Sometimes I pin an outfit because I want to add a specific piece to my wardrobe (an ex. of this in just a minute).
Sometimes I pin an outfit because when I look at it I immediately know that I have everything needed to be a big ol’ copy cat.
This was one of those times.
Black and White Striped Shirt| LOFT
Khaki cords| LOFT
Green bag| Fossi
Bracelet| LOFT, similar here
Tall Black boots| similar here (free shipping, no sales tax,
and 20% off right now with code Holiday 20!)
I had EVERYTHING.
It was too easy.
Okay…so I wanted to share an example of an outfit I pinned, simply because it made me want to buy a certain piece of clothing to add to my closet. It also made me want to be this girl’s friend.
Even though I could probably be her mother.
Shut it Shay.
made me want to buy…
ooh. la. la.
Them’s some pretty boots.
I thought THESE were a nice option too (for less $$)!
Let’s break it down.
1) I live in Texas.
2) My husband’s family has a ranch house that we go to all the time.
3) I don’t just want some cowboy boots,
I NEED them.
4) I should be ashamed of myself for not having a pair.
I should probably remedy that.
And just in case you need to finish (or start!) your Christmas shopping…
I’ve got your back.
The 8th day of my Christmas series is tomorrow,
but the first 7 days follow!

Bam. I couldn't have said it better myself. You freaking nailed that look! Ok…I said it a little better. Next time, title the post "I freaking nailed this look".
Mrs. Crazy says
Hahaha….. could not!! Thanks for starting my morning with a laugh!! Btw… you really did nail that look!
I love the title of your blog!! I am impressed! I definitely think that you need cowboy boots, and the fact that you found a less expensive version of the ones you really wanted, even better!
I found you through, "Oh, How Pinteresting" 🙂
Sarah Tucker says
Love both outfits!! Boots are a MUST in Texas!!
Alison @ Get Your Pretty On says
Yep, you should get some cowboy boots. You totally have justification. I'm a Texas transplant so I don't know if I could ever pull it off without getting laughed out of the state. 🙂
Love the outfit! I actually have that same black and white striped (and dotted) top from LOFT, but haven't worn it yet! I couldn't quite figure out what to pair it with because it didn't seem dressy enough for work, but too dressy for regular jeans. Now I know what to wear it with! Thanks!

Can I just say, I love love love your blog. It's so good to see someone that can actually recreate the looks from Pinterest without looking like they are trying to hard! You make the most chic look look like it is for everyday wear and makes me more confident that I can recreate pins too! I love it!
Stopping by from the link up! Happy Wednesday!
