Spring is on it's way! Well, almost anyway. As I put on my clothes for work today, I was reminded how drab I feel in this red sweater. It's a sweater for gosh sakes and not figure flatering, which makes me not like my look today and reminds me of warmer days..
I actually purchased a short-sleeved shirt online yesterday I thought you might get a kick out of, because Jake thought it was hilarious. Not too often is Jake telling me that I HAVE to buy an article of clothing, but this was a must. My sis pointed it out to me online. Our boy is going to be stylin' in it.
But speaking of short sleeves and since I'm still in this ugly red sweater, I want to show you this spring's continued trends in casual western wear.
It all comes down to pattern. Sometimes, the funkier and colorful the design, the better. Below are a couple I really like from www.nrsworld.com.
I actually have the tee right below. This is one that I bought in Denver.
Okay, now this brings me back to circa 1992. Now I know what everyone has been talking about when they say that their old clothes are now "in". I'm starting to get to that age (sad face). This picture below is literally from a new line from Drysdales. The funny is thing is that they're charging $59 for it! I'm pretty sure they didn't update the model or picture. AYE CARUMBA! What is that on her belt?!
Gosh, I remember when Brooks and Dunn made the American flag shirt popular, along with the famous, "flames" shirt. Guys and girls alike all wanted these two shirts and I was one of them! Wow. Long story short, it looks like this early 90's look is coming back sooner than I thought. When Jake and I was in Vegas this last December for the NFR, I did have a booth tell me that woman's jeans are going to a higher rise again, which is depressing.
So ladies, at this point, If I saw you in a flames or a full-on American flag western shirt, I wouldn't quite think you're a "trend setter" yet. Don't get me wrong, I love stars, stripes and the colors of red and blue; however, if it looks like Betsy Ross sewed your shirt, I'll probably just make fun of you....at least for now.
Something else I wanted to point out was the rising popularity in dog tag necklaces. I actually just got one for myself a few weeks ago at a little shop in Des Moines. I bought the ball chain and picked out three charms to go on it. (I thought it could maybe be a right-off for tax purposes:)) Watch on www.krazycowgirl.com soon for my new inspiration!
Here are a few others I saw on National Roper's Supply that I liked.
Well, until next time!
