Color it! IDGAF Garden Style

I’m spending entire days in the garden lately and I look ridiculous out there. I’m not all that worried about it, but I’m filthy by the end of the day, so I’m not wearing my cute clothes but rather an odd assortment of my workout clothes. There’s my running wardrobe: sports bras, sweat-wicking shirts in bright colors, and compression pants with secret little zipped pockets for your keys. Then there’s my old roller derby gear: tank tops, booty shorts, fishnets, and knee high socks. I’m pulling a little from both, skipping the fishnets and adding a work apron and garden clogs, plus a terribly unflattering but practical pair of sweatshorts. Maybe a hat to top it all off on a sunny day? And for the first time since I was five, I wish I had some overalls to wear.

So anyway, I made something for you. For all of us.

Break out those markers or colored pencils! Like so.

Coloring, woohoo! IDGAF Garden Style
(I cleaned up the type and moved things around when I scanned it, before I colored everything in.)

I’ll be outside in the garden if you need me, looking awesome. ;)

    Ha! I wear a variation of this for remodeling! I sometimes even run, paint smears and all, to Home Depot. Where did my vanity go? (PS Don’t forget bug spray & sunscreen!) Happy gardening!

    Great to hear that you’ve been able to re-purpose your roller derby gear. I have been reading your blog for years but the fact that you have a roller derby phase in your past was news to me! You go, grrrrl!

    I’ve been reading for years and just love your blog. This post was especially funny, charming, and relatable. Last weekend I found myself gardening (in the front yard) wearing a bright sports bra, tank top, pajamas shorts, and Chacos. I’m praying the neighbors didn’t notice me. :-)

    This cracked me up! I’m always dressed in a some variation of this outfit when I’m working in the yard, and I’m glad I’m not the only one :)
    I always love your illustrations – so cute!!
