I’m going to do a different kind of New Music post today. George Strait’s Cowboy Rides Away tour is in full swing and he came through Houston for the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo on Sunday night. Let me tell you, these tickets were hard to come by and we were in the nosebleeds but we were not going to miss his show on his last year of touring. I’ve been going to see George Strait at the rodeo since I was a kid, it just wouldn’t be the same if there were no George Strait at the Houston Rodeo. As you can imagine there are tons of people with the same thing on their mind, 80,000 people actually–setting a new attendance record! As you can imagine there was a lot of walking going on to get through the Reliant Center and Stadium and I decided to wear my Pecos Bill Turquoise boots from Langston’s for the first time. I thought it was probably nuts to wear some boots I’d never worn before when I knew I was going to be doing a lot of walking, but I went ahead and went with it and thought I’d tough it out. Tough it out I did not because they are THE MOST COMFORTABLE boots I own–just as comfortable as my trusty Luccheses. If you are looking for some CUTE AND COMFORTABLE boots you can not go wrong with these. I got many compliments on them!! In addition to my Pecos Bill boots, George Strait did not disappoint either performing lots of his oldies but goodies and new stuff also.
In addition to his performance on Sunday, George Strait also announced his upcoming 40th album will be released on May 14th and called Love is Everything. We’ll talk more about that album around that date, I can’t wait!!
Luke Bryan has a video out right now called Buzzkill. I love how casual Luke is in this video, he’s just sitting around playing guitar with a few of his band mates in casual yet sexy attire. You or your man can pull this same look off. Let’s check the video out first…
In addition to the Wrangler Booty Up Jeans that we carry in a variety of colors, we have added a few Rock and Roll Cowgirl ones to the mix.
The Wrangler Booty Up Jeans are a slim fit, low rise jean. They also feature built-in darts to lift and define your booty. These are great with boots as well as flats or sandals.
Rock and Roll Cowgirl has 2 different colored skinny jeans – one with flap pockets and one without. Both are more of a skinny/straight leg. They would still work with coots but will also look great with heels.
Let’s say one of us has a sister who is looking to buy her first pair of boots…..yes, I know. How is it possible she doesn’t own any right now?? I am sure those of you reading this all own boots, but maybe you have a sister or friend in need of this advice about buying your first pair, so here goes.
1) Are these for fashion or work? If they are really for work and you work on a ranch….this post is probably not for you and these aren’t really your first pair…but if they are, I’d look at the square toe ones that have a bit more girth in the sole. The Fatbaby line by Ariat or the Gypsy Cowgirl by Justin for example.
2) What do you want to wear them with!?!??! Are you looking to have them under bootcut jeans, over jeggings or both? What about skirts?
If you want to show off the shaft of the boot by wearing them with skirts and/or jeggings….then get boots with a cool one! These Lane Stud Rocker boots are amazing. It would be a shame to hide them under jeans. Same goes for the Ariat Paloma boots. These are screaming to be paired with a white sundress for summer.
If you want the boots for primarily under bootcut jeans, maybe consider a colored boot. These red Old Gringo boots look perfect peaking out from under jeans.
3) What colors do you normally wear? I am a huge fan of all my boots, but my medium brown ones get the most wear. I pair them with white, grey and even black tops. To me they go with everything….almost. My sister has a lot of tops that are colored with black designs and embellishments. For her I would recommend a black boot.
My personal preference lies with snip toe boots. Not too square, not to pointed. However….if I was told to pick my 1 go to women’s boot right now it would be this one, the Ariat Dandy.
It is a bit more pointed than a snip toe, but I love the shape. It is plain enough that it will go with everything, yet the detailed cut outs give it enough interest that you can show it off. I can see it in winter with big cozy sweaters and in summer with dresses. At under $200 this is a great option and one you will wear for years to come.
I’m sure by now you all have seen Carrie Underwood’s Two Black Cadillacs video that came out a couple of weeks ago right? It’s like a little mini movie! In case you haven’t seen it, it gives a little nod to Stephen King’s Christine at the end. And Carrie did in fact get King’s blessing for that! Check it out here and then we’ll discuss the duds she’s wearing.
Pretty awesome right?! I definitely think the video goes great with the song. Let’s talk about how to recreate our own Underwood inspired funeral attire shall we? First what we need are some snazzy boots (high or low boots will work, we just went with these studded ones). check! Next we need a high-low dress line. check! And last we need some sort of floofy neckline. check!
Dierks Bentley’s latest video is called Tip It On Back. He’s sounding and looking better than ever don’t you think? Or if you haven’t seen or heard him lately, let’s have a look shall we?
He’s got such a casual sexy thing going on with both his voice AND his attire. Am I right? So let’s go with the attire for a minute, shall we? All of the men can pull this look off for sure and you probably have some part of this ensemble already, but if not, Langstons can help you complete the outfit. Here’s how!
They also had a section on jeans and the perfect pair. The Lucky Brand Sofia Bootcut were described as a jean that is contoured and flatters your body. They also pointed out how soft they are. The $119 price they had next to them made me chuckle…how about $79.97?
Yall know we have to spotlight our boy Blake Shelton when he has a video come out. Sure Be Cool If You Did came out this week and I gotta say, I really like this video…it just seems very real. And Blake is lookin’ good yall! Check it out:
He’s got a great everyday look going on in this video right? I mean really it’s a casual outfit anybody and everybody could pull off. And it is Valentine’s Day isn’t it ladies? You might want to buy one or all of these pieces for your man so you can bring home your own Blake Shelton tonight, right?! Here’s the outfit, the Langston’s way:
