Urban Cowgirl

"Hasn't everybody at some point or another had the fantasy of being a cowboy? A cowgirl?"







I'm so drawn to anything that looks really old and historical. Whether it's ancient art, weathered architecture, or vintage jewelry, I instantly fall in love. This old fire house is so charming! I can just picture a mini-red fire engine pulling out of it playing little hero to a small town. This is about as western as it gets in a Yankee town, as some would call it.

This is a small effort at modernizing a western look. No cowboy hat here.... The daisy print dress and leather are enough for me.

I got these awesome JC shoes at the annual LF Fifth Avenue sale and it took me a while to convince myself to buy them. Why? Because I'm also not really a cowboy boot kinda girl. The heel seemed low and I don't wear a lot of brown. However, there is something really wearable about these.. They are like a bootie and a cowboy boot combined.. I love them! I think it might be the square toe... I hate pointy toe shoes! Blah, you hear that Prada Fall? Despite your sweet little bows, I will not be lusting after you.

Are you a round toe or pointy toe shoe lover?

Those boots make me want to rush out and get some!! I love pointy and round toed shoes, but my feet are to big for pointy :(

Since I am a Texan, I love a cowboy look, but I love how you have done this look. You definitely look like an urban cowboy. I love your blog!

I've been toying with the idea of busting out the cowboy boots. You make it look fresh and adorable! I might just have to give it a try...
