What's so appealing about the South, you ask? The landscape, for one. I love the shabby chic style of some country homes. I also admire Southern Belles. The way they never leave the house without getting done up. The way they can keep a smile on their faces no matter what. The way they can say incredibly catty things with a southern drawl and make it sound completely non-offensive.
I came to Chicago to experience big city life, and here I am fantasizing about a nice country cottage in the middle of nowhere. Silly, isn't it? I don't know how long this fantasy will last, but for now I'm content to imagine my future as a Southern Belle. Now I know - Southern Belles are born, not made. But a girl can dream, right?
Here are some tidbits I came across in my obsession with all things Southern this week.
