Cowgirl Wannabe

 First I would like to point out that the beautiful mountain behind me is turning red.  I LOVE the mountains in the fall.  There is nothing quite like driving/hiking through a canyon that is on fire with autumn leaves.  Put it on your bucket list if you haven't done it...you'll thank me (plus you'll feel like your living inside a Eddie Bauer catalogue for a bit which is always a plus)
 I have some seriously cool cowgirl/cowboy cousins.  Visiting them growing up I was always loved to visit them, especially when the rodeo was in town.  I grew up in a city and even though my dad worked for a company that specialized in cowboy-type things, my family was very city.

A few years ago Josh and I took our kids to visit the cool cowboy cousins and Josh caught the bug.  He came home and bought a few cowboy duds that he could sport when we went to rodeos, which we do regularly now.  I always tease him because that is pretty much the only time they come out, but I am glad they do because he looks totally hot in them (there is a definite "hotness" to cowboys, admit it.)
 Okay well to make a long story still pretty long, these boots make me feel a little country.  I know they are totally NOT cowgirl boots, but I FEEL a bit of cowgirl coolness when I wear them.  I like it (all you Texans please don't lynch me for comparing these to cowgirl boots...)

Okay onto something on a totally opposite subject, I was looking through this site today, and came across this collection of gorgeous clothing.  Can I tell you how in love with Valentino I am.  It's not that I would ever be able to afford anything Valentino, and I am pretty sure if I could afford it, I would not spend that much money on an article of clothing, BUT I truly believe that creating clothing is a form of artistic expression and these beautiful garments are definitely works of art.  I love how fashion forward, yet totally feminine Valentino always is.  Just thought I'd share some beauty with you today.
