I feel like there is a very fine line when you're trying out different styles between being a poser and being genuine. Whenever I add a little country flair to my outfits I feel like I'm a poser. I feel like all the real country folks are going to look right at me and tell me I'm just a little city girl and I need to stop stealing their look.
But, I absolutely adore country fashion. I love the boots, the lace, the denim. I'd even be willing to rock a cowboy hat under the right circumstances (i.e. a concert or rodeo, I don't think I could pull it off just walking down the street).
I think you cross the line from poser to genuine when you appreciate the culture of the style. I live in a small rural town with lots of farmers. I listen to country music all. the time. And I married a country boy, who only embraced that aspect after we were married, but still he hunts a lot. I feel like I appreciate the culture enough to be able to rock a pair of cowboy boots whenever I want.
But, I'll be honest, I am a city girl. Please don't ask me to milk a cow or feed the chickens because I wouldn't know the first thing about it.
