Fighting The Frump- outdoors style

Photobucket

This weeks Frump Fighters(hosted by the most lovely Fussypants herself); is all about fighting the frump, while still being weather ready! (I promise pictures later)

Now, as most of us know from past posts, I raise some dairy goats. Yet I still find time to interact with the 'publicz' and look good(most of the time) doing so. I have found some quick easy things that make life in the great outdoors easier, and less frumpy(cause seriously rain pants in the grocery store DO NOT fly).

* I have my favorite pair of Tennis shoes that are my 'all around' shoes, but when I discovered I loved them I went and bought ANOTHER pair, for those 'town' runs. Just make sure you keep them seperate!

* Try to have ton's o' baby wipes handy, they can clean up ANY mess.

* ALWAYS! make sure you run a brush through your hair before venturing out into the publicz, they remove all sorts of stray particles, and leave you 'mess free' quickly and easily, I always carry a .50 comb in my purse.

* Keep your publicz jacket seperate from your 'outdoors' jacket when possible. I don't know how many times I have gone to run into the store and than had to shed the warm outer layer as I realized that 'opps! i got my jacket dirty'(around here its a occupational hazard)

* Above all else my most important Outdoor's frump fighting Tip is ALWAYS HAVE YOUR HANDS CLEAN! There is nothing worse than going to grab your venti half caf non fat no foam triple shot mocha with dirty hands, those starbucks gals' give you dirty looks, and really who wants to look gnarly anyways?!

Big grin! I love it!
Last year during kidding season I had to make a quick run to the store. I checked the children to make sure they were halfway presentable... It was only after I got back home that I realized I had goat placenta dried on my jeans.
I guess I needed some of your baby wipes.

i try and always go to the bathroom before i leave the house. that way i have to wash my hands, duh, and i at least am in the prescence of a mirror. oh and we keep toothbrushes in both bathrooms in case we need a quick once over before leaving.

I agree wash your hands! There is nothing worse than that. Also my Mama always said, "Wash your hands you might get worms."

hey mac's mom, you commented over at my blog but i can't seem to reply to it. but you said you are on a weight loss crusade before you get some shirts, i tell you DONT WAIT! my weight has changed as much as 15 lbs and the same shirt still fits. they also have good patterns as i said. its instant weight loss in a shirt with the right size!

The outdoor coat and town coat are so true, even if you don't raise goats.
