Did you ever read, 'Even Cowgirls get the Blues'? I remember being enthralled with it when I was younger; it's originality, strong female characters, humor and magical prose made it hard to put down. It's one of those books that's long been on my list of rereads, but which I've yet to return to. If you've never heard of it, I highly recommend you pick up a copy...

I guess the Southwestern feel of this outfit is what made that novel come to mind, but really though, who wouldn't want to be a badass cowgirl? This skirt is probably one of the oldest items in my wardrobe: a piece I think I've had since middle school if you can believe it. I bought it while on a trip to Spain and never let go. I love the subtle acid wash, and I've never seen denim in this faded rose color since. I decided to keep the color palette neutral with brown accessories and a fun, abstract print, then topped it all off with some fun jewelry, including this new scarab ring that was custom-made for me by jewelry designer Stephen Dweck. Historically scarabs are thought to convey eternity: a little reminder that fate and destiny are at work in your life and to look beyond the ordinary and see magic in the everyday. So what better way to remind yourself than wearing it on your finger?

  5. Love the colour of your skirt and the overall neutral pallet of your outfit. I didn't know that scarabs were known for conveying eternity, I love learning about things like that :)

    Take care,
