City Girl or Country Girl (Feat. Dresslily)

I've never thought I was particularly a "city girl" but I've never thought I would be a "country girl" either. Perhaps I've got too much city in me to be country, and perhaps country is too quiet for me to give up the city. If you've been following this blog for a while, you'd know I moved from the busy city of Cebu to starting a new life in Adelaide. This time, I moved 2 hours away from Adelaide, to a tiny town called Moonta for a work opportunity. I'm still in the process of adjusting to country life.

What I Love About The City (and why I drive back every chance I get):
- Pizza any day, any time.
- Dumplings.
- Milk tea.
- Why is this list about food now? Because I love how there is a variety of different cuisines available.
- Easy access to all kinds of services, with lots of options.
- The easy transport options - train, bus, taxi, walk.
- The fashion! And being able to wear what I want without people staring at me.
- The cultural diversity.
- The night lights. It is literally dark in the country at night.

Perhaps this outfit is a hybrid between country and city because I am personally feeling midway. I also love the print and cutout shoulders on this Dresslily top (HERE), and the unique slit in the middle of this denim skirt (HERE). I was also pleasantly surprised at how sturdy this wide brim fedora hat was which is only $8.06 (HERE).

Don't you just love how there are so many awesome and affordable choices when it comes to fashion these days? And whether you're in the country or in the city, online shopping gets your items delivered to your doorstep!

What I Love About The Country (and why it's not so bad as long as I've got my husband with me):
- Peace and quiet.
- Fresh air.
- Wide open space. Feel free to go jogging anywhere.
- No traffic! Literally.
- Most things are cheap and affordable.
- The rent is only a third of what it would be in the city.
- And because there's not all that much to do, you get to save save save.
- The people are so nice and helpful.
- Fishing and crabbing anyone? Walk or drive to the jetty and easily get free squid and crabs during a good catch day!
And here's an "oops" photo just because!
Are you a city girl or a country girl? What do you love about the city/country?

  2. Congrats on the new job and kudos for leaving the City! I so understand the culture adjustment. Oh! My older sis lives in Melbourne, btw. She's a Training Manager there, I am not certain if she is ready to say goodbye to the City life. LOL. I love your unique fashion sense. You look amazing! xoxo.

  15. I am a city girl, but I am very lucky to live in a city that is big, but still feels small as in much space and greenery.

  23. Too cool of a country girl! I love the city too and it of course has to be mainly about food!!
    I love the look!

  24. Looking so dreamy and gorgeous Jeanne! I'm totally crushing on your stylish, stunning vibes. The blouse and skirt go so perfectly together and I'm loving the whole mid-way vibe of your outfit, a gorgeous blend of city and country for sure <3

    I'm not a city girl at all, I like the country but at the same time I like a bit more buzz too. I guess I'm a country, small city kinda girl haha ;) I love the fresh air of the countryside and the peace and quiet.

  27. Love your skirt so much:)
    Enjoy living away from the city. Although the city is very exciting is so great to be able to have a quiet rest some times:)

  28. I was born at the province but live in the city my whole life. I rarely visit the hometown but everytime I do it makes me think how I love the slow pace of life in the province and the simple and healthy life there.

  29. An insightful post :) I like a mixture of both the countryside and the city, my heart is strung more so towards rural life because I like the peacefulness of it.

    Think there are plus sides to everything and if you can enjoy the best of both then you're on to a winner :)

  30. I was born and raised in a city but I've moved to the country as a grown up, I'm definitely a country girl :)

  32. That is a very difficult question! I've never lived outside the city (I lived in Baguio and mostly in Manila). But I always enjoy the quiet days in the province where there is no electricity at night, no water sometimes and the friendliness of the people. I guess I will always live in the city because there is work in the city but escapes to the province from time to time will always be a good idea. :)

  33. I love the top so much.. so pretty! I am completely in love with your blog, keep up the wonderful work pretty gal! x

  34. Absolutely love this outfit! Super lovely textures and colours. I can see why you enjoy heading back, always great to be in a place where you're not judged by what you're wearing <3

  35. That is such a cool outfit... It's almost summer there, right? We're going into winter here, and I hate it :D I have to say I'm a little bit of both... I love the city, because of all the options you have, and it's never boring. But sometimes I just need some peace and quiet... That's why I love that I'm at uni in the city, but go back home to the country almost every weekend... I get a little bit of both on a weekly basis :) Great post xx


  36. I like to see you with this different look. Remind me the country side! xx

  39. Congrats on your new job, dear :) I really like your outfit, especially the skirt is amazing :)

  40. Hmmm, I would like to live in the city but there are times I just want to recluse in the country to re-invigorate. I enjoyed reading your post and your outfit is on point.

  41. So nice blouse! Kisses

  42. You look wonderful in this styling, I love your blouse :-)

  43. I'm loving your outfit! I think both city and country have their own advantages :D

  49. Lovely skirt! I think I'm more of a city girl myself but it's so peaceful sometimes in the country...always a nice escape!


  50. It is nice living in Australia. Got lots of friends there. Me, I don't know. I think I would love to stay in Canada or the Netherlands if I am not going to settle in the Philippines. :P

    Anyways, I followed you through Goggle Connect :) I hope you'll do the same. Let's support each other :D


  51. I think I'm a little bit of both? Suburbs I guess? I love being in the city because of the restlessness and the easy access to everything. Like all the food you mentioned! But the quite togetherness of the countryside is also very appealing as well. I've never lived in the country before though so I don't know if it's just this romanticized allure that interests me or not. Regardless, I love your top! The cutouts are definitely my favorite and I love the print on the front too. It's very boho and looks really good with the whole outfit
