Organic Results

I wore this outfit the other week to head up to Stamford, CT and pick out some local organic food at Mike's Organic Delivery. I know a little black dress with heels and a big hat isn't really what most people would reach for on a day of basically shopping and errands. I also stopped in J.Crew and left with this belt (it was on clearance!). Then I had a close call with the hat - it blew off my head, into the street and nearly was run over by a firetruck. Has anyone invented a way to keep hats on your head? If not, I guess I need to!

Since I wasn't in Mike's Organic Delivery radius, I had to visit their warehouse in person, which also led to addition of flowers to my cart, which are not listed anywhere on their website that I can find. I am not a fashion blogger if I don't carry flowers unnecessarily.

All you are seeing here are the flowers and the cute little Mike's Organic shopping bag, but I've got a super yummy pasta recipe featuring all the amazing veggies I picked out (save for the carrots) on Cooking in Cashmere today!

If you are a Connecticut resident in Fairfield County, you can sign up for a CSA or on demand deliveries from Mike's Organic. All the produce I selected was delicious and fresh - and of course local!

  1. I think this outfit was a glorious choice for grocery shopping, particularly since you went somewhere that had cute bags and flowers - it makes it look like you planned everything, but it's even better knowing that everything really did come together somewhat... organically, ha ha. (That was a terrible pun. I apologise.) I am in love with your dress, although I genuinely find off the shoulder styles impractical. So much so, I think, that I will have to pay it a visit on the Loft website...

  2. Oh I loooove this outfit! Your dress is so pretty and you accessorized it perfectly. It looks comfortable and pretty glamorous all at the same time! That hat style looks great on you and bonus points for the extra sun protection.

  11. Your little black dress is beautiful, as is your hat. I'm glad you were able to save it! :)

    Sometimes it's nice to dress up a little, even if you're just running errands. If I didn't dress up to run errands I'd never be wearing half my wardrobe, haha! :)

    Hope that you are having a good week! I have the week off so I've got lots of relaxing things planned! :)
