As many of you know I have a small farm thing going on. Despite the freedom of wearing insulated overalls to work everyday I’m often pulled into the fantasy of skirts. So today instead of bringing you dead pigeons and war, let’s look at fashion.
I tried this look. At the thrift store I found a beautiful white prairie skirt. It was huge so I pleated it in the back to sort of look like a bustle. My husband smiled the first time I went out to walk the goats in it. Do I need to tell you how dirty it was after the goat kids mauled me with love? I couldn’t even enjoy their affection.
If you notice the rooster is eying the milk maid’s ankles. Not a good thing. Where are her muck boots when she needs them? Granted they’d look terrible with the pink dress. Here’s my issue: How do you keep the skirt from being stepped on when your milking?
Okay, here’s an outfit I think I could do. By the way, if any of you have an old pair of wooden clogs size 8 American I’d gladly take them off your hands.The dark skirt and jacket are almost stylish–but you definitely need the clogs to make it work. Adorable apron as well. Sign me up (Oh yeah. The Rooster).
I can’t imagine anyone looking bad in this dress, but did she really garden in it? I think not. But maybe I’m wrong. We find a similar dress on this pretty girl gathering eggs . . .
When you’re done farming for the day you can go off with your significant other as long as he’s wearing his hat with a feather.
