Rural Charm in the Country

Yesterday was the high for the year.  A whopping 72 degrees and sunny and though it wasn’t officially spring, I welcomed the warm weather whole heartedly by wearing a floral skirt and tank top.  Nothing is sprouting yet, but it’s easy to carry that enthusiasm for the coming verdure into Second Life and find a place that is already teeming with life.

The outfit for today is inspired by the country, particularly country music.  I don’t listen to popular country; I appreciate more folk country and bluegrass.  I pictured what a new, up-and-coming country star with a deep lilt and indie charm would look like and wear.  She would embrace modernity, but love traditional pieces from both her mother’s and father’s closets.

What you’ll find in the country:

:GP: Petal [Light] Winter-Cashmere 1 [for that sweet looking yet beautiful complexion]

fri. – Jasmine – Anxious Blond [because you go blonde for country]

*JC* STEAM PUNK necklace [rustic charm that goes well with the patched jean skirt]

Armidi – Sheer Ribbed Tank Top – Blue 1 [I love that the bright blue sets off the gray of the vest and brings out the blue in the skirt]

fri. – Halter Vest (Gray) –  Jacket [that traditional piece that I wanted to dress up the otherwise very casual ensemble]

*League Frayed in Blue (skirt) [something eclectic and interesting that imbues that spirit that lies in the country that says that everything old and worn can be kept and remembered in something new]

Happy Thanksgiving!

Let the seasonal tradition of overeating begin!  It’s actually pretty warm here, with this turkey day being the coldest this week, and I am waiting for the chance to bundle up and feel the cold chap my cheeks.  But like most things, Second Life can provide us with the platform to live our fantasies.  This time I took a look at the Winterfest showcase and I found Angel Woods.

 

This little gem is nestled amongst the bustle of the mainland and provides a very intimate scenery.  Plenty of nooks and crannies for peaceful reflection or for couples.  With the snow gently falling, I thought it was the perfect time to experience some new, wonderful designs by SL’s hottest designers.

What I use to keep warm:

:GP: Petal Frex [Light] Winter-Sniffles 1 (the new skins from Curio are so cute and are perfect for exploring the outdoors.  Just the right amount of red nose and cheeks means fun in the snow.  If you want to theme it up this season, winter skins should be on your Christmas list)

fri. – Cassie – Passionate Red

Zaara : Anaya cluster earrings *onyx*

*COCO*_CheckSwingCoat_Blue (I love plaid, and this new coat from Coco is just so natural looking.  It drapes beautifully and flatters the figure.  I can’t imagine leaving the house this winter without it)

*PERSONA* Dita knit blouse – white  (for the plaid coat, I thought a knit would be best for underneath.  Just so happens that I stumbled upon this sweater that I have had for just about forever.  Always important to coordinate your textures and prints.  Knits and plaids have had a centuries old love affair with each other that can’t go wrong)

*COCO*_SlimJeansBelt_Brown (it’s the little details that really tell the world that you are smart about your appearance.  In other words?  Wear belts!)

[LeLutka]-WOOL PANTS-gray

Black Lace Gloves from *{JB}* Ariadne IV
