Tomorrow is Earth Day, ladies!
The world is full of natural beauty, and for me I’ll never get over the pastoral simplicity of a sunlit field, especially first thing in the morning when the dew is still heavy and the birds are just waking up.
Growing up I spent several summers at an equestrian camp in rural north Georgia. My assigned horse was a Tennessee Walker named Jake, and he had a naturally crimped mane and tail as copper as a penny. I loved that horse. He’d follow me around like a giant auburn shadow, always ready to oblige me for our daily trail rides, and never complaining when I’d braid ribbons into his mane. Eventually I became a junior counselor at the camp, leading my own trail rides, overseeing the morning rituals of the barn, and fantasizing about becoming a rodeo barrel racer.
Some styles are as enduring and predictable as a sunrise, so here’s my warm weather interpretation of the classic “jeans and t-shirt” look, with a tip of the hat to my 13-year-old former self.
