Guest Post: Country Chic

There's a time and place for city living and then there's the much needed escape to a place with trees, fireflies and a sky full of stars...especially in the summertime. Head for the hills (or the plains), mason jar full of lemonade in hand and some bluegrass on the radio, while wearing these southern belle inspired country chic pieces. They are feminine and sweet -- just the way you'll have your tea while wearing them. 
Modcloth, Outdoor Potluck dress, $48
This gray color is on trend for the city but transitions perfectly for your long drive out into the country. This sweet summer dress with tiny gingham, ruffles, pleating and eyelet packs a load of design into one feminine, southern charmed package at under $50!

The turquoise color center stone whispers southwest jewelry and is the most country chic of the three color options. I see this with a flowy white dress and medium brown leather cowboy boots for an afternoon out.

Forever 21, Belted plaid woven top, $20
You can't get much more country than a red plaid shirt -- but the tunic length and belting of this one makes it feminine as it accentuates your waist. The price is also pretty unbeatable. Pair this with skinny jeans and fringed out sandals for the complete casual country look. 

Feather earrings are huge right now -- and for good reason! They're natural, beautiful, complement your hair and add an additional soft texture near the face. These ones on Etsy are a great price and a beautiful color. Country chic is about appreciating the finer things in life -- and that includes the beauty of nature. 

There are plenty of other country chic trends to watch -- what are some of your favorites?
