COUNTRY GIRL

Maxi Dress | fab’rik Denver
Belt | Buffalo Exchange
Boots | eBay

As a Colorado-native, I pride myself in being a true country girl. I grew up in Parker, had a couple acres of land as a backyard, played in the dirt, owned a pair of pink cowgirl boots, and had a true cowboy of a father to look up to. Being a country girl is a state of mind, a free spirit, daring, caring, sometimes swearing, giving her best, living her best. For me, it’s also a fashion trend and a common go-to when I am crossed with what to wear. I simply embrace my inner country girl with a sundress and my favorite pair of cowgirl boots. “Country” is always in style when you live in Colorado. One of my friends calls it “cowgirl chic”.

There is a field in front of my parent’s house that has the perfect country backdrop. Open acres of wild grass overlooking the Rocky Mountains, endless wooden fence, barely a dirt road, and surrounded by farms of horses, llamas, and goats. My sister and I played around in this field on a rainy afternoon. It was dreary and misty and perfect for running around in a pair of boots. I nearly ruined a new dress that I scored from fab’rik Denver, but hey – a little mud never hurt anybody. That’s the country girl attitude.

TIME OUT

Top | VANILLA STAR

We stumbled upon this dreamy valley when we were struggling to find parking for Muir Woods. We knew it was risky to visit on a Saturday, along with the rest of the world, and what seemed to be an endless road taking us further and further away from the entrance eventually brought us to this place. I jumped out of the car and asked my sis to snap some photos. It was kind of majestic and picturesque and we were the only ones there. The only thing that could have made it better was maybe a white horse and a picnic.

 I love places like this though. I am not a city person. Country girl all the way. Don’t get me wrong, I love visiting and galavanting around – but after a while it can get overwhelming and I get bored of concrete. Gotta escape back to nature, ya know? Into places like this. A time-out from city chaos. I will never forget this special place.

old and new

Floral Maxi Skirt | Pink’s Denver
Strappy Block Heels | Franco Sarto
Nude Bodysuit | H&M
Suede Moto Jacket | BNCI by Blanc Noir
Amelia Sling Purse | Be&D
Sunglasses | Urban Outfitters

I specifically planned this look for the farmer’s market at the Ferry Building this past weekend. It’s common for us fashionistas to coordinate our outfit based on where we’re going, but this look was randomly thrown together and then saved for Saturday morning. A mix of old & new, I picked up the Pink’s maxi skirt and Franco Sarto block heels right before the trip; the moto jacket, sunglasses, and Amelia sling have been living in my closet for a while. I sat on the floor in my bedroom with a glass of wine and threw it together, simply inspired by what I would want to wear at the farmer’s market. And here it is. Ta-Da!

It’s February and it’s 71 degrees in Denver. I am wearing a swim top and a t-shirt on my head [which is what my fiance does to keep his forehead from burning. I find it adorable and I’m trying to turn it into a fashion statement]. I suppose I’m training for summer but I know that winter is not done with us yet… But while winter is taking a nap, I’m taking full advantage to get me a tan!! Me need it bad.

Holla Days

My Christmas Eve outfit was a bit more unconventional this year. It consisted of a “Happy Holla Days” tank (had to), boho skirt, and legit cowgirl belt that I scored from a consignment store. All completed with cowgirl boots. But I also noticed that my wardrobe becomes more daring when I travel. I spent Christmas in Queenstown, New Zealand with the family + fiancé, which was perfect, because New Zealand was on my bucket list and I got to cross it off right before the end of 2016. Mastered procrastination right thurrr!

I also became obsessed with Lake Wakatipu, which is a stunning inland lake surrounded by The Remarkables mountain range. And Queenstown was the most quaint mountain town which got to benefit from the incredible views. My brother-in-law calls it “Vail on steroids”. Totally accurate.

The day was spent with good food, loving people, and lots of picture-taking. Seriously, my eyeballs were on overdrive. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more beautiful place. The Remarkables totally put the Rocky Mountains to shame…

Cheers to everyone from down under. Happy Holla Days, y’all!
