When the cold weather hits I love breaking out my cowboy boots and experimenting with rustic inspired pieces. Cowboy boots are a fun alternative to OTK boots and “riding” boots that are everywhere right now. I remember in college whenever I was super stressed or had an exam I’d always wear my cowboy boots around campus because I felt like I could kick so much butt in them and take on anything. Also, kind of random but I’d almost always wear cowboy boots out to bars — a perfect amount of heel and no one steps on your toes 😉
The colder months are perfect for playing around with all kinds of rustic pieces. You may not be on a ranch in Montana (ha!) but, you can still dress like a rustic goddess. Here are a few of my favorite rustic combinations:
Cowboy boots can easily be worn with skinny jeans, leggings, and even tights. Of course if you want to get super authentic, you can wear boot cut jeans over the boots (not tucked in).
Rugged textures that are sure to delight: faux fur vests + jackets, leather vests + jackets, western inspired belts, shearling vests + jackets.
I really can’t believe Thanksgiving is this week. I’m so excited to see my extended family and relish in all the Thanksgiving traditions. Growing up holidays always seemed a little hectic, but now I can’t wait for all the craziness. Michael and I are road tripping North for Thanksgiving. Shadow does so well on road trips and looooves riding in the car. I’ll periodically panic and think we forgot her or something because it’s so quiet in the backseat (don’t worry yall I’d never forget her…).
I usually buy cowboy boots from this brand. Note: these are all real cowboy boots that actual equestrians use and ride in. Personally I can’t stand fake cowboy boots!
Wishing you all a beautiful Thanksgiving filled with food, laughter, and good company! If you want to follow along on our roadtrip adventure, you can find me on Instagram or Snapchat (@JassamineElaine)
