Let's talk cowgirl boots for a minute, shall we? I used to think that they were only for girls who lived on a farm, rode horses and knew how to wrangle things. I think we all know by now that I don't fit that description!
But boots have really taken on new style life in the last few years. You don't have to live on a farm to pull off some fun looks! A simple pair of cowgirl boots can be worn with shorts or jeans for a more casual look or they can be paired with a dress and some statement pieces to give a more polished look. In fact, I'm of the opinion that you can wear them for just about any occasion.
To prove it, I pulled out my Ariat Heritage Western X Toe Boots and got to work. With the help of a simple red dress I scored from H&M, I was able to accessorize and add simple pieces to create three totally different looks.
Date Night- I kept things simple here, because the dress with boots combo is both fun and flirty and doesn't require extra dolling up. The hubs and I usually go to dinner for date nights, but he said with this outfit on, he'd want to take me dancing too! ;)
Casual Fridays- Breaking free from the typical office heels, this outfit would be perfect for a dress down day at work. The blazer from Banana Republic, a pretty necklace from Hello Cheeseburger and a top knot bun give this a really chic and stylish flair.
Wild Card- I felt that look number three was perfect for church or other occasions which required a little more conservatism. The hubs argued however, that this outfit would be a good every day look. Throw on a cardigan like the J Crew one from above and you're set. It's perfect for most occasions, even if you only end up grocery shopping and hitting up the PTA meeting! I decided to throw it in as a wild card, because while I don't always feel like dressing up every day, I do sometimes like to have a little more pizzazz and this is just the right amount.
What look do you prefer best? I'd love to hear how you dress up your boots!
