It’s true. I’m a city girl and always will be at heart. Having family in the country, however, means I get the wonderful opportunity to visit them in the mountains. As you might have figured out, the attire is much different. If you’re struggling with what to wear when you visit the country yourself, this city girl has it all figured out and I can show you ways that will leave you looking and feeling your best! I’m giving you three tips to help on your next country getaway.
1. Wear heels.
It’s OK to forget practicality. If you wore heels in the city, then by all means wear them in the country, although you may want to leave your Louboutins at home. Sometimes I’ll wear my chunky heeled boots, for a nice compromise. Clearly in this look I wasn’t too worried about wearing my favorite leopard print heels! If you do choose to wear heels like I did, be comfortable with the fact that you will be labeled as an outsider. My family is so understanding and wouldn’t expect me to show up any other way!
2. Dress up your jeans.
Think casual chic. Jeans and heels are one of my favorite combinations to showcase this casual chic look. I don’t feel overdressed when I wear jeans and still feel my normal chic self. Pair them with a chic top or cute sweater like the one I’m wearing. Accessorize with some jewelry, your favorite wool coat, or some leather gloves and you’ve perfected the wintery country-chic look too.
3. Don’t forget the lipstick.
Just because you’re going to the country, doesn’t mean makeup and lipstick are optional. Be bold and go for that bold lip color that has you feeling fabulous! You’ll be glad you did!
