Cowgirl




All remixed except sweater
Sweater: Banana Republic
Scarf: Target
Jeans: Banana Republic
Belt: Aeropostale - thrifted
Booties: Aldo
Bracelet: Banana Republic
Earrings: Turkey

I'm still slacking with BBCA, y'all. I promise that I will be wearing pink tomorrow, though. Promise.


Sal of Already Pretty mentioned fairly recently that in the fall her "alterego" switches from cowgirl to rocker. I think I pick up the cowgirl vibe in the fall. I mean, really. Have y'all seen the number of outfits I've built around denim and cowboy boots and jauntily tied scarves?


I feel like I went all out today with these jeans, the scarf, my booties, and that massive belt buckle. Also, this was my second outfit of the day. I originally got dressed to volunteer in something that was NOT cowgirly AT ALL but then there was no parking. And I drove around blocks and blocks for forty-five minutes and came home to run errands instead. Errands called for a more casual look, and apparently casual and Western go together in my head.


I'm digging the simplicity of the overall look and the interest of the blue and tan scarf with the black sweater. Isn't that breaking some kind of fashion rule?


Also, I managed to wear my booties again. My original plan was to roll up my pant legs a bit a la J Crew, but it didn't work with these jeans, so I just left it alone. I think it turned out okay, but I want to try that rolled up jeans look with the booties eventually.

  4. Thanks y'all.
    @ Shey: Thanks so much! I always feel self conscious in pants/jeans. Good to know it's working.

    @ Liz: Yay for the swap! Hope it works out for you!

    @ rlutz: I feel like I am constantly pulling this scarf out for that very reason. It's so old, too!

    @ Stylishly Petite: Me too! I just can't figure out how to wear them in a way that doesn't shorten my legs.... I'll figure it out.
