Howdy ladies and gents and welcome back to another of our Wednesday fashion posts. Halloween usually throws me for a loop. I most often fail to buy bargain candy early on and end up buying overpriced bags several hours before the trick or treaters start ringing my doorbell. My kids costumes arrive via cardboard Amazon boxes just a day or two before. It’s a last minute, wing-it, type of situation.
Throw in the need to find a costume for me and I’m in for it. Several years ago Marc and I did attend a party as hippies, but the flowered-covered bell-sleeved shirts and plastic peace necklaces of those outfits were swallowed up by our family costume box long ago.
Long way of saying that when an invite came for a Halloween ball this year, I felt the way I do most days: overwhelmed.
With a freshly purchased pair of Honcho cowboy boots in his closet from our recent trip out to New Mexico to see my Aunt and Uncle, Marc wanted to go as a cowboy and when I thought about it, we already had a couple of key Western cowboy items. I also had my own favorite boots from Honcho. And we each had a bonafide cowboy hat, mine a gift from Aunt Simone and Marc’s an original silk-lined Stetson from a work trip to Texas. My best bet was for me to become a Western cowgirl and just run with the whole theme as best I could. I took the plunge.
After googling cute cowgirl and cowboy outfits, here’s what I found to complete the picture:
Here I am with the items on getting ready for our dance party.I took the time to dig out an old pair of dangly turquoise earrings and to braid my hair in one loose braid and voila, we were off.
We danced for hours and felt comfortable because we had such great footwear on. That really is the beauty of cowboy boots. The more you wear them, the more they become a part of you, molded to your own foot. I simply adore them!
Plus who can turn down a night as the date of Billy Bob Thornton — ha ha. Just kidding honey!
All in all, a pretty fun Halloween! Thanks for reading and check back in next week for another fashion post!
