Last week my 5 year old son had a friend over. Two boys running out of control in our home. Playing tag was the hit of the day, well, that and basketball on our Nerf hoop. I can’t tell you the number of times I heard “ouch”…but neither needed any major care, not even minor care. Those kids are tough. And I think they both need this Cinch Boy’s Tee.
I’ve wondered if girls are easier than boys…but then I remember girl’s are filled with sas!
Did y’all catch this performance of Miranda Lambert’s Baggage Claim at the 2011 CMA Awards? It’s now become her official video for Baggage Claim. Miranda always has fun outfits and I think she looks great in black…go check it out.
I love the black outfit with those pops of silver she has in her wide belt and jacket. And you know what they always say ladies…black is very slimming! This is how I’d go about putting together a black and silver outfit, Langston’s style.
So that’s how I’d do a silver and black outfit. Those boots are a MUST and you can either add a silver belt like Miranda or a big chunky necklace, or bracelet or like we’ve selected a big ring. In the words of Miranda Lambert’s Baggage Claim, come and get it!
Let us know if you have a favorite outfit you want us to recreate!!
Ok folks, no new music this week, but there’s definitely some new stuff next week and by some BIG NAMES *cough* TIM MCGRAW *cough*. Speaking of BIG NAMES, I have a little treat for you today. If you don’t have a collection of George Strait albums or are trying to figure out where to start, this album is IT. Best of George Strait features every single George Strait song you should familiarize yourself with. However, this album does only have 11 of his 600+ songs you can find on iTunes. So in addition to Best of George Strait, these are a few more that I’d download individually: Run, Carrying Your Love With Me, You Look So Good in Love, and my all time favorite George Strait song EVER Marina Del Rey.
What are y’all listening to right now? What are your favorite albums to listen to over and over again?
I’m definitely looking forward to next week’s new releases!!

I thought it would be nice to start out the new year with a great start…something inspiring! Dierks Bentley has just that song/video. And his style is something any guy can achieve. It’s a super casual look with some basic pieces you all need to have in your closet. Check out the video:
Inspiring, yes? Kinda tugs on the heart strings, yes? Dierks has that everyday casual look DOWN and he looks GOOD! He’s just got jeans, a tee, a jean jacket (a MUST HAVE) and boots. He’s also got those curls in his hair that are quite cute if I do say so myself. Ok, back to the clothes! Here’s how I’d do it Langston’s style:
I love it when a boot looks worn in. When on day one it already looks like your favorite boot that you have been wearing for ages. It gives that classic, not trying to hard kind of look.
This distressed boot by Stetson totally fits the bill. This boot gives off that classic, cool feel. The tough guy who tears up when his dog dies type feel. I like it paired with jeans, a plain tee and a button down worn open. Sleeves rolled up would complete the look for me.
There will be lots of new albums this month but until then, I have a couple of singles that have been released that you definitely need to be aware of.
First up, my man Tim McGraw released “Better Than I Used to Be“. Let’s first just take a look at that picture above. Sigh. He’s still got it, am I right? Ok, now, on to the music…this song y’all totally reminds me of his early days. It’s definitely traditional country that sounds sort of George Strait-ish. Definitely get this one in your rotation.
Next up, Taylor Swift released a new single, “Safe & Sound” with The Civil Wars from the upcoming soundtrack to The Hunger Games. This song is a little bit of a different sound from the Taylor Swift you are used to. The iTunes summary describes it as Appalachian folk, and I think after listening to it, I totally agree. It’s a departure from Taylor’s norm but I am definitely loving it.
