I loved clothes. Y'all know I love polka dots, right? So, one of my favorite outfits was an Esprit polka dot duster coat with solid cigarette pants in red. I loved that outfit. I also had a great pair of Guess jeans that were a marbled pink and blue that I wore constantly my senior year of high school. When I finally wore them out and holes started wearing through, I wore my pink thermals under them. I love those jeans. Then there was the red plaid Esprit top and pants with the wide white belt. And the blue and white tie die outfit. I guess my point is, I was a little shy, but I did take a few fashion risks. I liked pattern and color. Oh, how I love the 80's.
Anyway, as I got older, had kids, and got fatter, my fashion style changed to comfortable mommy clothes. If I am at home, I am in shorts or yoga pants (not that I've been doing any yoga, mind you) and a tee shirt. If I am working at school, I am still in jeans, but generally in a cute top and shoes or boots. This year, I need more options. I need to get away from always wearing jeans. I need some super cute dresses. Lately, I'm like a teenager again. I WANT clothes. I miss being cute. I'm tired of being frumpy.
I've been kind of drawn to a boho cowgirl chic style the past few months. Ya know what I mean? Did you happen to watch Bachelorette Monday night? Emily had on the CUTEST dress on her date with Jef Holm. There is a video below. You only have to watch the first 30 seconds to see the dress. So cute with the boots! Love it!
Let me just say as long as we're talking Bachelorette, that I adore Jef. So cute!
Anyway, I also love this:
Okay, so on the last one I'm not completely crazy about the belt. I don't do fringe. I'm not cool enough to pull that off. Love her hair too. If mine would do that, I'd totally cut mine off.
Y'all know I love me some boots, right? I have several pairs, but no cowboy boots. I'm dying for cowboy boots. Especially some like these.
Brown and turquoise Ariat boots!!! Gorgeous! Love them! Brown and turquoise!!! Love!! If only I had $170 just lying around. Thou shalt not covet. Thou shalt not covet. Thou shalt not covet.
You get the idea, right? Ya know the BEST thing about those boots? They would fit now and if I lost a few pounds, they would still fit. Gotta love that!
So, how about you? What trend has captured your imagination lately? Are you a boho cowgirl kind of girl?
