off the shoulder sweater with skinny jeans, denim jacket and fringe cowboy boots

cowgirl boots outfit
I'm sometimes slow to jump on the latest trend, and it might take me bit to warm up to the idea or heck I may forgo it altogether. I have admired from afar others rocking off shoulder sweaters, but it just never quite felt right for me. I was worried about my daughter pulling on it or the side of the sweater accidentally slipping a little too far. I came across the cozy grey number at TJMaxx, and decided to give it a go...but in a way that works for me by wearing a half cami or bralette. My favorite place to get bralettes is Walmart. They have lots of color options and a variety of fabrics. You could say my denim jacket is thrifted, but it was a golden discover found at my parents house. A perfectly worn in Levi's jacket from the early 90s!! Find a similar style here and here. This whole look really came together with the addition of fringe cowgirl boots and a wool, wide brim fedora.  Cowgirl vibes with a touch of boho and vintage feels making this outfit modern and right now.
What fall trend are you loving?

hunter rain boots outfit with utility jacket, vest, and ball-cap

hunter rain boots outfit with utility jacket, vest, and ball-cap
Lot of layers are my favorite way to dress!! It's just so fun to add different textures and dimensions that make a outfit come together! Outerwear is such a import part of a women's closet, and yet I often feel like its overlooked or forgotten about. BUT, a lot of the time (especially in the midwest) the outerwear you have on will be the entirety of the outfit others see. It's really important! A utility is a must have because its perfect for those in-between seasons, and is a classic style that carries through the trends. Layering a vest under a jacket not only adds warmth, but also really ups the style points of a outfit! I LOVE the color blue (big surprise if you've been here awhile) so, I layered up this look with all different shades of blue. Honestly though a tonal outfit is an easy and chic way to ensure all the different elements of an look just happens to be my jam!! 
What's your go to layered look?

borrowed from the boys - pearl snap and leggings with cowboy boots outfit

madewell bag

This outfit has western vibes, is comfy, and oh, so wearable!! Cowboy boots just shouldn't be saved for that concert or once a year wear!! Pair them with some leggings, and rock them on the regular!! I grabbed the old pearl snap from my parents house as it was a forgotten shirt of my dad's and this outfit was born! I'm not sure why I hadn't thought to look in the guys section for a pearl snap before!! I have been on the hunt for one like this, but always came up short when I searched the women's section. I really dig the oversized look and thats its extra long in the back! I paired it with a ringer tee, black leggings, and vintage (old, perfectly worn in) cowboy boots. My favorite everyday bag and a hat. 
What's your favorite leggings outfit made up of?

long cardi outfit with skinny jeans and fringe booties

toddler girl cowgirl boots outfit
Duster length or super long cardis are making me so excited for cooler weather!! A long cardigan is not only cozy, but also adds a certain amount of drama and interest to any outfit. It's one of those very versatile wardrobe pieces that not only works with leggings and jeans, but also looks great with dresses or pencil skirts. We took these shots a month or so back and I'm just now getting around to blogging them!! My daughter, Ellie is wearing a tunic top that was gifted to us by Pink Elephant Organics. It's no longer available, but their fall line is out with lot of cute items!! She was also sent a adorable dress that always gets lots compliments when she wears it. It's sometimes nice to have unique, quality pieces that didn't come from all the usually places!!

dress outfit with cowboy boots - styled 5 ways

My wardrobe is all about easy to mix and match pieces. This is especially true when I pick out more formal pieces to add to the mix such as dresses. I love a dress that is a solid color so it will easily coordinate with pretty much anything! Add pumps for more formal wear or boots or tennis shoes...or literally any shoes you'd like!, wear out for date night or to church, and everywhere in-between.  Something that you can have in your closet to pull from in a pinch and throw on the appropriate accessories for the occasion to be out the door!! THIS blue dress checks all of those boxes and more! Style factors include the midi length which is currently trending yet always classy and timeless! POCKETS!! Why doesn't every dress come with pockets?! I chose the dark blue, but its also available is a gorgeous peachy rose color. You'll find several outfit ideas below all with cowboy boots, but if booties or pumps are more your thing they will look fab as well!!

navy dress outfit
I grabbed this SCARF on Amazon not expecting too much, but was pleasantly surprised by the quality! I love the vintage feel and that the little tassels go all the way around the edge. The BELT was my beloved Aunt's that passed away from cancer many years ago. It's very special to me.

When I saw this SHIRT I knew it had to be mine!! What drew me in was the tonal embroidery detail and the tiniest bit of distressing...well, and it was on sale!! I think this would look cute with white sneakers and a ball cap, too!! Sadly its sold out. I did link it incase a store near you might still have it. See below for some super cute and affordable alternatives.

For a more sophisticated feel add a trench. Always. End of Story. I really like this TRENCH because it is available in TALL sizing and petite, but also really like THIS ONE because its water resistant and comes with a hood.

A denim vest, dress, and cowboy boots gives me all the retro feels. I really like the contrast of the lighter wash of the vest against the darker blue of the dress. I scored this Ralph Lauren vest off ThredUp so linking some other options below.

This may be my favorite look of them all! I do love a blazer outfit and have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to the topic! A blazer is always a good add to any outfit! Just like the trench coat, a blazer adds a touch of class and chicness to any outfit! This blazer was another ThredUp score. Anytime I find myself in front of a clearance rack I look for blazers on the off chance there's one in my size. I've found some great deals this way, and you really can't go wrong with adding another blazer to your closet.
