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.

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!
