Floral and Khaki in the Garden

Here’s a cute top I fell in love with at a local thrift store. It was too big, however, but nothing a little cinching couldn’t fix. My stretchy belt came in handy!

Top: Thrifted
Pants: Swapped
Belt: Swapped
Cuff: Roberta Oakes
Shoes: Payless

I paired my floral top with olive-green pants, which I rolled up to show off my loafers. Overall, this is a thrifty outfit.

It’s cute enough to run errands in, or grab a latté with hubby, but it’s not something I have to worry about if I muck around in the garden–something I love doing this time of year. My backyard is a peaceful, happy place where I can scout out birds, and drink wine in the shade while my dog sunbathes.

Seattle summers are short so I learn to appreciate them. Fortunately, winters are mild. I plant lots of types of flowering plants so I have something pretty to look at all year. There are a few weeds in my pesticide-free yard, but I don’t mind. I want the wild bunnies to eat organic!
