Rodeo Ready

With less than a month away from Rodeo, I simply had to share some of my favorite “rodeo inspired” outfits with you all. 
Starting with this one.  
ruthie grace boutique olive shirt dress, mayra cowboy boots, old gringo tall cowboy boots, henri bendel wyatt satchel, karen walker sunglasses, happiness boutique necklace, the lone star looking glass, houston rodeo fashion, rodeo style 2016, houston fashion bloggers, rodeo houston fashion

Okay well maybe this outfit doesn’t SCREAM rodeo ready. But maybe
not every rodeo attendee has embraced her inner cowgirl and is down with the
fringe, turquoise & denim rodeo look.
This option is very much “Urban Cowgirl 2016.”

Side note: If you haven’t seen the movie Urban Cowboy … please do
yourself the favor! Especially if you live in Houston. 

Really though, anything can be rodeo chic by adding a pair of
cowboy boots.
I am absolutely ADDICTED to these Mayra Boots from Cavender’s. Ask
anyone who works with me, I probably wear them to the office every other day.
They’re the perfect height & way too comfortable to be so cute.
I reallllllly enjoy the fact that my office has a laid back dress
code.

Speaking of dress – code. How adorable is this olive green shirt
dress?! I actually don’t have any shirt dresses hanging in my closet, so this pretty
green one from Ruthie Grace Boutique is an entirely new look for me.
Ruthie Grace Boutique is located just north of Houston, in
Montgomery, TX. Their Instagram is precious, and you can shop straight from
it.  For those of you who prefer the more
traditional methods of online shopping, lucky for you Ruthie Grace Boutique
just launched their new website. You can find my olive green dress here

So anyway, when I first tried on this shirt dress, I was like … do I belt it? Do I wear heels with it? How do I style it!? 
While it can be styled all of the above mentioned ways, I chose to pair it with my tall boots, a bold statement necklace (this silver one is perfect for rodeo) and a silver cuff. A neutral (go with everything) purse and tortoise shell sunnies completed the look.

Now if only rodeo was here already … because I am clearly ready to
kick my heels and say “yeehaw!”
Also, I have to mention! Y’alls sweet comments on yesterday’s post
were unbelievably amazing! Truly made my day/week/life. Thank you so much for
your kind words and advice, it means so much! As always, thanks for stopping by
the blog. Xo!

  • I'm from Houston and my parents used to go to the bar in Urban Cowboy all the time. That's her favorite movie. Lovely outfit – I think it's perfect for the rodeo which I've been to many, many times.

  • Love the outfit! It definitely has a rodeo vibe, but isn't your typical rodeo outfit. I especially love the necklace!

  • I will be going to the SA Rodeo this year and hopefully heading back home for the Houston rodeo because it's my favorite.
