Rhinestone Cowboy

Ariat Boots (c/o Langston's), Forever 21 skirt and blouse, Ray-Ban sunglasses, DIY clear studded clutch




These Ariat Cowboy boots have quickly become a wardrobe favorite of mine, making me temporarily abandon all other boots in my closet.  I love mixing and matching different looks to create a "balanced" outfit and these boots are perfect for that.  I've been pairing them with feminine pieces (such as lace and florals) as well as edgier items like this clear studded clutch.  What's your go-to item to create an interesting dynamic to an outfit?

Very cool, Val! Love the look and I love even more that you are going bare legged in February! Nor Cal has really cooled down.

I don't know of a great hydrating mask, but am due for my next dermatologist appointment. I will ask.

I'm just so obsessed with that sweet little DIY clutch, my dear. It's so fun and edgy with your boots, and I love how you've mixed it with the lace top and floral skirt! Super chic.

I agree that the boots are the perfect compliment to girly counterparts like lace and floral skirts. So, basically I love your outfit :)

Torrie said...

Very cute =).

I have a brown leather belt (wide & distressed, with cool patterns) that I got years ago at Abercrombie. Still love it for mixing up an outfit. Added it last night to an otherwise feminine outfit... the perfect touch.

Alicia@ eco friendly homemaking said...

This is such a cute outfit and I love the boots!! I can see how they just go with pretty much any type of outfit.

BlueVanilla said...

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter
and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed.

There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic
but I had to tell someone!

As it is obvious that women are craziest about those stylish products that add beauty in their personality whether it is Irish tartan, tartan handbags, cosmetics or shoes. Being a woman, if you are in a look out for a perfect purse for a formal dinner party then you must explore the range of tartan handbags with any of the exclusive tartan shop online or rather any fashion market of any country in the world.
