What I Wore-Chambray in the Country

Last week when my husband was on vacation we had the crazy fortune of having not one, not two, but three babysitters.  That is pretty much unheard of for us.  And none were even planned, they just popped up so we took major advantage.  We were even able to take a little day trip on one of those days, so we decided to head up to Jamestown, a sweet little town we like to visit that has lots of antique shops and a great country atmosphere.  I thought what better day to bust out my new chambray top!

Excuse the wrinkles, it was a bit of a car ride to get there.  I should have brought my Downy Wrinkle Release. That stuff works good!  Once in town, we drove around some of the back roads to find a fun little spot to snap some WIW shots-my husband is really starting to get into this now!  We found this light blue weathered barn and pulled on over.

Now, I love the charms of the country, but honestly think I am a city girl.  All I could think of were ticks and rattlesnakes as I was posing for these pics.  I thought for sure I was coming out of there with some type of bite.

Luckily though, I remained unscathed.

And these shoes didn't make it past the photo shoot.  I brought flip flops in my purse and put those puppies on for wandering around the town.  Bright neon wedges and uneven country streets don't mix. I may be a city girl, but I know how to prepare for the country!

So are you a city mouse or a country mouse?  I'd love to know.  

Part Duex of our day in the country to come!

  1. I love that picture of you leaning against the barn and those shoes are great! I think I'm a city girl although I love sporadic trips into the country too!

  2. best wedges ever!!!!! You look great girl!

  3. Great photos! I love old barns, but I am definitely a city mouse too! :) I was actually just thinking about those shoes... I always liked them and was hoping you wore them. They look FAB with this outfit!

  4. How on earth did I miss those shoes last year! They're GORGEOUS. So fun against the white and chambray.

  5. Great outfit! I love everything about it. The perfect chambray shirt (seriously), white pants and colorful accessories. Right up my alley :-)

  6. Wow, THREE babysitters! That's unheard of and amazing for a weekend with the guy away!

    I am a definitely a city mouse. Love the country for the relaxation, but need the city for the people!

  7. v cute! i love the length of the pants. just perfect! xoxo jillian:: cornflake dreams

  8. Great outfit and I LOVE those shoes! I think I am a little of both city and country. Just depends on how city and how country we are talking ;)

  9. I alway wondered about these barn photoshoots. I have plenty of barns in my area, which is weirdly a city/country hybrid, but I would feel a little weird pulling over and taking pics in front of them. Like, would the owner see me and yell? Or do I need to find abandoned ones? HALP! In the meantime, I'm in love with that shirt. You look super cute. And your hair looks really healthy! Yay you!

  10. adorable pictures!! i have the same shoes :)
