Gone Country

Hey y’all! In honor of the 49th Annual Country Music Awards on November 4, I’m channeling my inner cowgirl. Despite my Midwestern roots I have a loud + proud love of country music and everything down home, from mint juleps to major fringe. Still working on the big-hair part (this teasing tutorial helped) but that’s not stopping me from embracing the good life. I’ve teamed up with Colgate® Optic White® (best. toothpaste. ever.) on a Pinterest board to share my country-inspired fashion + beauty favorites. Here’s a sneak-peek:

Would you believe I nabbed this outfit at Walmart for under $100?! Bring on fall!

As for music festival approved beauty, I’m keeping it all-American with dewy skin (always), red lips, a subtle, bronzed smokey eye (country girls are sweet, after all), and pearly whites. That’s Colgate® Optic White® Platinum Express White toothpaste from in my bag—a breakthrough formula that gives you whiter teeth in just three days, with best results after four weeks, just by brushing.
