Farm Fresh

 
The route I take to work is quite scenic. This is a little abandoned barn I pass by every day. There's many charming places like this, but this is one of  my favorites.  Remember a few posts back I wanted to sell seafood by the sea when I saw an old seafood truck for sale? Well, this little barn makes me want to be a farmer.  It should be easy. I spent the first 8 years of my life on a farm. I even know how to milk a cow (bet you didn't know that about me!)
     What do you think of when you hear the word "farm"? I think of cows and chickens. And when I think of those two animals, I think milk and eggs. And what's a farm without a farmer? All those things inspired my outfit. The yellow yolk of an egg, the white creaminess of milk, the redness of the barn, the plaid shirt and denim overalls a farmer would wear (they really do dress like that here).
     Pretty soon the farmers market will be open and there will be produce, home baked goodies, crafts, potted herbs and lovely brown eggs for sale. All of it farm fresh.

Farming digs:
Jones New York  plaid jacket: thrifted
DIY scarf blouse
Hydraulic denim skirt: thrifted
No name white bag: thrifted

With a little TLC this place will be in tip top shape!





Daffodils are growing everywhere along the roadside.




I think there's just enough room for a cow and a couple of chickens in this little barn. I'll get eggs, milk, butter and cream. What more do I need?





You didn't expect me to wear my cute wedges out here did you? I use these boots for slogging around in the yard.



Farm fresh eggs I get from a coworker. I always recycle the cartons.


Yes, I've got milk!

See you all tonight at Monday Mingle, Visible Monday and Thrifters Anonymous


Until next post, happy dressing,

  3. LOVE that barn! I'm so glad you stopped by and let me know. Your outfit is adorable and perfect for a photo shoot down on the farm. Not sure you want to milk the cow in a skirt though. Ha! There is NOTHING better than farm fresh eggs. Makes the store bought ones taste bland in comparison.

    I love your outfit. I wish I could make a scarf blouse but then I'd have to tie the scarf around my knees to cover my boobs!!
