Fashion | How My Country Girl Style Came About

Denim Culottes

So, by now you must have noticed how much I love being outside and in the countryside, no? The reason behind me loving being in the countryside so much is my upbringing. I was half brought up in the city, but half in the countryside. What I mean by this is I had this perfect balance between visiting country parks, towns and pubs, as well as visiting museums, shops and different cities.

I loved (and still do) going to country parks, car boot sales, markets and charity shops, because of how beautiful the landscapes were at parks, the special and unusual finds I'd come across at car boots, markets and charity shops. I'd feel so happy about having something so unique within my possession and style that cost as little as 50p or even £2! As you can tell, some parts of my personal style can be slightly retro, vintage, boho, classy, skater girl and unusual sometimes, but I can never narrow my style completely down to a T because I love so many different styles and it can also depend on my mood that day what I wear. But. no matter what styles or trends that have came about, I have never lost my country girl style.

When I was younger, I used to love visiting places that had old churches, lakes, reservoirs, massive fields, amazing far out views or woodland areas. There was something about these places that made me feel so free...

Going back to when I was back at school, I was doing a GCSE Art course, and we traveled to Yorkshire Sculpture Park. I was with a group of girls that clearly weren't interested and went just to get out of school for a bit and miss lessons. And then there was me, actually want to explore this new place, and as it was an art trip, I actually wanted to sit and attempt to draw the sculptures around the park/ museum, but no, they didn't care about that at all. Getting to my point, I've always loved doing anything that involves the countryside. I also loved doing outdoor activities, like climbing, running, cycling etc. Rock climbing is something I really want to have a go at though! Basically, I love the great outdoors!

The countryside has always been part of my life and I will continue to love it, no matter how much other people may dislike it or how much of a city girl I can be sometimes too.

Moving over to my fashion side, I wanted to create a new outfit that was half country girl, but still wearable for the city too. So this is where the denim culotte jumpsuit comes in. I've never seen any like this before with frayed bottoms. At first when I seen them on Sammy Dress's site, I wasn't too sure about them becasue of the fit, so I checked the size guide and measured myself and they seemed to fit perfectly, and so I was right when they arrived and tried them on. I liked the unusual style of the culotte dungarees, especially with adding in the lace off the shoulder top and the wedges. I feel culottes look so much better with high shoes, rather than flats, as it gives your body so much more shape and class.
