This past weekend finally felt like sprint around here. Of course it quickly dipped back down into the cold zone….but I know the warm temps will be back.
An afternoon outside with friends, enjoying the sun and a live band – jean shorts and boots…of course!
These Miss Me shorts will be in heavy rotation this summer.
Several things on our new items page have that Bohemian vibe to them. I love it. It seems so summer to me. Hanging out at a summer BBQ or by the lake, it just feel a bit boho.
This Rock and Roll Cowgirl Vest can be dressed up or down. With jeans and a black tank it easily works for night…but I can also see it with a white tank and jean shorts for a day relaxing with friends.
This Anama Indian Headdress Top is on my wish list for sure. For a more modern look you can pair it with colored jeans. If you want to stay true to it’s boho vibe, throw on some cut offs and tie your hair in a messy loose bun. Either way you will look great!
Prefer your boho a bit more understated? Add these Cindy Smith beads to any outfit for a bit of summer fun.
Well hello there Spring!
Check out these great Spring boots by Anderson Bean. The one with the pink shaft is a kid’s boot and would make any girl happy! The other 2 are women’s (Sweet 16 Floral and Thundercat Floral) and perfect for Spring and Summer.
Anderson Bean is another one of our vendors who have been around for decades….150 years in fact. Their commitment to making quality boots is beautiful. In describing their boots they talk about the “channeled welt construction in the leather insole.” They also describe the “unique construction features…steel shanks for arch support and wooden pegs in the arch area.” They go on to explain that ”unlike a nail, wooden pegs enable the sole of the boot to adjust naturally to changes in temperature and moisture. As the natural leather sole expands and contracts with wear and weather, so do the pegs, therefore they do not fall out or rust like a nail.” Quality and style? I’m sold!
Have you guys been watching The Voice this season? I have been off and on but not enough to write recaps….which I miss! I loved those!! Anyway….there is a duo from Oklahoma on Blake’s team. Blake lives here, our stores are here in Oklahoma and the Swon Brothers are Okies. I think that means they will win…don’t you?

Looks to me like the shirt peaking out from under the denim jacket is pretty similar to this Rock and Roll Cowboy shirt. Don’t you agree?
So help me out guys….are the Swon Brothers who I should be cheering for…or do you have others favorites that I need to keep my eye on?
When it comes to rocking boots with a dress, I love a flowy, less structured dress. Something that has some movement to it to offset the lines of a boot. This Rock & Roll Cowgirl Peasant Dress fits the bill perfectly. It is light and airy and short enough to show off the boots (in this case Corral Boots.) I like that the dress has a defined waist – three ways in fact. The cinched waist, belt and change in pattern all break up the lines and defining your curves.
I love when we get a new line in at the store. I love it even more when it’s boots. Can I tell you how over the moon excited I was to open up a box and see these Freebird Boots!?!??!
These short boots can be worn all summer long with skirts, dresses and shorts. But don’t put them up when the cold weather approaches. They are equally amazing with leggings and jeggings.
Now I just need to decide which pair I want…first that is. I think I need both don’t you?
The may issue of People Style Watch had a great section on how to wear white jeans. They are such a versatile piece for Spring and Summer. You can pair them with heels, boots, flats and any number of tops…denim, leather, a tee or even a button down.
These Levi’s cropped leggings are great for summer. Although they are cropped, they are still long enough that you could slide boots over them and no one would know they aren’t full length.
I love the heart behind Lane Boots. Their website says, “At Lane Boots, our motto is ‘change your boots, change your life.’ Yes, we are known as a fashion forward boot company that brings unique styles and current trends to the western boot market. However, what we really are is a collection of individuals who just love boots. We know that every time you put on a pair of our boots, they will make you feel special. That is why we are here.”
What a great company. They are also dedicated to giving back to schools through Communities in Schools. We are proud to carry this great brand.
Next week our friend Raquel at Horses and Heels is helping us celebrate our 100 year anniversary with a giveaway and Lane Boots might be involved too!!! Check our FB page next week for details!
