31 Dec The Western Trend: Here’s my attempt without looking like a cowboy!
As the year is winding down, here I am counting my blessings…although a big part of 2018 was difficult, I was saved by having a sweet beautiful angel; she not only brought me back from the dark but she made me stronger and more resilient. Being a mother definitely changed me but in a way that makes me proud. I am still silly and wild, but I am a better version of those things. I feel like at times, I am gutsier and I am willing to take bigger risks, even more so than before, but I guess, it’s more “calculated” risks. I couldn’t care less what people think of me and this totes translates into my fashion sense as well. I feel like I have more power to play with colors, textures and patterns. I have less fear in me to combine different styles together and this is exactly what I did today. I have seen the western trend over and over on the runway and on the streets and I have always had an affinity for cowboy boots but never wanted to try them. Today, I did! And I quite enjoyed the outcome of my outfit; there’s something super je ne sais quoi about it!
And here’s my attempt at the western style without looking like a cowboy!
WHAT I WORE
SWEATER: Topshop ◊ SKIRT: Zara ◊ BOOTS: Nine West-Vintage ◊ SUNNIES: Aldo ◊ BAG: Antique (Jerusalem)
I found these vintage boots sitting on a shelf in a thrift shop…just there looking at me and begging me to take them home and so I did. They’re a little tight, but regardless, they’re pretty freaking awesome. They’re Nine West…and they’re a sample and I am guessing they never made it to production because I have seen this style in Nine West before. These boots were made early 90s and they’re still in amazing condition—they look and feel brand new.
I fell in love with this skirt the instant I saw it on the Zara website and when I saw them, I had these boots in mind…I felt like they would work so well together; it’s like so boho chic—like a mix of 70s babe and a badass—a little like Marguerite Chapman in relentless.
I know that the colors are very all over the place but looking at the end result, I feel like the outfit is pulled together nicely.So here I come 2019, full force and full of color, texture and pattern mania!
