OOTD: Cowboy Boots & Turning a Miss into a Hit #ootd

OOTD cowboy boots #ootd

This is my very first ever, OOTD post. I’ve always wanted to wear cowboy boots but never felt like I had the right outfit. Honestly, when I was younger, I just felt like unless I lived in Texas or was a cowgirl, I shouldn’t wear them. Nowadays it’s not knowing what looks best with a pair of cowboy boots…

So a couple of years ago I bought a pair. I wore them last Halloween to a party dressed like a cowgirl. Yep, I did! 

I have not worn them since. I take that back… I did wear them with a pair of jeans that same week (with the jeans over them so you couldn’t tell anything about them.

While I was working a few weeks ago I happened upon a blog that had a sweater/cardigan, I think it was, that the blogger got from Vessos. It was cute and I’d never heard of Vessos.com before and clicked on it to check it out. 

FYI: As a blogger, this is considered work. 

Anyway, as I was looking at the clothes on this site I saw a dress that was not only pretty, but the model was wearing cowboy boots with it, and it looked gorgeous. And even better, the boots I own are camel and turquoise and would go with this dress perfectly.

It was less than $21, a steal! What do I have to lose, I asked myself? $21, I answered back. What the heck… at least I would finally have something to wear my cowboy boots with!

I ordered it. And waited…

And waited. It took over two weeks to get here. I’m an Amazon Prime member and want my packages fast, two weeks was forever. 

Then it came! I was excited. I opened my package and… sigh.

Um, this is not what it looked like online. I went back and looked at it and nope, it did not. I would not call this a “dress”. More of an, “undress”. The entire dress is very sheer and only has a few buttons. 

I was so disappointed. Not because of the $21, but I really wanted this dress to wear with my COWBOY BOOTS!

Wait! I bought a slip dress that can be worn alone or as a dress/skirt extender recently and it just might work with it, I thought. 

It worked. Even though the dress was a huge miss, I was able to turn it into a hit, by wearing it not as a dress, but as a duster.

Last Saturday my son and I went to see The Little Mermaid, Jr at our local children’s theatre (Knoxville Children’s Theatre) and I decided to just go for it! This was the day I was going to wear my boots.
