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.

I’m going to have a Country concert marathon this summer. I’ve never been a huge concert-goer, but I do love my Country. And listening to it all day on the radio, although my favorite, is becoming a little lacking. I need more. I need to be there, up front, boots on, singing along, and dancing until my feet hurt. I saw Garth Brooks perform a few weeks ago and now I have the itch. And lucky for me, many of my Country favorites are playing this summer. [Luke Bryan, Brooks & Dunn, Tim McGraw to start…gahhhhhhh!]

My favorite blog, Spell & the Gypsy had a fantastic FESTIVAL 15′ lookbook that perfectly set the tone for my summer inspiration. I usually wear my favorite pair of faded jeans, breezy top, and worn cowgirl boots for line-dancing and country concerts, but I gotta step it up this summer! These are some of my favorite performers and should be respected with good steeze [style and ease…I don’t know who made this word up but it seemed fitting for what I was trying to say.] And as the Spell ladies said, “Word on the dusty ground is, ‘keep it soft and feminine this season!'”. I love everything about this collection. Light blues, blush tones, peaches and corals, flowy dresses, bold jewelry, rock n’ roll tees…very country chic.

 Time for a summer of weekend getaways, dancing with good friends, staying up late, stomping in my dusty boots, drinking lemonade, and being “Country”. Now I just need a few brilliant outfits to tie it all together! Can’t wait to style up, layer down, and boots on!
