Downtown St. Petersburg Saturday Morning Market

Happy Monday, getting back into the swing of things of being back home.  This weekend was absolutely stunning in Florida.  I met my friend Karen and we couldn’t wait to get outside and enjoy the last weekend of the downtown St. Petersburg Saturday morning market before it moves to the Williams Park location.  The downtown market is beautiful because it’s right by the waterfront, so when it gets warm by midday, it’s easy to stroll down to the waterfront to let the Tampa Bay breeze cool you off.  Since I am now a Pinellas country resident I have really been trying to get out and see all that St. Pete has to offer! Linking up with Biana for her weekending update.

There are plenty of vendors and food options.  Downtown St. Petersburg Saturday Market

It was hard but we narrowed our choices down to empanadas.

Then we headed down to the water.

Can you tell how much I love playing around with my new lens?

We could have sat outside all day.

We headed on home since it was starting to get steamy out.

Then brainstormed lots of fabulous ideas for the next few weeks.

Saturday night Mark and I headed over to Kona Grill for dinner and met up with friends.  I brought my camera because I wanted to grab some pretty outdoor pictures.  Well the clouds were rolling in and we narrowly escaped getting soaked.  I breathed a sigh of relief since I was wearing my new white skinnies if you remember from this post.  Clearly I was meant to get rained on…..has this ever happened to anyone?  I was served water in a glass and the bottom of it literally broke as I picked it up and an entire glass of water dumped all over my pants.  What the?!?!?!  I mean I’m glad it wasn’t the red wine I was drinking but it was so crazy!  The apps were really good though at least!

Sunday was spent catching up.  Have you ever tried to fix something on your blog before and hours go by and you still haven’t solved the problem?  Yup that was me on Sunday.  Still haven’t gotten rid of the title on the top of my page and have no new blog posts to show for it.  Oh well.  Who needs sleep anyways?  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  I have lots of Greece recaps coming at you mid week!  Make sure to check back!  xoxoxo

    It’s nice that the market is right by the water to help cool off. I have so been there with trying to fix WordPress bugs. IT does get easier though.

    That market sounds amazing!!! My friend went to school near st Pete and she told me all about the amazingness! Speaking of amazing, love the back of that top and those empanadas, yum!

    The market looks wonderful but you know what I need a tutorial on that fabulous braid of yours – it looks amazing!!! I can’t wait to see what you’ve cooked up for the blog!!! Side note – shooting with a real camera is so much fun!!! Happy Monday love! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

  4. June 1, 2015 / 7:03 AM

    Looks like a great weekend to me! Love your braid! Xoxo

  5. June 1, 2015 / 8:05 AM

    Ahhhhh, this is why I wish I lived near water… So pretty! And there must be something in the air, because I spent hours on Tuesday trying to fix something with my blog, and then my iPhone, and didn’t manage to get one single post done for the week. Awesome. Why can’t blogs just behave?!

  6. June 1, 2015 / 8:07 AM

    That market looks like the perfect place for a weekend stroll, and LOVING the detail on the back of your dress… so pretty! And I’m so sorry your water glass broke and water dumped into your lap. That used to happen when I waited tables in college, and it’s due to a super hot glass that just came out of the dishwasher and a super cold drink going into it before it’s had time to cool off on it’s own. It causes the glass to break :-P

    Have a fabulous week gurlie <3

    Looks like a beautiful weekend! That app looks delicious!

  9. June 1, 2015 / 8:37 AM

    Looks like it was a great day and you guys took full advantage of the marketplace. Love that you stopped and did a little hula hooping too lol

  10. June 1, 2015 / 9:01 AM

    Model status up there. Look at you! I miss living and walking right by the water–so beautiful!

  11. June 1, 2015 / 9:02 AM

    You and your friend were the best looking and the best dressed people at the market for sure! :-) Beautiful pictures too. I got drenched on the way home from work on Saturday and was not wearing the right shoes. So I get the white jeans and rain thing. Story of my life with trying to figure out stuff on the blog too haha. I hope that you have a wonderful day today too lady!! :-)

  12. June 1, 2015 / 9:12 AM

    I absolutely love markets like this one! They are so fun and a great way to get immersed in the local community and culture. I’m obsessed with what you were wearing – I definitely can’t rock the crop top, but you look fabulous. Happy Monday!

  13. June 1, 2015 / 9:17 AM

    Great pics! Definitely feel your pain with trying to figure things out with no success! I’ve had photo issues lately and it’s driving me nuts.
    Happy Monday!

    I can TOTALLY relate to the blog thing. I have done that so many times. UGH. So frustrating.

    The rest of your weekend looks absolutely awesome, though.
    I’m going to be purchasing a new lens this month and I am seriously giddy about it! Yay!

    So jealous of the beautiful weekend you had! It was freezing cold and raining here in Chicago all weekend :(

    I can’t believe that your glass broke! Of course that happens when you’re wearing white pants.

    PS your photos look amazing! :)

    xo, Jen

  18. June 1, 2015 / 9:46 AM

    What a perfect weekend! Loving your outfit and braided hair – so summer chic :)

  19. June 1, 2015 / 9:47 AM

    That market looks like so much fun especially being right along the water! I’m terrified of wearing white pants because I’m a klutz and know I will get something on there even if I have them on for a little while!

  20. June 1, 2015 / 10:21 AM

    Great pictures! I love summer farmer’s markets!

  21. June 1, 2015 / 10:21 AM

    Your weekend looks amazing! The hula-hoop picture is so fun. Happy Monday!

  22. June 1, 2015 / 10:27 AM

    what an awesome weekend! I love outdoor markets. and your weather looks stunning. can’t wait to see all you have in store!

  23. June 1, 2015 / 11:04 AM

    Ugh that is so me, I try and fix one thing on my blog and spend hours on it with nothing to show for it. So frustrating! But your new lens takes some beautiful pictures!

  24. June 1, 2015 / 11:31 AM

    This looks like a perfect weekend! Honestly having good weather can make all the difference :) yay! That food looks delish!

  25. June 1, 2015 / 11:34 AM

    How does the bottom of a glass fall out? That’s like Final Destination stuff… for your pants!
    I wore white pants this weekend & was paranoid the whole day of touching anything

  26. June 1, 2015 / 11:51 AM

    That market looks awesome! And looks like you had some great weather this weekend! I’m jealous that you live by the water! Can’t wait to see your upcoming posts!

  27. June 1, 2015 / 11:52 AM

    Yes. I have spent HOURS on something and still nothing to show for it. And then I do it again, and again, and again. #insanity
    What a fun little market! Love farmer’s markets. That pic of you hula hooping; love.

  28. June 1, 2015 / 12:25 PM

    Love going to the farmer’s market. Love your two piece dress, looks fab on you.

  29. June 1, 2015 / 12:39 PM

    What a gorgeous summer day! I could spend all day walking around farmer’s markets. At first I thought you were going to say your friend was your sister. You guys look like you could be related! =)

  30. June 1, 2015 / 1:42 PM

    I love, love that market! I was in St Pete last year at a concert so the next morning we had brunch at Ceviche and then walked around the market. So many great things and good food. I did try a hot sauce that almost killed me and my mouth was on fire for the rest of the day lol

  31. June 1, 2015 / 2:07 PM

    The farmers market looks awesome!! Especially with views of the water. I love your outfit!! So cute! My corn explodes, your water glass explodes. What gives universe? Hope you have a fabulous week!

  32. June 1, 2015 / 3:01 PM

    Your pictures are so beautiful girl! That market looks so awesome and I can’t wait to see what you have planned :) Have a great week!

  33. June 1, 2015 / 3:32 PM

    How does the bottom even fall of a glass of water?! That is just crazy! I LOVE the new pictures! The lens is amazing! I wish I could rock a crop top as well as you!

  34. June 1, 2015 / 3:45 PM

    Oh wow, so jealous of that market! And your outfit!

  35. June 1, 2015 / 4:32 PM

    Love your photos. Can’t wait to see vaca pics and the new blog posts! Btw I just bought a coconut oil cream/lotion on Amazon that has great reviews. I will let you know how it is. I know you like to try new products! ;) I just found a really good coconut face wash also. xo

  36. June 1, 2015 / 7:09 PM

    That market looks wonderful! Perfect day for it too! That’s so crazy about the glass of water, that is so something that would happen to me, lol!

  37. June 1, 2015 / 8:59 PM

    is that a picture of your new kitchen? Omg if so!!! Can you take more pictures of it? Beautiful! Also which lens did you get? I have three for my camera and never feel like I am using the right one for the situation!!!

  38. June 1, 2015 / 10:24 PM

    The market looks like so much fun! I’ll have to check it out next time I’m over on the St. Pete side of town. So weird about the water glass – that happened to my bf one time when we were at dinner too!

  39. June 2, 2015 / 7:19 AM

    The hula hoop!!! Love that!!! You made me hungry for empanadas too!! Sad about getting soaked in white pants – that’s always my luck too!!

  40. June 2, 2015 / 7:51 AM

    I need to go to the St. Pete morning market sometime! Last weekend I went to the Farmer’s Market in Sarasota and was planning to write a post about it soon, too. And Kona Grill is one of my favorites! They have some great deals for happy hour and the one near me has a nice outdoor seating area.

  41. June 2, 2015 / 7:57 AM

    I’ve been to the landing before. Back in 05′ I believe. I remember that exact same spot you are sitting at by the water. I went to the Warped Tour and the girls we were with jumped into that water and it took a few people to get them out. Crazy day I tell ya.

  42. June 2, 2015 / 9:07 AM

    I felt like I was just looking at a magazine, those pictures are awesome! I really need to get a nice camera!

  43. June 2, 2015 / 12:48 PM

    Love your outfit, perfect for some sunshine strolling! Gorgeous pics girl ;)

  44. June 3, 2015 / 3:08 PM

    so jealous of your weekend and how close to the water you are! and to answer your question, yes! like EVERY TIME I try to fix something on WordPress. It’s seriously the part that makes me wish I had never switched over. It’s been bad the past week or so. I think my hosting company hates me since I’ve had to call so much!

  45. June 12, 2015 / 12:17 AM

    Oh man that place morning market is great! You guys take awesome photos!
