#FashionFriday – Cashmere and Cowboy Boots

Sharing is caring!

I’m a city gal. I was born in one of the biggest cities in New Jersey, which is only a train stop away from my favorite Metropolis, New York City. I love the high buildings, the corner stores, and the fact that there is always something open and ready for you to shop. I’m also a fan of city fashion. But, I do have one item i’ve always wanted: Cowboy Boots.

They are just so intricate, and even though they are meant for hard labor, they look so chic. The detailing on a Cowboy boot can be a piece of artwork, and it can also tell so much about the wearer. If they are stoic, full of humor, or a big fan of color. I’ve always wanted a pair that reflected me.

When Country Outfitter allowed me to pick a pair of cowboy boots of my very own, I was giddy with delight. There were so many to choose from; they’re selection is vast and it literally took me a few hours to narrow down the pair just for me. But I found them. Her name is Sorrel.

Isn’t she lovely? The Sorrel Apache Boot just screams “Amiyrah!” The classic chocolate color with a cool square toe, and the wonderfully colorful stitching on the side fits my personality to a tee. It was me. In a boot. As you can see by the little hand, The Duchess loved them too. I have a feeling she might inherit these later in life.

I even made a video featuring the boots in 2 chic, thrifty, city girl styles.

    you looked stunning in the orange dress. i lived in Texas 10 years and NEVER owned a pair of boots. of course, the ostrich boots i wanted were a teeny bit pricy…

    Very cute! I especially love the $1.00 owl necklace. Further proof that you don’t have to spend a lot to get a lot!

    You are simply adorable. I loved the country look.

    Cowboy boots are still on my to buy list. Since I have committed myself to being as debt free as I can possibly be before buying anything, I have put off buying them. But when I finally am, watch out! I hope I win!

    I have wanted a pair of cowboys boots for the longest time. My wish is to pair with a wrapped silk dress. My favorite is the urban cowgirl, so relaxed and ready to kick back.
