Hold on there for a second. Who's wearing pants again? Not me! Yes me. You might think me Emersonian, saying I abhor pants-wearing, and then next thing you know, you get two consecutive posts of me wearing leg-splitters* (see previous post for clarification) But I have a legit excuse: I had to carry a watermelon.

My husband and I are obsessed with the watermelon we've been getting from our local farmers' market, and we wake up as early as we can so we can get a good melon to last us the week. Since the market is only a block away from our house, we like to hoof it even though that may mean we get all sweaty and tired from carrying all our produce.

I got charged with carrying the gigantic watermelon (which I expertly passed off to my husband using my "I'm adorable, I dressed up like a fox today" technique) so I had to wear pants since, you know, skirts and dresses hike up when you're lifting stuff. Plus, really, have you ever seen a fox in a dress?

  1. Your fox ears are so cute! When you said you had to carry a watermelon it made me think of the scene from Dirty Dancing when Baby was carrying the watermelons, lol! Heather

  2. Haha, you crack me up. But really, your hubby even let you think about carrying the watermelon?? Matt doesn't let me carry heavy things often not because he's being a gentleman, but because he says it makes everyone looking at us judge him. *sigh* At least I get out of it one way or another.

  7. Well, I think you look foxy in pants (see what I did there - sometimes my cleverness stuns even me!) - and it's a cute look for packing melons home. I love the DIY kimono. For reals.

  21. I adore the fox ears, I use to walk about in cat ears, I'm not quite sure why I stopped! Watermelon purchases always require pants, any large fruit or vegetable purchase really. I can't wait to get some pumpkins for Halloween, eeek, I'll be in my own place this year and will get to decorate with pumpkins. I'm only a little excited!!

    You look really cute! I adore going to farmers markets.
