I like dressing up. And painted nails. Red lips. Dresses. Linen. Lace. Shoes. Make-Up. Some days I bother with this stuff. Some days I don’t. Some days I get decked out and don’t go anywhere. Other days I leave the house without even looking in the mirror. It depends on my mood. What can I say? I’m a girl.
A couple weekends ago, I shared a picture of myself wearing my gardening clothes, many of you commented that you preferred the honesty of that post. So here is another gardening look from a couple weeks ago.
My typical summer day consisted of me getting up, pulling on a pair of jeans and wandering down to the garden (often with my iPod.) I’d throw myself into weeding and harvesting, often crawling between the tomato cages and rifling through a mass of 6 foot tall pole bean plants. After I finished what I needed to do or the heat finally got to me, I would come back in the house (usually with a few bean leaves stuck to me, dirt under my nails and my hair a frizzy mess) and shower and put on some pretty clothes. (Like seen in the last photo—Old Navy dress and cardigan.) Then I would slip on an apron and clean up and put away veggies, cook or do other household things. After that, I’d run errands or help my Mom with whatever was on the schedule for that day. Sometimes I’d go back out to the garden and pick some more veggies if I didn’t get to them in the morning. (Nothing too strenuous in the afternoon sun.)
