Gardening & Fabulous

Beautiful, straw, gardening hat: Perfect!

With spring here to stay, all the activities and hobbies that we must put on hold for winter are back for us to enjoy once again. One activity that always reminds me that spring is without a doubt alive is: Gardening. From planting flowers to actually having a full on garden, nothing says spring better than beautiful blossoms. However, don’t let your blossoms be the only beautiful part about gardening and planting flowers this spring. Here are some ideas on how to keep your gardening apparel just as beautiful as the flowers you are planting.

Go Bright: Beautiful flowers are always full of life and shining in multiple, vibrant colors. So take a note from your flowers and let your gardening apparel make a bold statement as well. From bright, fun gardening gloves or aprons to a unique, funky pair of sunglasses, color is always better when doing your gardening this spring.

Hats: Protecting yourself from the sun is also important as you start to spend more hours outside. However, you can still do this in style. With hats being all the rage these past couple seasons, there are a variety of ways to protect yourself in style. From a oversized beach hat to a more subtle wider-brimmed fedora, hats will not only keep you looking stylish in your garden but also protect you from the elements.

Have fun: Now lets not pretend that gardening is all fun and games, it can be a lot of hard work. However, it is always important to remember to have fun, and what better way to put a smile on your face than to catch a reflection of yourself in the window looking fabulous. So don’t be afraid to buy some new, bright, possibly over priced gardening tools (haha!)..... it’s always exciting to use new things. Also, be creative when picking out gardening accessories and apparel. It’s probably not necessary to dress in a formal gown, but choose bright colors, have fun with hats and sunglasses, and let your personal style shine through!

With spring here to stay, have fun when choosing your gardening accessories, apparel, and tools and let your personal style shine through. And remember, no one ever said you can’t be more beautiful than the flowers you’re planting, so don’t be afraid to go bold, and look and feel fabulous inside and out!!
