Hey guys, what’s new? Just another day for you too then? As we all know Valentines day is today and even though I’m partnered I don’t really celebrate this so called “special” day. I honestly don’t see what’s the point when you have 24/7 365 days a year to make the one you love happy. Anyways moving on, whether you’re all lovey dovey in love or forever alone here’s a new look to feast your eyes upon that involves just another ordinary day. Once again I’m channeling my inner cowboy. Before we begin let me just add that I recently found a new BIGGER and BOLDER hat that would have been perfect for this look. I wish I could have shot it with this outfit but to redo the shoot would mean discarding these great images (mainly because they are of me). Although it makes me sad that I found true love in hat form after this shoot, the show must go on!
Let’s start things off with these jeans. As you all know I like my black skinny jeans but these baby’s bring something new to the table. With their cool lace-up lattice detail they bring that extra edge whether it be rock ‘n’ roll or cowboy couture.
With these jeans I’ve tucked in a white vest with this long sleeved shirt on top. I love cacti so much that it only made sense to wear them too! Obviously not the real things but you know what I mean. There’s a good way and a bad way to make a printed shirt and clearly this one has ticked all the right boxes. These quirky print shirts can always go badly with the outcome of them looking tacky and cheap but the use of subtle colours, fabric and great imagery the overall look of this shirt and its quality is far from that.
Lets move on to these boots. These boots were made for walking, better yet stomping all over the competition. These black leather harness boots are now one of my favourite shoes to wear. Not only are they comfortable, they make a great accessory especially with the ring on the harness. I’m like a magpie when it comes to shiny things! With the boots being leather it made sense to wear more leather which is where this double buckle leather belt and faux leather jacket come in overall creating another western inspired look. What do you think?
I hope you like it and until next time, have a good week and expect loads of Valentines day posts!
