Smarter Style: Look Good in the Garden

Posted by   + Show Post

Gardening season is in full swing and I have some tough work ahead of me this weekend -- we just built a huge raised bed in our front yard, which means lots of raking, digging, transplanting and hauling around of heavy rocks.

But just because I am going to be sweaty and dirty doesn't mean I can't also be stylish. Here's some cute looks to protect your head, hands and feet.

How stylin' are these garden clogs? They're sturdy enough to help you push with your foot to get  through tough soil with a shovel, and cute enough you'll be happy to wear them to pop out to the garden center. (Sloggers, $32.99).

You need a hat to protect your scalp and face from the sun.....this paper and straw number is cheap, effective, won't make you all sweaty, and has a certain flair. (Kmart, $9.99)

These garden gloves are soooo cool with their paisley print, and as someone who has nursed scratches and insect bites on my arms from gardening, I love the longer length. (Womanswork, $29.99).

Are you a gardener? What's your favorite piece of gear?

I love those gloves. I don't have any fave pieces of gear. I could use some new stuff for sure.

Cute stuff.  I'm not a gardener though.
