After a week spent in Colorado, it’s strange to be back in New York City amidst the crazy, busy, hustle & bustle of this isle I now call home. I’m finding myself craving the elements of laid back, Western style that make a place like Beaver Creek seem so comforting and beautiful. Rich leathers, turquoise beads, worn denim, fringe accents, and soft hues are just some of the things that I love about being out West. My ideal Western style would be a mix of high & low end as showcased here in this Polyvore set. And imagine how much more chic had I been doing the below horseback riding in the above outfit than what I was really wearing (tee, jeans, tennis shoes…quelle horreur!)
I have tons more Colorado photos to share from my vacation, but in the meantime…have a chambray button down you are looking to have go the extra mile? Check out 3 ways to style it!
