Fashion in the Garden ♥

My dad always kept a garden. You could always count on fresh tomatoes in our house. They smelled and tasted so good. When my husband and I purchased our first home last April the tulips & iris's had already emerged and the grass needed to be cut before the last box was even unpacked. Needless to say my dream of having my own garden was put off for a year.

This year I'm so excited to have the chance to put in my own garden. I dug out the small plot yesterday, filled it in with some fresh organic dirt, planted some romaine lettuce, and then fenced around it. I will add tomatoes and carrots this weekend.

Over the course of my thought process I decided that along with my new garden that I would surely need new work boots too right? I fell in love with the Hunter Wellington boots and I convinced myself that while they are a small splurge they are completely multi-purpose as clearly illustrated by the photos of Kate Moss above. So I snapped up a black pair from Nordstrom last Friday and I'm all set. Now I'm crossing my fingers and praying I have a green thumb!♥


  1. I've always wanted to grow my own garden too. My plan is to have a flower garden in the front, and the veggie garden in the back. I would LOVE to grow my own tomatoes. Ooooh and my own basil and cilantro. Yum!

    And I LOVE the dress in the second photo.

  2. nice, i'm gonna buy the black ones...


  3. Yup Nordstrom. I wore them today for the first time with black tights and a light pink cotton dress. They're actually super comfy!

  4. I've always loved the idea of having a garden, but considering I honestly have trouble keeping the bamboo in my apartment alive, I don't have high hopes for myself ;) Let us know how it works out!!
