On March the 9th of this year I shocked the garden bloggers world with this post about fashionable footwear for gardening and made a bit of a name for myself as the garden bloggers fashionista. Personally, I was rather surprised that people were not aware of what is out there to brighten even the dullest day for gardeners. I mean, why would anyone in her right mind want to wear this
when there is this, (pretty aren't they? And you can buy a matching pair of wellies for your little girl too)
or this available in the shops. Poppies or sunflowers on your wellies, what's not to like about that?
Much better, don't you think, than those very drab forest green wellies? Or how about these?
Tweed wellies, how very lady Muck, don't you think? But if wellies are not your thing why not go for this
or even this. Just add some colour to your day, and cheer yourself up on even the most dull and gloomy days of the year.
Wooden shoes, sorry, couldn't resist, I'm Dutch, so what did you expect? And no, I do NOT wear those things, never have and never will. I have a reputation as a fashionable gardener to maintain, thankyouverymuch!
Gardening is about having fun, so why not wear fashionable and fun footwear? And why stop there? Don't tell me that there are still female gardeners out there wearing these knee pads
when these are so much prettier. They make you feel very stylish wearing these ones, don't they? Oh and look, a pair of garden gloves sprinkled with flowers, what fun!
And speaking of gloves, what about these foxgloves? Aren't they pretty and colourful?
And you can add some more colour to your gardening day by using these gardening tools. Why go for drab stuff when you can have these instead?
And if you have a little girl that likes to help you in the garden, treat her to something nice to wear like these pretty ladybird gloves and matching hat. You can't start too early with teaching kids that gardening is all about having fun and that it doesn't stop you from looking good as well.
I'll leave you with this last picture for those of you who want to be the most stylish and elegant gardeners of your street, village, city, state/country or, if at all possible, the whole wide gardeners world.
Flowery garden wellies with matching wheel barrow and there's a matching pair for your little girl as well. There, that will leave your fellow gardeners speechless, don't you think? And green with envy, of course!
Happy wheel barrowing!
