Seeing Stars

Have you guys noticed how stars are everywhere right now? I love it. Honestly, I haven’t seen this many stars on pieces of clothing, belts, sweaters, jackets, and pants since I was traveling with my horse to various rodeos in middle school.

This skirt has tiny little metal stars on it and the jacket has large star appliques all over it. In a word, I’m OBSESSED with this jacket. I had my eye on it for weeks and then it went on sale and I jumped on it. It’s crazy how the clothes we gravitate to changes over time. Specifically like where we’re at in life, ya know? I remember in college I’d always wear outfits like this one — usually lots of denim, my cowboy boots, shearling coats. I’d strut around campus on my way to an exam or something ready to kick ass at any moment. Also, I quite possibly looked like some character out of West World who lost her way and ended up in Oxford, Ohio.

Then Michael and I got married and I was drunk in love and in a honeymoon bliss and wore lots of feminine prints and florals and everything sweet and nice. And now things are changing again and I feel like I’m almost dressing myself in armor for challenges ahead. So don’t mind me as I just deck myself out in black and denim and leather and boots.

But anyways, in a total change of convo I gotta fill you all in on a giveaway I’m hosting.
