"It is no bad thing to celebrate a simple life." -Tolkien

I almost bought a few outfits from my sister-in-law who sells really cute (really expensive) clothes. My husband reminded me that I live on a farm. Looking at those darling capris and frilly shirts- yea, they won’t last long around here. I need sturdy clothes on this farm and Walmart isn’t cutting it either. I also have the dilemma of being 5’10” and pants and shorts just aren’t made for tall girls. They will be riding up here or too short there or sagging where they oughtn’t be! And then I laid eyes on a Duluth Trading Company catalog. Oh my. My farmgirl eyes lit up.

These overalls are my new everyday wear. They are so comfortable! They have many pockets- you can store pens, seed packets, a cell phone, gardening shears and much, much more. The material moves with you and feels good. They have details, like double material over the knees, and snaps to bring the leg up a little. They also have shorts.

Duluth Trading Company (they aren’t paying me a dime, y’all, I’m just excited to find real good work clothes) also has great shirts, and other work wear that cost a bit more than Walmart but less than Cabi, and will last for a long, long time. It is amazing how much you can get done with the right tools, and that includes clothes!

The model for their gardening line is my new role model. Doesn’t she look amazing?! I am a fan of bad-ass women. The headband she is wearing has protection against insects and the sun and can be used as a face covering, around the neck, or to keep one’s hair back. I have been wearing mine nearly every day.

My son has been giving me virtual ukulele lessons. So fun! I am wearing the overalls and headband here.

Well, I better get outside and get my farm work done before it gets too scorching. Looking at 100 degrees today. Hmm, which overalls should I wear today? Happy farming!

      As long as I sing louder than the ukulele, I sound great! ha! I’m enjoying the instrument for sure. Much easier than the guitar! Hope your studies are going well.

      1. Thanks. Just finished up two online media classes and starting the next two next week!!

    They look fabulous and practical! Love dungarees! And the headband what an excellent idea. Foul weather here, cooler and very wet now for two weeks or so. At least I only need to water the greenhouse and although typing to you at just before 5am I don’t need to rush outside, but the weeds, oh my goodness, they are loving this weather.

      Lucky! England is hogging the rain! We did have a glorious downpour yesterday, the first in over a month.

    Thanks for the post. I read it to my wife this morning; she appreciated it. Finding the right tools and clothes is difficult these days. We’ve resulted to patching our favorite, best fitting work clothes. Thank you for another resource.
