Today I want to talk about where gardening meets fashion. Usually, the two are mutually exclusive, but what a gardener wears is extremely important. One of the most essential items in the green thumb gals wardrobe are her boots. Over the years I have collected several pairs of boots. I chose each pair based on cut, color, and comfort–The Anatomy of the Perfect Boot.

The straps on the side make it easy to adjust. This is especially helpful if you want to wear socks with these as well.

The best part about having a collection of boots is that you can change your footwear from season to season. Tall boots are great for the winter months, and short boots keep you nice and cool during the summer.
