Style at a Certain Age is a lifestyle blog by Beth Djalali dedicated to aging with grace, strength, and beauty.
last saturday mr. style and i hopped in the car and toodled our way to our local home and garden tour. rain or shine five homeowners opened their backyards and gardens for one glorious afternoon to grateful gawkers like yours truly. spoiler alert, the sun was shining with temps registering in the seventies. that’s a perfect day in my book, and i know the docents agreed. what fun mr. style and i had walking up and down beaten garden pathways, taking in the beauty of nature tweaked with a whole lot of elbow grease. gardening isn’t for sissies that’s for darn sure! when it comes to down to it there’s lot’s of planning and prep work that goes into a garden, but the end result is so gratifying.
what did i wear on the garden tour? something casual like denim works. and you can never go wrong with a breton tee. this one is from st. james. comfy footwear is a must to log in a few miles of walking. why not add a pop of color to jazz up this ootd? if i’m wearing red pointy-toed flats, i might as well tote a red handbag. one with a long strap so i don’t have to fuss with it. “in for a penny in for a pound,” my mother always said. out came red tassel earrings and a bold red lip. all that’s left is a pair of sunnies, and this girl is ready! how about you? are you ready to take a peek at the garden tour? let’s go.
last stop of the day was champy’s a local fried chicken joint that has the best, wait for it, fried chicken ever! sometimes, a girl just has to indulge in the local cuisine.
