My Beach Outfit at the Lavender Farm

At the end of August, we decided to stop by a local lavender farm, since it was conveniently on the way to Dan’s family boat. We expected to see a field of majestic purple flowers and to be smothered with the fragrant lavender scent.

But where are the lavenders?!

Unfortunately, we arrived too late! All the lavenders had lost their color so the field was very gray.

Since we were already here, I figured that I could just show you my beach/boating outfit.

I am wearing an old beach cover-up from American Eagle and my purple bathing suit from Aerie underneath. My beach hat, which I have worn almost every weekend this summer is from Lulu’s. My tote is a gift from my mom, but she says she got it from Payless! Similar styles are listed in the widget below.

On the bright side, we discovered a huge chess game on the property! Go big or go home, right? This was Dan and my first time playing chess together and it was surprisingly fun.

Neither of us had any sort of strategy, so it was a game of innocence and some confusion on my part. The game went on forever. We ended up having to stop mid-way because the farm was closing. We will never know who won!

When we thought we had seen it all, we found some chickens on our walk back to the car!

We were a bit disappointed to have missed the lavenders this year. After some research, we found that lavenders bloom around June, so we will have to make a note to come back that time next year. Hopefully, it will look more lively then! For now, I hope you gained some inspiration from my beach outfit and pencil in a visit to your own local lavender field next summer (before they die off)!

Anyone upset by how fast summer ended?

    So you did make the most of the withered lavender fields anyway 😉 With giant chessmen. I sure like the idea. xx

    I love your beach cover up and hat and the tote bag is so cute!
    It’s such a pity you missed the lavender in full bloom but the chess game looks fun!

    Aw! How sad that you missed the lavenders! I’m a little sad that the summer is over but I’m definitely ready for the fall 😁

    I had the same experience trying to visit the local sunflower fields this weekend. Turns out they’re no longer in bloom. Oh well! At least you got to play giant chess!

    Oh, how sad that you missed the lavenders! But your dress is super nice! 😉 And how great pictures you shoot anyway – I’m especially in love with the one of the a huge chess play!

    You’ll need to go back next year for the proper lavender pictures AND to figure who will win the chess 😉

    Aww, that’s a shame about the lavender. I love lavender too. Your outfit is super cute though! That big chess game reminds me of Harry Potter. lol

    Last time I went to London, me and my friends have been meaning to go to the Lavender Field! But our time was not enough and opted to go to the Stonehenge & Roman Bath tour instead. Do you happen to know when is the best time to go to there? Like when the Lavenders are in full bloom? <3

    Love the outfit btw!

    Your life sounds so fulfilling and incredible (despite the fact that you missed out on the lavenders!). And of course I love your outfit, especially how the hat looks with that dress! Hope you’re having an incredible week so far x

    Sure a bit late for the lavender 🙂
    I love your beach cover-up, the color is perfect <3

    Ah such a shame about the lavender, but your outfit is still super cute!

    Great post! I remember playing huge chess when I was younger, it’s great fun (even though I had no clue what I was doing) 🙂

    I love this beach cover-up that you’re wearing! It looks like you’re having some nice breeze going through. Man, I should’ve bought some beach cover-up’s because you’re rocking yours XD. I love your bag! It looks so spacious and you can take everything with you in one go XD.
