We wanted to feel like a contemporary country maiden in something that could be worn out to a party and still have us feeling rolling-in-the-cornfield summer-y. We have been feeling inspired not only by our recent milkmaid filled posts, but by hot hot weather, all-white trending, pigtails, and dutch paintings alike. We love a simple cotton and denim mixed with black patent leather Mary Janes and a crispy red apple. We love the milky white and sky blue against the rusty old shed. We love feeling like country Dutch sweetness walking on the city sidewalk, minimal makeup gives a fresh look and braids even sweeter. we kept all the accessories black for a grounded accent to contrast the girly pouf of white and light blue.
The whole loveliness of this outfit is its simplicity. White H&M dress with Levi’s Red label chambray button-down and Jeffrey Campbell Lowe cutout mary janes. A feminine and innocent enough vibe, which can really make for a simple but sexy country girl nextdoor look a la sookie stackhouse season one. It’s always fun to contradict your character a little - we tried it with some cowboy turquoise and Indian (/gwen stefani) inspired bindi and henna.
