Summer Faves: Saturday Market Fashions for keeping your cool!

Got my cute straw bag from World Market and added my own yellow scarf tied to the handles. It’s perfect for carrying my peaches, tomatoes, blueberries, and flowers.

Despite what the back-to-school calendar says we are in fact in the middle of summer, not at the end of it. And, I don’t know about you, but the temperatures where I am back this up…..all the way into the 90’s!

Every year I have a few favorite summertime traditions that I look forward to and I thought that over the next few days I would share four of my summer faves with you in case you were still looking for something to squeeze into the last part of summer, or the last few days, if your summer vacation is dictated by the school board. Either way, there are still plenty of warm, (hot!), summer days, and nights, left on the calendar and a little planning will help ensure that you don’t miss out on the fun. Just remember to keep your cool! Cheers to summer! ~ Sunny

One of my absolute favorite things I look forward to about summer is the…. opening of the Saturday Farmer’s Market and all the fresh local fruit and vegetables that is available. Here are my tips for making it a fun and successful outing.


Notice my cute straw hat for shading my face from the summer sun. You can just see my pretty fan. A must have for keeping cool in the heat. I got it from World Market. They have a nice assortment to choose from.

*Most important thing I have found is that you need to get there early! Not only to beat the heat, but also to have the choice of the best produce. The early bird gets the best tomatoes and peaches!

*Other tips include wearing a hat, sunglasses and comfortable shoes. Other things I make sure to have with me are a pretty fan and a nice basket of some type that doubles as my purse and a way to carry all of my goodies. I also make sure to wear a comfortable and cool summer dress. And, a pretty one, too!

*Always remember to wear your sunscreen!


Here’s the whole look: I love a cute summer dress and I have loved this one with the pin-stripes that I got from Target! It’s from their “Who-What-Wear” line and I love the detail of the hemline and the belt that ties in a cute bow. It keeps me cool, and stylish, too, and you can’t beat that Target price! Just goes to show you that style is not about price, or age! And, you can dress up this t-shirt dress or you can dress it down as I did here paired with my white slip-ons for a visit to the Saturday Farmer’s Market. I’ll show you how cute it is dressed up in another post.

I hope you are inspired to get up early one Saturday morning this summer and make a trip to your local Farmer’s Market. Just a little planning ahead will ensure you stay as cool as a cucumber!

Stay tuned for my next post in my “Sunny Summer” series for more of my favorite summertime fun!

Cheers to summer! ~ Sunny
