Even Cowgirls Get the Blues

Skirt (worn as dress): Gift // Hat: Urban Outfitters, $10 // Bracelet: Forever 21, $9 // Shoes: Goodwill, $5

I have a tale to tell today. Awhile back, Fossil sent me a beautiful pair of boots from their collaboration with Justin. I loved their worn-in feeling, rustic look and intricate embroidery. But, they were a bit too big for me and sat lonely in their shoebox for some time while I procrastinated sending them back for a smaller pair.
Then, during my recent move, the unthinkable happened. The boots went missing! While ransacking box after box, it was terribly frustrating to realize that lots of old junk I wouldn't even miss was safe and sound, but this precious cargo was nowhere to be found. Ain't that just the way it goes? 


Here is what I would have worn with them -- something pretty yet rough around the edges with a sort of cowgirl-meets-hippie feel. As soon as they turn up, you'll be the first to see them in action.

Great styling of the skirt as a dress! Its layers and subtle volume is very flattering.

I'm going to be writing about this particular kind of restyling soon- mind if I link you in the near future?

Keep inspiring,
