands."

White tank: mens, Wal-mart
Leggings: kids, Wal-mart
Salmon tank: H&M
Cardigan: Old Navy
Boots: Hush Puppies
Necklace: two combined, cant remember...

  1. Hope you enjoyed that tea!! We used to have a Christmas-y tea from that company when we lived together. Remember?
