I’m just going to say this is a holiday outfit inspiration post!  In reality, we took these images over a month ago!  I just haven’t had the time lately, and it totally bums me out…

BUT… Long loose cashmere top, with stretchy crop flares?  YES!  I just might wear this again for a holiday party this year!blog-rachel-pally-sweater-j-brand-gigi-crop-flare-67-booties-1 Oh, and if you’ve followed along…I’m a total sucker for an open back top!  This bralette is the best for coverage, and on Amazon for CHEAP!  Although, it’s really only good for those of us that don’t have “support issues”. 😉blog-rachel-pally-sweater-j-brand-gigi-crop-flare-67-booties-2 Oh, and…yes, we are totally matching, and I LOVE IT!blog-rachel-pally-sweater-j-brand-gigi-crop-flare-67-booties-6blog-rachel-pally-sweater-j-brand-gigi-crop-flare-67-booties-3 blog-rachel-pally-sweater-j-brand-gigi-crop-flare-67-booties-4 blog-rachel-pally-sweater-j-brand-gigi-crop-flare-67-booties-6blog-zara-faux-leather-jacket-crew-and-lu-josmo-boots-1 blog-zara-faux-leather-jacket-crew-and-lu-josmo-boots-2 blog-zara-faux-leather-jacket-crew-and-lu-josmo-boots-3

Fringe and Cowboy Boots

 I honestly love any kind of boots, but I’m totally partial to cowboy boots.  They have a little bit of a heel, but are still totally comfortable!  I have a completely beat up pair that is 25+ years old that I still wear on shoots.

I mentioned in this post that my mother in law lives in Oklahoma.  She is a total horse lover and still a competing rider! She generously bought Maya these boots for her birthday which she also wore here (she LOVES them!).  Well, I may have gushed about them so much that she got me a pair too-lucky me!!  They are my Christmas present, but I swear she said it was ok for me to wear them early!! 😉

They are SO gorgeous!  The studded detail??  The stitching that matches Maya’s boots?  DYING!  I’ll apologize ahead of time for the fact that these will be on repeat this fall/winter 🙂Blog Jamison Fringe Sweater Talbots White Sleevless Blouse Genetic Denim Twig in Strip Lucchese Cowboy Boots-8Blog Jamison Fringe Sweater Talbots White Sleevless Blouse Genetic Denim Twig in Strip Lucchese Cowboy Boots-1 Blog Jamison Fringe Sweater Talbots White Sleevless Blouse Genetic Denim Twig in Strip Lucchese Cowboy Boots-2 Blog Jamison Fringe Sweater Talbots White Sleevless Blouse Genetic Denim Twig in Strip Lucchese Cowboy Boots-3 Blog Jamison Fringe Sweater Talbots White Sleevless Blouse Genetic Denim Twig in Strip Lucchese Cowboy Boots-4 Blog Jamison Fringe Sweater Talbots White Sleevless Blouse Genetic Denim Twig in Strip Lucchese Cowboy Boots-5 Blog Jamison Fringe Sweater Talbots White Sleevless Blouse Genetic Denim Twig in Strip Lucchese Cowboy Boots-6 Blog Jamison Fringe Sweater Talbots White Sleevless Blouse Genetic Denim Twig in Strip Lucchese Cowboy Boots-7Maya kept running up and down the walkway to the house next to us.  Over and over and over 🙂Blog Osh Kosh Jean Jacket Gap brown Velour Dress Zulily Leopard Tights Corral Turquoise Toddler Boots-1Blog Osh Kosh Jean Jacket Gap brown Velour Dress Zulily Leopard Tights Corral Turquoise Toddler Boots-2Blog Osh Kosh Jean Jacket Gap brown Velour Dress Zulily Leopard Tights Corral Turquoise Toddler Boots-3Blog Osh Kosh Jean Jacket Gap brown Velour Dress Zulily Leopard Tights Corral Turquoise Toddler Boots-4 On me…

A few minutes into this, it started raining.  Thankfully we were under some trees, but after about 10 minutes it started POURING!  We were only a few blocks from home, so we packed up the wagon, I told Maya to hang on tight, and we ran home.  “Mommy, you’re running really FAST!!”  So, yes, these cowboy boots were made for walking and running 😉

Cowboy Boots and….wings?

 Maya is usually pretty good about letting me dress her (SO hope that lasts a while longer!!), but every once and a while she is adamant about wearing something.  Usually, it’s a pair of boots, but today….it was wings 🙂

Fringe sweater + Cowboy boots

Yup, sweater, jeans, and boots again.  Sorry, you will be seeing a lot of this combo over the winter months!  I wore this on a photo shoot, so forgive the totally scuffed boots.  I never know when I’m going to be traipsing through fields, and these are one of my favorite pairs (I bought them at a vintage store about 20 years ago!) Blog Jamison Fringe Sweater J Brand Skinny Cowboy Boots-1LOVING this top I got from H&M!!  It works for all body types, and would be the perfect top to hide a not yet disclosed baby bump (NO, I don’t have one!!), or even those months right after you had a baby!  Ok, or NOW! 🙂 Blog Jamison Fringe Sweater J Brand Skinny Cowboy Boots-2 Blog Jamison Fringe Sweater J Brand Skinny Cowboy Boots-3 Blog Jamison Fringe Sweater J Brand Skinny Cowboy Boots-4This isn’t fringe or boots, but omg, I love this picture from this summer….
