I've officially been in the city of Long Beach for three weeks! Ok, ALMOST 3 weeks, so this outfit is definitely inspired by my new cirty. There are several farmer's markets here in Long Beach (there are three every week!) and happily enough Long Beach is a very bike friendly city! There are bike lanes everywhere and you often see bikers zipping around town. Which is good news for me as I dislike driving (unless it's scenic drives along the Pacific Coast Highway) and prefer to get around town on foot or via a bicycle.

The other thing I learned about Long Beach is that it has a "Bag Ban" meaning you can't get plastic bags anywhere! So I've made sure to have my trust grocery tote or basket whenever I go to the market. Loving the bag ban law by the way...way to be eco friendly LBC!

The Shop List
1. Hat, The Outnet
2. Top, Monki.com
3. Pants, Forever New
4. Boots, Isabel Marant
5. Bike, Aha Life
6. Basket, Williams & Sonoma
7. Scarf, Gucci

Fresh flowers, a loaf of bread (usually rosemary or olive), and various fruits and veggies are my farmer's market staples. What's in your farmer's market bag?


  1. it's not quite farmer's market season over in Denver, but when it is I am all about some home grown corn and tomatoes!

    brittany come say hello MOCCASIN RUN

    1. Corn is another great staple for summer/fall! Especially with a bit of paprika sprinkled on it.

  2. love the style of the mood board. i had no idea long beach was filled with bike lanes! and yes, aren't farmers markets the best? I always get the best sourdough bread, eggs and veggies there. enjoy the rest of your weekend~~


    1. I love farmer's markets! :) I haven't found THE one yet in Long Beach, but I'm hoping the one on Tuesdays by the beach is a good one!

  3. Yet, again... another reason to move to CA!! Ahh, can't wait for warm summers to trug along a basket full of veggie goodies from the Chicago farmers' markets. Soon, I hope :)
