This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

Country Lovin’

June, 8, 2015

With the CMA Music Festival kicking off a summer full of fests, I’m everything country this week on my blog. Today is all about the sassy Miranda Lambert. If you think you can ride in her little red wagon, think again. And if you’re a Miranda fan, like me, then you know exactly what song I’m referring to. Unfortunately, I haven’t seen her on this week’s CMA lineup, but she’s performing all over the map. So today’s fashion post is heralding that country babe.

Country Love A

After watching Miranda’s music video for Little Red Wagon, I snooped around and discovered that styles similar to hers are in stores everywhere. Just pair denim shorts with boots and a top, and you are right in step with Miranda. I’m wearing a Polo Ralph Lauren blouse atop Rag & Bone frayed shorts.

Country Love B

And, of course, I couldn’t emulate Miranda’s fashion without wearing her red glasses. Nordstrom is bursting with them right now.

Country Love C

Since this is Meeting Men Monday, I’m sharing Miranda’s relationship insights. About her husband, Blake Shelton, she recalls, “We had instant chemistry.” It didn’t hurt that she’s not afraid to be herself. Blake found that appealing, and so did the entire world. As Miranda observed, “Being yourself, being original, being outside the box is starting to be appealing to people.”
