Off to the Open Market


Wow, the weather in Boston is weird right now. Muggy and rainy one minute, then chilly enough that we gave up on stoop beer last night for a heated bar. This outfit is perfect for bizarre weather -- throw the jacket on if it starts to drizzle, then bare your shoulders in those rare moments of sun. Billowy tops like these can be hard to pull off without looking like you've got a spare tire, and sometimes Patagonia's cuts are a bit more "mature" than I prefer. But the two together are ideal for a day browsing crafts and veggies at the South End Open Market. Plus, those great wide leg jeans also happen to be great high waisted jeans as well (the lovely girl at GomiNYC tells me they look good on EVERYone, except of course me, who needed a smaller size.) Ooh, and I almost forgot! The bag is reversible! I clearly need to own everything here.

Patagonia Hempshire Jacket $95, Top Shop Fairtrade Print Bandeau $50 (yes, they deliver to the states), Del Forte Willow Trouser $190, Melissa Campanas Sapatilha Gold $60, Kim White Reversible Vintage Handbag $175.

p.s. Gold shoes are still in.
