I don’t know if they’re trending or not by looking around — no one in my area is wearing them — but after a few years of letting my old cowboy boots gather dust, I’m bringing them back. Yesterday I wore my old tan ones with faded bootcut 7FAM Dojo jeans and a black floral top (pic 5-6), and today pulled out my turquoise Old Gringos that I got in Texas 8 years ago.

I guess it helps that three strangers today complimented me on these boots. A lady in Target stopped short and said “I love your skirt… AND your boots!”

They’re fun to wear. Interesting that I’m feeling them more now, when we don’t own a cattle ranch anymore, LOL!

Skirt is from Peruvian Connection, and I just had it altered to take a few inches off of the nearly-maxi length. They shortened it from the top, which actually makes the whole skirt fall a little nicer than it used to. I find this length more manageable and it works better to span the seasons— I’ll get more wear out of it now. I decided to knot one side at the hem and I still like that detail even at the shorter length.

Simple black ATM tee. Copper necklace from a local shop, copper and wood ring from Zambia. And the Aimee Kestenberg teal backpack. I should have grabbed a denim jacket — it was supposed to get a bit warmer than it’s actually gotten today, but still comfortable enough to eat lunch outside in short sleeves.
