After a great week in Texas, I came home to California and couldn’t get this itch out of my system to wear my cowboy boots, everywhere! Now, as a native Texan I know you can wear cowboy boots with a variety of looks for a casual and southwestern sense of style. Even though Kayla is what we Texans call a Yankee, she has some very cute western inspired pieces for her own pair of boots! So today, I want to share with you 4 ways I LOVE to wear my cowboy boots, even in California!
Pair with boot-cut jeans, a button down oxford shirt, and a fancy belt for barrel racing or a stylish look for working the cows, visiting the county fair or showing up for Texas day at school or work…apparently that is only a Texas thing…
2) Boho Skinny
Skinny jeans are really the best thing ever. Now you can wear jeans and show off your boots! I prefer a looser to straighter fitting top with skinny jeans, and finishing the look with my southern style sterling silver James Avery Charm bracelet. I Spy a Texas charm! 😉
3) Two Steppin + dress
Remember back to the beginning of the Wear It Wednesday posts, when Kayla asked my top 5 must have pieces and I said a great A line dress? This dress is the bomb with my boots, it takes this classic cut and makes it an easy to wear and inspired southwest/texas styled look for bar hopping or square dancing with your favorite group of friends!
4) Summer Concert Festival
When in the south, it is so hot in the summers I can’t imagine not wearing shorts. I know Daisy Duke made cut off’s famous but pairing your cut off’s with a simple tee or tank and your boots you make a preppy summer look unexpected and fun! plus now your toes won’t burn while you spend time with your best friends at the tank (what Texans call a pond).
Last but not least is wearing boots to a good ole southern wedding, like my baby sister’s 3 years ago!
