A Yee Haw Outfit

It's rodeo time here in the Old Pueblo.

That means no school (seriously), the world's longest non-motorized parade (read horses clip-clopping and plopping in the street) and ..... lots of overly done cowboy outfits. We're talking boots, denim-on-denim (shiver — I don't care what Jenna Lyons says, that is not a good look) and plaid button-downs with pointy pockets.

Homey don't play that.

But, I do think that Sandra Bullock in "Hope Floats" pulled off a good western look without going overboard. Side note: She also had the best movie hair ever — thick, wavy — in that flick.

Here's my "Hope Floats"-inspired imitation: Current/Elliott denim hoodie; thrifted floral dress; Forever XXI leggings; Jessica Bennett boots and Target necklaces.

This is the only way to do Western wear!

I really love the dress with the denim jacket. I didn't dress rodeo since I was out of town! Today it's so cold, I'm tempted to dress eskimo.
