Nouveau rodeo: layered graphic top and chambray shirt with skinny jeans, ankle boots, and a baker boy cap

It’s been a long time since Robin and I went to the Cloverdale Rodeo – an annual event here in Vancouver that takes place over the May long weekend – mostly because it always seems to get rained out!!

But with hardly a cloud in the sky and temperatures into the upper twenties (that’s over 75º for my American readers!) we knew we were guaranteed a lovely outing…so we spent Saturday afternoon enjoying the sights and sounds of a genuine country fair!!

I could have gone “all in” with a cowboy hat and boots – believe me, we saw plenty of those! – but that look felt just a little too cliché to me.  So I went for subtler western touches in my ensemble instead, by pairing black skinny jeans with my favourite olive suede booties (they’ve been popping up a lot on the blog lately, haven’t they?) and layering a chambray shirt over my graphic mesh top.

And speaking of faves??  This baker boy cap is all that right now…I have yet to put together an outfit that I couldn’t make just a little bit cuter-slash-cooler by wearing it!! 😉
