a day at the farm






wow!  we are still having idyllic weather here in Middle Tennessee.  kids are still on their Fall break.  yesterday my friend S. invited us to her farm to feed chickens and play with dogs.  thought it was just fitting to pull out yet another almost forgotten piece - my Old Navy denim overalls.  i used to wear these long time ago when kids were itsy-bitsy and Mr. Wonderful and i would take them to a local pumpkin patch each Fall.  never thought of denim overalls as a statement piece but - never say never!  colorful floral top comes from Goodwill (new purchase).  i bought it because it reminded me of some Tory Burch happy floral prints from last spring (?).
roll up those denim overalls, get a pretty brown clutch, floral shirt and camel booties...  and - voila!  overall makeover!


check out those shoulder pads!!!

the chickens did not care much for Nina's rendition of famous chicken dance

chasing poor little chickens
finally Nina gains trust and hand-feeds chickens okra seeds
just chillin'...  although it was too cold to swim- we had a great time Friday (i left my clutch and suede booties at home of course, did not think i would need them at the farm! lol).  hope you are having a great weekend!

p.s.
first photo is Tory Burch flower print from Harpers Bazaar and the second is from  Elle.
