|Lady in the Garden by Emile Claus|
Gardening can have a detrimental effect on a person's clothing sense.
Yesterday afternoon I found myself walking down to the coffee shop after having spent the morning tidying the gardens. It wasn't until I was walking home that I caught a glimpse of myself in a store window:
- bright turquoise mid-calf t-shirt dress
- man's blue denim work shirt
- variegated yellow ankle socks
- red clogs
- linen hat with a large maroon silk flower drooping off the front brim
On the best of days my style could be considered slightly eccentric. But put me anywhere near a garden and apparently I have a complete fashion meltdown.
