The 12 Shirts of Christmas

I own a lot of Western shirts.  And when I say a lot I mean 12.  Exactly.  So to be particularly festive I thought I would show them to you, so you could laugh at my excessive amount of check shirts and give you a bit of Christmas cheer.  I also thought that since I own a total of 12 it would make a great count down to the big day.
So my First Shirt of Christmas is this short sleeved pale blue one, which is by the brand Twenty X, at least I think that is what it says...the label is pretty faded.  It also says Oceanside Cowgirl on the collar, which is quite fitting as this is a really nice summery shirt.  The colours in it include turquoise, French navy, beige and chocolate brown.  I love how checked shirts are made up of so many colours, which you can only see when you get up close.
My Second Shirt of Christmas is this pretty pale orange one by R.M. Williams, the iconic Australian brand.  I have so many R.M. Williams clothes.  Actually I haven't introduced you to my R.M. Williams boots yet.  I must do that in the New Year.  Anyway, back on topic.  This one is semi-fitted and has a few fine pleats in the front.  The colours are apricot, pink, pale brown and white.
The Third Shirt of Christmas brings us this 'Steppin' Out Shirt'.  It's a bit flash.  It's a Wrangler shirt and is brighter than my usual pickings.  It is a mix of hot pink, turquoise, aqua green, a burnt sienna and white.  It also has lines of silver thread through it to give it a little sparkle and some turquoise stitching to highlight the pockets and lapel. 
The Fourth Shirt of Christmas seems to make me very grumpy for some reason.  Another Wrangler shirt it has pink (obviously), white and a bit of yellow in there.  The buttons are cute too.  They are those stud kind (which means you can rip off your shirt in a hurry in case you need to) and they have little pink horse shoes on them.
The Fifth Shirt of Christmas is an Australian brand called Bull Rush.  It's even made in Australia, which unfortunately is a rare thing nowadays.  This shirt has more of a linen feel to it and has their logo embroidered on the pocket, which is a cowboy on a bucking bull.  It's pretty cool.  The colours included are three various shades of green and a bright blue.
The Sixth Shirt of Christmas is another Wrangler shirt.  This is a little different in that the checks are diagonal.  It also has diamond shaped pearl coloured buttons.  This one is actually a size 8 and I don't think I've ever been able to do it up, but I like wearing it open over a singlet.  Colours found in this one are light blue, navy, yellow and white.
The Seventh Shirt of Christmas is another by R.M. Williams.  I really like this one.  It has their logo on the yoke of the shirt at the back, which is a the head of a longhorn cow.  The buttons are the snappy kind and are a pretty pearl.  Colours in the shirt include pink, a sort of burgundy brown, white and a little bit of bright turquoise green!
The Eighth Shirt of Christmas is my most festive, I think.  It's by Wrangler and very Christmasy with all the red.  I like the contrast with the navy and white too.
For the Ninth Shirt of Christmas I found this nice rusty old gate and stood against it.  I'm looking in the direction of where my town is.  How nice are the hills in the background?!  This shirt is by Wrangler and is full of pretty colours like pink, orange, brown, white and a hint of green.
For the Tenth Shirt of Christmas I couldn't choose between which photo I liked the best.  I'm sorry, but my daughter got in there too and they were all so cute.  Of her, not me.  My final R.M. Williams shirt is a semi fitted one like the orange one and has the little pleats in the front.  It's got a few shades of mauve running through it, white and navy.
The Eleventh Shirt of Christmas made my little girl cry.  Actually it wasn't the shirt, it was the fact that I got on the swings without her.  This one is made by Thomas Cook, an Australian family owned company.  I remember wearing this at The Royal Melbourne Show one year, after the cattle judging when I went to the Cattleman's Bar.  Let's just say it didn't end well and I don't remember most of it.  It has burgundy, various shades of red, beige, salmon and cream.  It's quite pretty actually.
For the Twelfth Shirt of Christmas I have one of my favourites because it is super comfortable.  It's by Wrangler and has that lovely soft feeling of being washed dozens of times.  It's cream with a bit of beige, burgundy and pink.  It also has three quarter sleeves and I've had lots of good times in this shirt.  In fact I've had lots of good times in all my shirts!
 
Merry Christmas to you and all your Western shirts! xo
