There’s something about ‘western wear’ that just screams rugged, outdoors-y, low maintenance, and comfortable. Perhaps it’s reminiscent of the American Southwest, Texas, or the south. My first pair of cowboy boots were purchased for a cattle drive trip to Montana with my friend Steph in 2007. While I am in no way rugged, outdoors-y, or low maintenance, I love being comfortable. Plus I like the history and stories behind a lot of the components of western wear.
For this work outfit, I put together a pair of ultra comfortable cowboy boots, a simple black tank, a simple cardigan, jeans, and a lovely Zuni turquoise necklace that hubby got me as an early anniversary gift (isn’t he sweet?). I feel special wearing something that was created with expert care and love by human hands. Overall, I felt chic and comfortable all day at work, which is always my goal for work outfits.
