Cold Weather Cowgirl

The weather has turned quite brisk here in the Rose City and I am finding myself swaddled in wool and leather this fall…

This outfit is pretty representative of what my fall uniform has been these last few months…western wear blouse or sweater (in this case, it’s a fabulous mixture of both!), pants, cowboy boots, and a leather jacket.  And most of what this outfit is made up of, is all of my favorites.  The sweater is one of my favorite pieces, I’ve had it for going on six years, though I hardly wear it. I’m always fearful of something happening to it! And I’ve yet to see another vintage sweater remotely close to this one. And I wish I could have at least five pairs of these vintage H Bar C slacks. They fit wonderfully, and have nifty snap pockets.  And believe it or not, but this is my fifth leather jacket I’ve acquired this year.  I couldn’t pass this beauty up. It’s a little worse for wear, but I think that’s what I like about it. It’s been through the ringer, has missing fringe, and little rivets here and there and a stain or two, and that makes it all the more comfortable and wearable I think, and I don’t have to worry all that much about it’s condition.  And this purse is my favorite purse ever. It is able to hold a lot, and is a nice break from my tooled leather. I own three in this style – if you haven’t been able to tell already, I’m one of those people that when I find something I love, I have to own multiples. I’m that paranoid about my clothing.

I hope my American readers out there had a lovely Thanksgiving! Onward to Christmas! I’m hoping to wrap up my decorating this weekend and share some of it with you soon!

  1. Cute outfit! You look so great! Sometimes the vintage with a little wear is my favourite too. You’re free to enjoy it and the stains are just part of its history.
    And that purse…I’d own a few too if I could find one…so adorable…it looks like a spanish skirt!

    Lisa.
