I'm quite enjoying the sudden fashion turn that my blog has taken, and as well as doing something I really love, which is styling photo shoots, it seems to be turning my 11 year old son into quite a good photographer! Unfortunately it is me that has to model all these outfits that I am finding in Op Shops (Charity stores), but I guess you are looking at what society deems a 'real' woman. You know...one with wobbly bits, stretched out tummy skin from having babies and an un-Photoshopped face.
I have also discovered that it is helping me follow one of my true purposes behind this blog....to unleash a little bit of cowgirl in everybody! If you've noticed my headings here on my blog; such as 'Cowgirl Up', 'Country Style' and 'Horses', it really is the direction I want to go with it all.
Anyway, today's OOOTD...(yes, another great Op Shop find!)
I really like this little ruffle top I found for the incredible price of $4. It's a perfect top for Summer and as I quickly discovered...it hides the tummy! Joy! I've never worn anything fluffy like this, at least not since I was put in ruffles by my Mum when I was younger, but I quite like the look. I even wore this out to dinner last weekend when I took my kids out to the pub!
These are my Ariat jeans, again. I promise...next shoot I will wear something different on the bottom half (!)...and quite possibly I wasn't wearing any shoes. Actually I lie...my Ariat boots are under there somewhere.
These photos were taken in my Dad's front paddock. Judging by the length of the grass his steers have been hanging about up the back of the farm. Despite the lack of bovine bodies I still don't look particularly comfortable! Not really a natural model. I think I might even have been muttering instructions to my photographer/son here.
I'm pretty sure that I was getting hungry here, the grumpy face is creeping in. I just look like I was so thinking about food. I did, however, decide at this point that this was a great outfit to wear out to dinner, so off to the pub we went!
Would you wear something from a Charity/Op shop to tea?! I did, and people were none the wiser!
