my splendid summer {part 3}...


One of my go-to things to do on the weekend is to visit the Hollywood Farmer's Market on Sunday mornings. It's my favorite market in Los Angeles not only because of the mix of fresh food and flowers vendors, but the variety of local and ethnic food stands, too. I love coming to shop for my weekly groceries and then having a street-food style lunch {I like to get a little of each from a few different places}.

My new favorite vendor at the market is the floral stand by Silver Lake Farms. I like to call them "not your grocery store flowers" because they have the most amazing blooms here that you'd never find at your local supermarket...like giant dahlias and wildflowers that looked plucked from the French countryside. For visiting the Farmer's Market, I layered a denim jacket {I'm finally starting to feel like they're back!} over a light cotton dress and topped it all with a few vintage accessories for a little extra sumthin'. And, then when I got home, this is what I did with the flowers... — Joy
