Be Adorned

Pine Country Feed AccessoriesMany years ago I was given this one piece of advice that has carried me for years.  Very simply, “it’s all in the accessories”.  Think about it, it will change your life.  It’s Monday morning and you’ve got a meeting, so you pull the black jeans, your boots and a long sleeved grey tee with a v-neck out of the closet.  It all looks painfully like what you wore last Monday to the same meeting, except for the tee, last week it was light blue with rounded scoop neck.  Thankfully you’re not quite done.  Start with a belt, the one with the rhinestone and red coral inlay and the pounded pewter buckle.  For earrings you’ll wear the antique silver with red coral beading and for a necklace you’ll do the heavy silver chain with dangling baubles and red coral pieces.  Grab your suede fringed jacket and you’re good to go, anywhere.  When you meet your husband and his new client for dinner tonight, you’ll switch your boots for heels, the jacket for your boiled wool blazer and your necklace for the red and silver silk scarf that wraps around twice and still has room for a knot.  The jeans are great, the tee is one of your favorites, but it’s all the other stuff, the bling, the pizzazz that really gets it done, and brilliantly you have enough of that to wear something different everyday for months.


Cowboy Culture

Cowgirl BoutiqueSo you’re wondering why in a world where speed and riches are everything I would choose to be a cowboy.  Why would I choose to work until I’m blistered and bruised and covered with dirt, and what is it about me that makes me think it’s okay to wear jeans for my work clothes and jeans for my church clothes and jeans when I take my best girl to dinner.  You wanna know why a guy like me, with a Masters Degree in Business, would spend long nights in the barn during calving season, and longer days in the winter getting hay to the herd on the upper forty, and why I would rather shake hands with a man whose palms are worn by the reins of a horse than one who has a cell phone attached to his ear.  You can’t figure what makes someone like me tear up when I see a soldier salute the flag and why I think of a summer afternoon on the porch as paradise, why I wouldn’t think of leaving the house without my hat.  The answer is a simple one, but it’s the only explanation I can think of.  Truth is … I was born this way.


Wear It

When you’d rather ride a horse than get a massage, when you think of the smell of hay as fragrant, when you can look at an old barn and feel like you’re home, you know you’ve got that cowgirl thing going on, and it’s a powerful thing.  Being a cowgirl means you wear jeans because it doesn’t occur to you to wear anything else, and they better be comfortable and fit exactly right, and you wouldn’t think of wearing them without your boots that form to your foot like a glove.  They’re as good for strolling the boardwalk as they are for climbing the ladder to the loft.  You don’t wear a belt to keep your pants on, you wear it to get the look you want; it’s as important as your earrings and your hat, which by the way has to sit on your head just right to keep the sun off, the hair in place and heads turning.  The jacket you wear is denim and made just right with a little bling and a lot of style.   It’s a cowgirl thing.  So next time you’re out and about, stop in at Pine Country Feed.   You’re a cowgirl and we’ve got your stuff.


New and Better

Spring has been sprung for quite some time now, and despite the fact that the weather isn’t actually cooperating, it is time to freshen everything with a touch of creativity – your wardrobe, your breath, and certainly your abode.  Don’t panic.  This isn’t a cue to repaint and buy all new furniture, this is just an inexpensive dressing up that will make your room feel new and young again – the difference between a face lift and a new haircut.  Pillows are a great start, leather pillows bejeweled with fringe and turquoise, and a faux fur throw in stunning white, and rustic crockery for the sunflowers that grow wild on the hill outside your back door.  A couple new coffee table books and a barn wood tray, set with colored glass jars and a clay chicken, and don’t forget the bottle of jelly beans with the metal floral stopper.  String a beaded garland with metal stars over the doorway and you’ll feel like your living room is brand new – and yeah, Pine Country has everything you need.  Bold, brave, beautiful!

Do it Right

The right pair of jeans is similar in importance to the right hair cut.  They have to fit properly, and comfort is a must, and it is best if they have that little something extra that says “now that’s a pair of jeans”.  Pine Country Feed gets the whole “jeans are my life” way of thinking and they carry a fabulous selection of just right, soft as butter denim duds that will put you on the cover of “got it goin’ on” magazine.  There are only a few things in life that can actually turn your attitude around in an instant but slipping into that perfect fit, with just the right amount of flair is one of them.  Pair your jeans with a perfectly feminine, astoundingly stylish cowgirl designer top and you will be ready to bring in the herd or go out on the town, or both.  Get out to Pine Country and see if you don’t fall in love, over and over again.
