Do you remember your favorite children’s book? There were the ‘Three Little Pigs’ who went to the market,’ the ‘Three Blind Mice’ and the ‘Three Billy Goats Gruff’ to name a few. It appears the perfect formula for kids stories throughout history was farm animals and the number ’3.’ And I was no stranger to furry little farm animals growing up in the country, I just preferred barbies over barnyards.
While my sister, Jody, frolicks in my family’s field throughout this post; I styled her in some of my favorite winter essentials. Sidenote ~ Wear these styles soon while they’re on clearance now and before they’re officially thawed out by Spring. Here is the tale of ‘The Three Little Trends to Try this Winter without Breaking the Big Bad Bank’ …
1. Hats ~ Try a winter hat with leather details in neutral tones. Sure, hats keep your head warm, but they’re a unique accessory. The world famous Goorin Bros. hatmakers are a great place to browse styles. Also, January 15th is National HAT DAY so fish out that fedora or find one of your favorite floppies.
2. Tights & Booties ~ The short boots you may pair with a delicate dress in the Spring for a music festival can be easily paired with your favorite solid or patterned tights now. Plus, there’s major boots sales right now so you can get 3 pairs now for the same price as 1 would have cost you a month ago.
3. Toggle Coats ~ These distinct Paddington Bear-esque style jackets with the unique ‘toggle’ button detail were just featured as a trend alert on Who What Wear.
Our neighbor’s 2 little love Goats poked their heads out and were not amused with our fashion outing while Lily, the white horse, last featured here snacked in her stable.
Country Livin’ Basic Goat Facts ~ ‘Female goats are referred to as “does” or “nannies”, intact males are “bucks” or “billies”, and their offspring are “kids”. Castrated males are “wethers”. ~Wikipedia
Goats are also very intelligent animals and don’t care about fashion bloggers luring them into a photoshoot with fugi apples. The End.
