Leaf camouflaged

If you follow me on Instagram (kiwifashionblog) you would have seen me wearing this skort a few times. I love the fact it's a full skirt-shape with the convenience of being a skort to accommodation a klutz like myself. Right before these photos were taken, the man and I went to a local farmer's market and bought some really delicious locally grown/made treats (including a huge black and white cookie,a bag of loose granola and some giant blackberries).
Do you like to go to your local farmer's market? Although prices are often higher than the regular grocery stores, I always try to get a couple of things to support local small business owners. Eating organic healthy food while supporting your local farmers community is something I hope we all do :)
Stella & Dot Isla drop earrings (in aqua here, I LOVE them), Givenchy Antigona bag in small and Sam Edelman Ginger sandals (pink ones on sale here) and Lindberg sunnies.

A pressie I bought for my mum but I am borrowing them until I see her in a couple of months (hehehe)
Have a fantastic week. See you on my IG and/or the next post!

Aha, nice way of giving gifts! :) Just kidding.

Really nice skirt; most of all, it's great that the weather still allows us (yes, over here too) to dress light.

We don't have any farmers' markets over here - markets yes but I doubt the sellers have farms. I've only ever been to the one in LA, next to The Grove.

Love that striped skirt on you! I really like your grey tee too :)

Did you ever go to the jan powers farmers markets in Brisbane? They have them in the CBD every week, they used to be so close to the office I'd always shop there and get lunch there too, so many delicious food items!

Hey Girl! My summer was great but it's all back to school now. I've survived the first week haha!

I absolutely adore farmer's markets. The food is totally worth the extra money. As for your skirt, it's perfect! The cool colors go together so well. I don't blame you for wearing it frequently!
