Check out the both the Men’s and Women’s Langston’s T-Shirts! Only $16.97!!
For today’s Employee Pick, I am the one picking. I spent some time this Thanksgiving with my niece, actually a few of them….so I have girlie clothes on the brain. All the pink and glitter is so fun. I wanted to put together an outfit that had those, things in it, but that was also wearable and easy. It all starts with this Rock and Roll Cowgirl Girl’s 2-Fer T-Shirt with Winged Heart and Roses. I mean seriously, how cute is this shirt?? The black tee is paired with blue sleeves and bunches of bling and attitude all on a comfy 100% cotton base.
A tee like that needs some sturdy jeans to tone it down. Wrangler Girl’s “Cash” Cowgirl Cut Ultimate Riding Jeans – American Spirit (Sizes 7-14) are just the ticket. These jeans are great for riding, they have the perfect rise, plus flat seams and a vented bootcut. But they aren’t just for riding, they are a great every day jean too.
Those boot cut jeans need some boots. I love when boots have a fun shaft. Even if it stays hidden a lot, I know it is there. These Ariat Quickdraw Kids Boots – Brown/Giraffe Print are perfect. They feature a double stitch welt with a TPR outsole and 4LR technology and a fun giraffe pattern shaft.
It’s getting cold here in OKC, so some outerwear is needed for sure. Cruel Girl Girl’s Vest with Rhinestone Snaps – Pink is something I wish I could find in my size! I know a necklace might be overkill on this outfit, but I couldn’t resist picking out this Kid’s Lil Chick Multi Colored Chip Necklace with Flower Beads.
Up this week is Jared…it is after all a week of men’s clothes around here on the blog, so a men’s pick seemed only fitting. I think this look starts with the boots, Ariat® Men’s Rambler Boots – Earth / Brown Bomber. These boots are casual and have that worn in look. They are not fancy or pretentious, they are real and tough. They are classic. Besides looking good, they are made with Ariat’s ATS technology which gives three times the support of normal cowboy boots. They also have the Ariat Rambler’s EVA footbed and forefoot cushion gel which reduces stress on hips, knees and back. I wonder if I can wear these? Jared said, “I like the worn look to them, and also the wide square toe for extra comfort.”
Paired with the boots, Lucky Men’s Camino Plaid Western Snap Shirt – Brown and Ariat Men’s Bomber Vest – Brown. The vest is brown faux leather with poly fill insulation It has a zip down front with a snap down closure, plus two zipper hand pockets. “With the colder weather approaching, this vest is perfect to layer over any long sleeve shirt.” And the shirt. I am in love with this shirt. Jared is too, he said, “The brown plaid print all over this shirt gives it a great look. I would wear the sleeves rolled up for a casual style.”
And to round out the look, Levi’s ® Men’s 527 ™ Boot Cut Jeans – Indie Blue. This jean is a boot cut jean with a 19.75″ boot cut leg opening that fits perfectly over boots. As Jared put it, “You can’t go wrong with these dark wash jeans to go with my boots.” These jeans are a must for any man with boots.
This week our pick is from Donna. Can anyone read the name Donna without singing the Richie Valens song in their head? I know I can’t. Donna’s pick starts with the jeans. “The jeans are gorgeous. I love the wash and the stitching on the back pockets.” The jeans are Cruel Girl Women’s Grace Low Rise Skinny Jeans – Dark Stonewash. They featuring a dark stonewash, permanganate, hand sanding, whiskers, tacking, tint, chevrons, 11.25 Oz stretch denim skinny leg, and a low rise. Seriously, what else could you want or need in a jean?
Paired with the Cruel Girl jeans, this Cruel Girl Women’s Long Sleeve Print Crew Neck T-Shirt – Cream. It is long sleeve, crew neck, and has rhinestone accents all over. It is 50% cotton making it soft and 50% polyester to make it last. Donna said, “I picked the shirts because its nice and casual.”
As for the details, a Western Charm Women’s Charm Necklace – Silver Tone and Lane Boots Women’s ‘Wild Ginger’ Cowboy Boots – Black. “I picked the necklace because it was simple and casual like the shirt.” And as far as the boots…. “The boots are beautiful.” Enough said.
Did you guys know that our flagship store in the Oklahoma City Stockyards is haunted!?!?!
As the story goes, back in the days before we occupied the space, there was a dance hall in the building. Legend has it that two women, Rose and Patty worked in the dance hall. Patty was shot by a jealous lover on the first floor, and Rose, who was overcome with grief, hung herself upstairs.
According to reports, the upstairs area has left many an employee with feelings of unrest and dread. There have been cases of the lights turning off and on by themselves and and a “presence” seems to be always up there. HauntedHouses.com even recounts an employee being shoved down the stairs by a paranormal being.
What do you think? A bit of Halloween fun, or a truly haunted building? Lucky for me the Internet department is housed at a different location. Legend or not, I see no need to take any chances!!
Up this week is Debbie with a great outfit. I know you shop us for jeans, but have you ever checked out our dresses? This outfit is all about the dress. This Wrangler Women’s Rock 47 V-Neck Dresscan be worn so many different ways. Debbie pairs it with boots, Women’s Ariat Heritage Western Boots – Vintage Caramel, for a great Fall look. In the summer, it could easily pair with some sandals. Want to wear it into the Spring, try adding a cardigan over it. For winter add some tights, or even try it over some jeggings. The v-neck cut of this dress allows this Cindy Smith Women’s Dark Silver Tone Three Strand Necklace and Earring Set to shine.
When asked about this outfit, Debbie said “I love this dress. Seriously, I have no words!” I love it when people get excited about clothes. Yes, it is what is on the inside that counts, but that is no reason not to have fun with what is on the outside too!! Debbie lists these boots as her favorites and thinks they pair well with the dress. I agree! She picked the necklace for the same reason I liked it with this dress. The neckline allows the necklace to stand out.
Up this week with an outfit pick is Christy.
Let’s start at the top….Christy picked this Cindy Smith Women’s 3 Strand Turquoise Necklace and Earring Set. This matching turquoise necklace and earring set features a three strand turquoise necklace as well as matching earrings. Christy said, ” I love the necklace because of the three different strands, the texture and the turquoise stone brings it all together.” This set works well paired with a button down, like the Roper Women’s Long Sleeve Paisley Print Snap Shirt that Christy picked, but it also works with solid knits or basic cotton. It’s very versatile.
Christy paired the button down with these Levi’s ® Juniors 524 ™ Boot Cut Jeans. I also think it would be great with some black pants or jeans. She said, ” I picked this shirt because of the ocean blue color and the warm tone paisley print. The jeans are very comfortable and the dark blue compliments the ocean blue in the shirt. ”
As for boots, Christy went with Ariat, the Women’s Legend Boots. About the boots she said, ” I picked the boots because of the color which brings out the brown in the shirt. ”
Thanks for a great pick Christy!
When I started looking at Beth Ann’s picks, the boots were what I pulled up first…because of her quote I had to! She said, “best part of my outfit are these boots, just look at them!” Well, ok…let’s look at them!
Women’s Corral Boots with Rose Embroidery & Sequin Horseshoes. Beth Ann, you are right! These are some hot boots. They have a 13″ black distressed crater shaft, black horse shoe inlay, rose embroidery, snip toe, and 2″ fashion heel. What more could a girl need?
Let’s see what Beth Ann paired them with…
This Adiktd Women’s Long Sleeve Plaid Shirt with Floral Print has a plaid print all over, long sleeves, snap down front, two flap snap pockets, and a floral print on the front right side and back side. Beth Ann said, “I really like the colors and teh floral print gives a little spin on this western shirt.”
For jeans, she picked Stetson Women’s 816 Stretch Denim Classic Boot Cut Jeans – Dark Wash, her reason being that in her opinion a dark was is a bit classier than a light wash. What do you think? Do you agree with Beth Ann? I am more of a dark wash girl myself, but I know some people are loyal to a lighter fade. What side are you on?
Rounding out the look are these Kender West Turquoise Floral Dangle Hoop Earrings. According to Beth Ann, they are “cute and simple.”
What do you think? Is this an outfit you are ready to rock?
