Just Call Me Annie Oakley

I decided to go for an almost western feel today.
I did live in Texas for 6 years so I think I can pull it off. 
I wish I would have had a cowboy hat and a horse for added accessories!
At least I didn't have any waving onlookers today, just a dude in a Penske Rental truck that drove by and whistled as I was taking photos.
Can't decide if the attention is good or bad for the ego.

I really wanted to wear my cowboy boots that match the color of this belt, but they were not in the 30 for 30 mix, so these had to do.
I am sorry for all of you that were hit yet again by ice and snow.  
It was a balmy 56 here.
I am pretty sure this is when the Penske truck driver drove by. 
Yea, I went high waisted here.  
Thought I might start trying to get used to the trend.
I also wanted to show you today my loot from an accessory swap I did through Teaching In Heels
I was swap partners with
Melissa Jo from Lady of the Flowers.
Check out the cool stuff she sent me:
The great zebra scarf, a super cool, very long mod necklace, a bling barrette, and 3 pair of great earrings.
Thanks Melissa Jo!

Perfect timing for the opening of the San Antonio Livestock Show & Rodeo this weekend!! I love the seeming in this skirt! It adds so much to the look...

Love this! I'm so into anything western right now. I really like this skirt. The texture is a bit unexpected and makes the whole look more Annie Oakley-esque. I like! I'd whistle too. ;)

What a fantastic skirt--an a very versatile piece. I'm going to believe that YOU made the Penske guy's day.

i love this little remix you did and great use of accessories. the clogs went really well with the outfit even if you didn't have boots. and you make pink lipstick look so good!

Wow you look fabulous! I'm a teensy bit jealous you lived in Texas- I would love to visit! We were hit by a huge storm here-not fun! I love how you've kept your accessories simple but chic- great look! Thanks for your sweet comment- I'm a new follower!

Love it! Those boots are fantatstic! Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting - it's so nice to hear from a fellow remixer! It's my first time doing it and so far, so good. I'm a little nervous about the end of the 30 days, I'm afraid I'll run out of ideas - lol! Keep up the great work!
