rural chic

Rural chic is the term I use to describe how my kids dress. It usually includes either rubber boots or cowboy boots. Requisite for this style is the mixing of patterns. Holes and dirt are good, too.

As all good two year olds do, Norah has taken to dressing herself. She starts the day in pajamas, then changes to chase her big siblings outside. She comes in if any part of her gets wet, and changes again. But wait...she hears her jam in the kitchen and must change now into a dress and some dancing shoes. After a few twirls she's ready to transform this party look into rural chic by adding leggings, a sweater, and some rubbers. 

We also mustn't forget the hat: hunter orange and belonging to her cool older brother does the trick.

She trots along after whichever sibling is closest, visits the ponies, pokes a stick in the dirt, then comes into the potting shed because she knew I was in there with Jude. She grabbed his sunglasses and decided that she needed a quick nurse.

She hops off my lap and off she goes again, wherever her rubber boots will take her. 


  1. I have no words any more. These posts. I just die of joy and love.

  2. I get made fun of for calling wellies rubbers... just by folks who aren't from 'round here! Beautiful, as always!

  3. Oh my, she is growing so fast and strong and wise. I love that you share with us. Thanks so much.
