50TH ANNUAL ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS OOTD

Howdy Ya’ll!!!

I am so excited to share with you my presence to the 50th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards! If you live in Texas, having an interest in county music is a MUST! Today I wanted to share with you my OOTD (outfit of the day)! I have lived in Texas all of my life, but have never owned  a pair of cowboy (cowgirl in my case) boots. Can you believe that? I know, it’s shocking. Although I admire country music, I am not the true definition of a Texas cowgirl. I don’t live out in the country on a ranch, ride horses, wear wranglers with big belt buckles, or wear cowboy hats!  You get what I mean. Therefore, for today’s outfit…I wanted to put together a look that has elements of “country chic” while maintaining “my style“….

I decided to go with a see through lace dress with 3/4 sleeves. I don’t own too many clothing pieces in the color orange so it was nice adding this to my closet. I am wearing high waisted cotton shorts with a crop tank top underneath so the orange can really pop. Any tank top lower than the shorts would have been uncomfortable. While shopping for my outfit, I wanted to find a dress I can dance in and this one is IT!

I especially love the back of the dress! As per the dress code for the ACM Awards…. formal, country chic, or casual  were acceptable. The low cut area where the back is revealed is so elegant! Although this dress is not a gown, there is something about a dress when it  reveals a woman’s back that is sexy. So I will show it off!

I really wanted to wear something with fringe, but I was unsuccessful in finding something that was still ME and included fringe at the same time! Therefore, I went with an accessory such as this fringe handbag to compliment my shoes and black attire under the lace dress. I also threw on my statement necklace that has a fringed look. In essence, the more thought I put into what ‘country chic’ means to me, two things came to mind; Lace and fringe.

If you are like me, and don’t wear country attire or own a pair of boots….I hope my outfit has inspired you!  Remember, the key is to find an outfit that represents YOU and YOUR STYLE! Don’t wear buckled belts, cowboy hats, and leather boots just to fit the mold.
