I hope you’re all having a fantastic week so far – I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday. I don’t know what it is, but since I arrived out west, it seems like the days are endless but yet the week is going fast. It’s been such a nice break to have no cell service so I can truly take in the open spaces and breathtaking landscapes. Sometimes you just need space to clear your mind and reflect on everything going on in your life, and this trip has truly acted as medicine for me.
I wish I could bring all of you with me, but since that’s not possible, I wanted to share some outfit inspiration that reflects some of the beauty you find out here in Wyoming.
This outfit was inspired by some of my favorite vintage pieces in my closet. I’ve had the chance to explore my parents’ and grandparents’ closets for inspiration but haven’t yet used many of the pieces I found. The base of this outfit was formed around my denim – the Alex by Kimes Ranch Jeans. This is one of my favorite pairs of jeans for the details and wash. They are the perfect length, even with these open toe booties with a heel.

Booties – Lindsley by Ariat
On the top half, I started with a denim top I got on the clearance rack at Target. I have so many denim shirts, but I love this one for the peplum style and the v-neck cut. It’s super sturdy material, almost like a real pair of jeans. I then added this southwestern inspired vest on top, which was hidden in the back of my mom’s closet. I saw it and knew I had to work with it! The colors are both earthy and bold, making it a perfect statement piece. Also, notice that beautiful buckskin leather clutch with a Wyoming bucking horse tooled in it – perfect for a Wyoming photo shoot, right?

Moving onto accessories, I layered two bolo ties – one large copper bolo and a smaller native stone bolo. I thought they looked interesting together and brought balance to the top half of the outfit. Next, I added three pieces that go effortlessly together – in fact, I think they may have been a set. The spiny oyster cuff, statement ring and earrings all came from my grandma’s collection and give the perfect hint of color to the accessories while still keeping the look very earthy. I also added a leather cuff, a second silver cuff and a silver ring for added interest.
