Denim Shirts and Cowgirl Hats: Let's Rodeo!

Monday marks the beginning of the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo, voted seven years in a row the top indoor large rodeo by the Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association. Also, over the years the Rodeo has provided over 113 million scholarships for local youth.

Black Jacket: Old Navy
Denim Shirt: Walmart
Lee Jeans: Kohls
Boots: Steim Mart
Bracelet: Forever 21
Belt: Garment Exchange Consignment

 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 clich√© 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"
Now, go check out the other very visible ladies of Patti's Visible Monday!

ALSO, join in with all of the MONDAY MINGLE fashionistas for some great looks:



  1. Pam--I actually own a cowboy hat, but I can think of only one time I've worn it. Hm, you may have given me an idea. Your bracelet is beautiful. Hope all of the rodeo days are good ones for you and San Antonio.
