Scenes on the Side

Oftentimes I find myself thinking of alternate names for the blog.  Yesterday I came up with 'Me and my Jean Jackets'.  I love a jean jacket.  I have 5 or 6 of them.  A couple denim vests too. It's a sickness that I blame entirely on my years working for the Gap.  If I'm not in jeans, I'm carrying or wearing a denim jacket.  Safety blanket, I guess.

Anyway so we're out wandering about the other day during Adventures in Catsitting and it hits me:  I look like a cowboy.  Well a cowboy that's thinking about defecting to the other side (not that side. the indians side...is it pc to say indians anymore?) to partake in the fringe boot action.  So I mention to the Chef who proceeds to collapse in half laughing.  'It's the look on your face,' he says 'you're dead serious.' I'm all 'I do look like a cowboy, don't I?!?' Of course he reassures me I don't, but secretly I kind of don't even care if I do.  That's what lazy days are for:  tossed up hair, disheveled outfits, fringe boots and cowboy attire.  Whatevs.  You only live once. Go fringe-y cowboy or go home.

I was scanning through the pictures the other day busting up at the goodies he captured.  I can't wait for the weekend:   home of the no comb zone.  Bring it.

I have no idea.  All I want to know is where was the jean jacket.
Look out for that kid:  he wants his two dollars!
(please tell me you've seen better off dead)
I might need two pairs.  These are going to go down in the Fringe Files Hall of Fame.
Beam me up
I miss my long bangs.  Grow hair grow.

The boots need to go down in the fringe hall of fame. And your hair looks super long in the last pic! Feel like I keep growing mine and not getting anywhere.

You are too hilarious! I'd say maybe a cowgirl--wanting to be an indian in the best kind of way. I think you are making pocahontus proud. And I agree with Katie, these boots do belong in the hall of fame. Love the outfit.

Our cowgirl! Ha. As far as jean jacket, I think it is a staple. I have no idea how anyone could not own one...2...5....

Judy C said...

I think the "Indians" were much better designers of clothing than cowboys with their weird shirts. But I do like the looks of a pair of cowboy boots and jeans. No shirt. Oh well.

Courtney Erin said...

Honestly, if you did look like a cowboy, wouldn't that just be pretty sweet? And, holy mother of god, those boots are amazing. Amazing.

Oh my CHRIST those boots. While you do look like you're in a cowboy/Indian conundrum, it's AMAZING and I don't ever want you to stop it.

You don't look anything like a cowboy, but you do look awesome in those amazing boots. I love them!!

Poppies and Sunshine said...

Why is it so hard for me to find boots that I love?! I see boots I like, like these fabulous fringe boots! But, if I were to go searching for them I am sure I wouldn't find them. I think my fall boot search will last until Spring. I hope you are enjoying a carefree weekend!
