Style: 48 bottles

No worries, I am not talking about last night's excesses (I wish).
I'm talking about:

They are for watering the rabbits. Just in case you were wondering: currently there are 48 of them. And they have to be filled every single day, all 48 of them. It can get a tad tedious.

This is my second "outfit-post while doing chores"-attempt. On the agenda today? Watering and feeding the rabbits.

Some random posing in between.

Let me explain the next few pictures: Like I mentioned before, it snowed non-stop for 48 hours last weekend. We have 7 aviaries with wire ceilings for our birds. Here is the thing: if the snow is of the sticky variety, it doesn't fall through. Instead it forms a solid, thick layer on top of the aviary. A layer that gets heavier and heavier.
If it won't stop snowing or, even worse, starts raining on top of it, the aviary could eventually collapse.

I spent a good part of Sunday (and then again Tuesday) using a broom and knocking the snow off the aviaries. Let me tell you, it's not as much fun as it sounds. It's hard work (with your arms raised up the entire time), and you get totally soaked because the snow falls on you.

My hubby was away for all of it (lucky bastard), so it was me against the elements.
The only good thing? I'm getting killer guns here! Or at least I hope so.

I'm just re-enacting it here. The real deal was way messier!

Dress: ModCloth (no longer available, similar); jacket: H&M (old); over-the-knee socks: Payless; booties: Target; headband: Forever21 (similar); wrist warmers: Esprit (old); aviators: American Eagle

  1. Such a cute outfit, I have been feeling very blah about my clothes lately and wish I had as many cute dresses as you which I guess just means I need to do some shopping soon!

  2. I love the dress! I can't believe you wear such lovely stuff while doing farm work! 48 bottles to be filled every day would really bore me.

    I thought knocking the snow off looked fun before I saw the pictures of the snow falling on you.

  3. I want that jacket! Gimme! If you do, I'll split filling up the bottles with you. :)

  4. 48 bottles is a lot! Wow you guys keep busy! Very cute outfit but all I can think about is how cold you have to be...this is why I can't be fashionable I'm always worried about how cold/uncomfortable I will be :)

  5. We have the same bottle for our baby cows, just much bigger. It takes FOREVER to feed them and we usually wear coveralls not adorable dresses. You have much more style than we do though :)
