Today is the day. Like, it’s really here. Round one of the National Finals Rodeo starts tonight and everyone in the cowboy world will be watching!
We arrived last night (three flights and twelve hours later) and spent today walking the Strip and perusing Cowboy Christmas at the Las Vegas Convention Center. If you have never been out to Vegas for NFR, let me tell you, the shopping alone is reason enough to come! We walked booths for four hours and didn’t even make it through the entire first (yes, there are two) floor. Not to mention the shopping at Mandalay Bay and downtown that we haven’t even visited yet!
The fashion, of course, was on point. I have been watching the NFR 2016 trends for a few months and they all came out full force today:
Mexican embroidery that came in the form of bright colored vests, jackets and shift dresses.
Fringe on everything from shoes (HCC mocs of course!) to boots, to vests and dresses.
Velvet pants, body suits and wraps in all kinds of fun vintage colors.
Statement silver & turquoise has always been in and is bold as ever.
As for me, I tried to channel a “swanky Vegas” day look that has touches of vintage and modern trends. Obviously, these photos were not taken in Vegas, but I wore the exact same outfit today for hanging around the town.
I picked up this black velvet shirt from the thrift store last month, and it goes with everything! It’s amazing what a little texture can do for the style of a shirt. I paired the velvet with Rock 47 palazzo pants.
I accessorized with a burgundy floppy hat, bronze statement earrings, a rhinestone belt and pointed toe Corral boots.
I did change my hair style and wore it all down instead of the messy braid, but I like it either way depending on your plans for the day! I also rocked a hot pink lip and a brown smoky eye with this look.
I will be here in Vegas until Monday, so keep checking back for more of my adventures here and to talk NFR of course.
Stay unique, sisters!
