dress outfit - olive dress and pink bow blouse with cowboy boots

I love pairing cowboy boots with outfits that most would not. I think its a fun way to be a tiny bit different, yet still look classic, stylish, and comfortable. This olive dress is so flattering, has pockets, and comes in few other colors. The blush bow blouse is a current favorite, and looks fabulous both tied up or left loose. I am really digging pairing blush with olive for a little retro yet on trend feeling for fall. You can add both to your closet for around $50 and will be something you can wear for seasons to come!!

cropped jeans outfit with white button up and mules

When I first started seeing cropped jeans in stores I didn't really get it, and thought it was just another way to get us to buy more jeans!...I wear regular length jeans "cropped" all the time. I just roll or cuff up the bottom, so, I thought no need to buy them. I was so wrong because I am loving this style!!! It is so easy to throw these on and now worry about folding the hem just right, and I have been wearing(and styling in all different ways) this pair several times a week since picking them up a couple months back. I have paired the cropped jeans here with a classic white button up, mules, statement pearl necklace, and a fringe bag. Incorporating a few right now trends, but still remaining classic and chic. Thanks for stopping by. Audra

olive green midi utility dress with mule booties and fringe bag

So in love with this dress, its great for summer and will easily transition into fall!! The olive green color is an obsession of mine as of late! The color is a neutral that goes with just about anything. This dress is so figure flattering, has pockets!, and also comes in chambray, black, and a gorgeous wine color! My choker was formally a necklace from my grandma that my daughter redesigned into a choker(...aka broke). Love paring the olive color with neutral brown shoes, and a fringe bag for simple yet chic overall look! Thanks so much for stopping by. Audra

rebecca minkoff micro moto satchel

This mini bag has been a welcomed addition, and really meets the needs of a small bag that can still hold a fair amount of stuff. Its even big enough to make a quick errand with by containing a small wallet, phone, a diaper, and wet wipes! I am in love with the print of and color! So versatile and easily wipes clean. The Micro Moto Satchel comes in the traditional black and saddle brown, but also comes in a variety of fun colors. I purchased my from Amazon and it came with a dust bag and extra tassels.  Thanks so much for stopping by. Audra

midi skirt with striped top and cowboy boots mother/daughter outfits

Me and my girl! My cup runneth over...she's is as ornery as she is cute! She enjoys wearing dresses and playing in the mud simultaneously!! Thank heaven for rain/mud boots!!...I've purchased my kiddos rain boots from Kmart the last several years because they are around 10 bucks and come in basic, solid colors. Her denim dress is a staple in her wardrobe just like it is in mine! I am wearing a white midi skirt, cowboy boots, and a striped tee with my floppy hat thats perfect for picking clover and wild flowers in our field.

high waisted jeans outfit. blazer. tie neck blouse. raw hem jeans. cowboy boots

I love 70s fashion!! 70s styles take classic pieces and adds something special to them! A bow neck blouse and flare jeans are no exception! My flare jeans are slightly cropped and have a raw hem which make them feel more modern. I have paired my look with cowboy boots which further adds to retro yet on trend vibes. I like the look of leaving the bow blouse(click here) undone or looped once with this look for a more casual feel. Thanks for stopping by. Audra

A blazer is a great way to dress up jeans, but I also love the blouse by itself as well!

4 denim cutoff shorts outfit ideas

flannel around waist
This may be my favorite of the four looks! I've have worn some version of this look all summer. Easy, yet pulled together and right on trend. A great way to get year round use of your flannel shirts! Add a panama hat and white kicks...boom, you got yourself one super cute outfit!

hat - JCPenny // earrings - Walmart // tee and shorts - Target // flannel - Old Navy // shoes - Old Navy

white button up and booties
A white button up is a closet staple(I have four!), but seriously if you don't have a classic white button up hanging in your closet you need to stop what your doing and go buy one! 
sunglasses - TJMaxx // shirt - Calvin Klein // shorts - Target // booties - Sears

striped shirt and heels
Wearing heels with shorts is a style I have always admired from afar because I was never really sure how to make it work in my uber casual world!...BUT, this is it!! Paring the heels with a loser fitting, more conservative top and panama hat dials back the sexy vibe heels and shorts can give.

hat - Walmart // striped top - Old Navy // shorts - Target // shoes - Colin Stuart

black blazer
I really love this look as well. What a fantastic way to jazz up your cutoff shorts, and make a little more sophisticated statement! This outfit is perfect for date night when the weather starts to cool! 

sunglasses - RayBan // blazer and lace cami - Banana Republic Outlet // shorts and shoes - Target

Thanks so much for stopping by! Most of my outfit pieces are old so linking similar items below. My shorts were purchased this season and might still be available in store.
