Stampede has descended on Calgary. For 10 days cowboy hats, boots, and plaid are everywhere. This time of year I’m always on the look out for people who embrace the western theme with style and class. I’ve seen too many girls/women in cleavage/thigh bearing outfits that are usually about a size too small. And you don’t always have to wear a plaid shirt/denim combo either.
This summer white is right on trend and so is lace! Pair a beautiful lace dress, shirt, or skirt with some cowgirl-esque accessories and you are ready to ya hoo all day long! Without looking like you’ve been around the Stampede grounds one too many times, if you know what i mean. 😉
Check out my Alberta Bound pintrest board for the links to these photos and more Cowgirl style inspiration!
Western inspired looks don’t need to be saved for Stampede and rodeos. Change up your accessories you can rock it year round!
Ever since I saw these galaxy print leggings by Mitmunk I wanted a pair. I know I’m meant to own these since they always keep creeping back into my thoughts. Hopefully if I go to Vancouver this summer I will get to visit their studio and pick come out! Even if leggings aren’t your thing there are plenty of other options that use this galactic print. You can even paint it on your nails or make your own DIY print! So who’s ready to blast off into outer space?
If you want to give it a try here’s a great tutorial from Let’s Get Thrifty!
Now you don’t have to wait for the sun to go down to gaze at stars and constellations. You can take a little piece of the galaxy with you wherever you go!

Parrots are bright and fun! No mater how you wear them it’s a great way to start welcoming the warmer weather back into your life. Even if it still looks and feels like winter. sigh.
