I think it was Fashion Week somewhere in the world last week. I thought about how Dressing for the Field is both a matter of practicality an expression. LOL
Gum boots, a rainy season must in Tanzania
Wearing my field hat. Sun protection is a must.
Now to assemble outfits.
Gum boots & blue!
Me, next to my truck, wearing my red! ooh la la!
Seriously, I enjoy wearing simple, comfortable color coordinated clothes while in the field. It makes me feel like me plus it helps me stand out a bit. I like that. More on Dressing for the Field at a blog post I shared last year, here.
