For the next two weeks, rodeo is an excuse for the most over-the-top-Western attire to be worn often! So, we pull out the denim shirts, cowboy hats, boots, turquoise, silver, leather, and feathers and enjoy all the cliché comments about Texans!! It really is a fun time and we are San Antonio proud whenever the rodeo rides into town. Over this past weekend, the trail riders arrived from their time fighting the elements and the San Antonio Spurs rode out for a lengthy road trip where all local eyes are not on them for this short amount of time.
It seemed appropriate for VISIBLE MONDAY to celebrate the Rodeo's visibility with a denim shirt and Western belt. For the most part, my Western wear is very understated. Though born and bred Texan, I have never felt comfortable in a Cowgirl hat…and I have tried often! But denim and jewelry…bring it on! Let’s Rodeo!
"Shirts that cost more than a weeks worth of groceries are like horseshoes that cost more than a horse"
"If you get thrown from a horse, you have to get up and get back on, unless you landed on a cactus; then you have to roll around and scream in pain"
