Urban cowgirl

One of the best parts of having a personal-style blog is the feeling that I get every day as I get dressed that I can almost wear a costume for the day, depending on my mood. Today’s particular outfit was inspired by the trek I’d be making across the snowy campus to get to my class. Welcome to January, Caitlin. Here’s the breakdown:

Cape: Gift from my roommate
Plaid Blouse: American Living via Goodwill
Denim: Elle via Kohl’s
Boots: Gift from a friend
Bag: Gift from my roommate
Watch: Garage sale
Bracelet: Target 

My very kind roommate and photographer picked this chic cape up over Christmas break for me. Needless to say, I immediately tried it on and, of course, planned on wearing it the next day … which I did. I also acquired these BOC boots from a friend, took one look at the boots next to the cape and decided I’d wear them together for more of an urban cowgirl look. I mean, they’re kind of cowboy-ish booties, right?
