NEXT! we have the ‘it’s stampede let’s not even try’ look, kind of a mix of just got out of bed/binge watching netflix with a bucket of chicken fingers on a monday night feel, another miss. of course there are those that always impress; not to pigeon hole but the award for best stampede style goes to those of the older demographic. i don’t know if it’s the age and the grown appreciation for what we have right here at home but i absolutely LOVE spotting older men and women decked out head to toe in their suede fringe and alberta boots, they just never disappoint. there is also the modern cowboy, dressed to the nines independently of the western theme but finishing it off with a wicked western accessory like a hat, boots or jewelry. i love seeing how people play with items currently available in stores and making them work for the stampede. quite honestly i don’t quite understand why canada hasn’t caught on stampede being such a great place to find style inspiration, coachella is synonymous with flower crowns and dessert boots, stampede, dare i say is possibly an even better playground for dressing up and sharpening your styling chops. give it a try! watch out for our weekend 1 finds from the greatest outdoor show on earth on coming this week (last year’s looks can be seen right here). until then here is my day 2 ootd and some future stampede look inspiration. lead by example, as i always say. xoxo

wearing: nasty gal top, self portrait shorts, alberta boot company boots, smithbilt hat, h&m belt

    Personally, I love how excited you get at dressing like a cowboy lmao. Love these pictures. When I first saw you tease yourself sitting on a horse for the stampede I was like, “Yes, this post is going to be great.” My favourite shot though? The last one. Very dramatic 🙂

  2. How cool are these denim shorts. Love the outfit.
