Hello Friday, happy St. Patrick’s Day, and my one and only day of spring break! Haha! Very excited to have this day off to relax and kind of recoup. I feel like I’m starting to get back into the swing of things but am still a bit tired after my trip. I’m very much looking forward to a relaxing day but also am looking forward to hanging out with friends!
One of things I’m most looking forward to is the rodeo! OMG the fact that it’s going into week 3 and I still haven’t gone is astonishing to me! Guys you don’t get it last year I’m pretty sure I was there every day like not kidding EVERY DAY. For those of you who don’t live in Houston or in Texas for that matter the rodeo is a special time in a Texans life. It’s very much all about cowboys and typical farm animals like horses, bulls, etc. but it’s also a huge celebration! In Houston, it usually goes on during the month of March and it has a carnival, a competition, lots and lots of food (I MEAN TONS!), and who can forget all the great concerts. The line-up for the concerts comes out in January and the anticipation begins!
So of course, if you are going to attend the rodeo you have to dress the part (I mean it’s all about being a Texan right?). Yes, I do own cowboy boots and yes I am proud of them! I wear them to the rodeo and wear them during football season because it’s just a ritual here. Luckily for those who aren’t sure what to wear to the rode I have a few things to offer aka tips!
THINGS TO WEAR
–Boots: already mentioned these and trust me they are a must!
–Jeans: It’s March and Houston and the weather can be funky. At night, it can get kind of cool so I prefer jeans but don’t get me wrong I also love other pieces which brings me to next point.
-Dresses/Rompers: Nothing looks cuter than a dress or romper paired with your cowboy boots… it just doesn’t!
-Big Belt: YES YES YES! If you want to make a statement this is the way to do it! Belts can totally change an outfit and give you some edge.
-Hats: If you are brave enough to wear gallon hats GO FOR IT. I’m not a big hat fan but they are totally cute! Even baseball caps because Texas.
-Denim: If you own anything denim this is the time to bring it out! Yes, I’m talking 2000’s Brittany & Justin Timberlake style.
-OTS Tops: Really any top will look just fine paired with jeans but I love OTS tops so I mention them in anything 🙂
-Plaid Button Ups: Again, very classic cowboy look but SO perfect for the rodeo!
In my outfit, I’m wearing a cold shoulder top because I’ve mentioned I’m obsessed with them in previous posts so I don’t feel like I even need to explain this one. (haha!) I paired the cute top with some semi distressed jeans and of course my cowboy boots! I decided to add some fun color since the spring season is upon us and I love how the outfit turned out! For the bag, I knew anything with tassels would look perfect and I found the perfect bag! If I can find everything I will link it below along with other options if you need some fun rodeo wear!
For all my first-timers good luck! The rodeo can be “cray” but it’s so fun, worth the time, and you will make so many great memories! When it’s over you will be begging it to come back! Hope everyone has a great weekend and if you see me at the rodeo make sure to say hey!
