Watch out, Daisy Duke! There’s a new girl in town and she’s ready to bring her game on. Instead of pounding the streets in short shorts, plaid tees and cowboy boots, she’s ready to make a splash in suede, ruffles and lace. To all my lovelies out there, take notes: this country look is going in STRONG!

Speaking of country, there are ways to rock this trend: either you keep it simple like Miley Cyrus or go hard for that urban rodeo vibe like Gigi Hadid. As much as I want to rock my cowboy hat and boots, I’m swapping them out for my vintage Roncelli studded suede pants and Gianvito Rossi lace boots. But to keep it looking country cutie chic, I swear by my vintage Guess jacket and ruffled lace-trim top. Tie-in the look with a quilted bag for that ultra extra touch! To quote Hannah Montana, it’s the best of both worlds!!

If going edgy ain’t for you, grab a prairie-style dress. (Preferably in a bright or pastel color like mine!) Prairie dresses may look hard to wear outside the runways and lookbooks, but please give it a chance. Generally, they tend to be long-sleeved, but feel free to roll the sleeves up. Kick it up with some boots or some white sneakers! Believe me, you will never run out of ideas with it.

Lapis - (n.) a layer Shrek once said that "onions have layers" as he was peeling one. Like an onion, I have layers. Born in Jakarta and raised in Singapore, I grew up being surrounded in a multicultural environment. Then, I moved to the States, where I lived in NYC and L.A. The creativity, hustle, bustle and vibe of those cities inspired me to become a blogger, journalist and influencer. Writing by day and living it up by night, I slay in the streets one OOTD at a time. Full-face makeup included, too. ;)
