Stylish Gardening Outfit
May 13, 2010 § Leave a comment
I spent the whole afternoon laying new edging for the flowerbeds in the backyard yesterday. I usually wear an old set of clothes that I don’t car much about, but after spending the day in paint splatter jeans and an old baggy sweatshirt, I was longing for more stylish gardening attire.
Long khaki pants and a fitted denim shirt protect against scrapes and sunburns. The tank and the belt help with maintaining modesty while letting a gardener do all the bending and stooping that comes when pulling weeds, watering, and digging. The shoes are waterproof and comfy enough for extensive standing and don’t have holes that will let dirt in.
And, the nautical touches gives the outfit a sense of irony.
