If all goes well…

An all NEW UrbanCountryStyle coming soon

IF all goes well, there will be a brand NEW UrbanCountryStyle within the next day or so. There may be a time period when this site goes blank, until the name servers resolve to the new site (I feel so technically inclined just uttering that line…lol)…until then, keep your fingers crossed that my limited technical abilities have managed to accomplish what has looked impossible to me over the past few months, which is how long the  redesign has been underway!

So hang on Y’all…we’re in for a bit of a wild ride while I work out the inevitable bugs and bumps! Wish me luck as I attempt to do this myself 😉




Cornucopia Casual

I’m up in Whistler without my good camera to pull off a photo shoot. Normally, I’d just Instagram  (@urbancountrystyle) these moments but I feel like I’ve been cheating on my lil ol’ blog lately, so if you forgive me the iPhone shots I’ll share my Whistler Cornucopia outfit of the day with y’all! (If you’ve never been, Cornucopia is a wine-food-and sometimes vodka 😉 tasting extravaganza about town that runs all this weekend). If you’ve never been and you’re close by…it’s not to be missed. If you’re not, next year’s event should be earmarked on your calendar!

Have a great day Y’all!

Langstons’ Dingo Boot Giveaway Look of the Day-Keepin’ it Simple

Jeans (my closet, similar here); Belt (Ariat from Langstons); Boots (Dingo from Langstons); Jacket-Ralph Lauren Denim and Supply; Bag-TOTeM

What a whirlwind week it has been. We’ve been in London for 2 days, Edinburgh for 3, then 4 nights over on Loch Lomond that included day trips around the Cowal Peninsula to Tighnabruich, Dunoon, and Loch Fyne Oyster Bar. The weather has ranged from glorious hints of sun along with fresh snow at the top of Rest and Be Thankful pass (so named because in the 1880s passengers in 2nd and 3rd class had to get out of the coaches and push the 1st class passengers up the hill) to pouring rain and wind. Throughout it all, cold is the norm and bundling up is necessary.

So, with the challenging weather and landscape this outfit has been a variation of my mainstay look for this part of the country (which is thankfully very casual). And these sweet little Dingo boots have been a God send as I’m getting tired of tall boots with jeans on EVERY woman I see  (along with denim shorts and black tights with ballet flats…they are EVERYWHERE) which is always my cue to move on with any new purchases.

Now don’t get me wrong, I have tall boots with me too, but I prefer to wear them with a sweater dress and textured tights. So if you’re wanting to add new boots to your wardrobe, my money is on short boots this year (and an impromptu SuzieSurvey in London tells me THEY are the new direction for boots).

Remember, if you want to WIN A PAIR OF DINGO BOOTS FROM LANGSTONS.COM, scroll down to the previous post and enter using one of the multitude of ways! You still have two more days 🙂 and if you want 15% off your purchases at Langstons until the 21st use the code urbancountry !
