Turkeys, pheasants, ducks, peacocks or curvy brunettes? Whatever your preferred bird is during the holidays; there’s nothing like waking up in your hometown knowing the only fashion concerns are ‘What to Wear’ while you prep food, relax or take a hike outdoors during the day.
I’ve mentioned I grew up in a small Nor-Cal town called Ukiah. While four-wheeling, horseback riding and skeet shootin’ aren’t my every day routine up there, country style is another story. I styled my sister, Jody, for a day out ‘birdwatching’ and from the poofy vest to the poofy side bun, here’s her country lovin’ meets prep style below…
Bird Watching Fashion 101~ Go with neutrals, denim, and a bright fun vest for your instant ‘J-Crew Meets a Cockatoo‘ style spotlight.
Footwear for Faux Outdoor Activities ~ There are outdoor winter hikes where you’ll be knee-deep in mud. Conversely, there’s little flat trails off the side of the road that make you feel good about getting some fresh air and seriously low-impact cardio. For those faux trails, Converse, oxfords and flat boots will do the trick.
The Scene ~ Two ducks taking an afternoon swim in a pond near Mendocino Jr. College. PS: In case you’re having a really awkward holiday dinner next month, here’s a lame little duck joke. Q. What do you call two ducks & a cow? A. Quackers & Milk
ABC’s of Bird Watching Accessories ~ From layering over a V-neck to snapping outdoorsy Instagram classics, you’ll want to be warm. Bright puffy vests over a v-neck and chambray top are not only comfortable, it gives off the instant outdoorsy magazine model look. (Sidenote) ~Don’t wear super shiny earrings around flocks of birds, but do remember shades, binoculars and sunscreen.
When you go home for the holiday’s are you outdoors or is it too cold to venture outside? Cue the cozy fireplace… ~xoDale
