Fear less, hope more;
Whine less, breathe more;
Talk less, say more;
Hate less, love more;
And all good things are yours.
I'm always taking girly pieces and trying to toughen them up--
make them a little more downtown...
although I'm not really sure why.
If you saw my community from the sky,
all you'd see is a patchwork of corn fields and square country miles.
Downtown is practically irrelevant where I live,
maybe that's why I'm always trying to
incorporate a bit of sparkle into my outfits.
I am surrounded by earth and sky...
natural surroundings and sensible mindsets.
Contrary to popular opinion,
I do sometimes try to blend
into my environment...
but the challenge is always how to wear
neutrals without the effect being dowdy...
how to have a bit of sparkle without going straight to glitzy.

So, I wonder...am I the only one who ever struggles with this?
Does no one else ever try to look more...this,
or push for more of that?
Are there city girls trapped in the country or
county girls scared in the city just striving
for small ways to blend into their environment
a teensy-weensy bit while maintaining
their own style aesthetic?
