A little bit country

I’ve mentioned on several occasions that I really don’t have an athletic bone in my body (getting dirty and sweaty is so not my idea of fun!)…but going for a long walk is something I’ve always really enjoyed!!

My husband, on the other hand, has only recently developed an interest in walking as a form of exercise/recreation; right about the time when I broke my foot and couldn’t walk, actually!!  Cue Alanis Morissette’s “Ironic” song, right?!

But  – thankfully! – it seems like things are slowly but surely improving for me in the mobility department; and since hubby had been wanting to show me this old barn he discovered in one of our local parks, we decided that I would accompany him for an evening stroll…with a photo-op as our ulterior motive!!

Hard to believe that a little rural oasis like this can exist smack-dab in the middle of the city, isn’t it?! The barn is fenced off – for safety, I assume – so we couldn’t explore it; but with me in this white knit dress (it’s from Joe Fresh!) and heeled booties, that probably wouldn’t have been such a good idea anyway!!

    Love that Joe Fresh dress on you! Adore the way you styled it. I love taking walks and wish I could convince my husband that it's fun thing to do. Great place for a photo shoot.You always have great backgrounds! You're just FAB of course!

      Oh my gosh, I think I'm changing from a "shoe" addict into a "boot" addict, dear Tina…I want to wear them with EVERYTHING!! Even in the middle of summer!! Thank you so much for visiting again (I like your blog, too!!)

      Thank you very much, Elsie!! I adored the crochet texture of this dress as soon as I saw it…it adds just a touch of that boho vibe that always feels so "right" to me!! ๐Ÿ™‚
