I should’ve been a cowgal and other stories ;)

Another trend that is pretty difficult to ignore this season is the All American Girl meets Cowboy story.  I have, unsurprisingly, reappraised this look multiple times in my fashion career!  The elements that you need to get the flavor of this fashion story without buying in to it big time are:  Cowboy boots, anything blue denim (not that difficult ;)), a belt with stud or conch decoration, skirt or jeans, plaid or frilly blouse.  The hat is optional, as is the horse!

In the above pics I’m wearing a patterned silk blouse from several season ago, I like these options, the white to wear with a print skirt or jeans, and the print to wear with a white skirt like mine:  here  and here and here and here or with jeans, which you already have.

The belt is pretty crucial to finish this look and will always look great with jeans, this is my fav and also the cheapest that I found doing a quick search for you here I also liked this beauty here and this one here

Moving on down… I’m wearing a summer skirt and transitioning into fall.  Here are some options if you would like to reappraise this look, again pair print skirt with plain top or vice versa, here and here and here or the look for less, here Alternatively pair any of these blouses with jeans or a denim skirt.

 

The key element of this look, and practically every other style that is hitting the shopfloor this season is the boots.  Clearly I have already invested in this trend as I’ve been wearing these Chloe boots on repeat since last summer, the same here I know, I know…but cost per wear and all that 😉  There are a lot of midcalf and long styles in the shops this year too, or you may already own a pair.  A few I like here and here and here or these ones are more reasonable here or these ones are statement boots here

If you want to go the full hog a hat is the way to go!  A couple of options here and here  Silver and turquise jewelery is also perfect for the style, a couple of ideas here and here and here

 

When the temperatures cool I will be wearing a  plaid jacket belted over this look, like these here and here and here

 

Thats all for now folks.  Thanks for stopping by, and for leaving such encouraging comments, I really appreciate your feedback.  Hugs, Sarah X

Baby Boomer speaks for itself, yes I am a woman of a certain age ;) Why Badass? I have Rock & Roll in my DNA, coupled with some Punk Attitude and a (Lovin) Spoonful of Hippie Chic. Altogether BABB ;O The blog is not intended to be age specific, or indeed age appropriate! It is more about my style philosophy. The blog is to help girls and women of all ages to become more confident in expressing who they are through the way they dress. Mine are style tips and tricks based on years of styling, and an extensive knowledge of the fashion industry. My shopping advice is suitable for those with a limited budget, those who are strapped for cash, and for the lucky ones who have cash to splash. Personally I mix it up, marrying high street with high end to achieve my unique look. I hope that you will enjoy my new blog, Sarah x
