Other times, I embarrass my family by rocking Carhartt overalls. Then there are those late summer days when I'm outside in my swimming suit, garden gloves and rubber boots, subdividing day lilies. Fortunately, I have a very private backyard. To cool off, I hop into the pool with the kids and act surprised when I'm the main target of the almighty garden hose.
Of course, I picture myself in a dainty, Anthropologie flower dress amidst the draping wisteria and lazy clematis. Usually, I pin these fantasies to my "Hort Fangirl" Pinterest page. In reality, I'm in a mishmash of attire that's 0% fashion and 100% function.
