Thrift Style Thursday - Wild, Wild West

It's Thrift Style Thursday again!  Today's theme is Wild, Wild West (and side note, I can't get that Will Smith song out of my head).  I was originally thinking something gingham for today, but then I remembered this flannel I have that I thrifted for myself shortly after Oliver was born and decided it fit the theme even better thanks to the ruffles.


It has gotten cold here already, highs in the 50s - so a flannel seemed like a nice cozy choice!  I seem to wear this dress for a lot of Thrift Style Thursday looks - but I liked the idea of wearing the flannel with a long skirt and then belting it, so the dress is back again!  The dress isn't even the thrifted item, I just like it a lot!

Flannel - Thrifted, Dress as skirt - Cliche Mpls (from friend)
Belt - Don't remember, Boots - Target 


I'm really not much of a country music fan, so I don't think I'd make a very good cowgirl!  I used to go line dancing with some friends in college though and that used to be a good time.  I don't think this would be a good line dancing outfit though, I'd be tripping over my skirt!


Anyway, I like this soft approach to a country/western feel for today.  It's warm for a cold day and it suits me!  Head on over to our Thrift Style Thursday group on Facebook and see other thrifted western looks!

  4. LOL That damn song!!!!! Now I'm not going to get it out of my head! I chose line dancing as an elective in middle school. There was a bar that let under 18s in every Wednesday or something and my friends and I would go there, line dance and think we were hot stuff being 13 in a bar. LOL

  6. You know, whenever I see people wearing a belt 'tied' like that I want to try it myself, but I just can't seem to make it work somehow :-S
