Cowgirl in Black

Before I get to the body of this post, I need to say a few things. For the last few days, I have had difficulty functioning. The current happenings in the United States are deplorable, disgusting, and heartbreaking. As of late, I feel as if my blog is very shallow and of little importance. Especially compared to the issues of this country, the struggles of others, to speak nothing of the horrors around the world. However, we all need a rest at times. A brief moment to step back from the tragedy and struggle, and spend time on what makes us happy and have some semblance of normalcy to get through the day. Self-care is important and necessary. For this, I will do my best to continue blogging, but sometimes I can be at an utter loss for words, and it will be reflected in my posts, which may have been apparent in my last post, as it was very limited in text. I will not go in depth about how I am currently coping with the current situation. I will not make it a part of this blog, as I want to keep this blog a small corner of happiness and normalcy. However I want to make it very clear I do not support the current administration. I do not approve of the blatant racism that is happening. I do not approve of the sexism that is happening. I do not approve of the homophobia that is happening. I believe we are all equal no matter our ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation. And with all of that out of the way, let’s get to the fun stuff.

Since there is less than a month of Knott’s Berry Farm’s amazing Ghost Town Alive experience, I’ve been spending a good deal of time soaking up as much of this real life, family-friendly version of Westworld as possible. So, this is the reason for two Knott’s posts in a row.

Since Ghost Town Alive ends in the near future and western wear is my jam, don’t be surprised if there is just a slew of Knott’s posts. I have so many friends who are wanting to visit before it comes to an end on September 4th, and I’m never going to say “No” to a visit to Knott’s!

Outfit
Hat: Playclothes, Burbank, California

Skirt: Switchblade Stiletto
Belt: Knott’s Berry Farm (buckle is Pat’s though)

    I actually like how the dark colours reflect a darker mood that’s pervading us all at the moment (not just in the US – there’s some unsavoury stuff going on here in Western Europe also). x
