Sunday means a trip to the farmer’s market, and no trip is complete without these fave farmer’s market essentials (clockwise from top left):
- Clare V. Matilda Canvas Tote ($198)- Brooklyn Kombucha Growler Bottle Sling ($12.50)- J. Crew Patterned Summer Straw Hat ($39.50)- Steven Alan Classic Shirtdress - Exclusive for Goop ($235)
With my kombucha for detoxing, a hat to keep those nasty UV rays off my porcelain skin, and a caj shirt dress to help me look farm chic, I’m ready to load up my tote with the earth’s (organic) bounty.
