You might have seen on Instagram that this past weekend, I was able to attend a local blog conference here in Kansas City called Go Blog Social. It was a Friday and Saturday event full of classes and networking with other bloggers. I’ll be sharing more about it later this week, but I really had a great time. Because I put being a mom first in my life, I don’t get many days away or opportunities like this, so I really soak it all in when I do. I LOVE the learning element of a conference. I have always been a school nerd at heart, so just taking a class again, especially about something that I am excited about, is thrilling. I loved spending time with friends, answering to no one and even just eating out!
I thrifted these boots a few weeks back and my husband was not a fan. That often happens though, so I pulled them out for the Friday of the conference where I would be gone and away from him. I LOVE the fringe on these boots and the vintage cowgirl appeal they have. Plus, I have a feeling that white ankle boots are an up-and-coming hot item and these fit that bill for me. It took some playing around with what to pair with them because I really didn’t want to look like a total cowgirl. That meant that anything aztec, southwest, or turquoise was out. Pairing them with very basic stripes, black denim, and a sweatshirt/jacket combo seemed to work well. The basics calmed down the western vibe of the boots and made for a very wearable everyday outfit.
Do you own cowgirl boots? What do you wear them with so you don’t feel like you are in costume?
