Here in Idaho we may be thousands of miles away from the lights of New York City or the western fashion of Texas, New Mexico and the like, but let's go ahead and just end that barrier right now. We know we live in "God's Country"...right? Let's kick our fashion frenzy into high gear.
We are ready! Idaho and the Northwest are ready to be seen and heard girlfriends!
As I shopped the halls of the WESA Denver Market over the weekend, I made a strong decision to up the game, to put us on the map, to raise the fashion bar. We can do this, we will do this.
I know we've all said "I just don't know where I'd wear that too". Come on admit it, you've said it. So let's just make a little pact and stop worrying about "if I can wear that", or "I don't think I can pull that off". Get yourself out of that silly little box. I'll give you the match if I have too. Burn that box down! Throw it in the burn barrel and don't look back. Every single one of us deserves to look fancy, feel fancy and stand out, even if we are just grocery shopping. You can wear fringe to the grocery store. There are no rules against that.
The Frosted Cowgirls is turning up the notch. We are bringing in new exciting, super fun, and fancy lines. You will soon see designs by Rodeo Quincy, StS Ranchwear, Liberty Black boots, Miss Macy boots, Silverado (Ahh I'm dying over this), Cowgirl Justice, and so much more. Like tons, and tons. We really got our serious shopping on. We will be exploding with those one of kind items, those statement pieces. The accessories you plan your outfit around.
It's happening. The "frosting" is getting spiffy. Let's do this. Let's make our mark. We will all be "frosted" with a whole bunch of sprinkles.
Your friend in fashion~
It's right around the corner! The Western Industry's biggest fashion event (well in our opinion)! The Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Vegas! What are you going to wear?
It's huge! NFR fashion is fun, it's unique, it's fashion forward, it's hats, boots, belts, jewelry...lots of jewelry. It's everything and anything. It's fashion at it's finest!
Every year I look forward to getting styled up and ready to hit the big city. (With about 4 suitcases in tow). It's the boots I'm telling you! They take up lots of room. :)
This year, I'm even more excited then ever before! The Frosted Cowgirls is hosting a big NFR styling party featuring Jessie Jarvis (fashionista beauty)! Jessie is a fashion blogger, who now works for The Boutique Hub. Her style is amazing and she's the sweetest little ranchers wife ever! If I were you, I'd plan on attending this event! October 22nd in New Plymouth! You will leave with outfit picks, style ideas and possibly a couple tickets to ride the biggest Ferris Wheel ever during your stay in Vegas.
Watch our Facebook and Instagram pages for style inspiration and then come join us on Saturday!
Let's all sparkle in Vegas this year!
Lots of Love~
Definition of a Frosted Cowgirl (in the words of my five year old daughter)- "You have a cake and it's okay, good, but not delicious. Then you add some frosting, maybe some sprinkles and boom! It's so much better and so pretty. It's the icing on cake"
"Frosting" Cowgirls since 2010.
Grab those pens, pencils and paper---Back to School we go!!
For our family, this is the beginning of the school adventure. Our Raelee heads off to her first day of kindergarten and this momma's heart is breaking...like in a million pieces. Why does time go so fast? I swear I blinked. I know you've all heard this a thousand times, "they are only little for awhile". It's true friends, it's so true. I'm having a hard time letting go.
Raelee on the other hand is beaming, she can hardly wait to start this journey. I'm trying to act excited, really trying. Tonight while heading into the "Open House" I grabbed her hand to walk into the school, she said "Mom, you don't need to hold my hand". What!!? I couldn't hold back the tears, I'm still welling up just typing that.
Ok so now that you all know how ridiculous I am, let's focus on some fun Back to School fashion. If there's one thing I've passed onto my little ones, it's the love of fringe, bling, and anything fancy. Together, Raelee and I, have laid out all our "Back to School" outfit options. She has tried them on, modeled them and finally after much debate made her decision on what she will be wearing as she walks the halls on the first day of school (her poor Dad doesn't stand a chance).
Raelee has chosen a Frosted Cowgirl favorite new arrival! A bright pink aztec printed cardigan with fringe. This comes as a set which includes a tank top and necklace. She is going to wear this with black leggings and her new favorite sandals.
School Styles are so fun and trendy right now. Great Floral, aztec, and geometric patterns are must have's! Of course fringe and faux suede will still be fall hits!
Good luck to all our fellow students! Learn lots and have a great year at school!

I know everyone is wrapped up in the "Back to School" craze, school shopping and more, but hey, let's not cut summer short just yet!
If you are like us, we are gearing up for our fun filled County Fair's! We are headed back to our roots to the land of snowcone's, cotton candy, corndogs, animals in the barn, and laughter covering the fairgrounds.
Both Cody and I grew up participating in the 4-H and FFA program. We strongly agree these programs are what made us the hard working, agriculture business, farm owner cowboy and cowgirl we are today. Like us, our little Raelee is so excited to be joining the rank as an actual 4-H Cloverbud next year. We are pretty excited as well!
If you're like us and the fair wardrobe planning has begun, here are some ideas to get you going on our favorite fair looks! If you're heading to the concert, rodeo, or show at the fair, here's your fashion guide:
*White Lace Romper- $30
*Liberty Black Tall Boots- $295
This says "Country Chic" in so many ways!
Ooh and this fun look! Throw on some jeans or cute shorts and add this graphic tee! "Not all who wander are lost". Fun jewelry and wedges make this a complete "Night at the County Fair" look!
Enjoy your trip to the local county fair! Take in the last of the Summer fun and stay in style while you're there!
xoxo~ You're the Sweetest
