Sorry it's kind of long...
I've been thinking about this for a while, girling up my wardrobe that is, but I'm not quite sure how to do it. And by a little, I mean a LITTLE bit. Nothing drastic.
To start, I'll openly admit that I'm a tomboy all the way. I have an aggressive and assertive personality, I'm always in jeans (usually faded flare) and a t-shirt or tank top..sweatshirt in the winter. I live in a really small town. Like Home on the Prairie type small. It's a farming community and everyone does their part. I break horses for my neighbors and barrel race my horse. My family and I hunt and go to shooting ranges all the time. I love the outdoors and camping in all sorts of weather. I bale hay and pitch it. I'm not afraid of dirt or mud or anything.
However, my laid back style of dressing and refusal to wear makeup makes me look about five years younger than I am. I'm currently 18, I'll be 19 in July. I'd like to start looking my age but am not sure how to do it. I usually just wear my hair in a ponytail or down. It's fairly flat and I don't have a lot of time in the mornings before school to do anything.
I'm 5'4, slender and toned. An athletic body type...An hourglass build but I'm so lacking in fat that it's very toned. I'm not very busty, just a small C. I have blond hair and green eyes. And darker skin. I'm Caucasian, I just not pale. I get really dark in the summers and my hair bleaches out to be nearly white.
Does anyone have any styles that would look good with my body type? I'm not really into dresses/skirts. But I'd sooner wear a dress than a skirt. I also can't stand skinny jeans. So please don't suggest those. Anyone who tells me that the country look is skinny jeans and plaid is wrong. So I'm just ruling that out right now.
I'm looking for easy-to-do hair styles, makeup techniques and clothing styles and whatnot that would work for me. Links would be appreciated. Oh, and if everything could be on the cheaper side of things that'd be great too :)

Start by getting some more girlie accessories. Get a cute headband, maybe a cute purse. Try a girlie belt.
For clothing, integrate jeans with a girlie top. A button up blouse or a cute top will work with jeans or shorts, but still be comfortable. Flats are a good choice if you don't want to wear heals.
Dresses are a great way to be more girlie. I would pick something that you love and then wear a cardigan with it.
For hairstyles a really simple style is to just put your hair in a pony tail and then add a cute flower pin or headband.
You can also braid your hair after you shower and towel dry it. Then take it out and have waves :)
Just straightening your hair too looks good.
I usually just do some mascara and maybe eyeliner. If you want you could also do foundation. Buy a couple shades of eyeshadow you like for special occasions.
These are some cute outfits that I think would be a good way to integrate country with tomboy and a little girly:
