Happy Presidents’ Day and Happy Big Sale Day!   Since this is a transitional  time of year for seasons, it’s a good time to find great deals on pricey winter items like coats and boots and to start picking out a few new spring finds.  I also love to use this sale day to stock up on any basics I need like jeans and solid tees.

Hello Loves! For all my Houston readers, we are officially one week away from the rodeo cookoff which means oh so close to Rodeo Season ya’ll!  A couple weeks ago, I shared a rodeo outfit idea without cowboy boots, and this week I’m going full cowgirl with a rodeo outfit with cowboy boots.

This western wear inspired outfit would work better for the last half of the rodeo when the weather warms up a bit.  I finally added a denim skirt to my closet this year!  I think the last one I owned was in college.  I have become such a skirt person, so a frayed hem denim skirt was something I wanted to add for the spring and summer.  I love the natural faded look of this one and the length.  It’s the perfect start to building the perfect rodeo outfit.

I added on this western romance crop top to add a little boho and western flair to the look.  My hair is covering the beautiful details on the shoulders of this top, oops!  The sheer top portion also features a pretty floral design.  I have another flowy crop top from this brand and wore it so much last summer.  Even though, it’s not quite the weather yet, I knew I wanted to add this to my wardrobe stat!  It will also be cute with skinny jeans and shorts.

I pretty much only wear cowboy boots to the rodeo, so I only own this one pair which are a few years old.  I found a few similar pairs to mine though in the links section.  Mine are the Bed Stu brand, and I couldn’t really find any western boots by them right now.  When I’m wanting to wear jeans, I always tuck my skinny jeans into them. A flowy top like this one would be perfect for this combo, or you can add a long sleeve plaid if the weather is still cool.

If you aren’t heading to a rodeo soon, this outfit with sandals will be perfect for you during the end of spring or summer months!  I hope you guys have a fabulous weekend!  I have a nice 3 day weekend headed my way, and I cannot wait!  Check back Monday because I’m going to put together a list of Presidents’ Day Sales for you.  It’s a good time to buy both end of winter clearance and stock up on spring basics.  Be sure to come by and check it out!

Currently Coveting: Statement Earrings

Well I couldn’t start sharing Spring outfit inspiration and leave out all the pretty Spring statement earrings that are hitting stores!  Spring is my favorite season for statement earrings. I love the bright and bold colors, the simple styles, the sparkle.  Oh so many good statement earrings come out in the spring!

I rounded up some of my favorites this season trying to hit a variety of shapes, styles, sizes, prices, and colors.  I love pairing the bold colors with my more lighter or neutral outfits.  The white, brown, and gold are perfect add ons to the days you print mix or wear lots of color to add balance to your outfit.  Don’t be afraid to mix colors too.  The bold pink would be cute with a green dress, the bright yellow would pair perfectly with shades of blue, and turquoise earrings would be perfect with pink or red.

Which pair do you have your eye on for Spring?

Hello Hello!  I know some of you are still toughing it out with snow days and winter weather, but we are starting to get small tastes of Spring over here.  I wanted to share a few of my early spring wardrobe essentials with ya’ll.  I break Spring into two parts. Early Spring for when we still have cool mornings and evenings with warm afternoons, and late spring when we start experiencing more heat in the afternoon with warm mornings and afternoons.

I love lightweight long sleeve tops and thin sweaters for early spring.  You can easily push the sleeves up in the warmer part of the day, and this top will help keep you warm on a cool morning.  I like to pick them up in a few fun colors to start easing pretty pastels and bright shades back into my wardrobe.  This top has a loose slightly oversized fit which is so comfy and perfect to pair with both skinny jeans and shorts.

Skinny jeans are really a year round essential for me.  I wear my darker blue and black jeans the most during winter, and with the onset of spring I like to pull out my white and gray pairs along with my distressed and lighter blues.  I could not resist pairing this pretty lavender color with my gray jeans.

A cute pair of open toed sandals are a must for spring!  It’s nice to start breaking a way from boots and booties with a cute heeled sandal or wedge.  I love this floral mule pair I picked up last year. They add such a fun detail to a casual outfit.

What are some of your early spring wardrobe essentials?

Also, I did want to mention that the company that makes my bag, Henri Bendel, officially went out of business and so this purse is no longer available for purchase.  I love the design and quality of their bags, and I’m so bummed they are no longer around.
