So I took the grubby, getting down and dirty approach to garden wear, instead of going all prissy with a garden party-style outfit. Fingers crossed the rest of the ladies did too. Otherwise, I'm going to look like a big ol' mess compared to them. But heck, don't I usually anyway!?
Since we just arrived home from our Yellowknife getaway, our garden is a bit of a disaster. So, I made a deal with Ian that if he took these photos, I would spend the evening weeding and cleaning things up. Somehow, I think he got the better end of the deal. I seriously lasted 15 minutes and 15 bug bites before I called 'er quits.
So, garden wear. Basically my approach is to pick out my comfiest jeans/jean shorts and my comfiest top. As you an see, there's no glamour when you're out in my garden. It's all about the knee pads and the suspenders.
From top to bottom:
Shirt: Erasmus Apparel from Yellowknife
Suspenders: Ian's grandfathers
Shorts: Warehouse One Jean Store
Knee pads: Ian's
Don't forget to check out what the other What to Wear ladies put together. There are five of us posting today, so there should be a good variety of outfits.
