Nancy Marcus’ takes on how to Stay in Town in Style

Today We have the pleasure of having Nancy Marcus from Marcus Design sharing with us her tricks to enjoy ourselves while in town.  I am already putting into practice some of her clever and low-key suggestions on how to rediscover our city or town like a tourist and see the beauty in the everyday activities.  Thank you Nancy for so beautifully collaborate with this series.


Hello lovely Belle Vivir readers!! I am so honored to be here today and I thank Julie for including me in on this fabulous ‘Staycation in Style’ series. 


My personal favorite thing to do when not jet setting away for the summer is to explore my own city, and more specifically, the local markets

What is more summery and inspiring than a farmer’s market, where you can indulge in the fresh and colorful bounty of the season? 

Or better yet, discover fabulous treasures at the flea market, and come home with a bundle of blooms from the flower market to adorn your table. It’s also a great way to eat locally grown foods and stumble upon local artists. I can’t think of a better way to spend a holiday in town!
