OOTD - Round Up

This photo shoot was done on Melbourne Cup Day, which, as strange as it might seem, is a day where a public holiday is held because of a horse race.  The "race that stops a nation" is not only an exciting race, but also gives you a perfect excuse to bum around at home. 

Ok, so this Cup Day I didn't just hang out at home, I dragged my 11 year old out and we snapped a few OOTD's, which I shall reveal over a few coming posts.  For this shoot I found this little nifty top for the fantastic price of $3 at a bigger op shop in Warragul.
It has a bit of a western feel to it, plus it is great for hiding a tummy!
It works well on or off the shoulder and would also look nice with jeans or pants.  This skirt is my R.M. Williams grey/black denim skirt which has a bit of crochet lace on the hem.  It's really cute!
This is my trusty Akubra hat, an iconic Australian brand.  This particular hat is called the 'Rough Rider'.  My husband has one exactly the same, only one size bigger (he has a small head for someone so tall....or perhaps I just have a big head!), but his hat is decidedly much dirtier.
This herd of overly curious steers belong to my Dad. 
I think they thought I was slightly insane.  Or perhaps they were snickering quietly to themselves about my pasty white legs that haven't seen the light of day since last Summer.
Cows are so lovely and friendly.
See?!
I'm wearing my Ariat boots as usual.  I promise, I will wear something different on my feet at some point!
But for now I'll just sport my 'serious cowgirl' look.....

    1. Hi Laura. They are gorgeous! They are lovely to look at in the paddock and they can be really sweet (I used to break them in for shows). The photos are courtesy of my 11 year old boy..can you believe it?! He's showing quite an eye for fashion photography! x

    1. It's my favourite MAC lipstick Laura that I've had for ages (probably way too long!). My sister bought it for me.

  6. Lovely looking cows and so well behaved! The ones by us try to charge anyone that attempts to walk across their field.

    1. Dad hasn't had these steers that long and I was surprised that they were so quiet, although they were more curious than anything. These guys came bolting up the paddock to see what we were doing! They were funny!!
