Cordovan Cowboy Boots and Mismatched Shoes

Pigtails loves shoes.
(I'm not sure where she gets that from)
Sometimes I find her wearing Princess Sparkles' boots, 
Camo's flip flops, or even my platform heels.
But wearing other peoples' shoes gets boring.
Now she's moved on to wearing multiple shoes at the same time!
It's a fashion statement.


STRIPED NURSING TANK TOP - Motherhood Maternity
CREAM CARDIGAN, BLACK LEGGINGS - Old Navy
NECKLACE - GS Lillian
CORDOVAN COWBOY BOOTS - Thrifted


I've been wearing simple outfits lately.  But now that I have an infant I have to be practical with my outfit choices.  Not only do I need to be able to nurse easily, but I also want to be comfy.  This nursing top is great because it has an elastic neck you can just pull down.  The necklace is another fave I ordered from Shelly at GS Lillian.  And the cordovan cowboy boots are thrifted from Goodwill.  I saw them and immediately fell in love!

Pigtails models her fashion statement.

I usually don't buy used shoes from Goodwill since they always seem to have brand new ones, but these cowboy boots were just too good to pass up!  I can't believe someone gave up a treasure like these babies.  And with all the great shoe purchases I've been making at GW, maybe I should be wearing two different shoes at one time!!!

You still look chic even when going for a simple look. That necklace is such a darling. I know how hard it is to look nice when nursing. There are'nt that many nursing friendly clothes around that look really good. You're always a fabulous fashionista, nothing seems to deter you from looking great.

Love this!! I am on the look out for vintage boots too!! Glad you scored your size!That is always tricky. The shoe mismatch is so typical and sweet. My little big man did that and he is 6 and still will do it with socks!! They are original and demonstrating their unique flair!! LOL

Love the height of the shaft on your cowboys! Typically I see a lot of boots that hit at the ankle so loving the uniqueness of these!

Hello Claire! You look fantastic, I cannot believe your baby is already a month old, you look like you are back to your original size! Amazing :)

Terri said...

I'm glad that someone is having good luck with shoes at Goodwill. I've been having a long dry spell, without finding any shoes...

Those boots are wonderful. And Pigtails may have started a new trend.

Wearing two pairs at once kinda ensures that you get to wear more of your shoes. Unfortunately, you really gotta make sure the heel length is the same, haha.

Great boots! I'm not big on thrifting shoes since it's kind of toss up how long they'll survive, however if I ever found such great cowboy boots, I'd grab them in an instant.
