Weekend Wardrobe: Sunday Stripes

Cardigan: H&M/Similar; Dress: Anthropologie; Belt: Vintage/Similar; Shoes: Swedish Hasbeens.

Sunday morning I met my friend, Zack, for a delicious breakfast in Ballard. It was a cloudy morning, but the sun started to peek out later in the day. After our awesome breakfast and some good catching up, Zack headed off to a bike race and I headed off to the farmers market. My dad has a habit of buying more fruit than you could possibly eat in a week and I'm starting to suspect that I might be turning into him in that regard. Not only do I have 5 pounds of raspberries in the fridge from my raspberry picking adventure on Friday, but I also bought 2 pounds of apricots and 2 pounds of cherries at the farmers market!

Fortunately, I had planned to spend Sunday working on processing the raspberries, so after my morning of breakfast and the farmers market, I spent the afternoon making fruit leather and raspberry brownies. I should be posting the raspberry brownie recipe in the next couple of days, and the other recipe should follow in the next week or so.

I'm really thrilled that all the summer fruit is rolling in right now and can't wait for the weeks to come making apricot preserves and canning peaches!

Til next time!

  2. I love your sweater and belt. They both add a nice pop of colour to the outfit. Which, it's a great outfit!

    The raspberry brownies sound great! Raspberries are my favorite fruit! :D

  3. I love that dress! So much that I clicked on the link to see details. Instead, I got this ridiculous error message: "Due to the Charter of the French Language, our website will be unavailable to the province of Quebec after 10/12/2012." *eye roll*

    1. Hi Marlen!
      1. Thank you so much!
      2. The fruit isn't always cheaper at the farmers market, but it's definitely comparable to the grocery store and usually much tastier, plus you support local farmers! Generally if you do u-pick out on a farm it's much cheaper though, and if you get things in bulk it's usually cheaper too. This weekend I'm hoping to pick up 20-30lbs of apricots for like 30 bucks for making preserves!
      3. Yes! It's a fun neighborhood for sure. The Sunday market can be really great, especially on a nice fall day, but it's definitely more of a flea market than a farmers market (which is great in its own right!). If you're looking for an awesome farmers market I would check out the Ballard Sunday market. It's amazing.

      Sorry for the novel of a response!

  8. Sounds like a fun Sunday! That dress is absolutely perfect by the way. I love the unique striped pattern, and it looks amazing paired with pops of blue and neutral sandals. Can't think of a better frock to wear to a Sunday farmers market.
