Today I decided to dress causual to hit the grocery stores. I found out today that shopping for food in NYC is quite different from what I’m used to. Of course there are regular grocery stores (nowhere close to they size of a Publix or Harris Teeter, but similarly structured). Most people shop small, buying meat at a butcher, buying fruit at a fruit stand, etc. I went to a butcher for the first time today and I went to a fish market.
Not only is it way cheaper to buy your groceries this way, but you also support small business at the same time. It’s important not to wear a super luxe shoe just in case you drop ice on yourself at the fish market, or fruit etc.
Why a poodle skirt for food shopping? I’m not usually a jeans and t-shirt kind of person and I really like the freedom that comes with wearing a longer skirt on a breezy day. It’s super easy to toss on a skirt and pair of oxfords. If you want to try something new from jeans and a t-shirt, try a t-shirt and a skirt! It sounds simple, but switching it up by just that much might give your outfits a whole new boost!
