80s Cowgirl

I think if you just gave me a cowboy hat, I'd totally be an 80's cowgirl with my outfit today.  Oversized sweater, boots, jean skirt?  Yep, I'm a cowgirl!  Truthfully it is likely one of our last cold days as highs are going into the 60F range (!) this weekend so I thought, you know I haven't worn this sweater in awhile and I really want to again.  No use saving this for Megan and Keely's Super Stripes week coming up in a couple of weeks - cause I don't think it'll be cold enough by then!

I decided to wear this with a skirt even though it is actually really chilly outside today, because it's a different way to style this sweater.  And I love the result, even if I am a cowgirl stuck in the 80's.  It's comfy and is also giving me an excuse to wear colored tights again!

I was smart with these boots today guys - remember how I said I almost fell when I wore them another time?  Well if I was really smart I'd have gotten insoles for them, but instead, I added an extra layer of sock! It seems to be keeping my foot more stable, so I will hopefully have no problems.  I was wearing them one day after the day I nearly fell and one of my co-workers is like "what's wrong?  You're walking strangely"  because I was kind of being really over-cautious in them.  So my hope is to not appear that way today!

The sun is shining, I have coffee and it's Friday and the weekend looms ahead of me free and clear.  Could you ask for more than that?  Yipee-ty-ay-yay!  That's cowgirl for Happy Friday!

  1. You are just too cute, I always feel so happy after reading your posts. We really need to meet in person :) Looooooove those boots, I totally wanted them but didn't ever find a pair on clearance :(

    1. You are so sweet! Yes - we totally should meet in person sometime, a coffee/tea date perhaps!! <3 Have a great weekend!

  2. Haha! You're soo cute! Happy Friday to you too! That sweater looks sooooo comfy. And stripes make everything better :) Good luck walking today, and enjoy your free weekend Beth :)

  3. That is a fun sweater. I am hoping it will be too warm for heavy sweaters soon!

  4. Love that skirt. I want to see how it pairs up for springy outfits.

    Hooray for better fitting boots. I finally took the pair I wore today and cut the insole in half. The heel-cup portion didn't fit well with it, but the toe part was too big without it. Solution? Cut it in half!

  5. Even if it was a little chillier, I love how the boots look with the skirt and tights! And I'm glad you didn't slip in them again (I don't want to read a post about you having a cast as your newest fashion accessory!). :P

  6. Fun outfit Beth- I love the swingy skirt and coloured tights! I hope you have a great weekend :)


Thanks for stopping by and saying hello! It makes my day to hear from you!
