FIELD TRIP PICKS ~ farm fields

Lately, I’ve been taking a day each weekend to get out of the city for a field trip. It doesn’t need to be far or fancy, just peaceful. Last weekend, moseyman, dog and I found the perfect huge field to wonder through and breathe fresh, perfectly temperate air. Miles of crops surrounded our sandy path. We saw potatoes, radishes and carrots bulging up out of the ground, we smelled acres of fresh parsley, and the only noise we heard (besides the occasional fly-by dirt bike hooligan) was the sound of field wheat gently brushing one another in the wind. The dominating wild flowers were unbelievable. With the sun bobbing in and out of the clouds, it was cold one minute and hot the next. These kinds of outings require stylish comfort and light layers. So, I decided to create a collage of some affordable field trip picks… Inspired by wheat fields and open skies…

Tsumori’s tsunami

Tsumori Chisato‘s spring 09 collection is so consistently saturated with incredible layers of color, fabric and shape, that after viewing her entire collection in one sitting, you can be left feeling slightly overstimulated, as if listening to a playlist of only up-tempo hits.  That said, I haven’t seen a runway this beautiful in a while. In fact each outfit resembles a painting. With mounds of fabric, gathered up skirts, cape-like sleeves and shapes of every kind imaginable, it’s like 10 collection ideas in one collection. If I could nab just one piece for myself to saunter about in the city streets, I would no doubt be queen for a day. Check out the runway shots, then below that, a few simple, wearable, “buyable” pieces.

The bottom three pieces are available at the fantastic bird shop.
