Follow Your Arrow

Top: Francesca's, Trousers: H&M, Heels: Target, Necklace: Calico

I don't know how many of you listen to country music, but, man oh man, is it my life. I try to listen to a little bit of everything but country music will always have such a strong place in my heart. One of the newer women of country, Kacey Musgraves is my new favorite. I bought her album at Target a few weeks ago and I've been playing it on repeat. One of the songs, "Follow Your Arrow" is one of my favorites, she points out that no matter what you do, someone's always going to judge you so you might as well be whatever you want and love who you love because we only live once. You can listen to the song HERE


After living in Philadelphia for the last 2 school years I'm realizing that I could never do this permanent small town living thing. I've been so bored and the days are much too slow. At first I thought it would be nice, having a slow and relaxing summer but I'm ready to go back to Philadelphia and I have, oh, just about a month and a half to go. Plus, having people stare at my feet (thanks to the heels) no matter where I go around here is starting to get old. And sure, my feelings were hurt when an older lady asked me if I felt silly where my "big shoes" just to grocery shop in, but at least I have enough confidence in myself to keep wearing my heels for no-good reason other than I feel like it. 



Even though I have to wait a few weeks to go back to Philadelphia it feels good knowing I found a style of living that's right for me. I love using public transportation and being surrounded by tons of people. There is just too much space here in York, oh and I have to drive here, which I absolutely can't stand. Never really got into the whole driving thing. Just not for me I guess. 

Which do you prefer, rural, suburbs or the city?

  6. Cute top! I love the whole look :)

    I'm absolutely a city girl! The occasional getaway to someplace remote is great, but for long term living, it's got to be a city :)

  7. Really cute top! I love it with the orange jeans, so lovely :)
    It's so interesting to hear from someone who likes the city and dislikes small towns! I am the complete opposite of you - I can't deal with cities at all. I've always lived in the countryside but spent three years at uni in a city (in the UK), and found it really difficult. I'm now back in a tiny market town and loving it. But I think it's so interesting to hear the other side! But I definitely know what you mean about wearing heels in small towns, just wish people would accept it more!!

  8. Looking cute, Miss Chelsea! I love that top on you.

    You know, I actually do like listening to country music once in a while. I'm usually not super picky with music. My favorite country singers are the ones from ten plus so years ago, though, since that's what my dad would play in the car on long road trips. You know, Alan Jackson and Johnny Cash (okay that's more than ten years lol) and the like...

  16. I love love love Kacey Musgraves, follow your arrow is one of my favorite songs too, but her whole album is amazing. I am more of a coastal kind of girl, I like to living in a relax and spacious environment, I hate crowded places, and like you I'm not a fan of driving.

  17. I felt the same way when I went to college. Cities are definitely my thing. I never got into driving either. :) Thankfully my husband loves to! You're adorable!

  18. I love this outfit! That top is so pretty, and the pattern adds the perfect pop to your outfit.(:
    I am more of a suburbs/country kinda gal. I love the city, but in doses, and I don't really know that I could live with all the crowds and the hustle! My dream is to one day live in a country farmhouse, or even just in a home further away from the city...but still close enough that I can go to the city on weekends or whatnot!(:

  23. what a cute top! you're adorable.
    I have been living in small town PA for two years, and it's just not for me. I miss my hometown (Chicago) so much! but it looks like I'm here for a while longer, so I have to figure out how to make the most of it :)

  27. oh my goodness, Chelsea, that top is so cute. I love the arrows. You look amazing. And who the heck DOESN'T like country. I've been listening to the Band Perry's CD on replay all summer. :) If you get a sec, I'd love to hear your thoughts on my photo diary from Venice. xo

  29. Chel, I am such a huge country music fan. I was an exchange student in Pensylvannia 15 years ago, loved the country side there. My by is from PA and he introduced me to country music, so this kind of music has a special place in my heart as well :-) Just looked for Kacey on youtube and love her voice, thank you so much for introducing me to a new country singer :-)

    You look amazing in that aztec top, the detailing in the back is amazing :-)

  30. cutest little button back blouse ever!! i adore the print Chelsea, you're rockin' the entire look lades! i've never been a huge country music listener, i think it's from the era i grew up in and the boyf kinda struggles with this cos all i want to hear is 80's sounds. i think i've given him 1 too many earfuls of New Order for his own good ;)

    never mind the ladies comment, once again...this is another era talking and she just hasn't experienced fashion in the same way we do now. you look gorgeous, there's no doubting that! we just moved from the city to the burbs recently and we're loving it! i wear heels to grocery shop too; if i saw you i'd be admiring and not yuking your yum!! ♥
