The goodlife dress travels

20/03/2016

"Soft indigo folds all tied up with a bow and deep pockets for holding scissors, twigs, seed packets and more. My good life hours are filled with plants, indoors and outside and this dress and apron all sewn up in one – is my kind of comfy. Plus it’s perfect for wearing over my favourite jeans (yes those ones that are worn beyond decency)."

 "Each wearer has shared what ‘the good life’ means to them and these pictures pretty much capture my happy place, my good life. At home surrounded by all things living and green – with the husband and cats of course! Grubby hands, thriving pot plants, forlorn succulents, healthy herbs and a few hours slowing down to take care of my green friends. I know I share it often here, but I never knew how much looking after plants would make me happy. I am chomping at the bit waiting for better weather that will let me outside."
"Not just props, as someone suggested, I do actually read my observer books, they come in so handy for reference and to identify native wild flowers, cacti, garden shrubs and ships, (well maybe that one is just a prop). Now I have had to post the dress on to the next person, what will I do without the pockets to carry around all my little books of knowledge and my secateurs while I am gardening? Running our own business has been the ultimate realisation for us living the good life. We work longer hours than ever, but on our own terms. Being my own boss has meant I can work when the daylight has gone and indulge my budding inner gardener at 11 am on a Tuesday morning – (once all our parcels have been sent) if I want to. We all know you have to grab and make the most of all daylight hours while you can, here in the winter."

 "The good life dress fitted into my life perfectly, so it was with a dash of reluctance that I took it off, washed, dried, wrapped and posted it on to it’s next adventure. You can follow it from the beginning here with Me and Orla and then on it’s next stop is with Belinda."
