Dapper Cowgirl

With so many Halloween festivities, fall Dapper Day (an unofficial day at the Disneyland Resort when Guests are encouraged to “step out in style” for a day at the park) really snuck up on me and I honestly felt like I had nothing to wear. But when I noticed the temperatures were going to be on the cooler side, and wanting to be different than the rest of the well-dressed crowd, I opted to pull out some of my nicer, more spiffy vintage western wear.

I am overjoyed that I opted for this look as opposed to a dress or blouse/skirt combo. I was comfortable, yet still stylish, and got to showcase some of my favorite pieces from my wardrobe that don’t go out often. While I have loads of western wear, I tend not to wear the true vintage in fear of something happening to it. But for a laid back day at the park, it worked out very well.

Not only did I get to see so many familiar faces, I met lots of new people, and I got to finally meet some readers and Instagramers in person! Which is always a treat!

There was the added bonus of the Dapper Day Expo where true vintage and vintage inspired vendors sold their wares. I came home with quite the Match Accessories bundle, including this amazing Davy Crockett guitar brooch! I also scored two new to me vintage dresses, including a Swirl!
