One of my favorite places to visit on the weekend is the Halifax Seaport Farmer’s Market. It is a great place to spend a couple hours on a Saturday morning, wandering through the stalls of local vendors filled with fresh meats, produce, baked goods, ethnic foods, crafted items, and so much more! It’s also a great way to support local talent and the local farming community. I absolutely love eating my way through the market and it has a great open environment with a variety of seating and live music.
On another note, if you work at a job that requires a strict dress code, the weekend is your time to put together a great outfit with no restrictions! Coming from the healthcare industry, and having worked in the finance industry, it is interesting to find creative ways to express your style while keeping it professional (maybe I’ll post about that later!). Lately, I’ve been obsessed with all kinds of hats. I love the way a floppy wool hat or leather baseball cap can change the look of a whole outfit. Here I’m wearing a hat I purchased from American Apparel, and my favorite fur vest from 525 America. The brown/neutral shades in the vest adds a balance to my otherwise all black outfit (with a minimal splash of gold). I know black can be tiring for some people, but I love it because it will always be a classic, plus it’s hard to stain from all the food I’m eating at the market 😉
