So no, these photos weren’t taken on the set of West World. 

Although I feel like I could very easily convince you they were because of the whole denim jacket + faux fur collar + cowboy boots situation. By now you guys probably realize that I’m always looking for an excuse to wear cowboy boots. Always.

And during the fall it’s okay, ya know? Like all of us are out here pretending we’re Leonardo DiCaprio in The Revenant. But during the spring it feels harder to get away with the whole Annie Oakley thing (but I’ll still do it anyways).

If you too are out here trying to get in on the rugged western woman vibes, I have to share where I always buy my cowboy boots. Some of you know that I grew up riding and have had a horse since I was 12. Her name is Cayuse and I keep her in Ohio with my parents! Okay but back to the boots. My FAV cowboy boot brand is JUSTIN BOOTS.

There are a few things I hate in this world (weak coffee, bro talk, ill fitting jeans…) and one of them is fake cowboy boots. If you’re wanting the real deal just go to a tack shop. Or sometimes it’s called a saddle shop. Or maybe in your area it’ll be called western wear. Regardless of the name, it’s a place where equestrians go to get tack and clothing.

Changing topics now, and giving a little recap of this weekend. In short, this weekend was a DREAM. On Friday night Michael and I went to a friends house for a little Christmas party. And in true form I ended up taking 3 shots of tequila even tho I swore it was going to be a chill night with no drinks. On Saturday there was The Skinny Confidential meetup in Del Mar! The meetup was the best. We did yoga on a rooftop with a view of the ocean. There were drinks. There were little food bites. There were freebies. And there were so many girls there that were bloggers/small biz owners/influencers/social media people etc. It was awesome and a reminder of why I’m so grateful Michael got stationed in San Diego.

Okay I’m going to peace out now. Just a reminder I’m still hosting the $1000 Nordstrom gift card giveaway + you can enter below!
