I am a farm wife…I have two categories of blue jeans in my wardrobe: “good” and “farm.”
Here are my “good” and “farm” jeans.
In a post from last winter, “Winter Farm Chore Fashion Chic” (posted 2/14/2014), I characterized my winter chore and walk outfits as “Farm Wife Barbie meets Army Surplus Refugee.” My summer chore ensembles aren't much better:
· farm jeans, or shorts for indoors;
· old t-shirts with sleeves cut out;
· socks, preferably with less cotton and more synthetic fibers to wick moisture away and prevent blisters; and,
My t-shirt qualitative analysis criteria was simple: Would I be embarrassed to be caught wearing this shirt if a neighbor dropped by unannounced? A score of “Heck, yeah!” meant the shirt was far beyond repurposing as a rag. This shirt received a unanimous “Heck, yeah!” and was retired after that evening’s walk.
