Saddle Up

CFR 2021

Yee-haw! Today is the start of Canadian Finals Rodeo at Red Deer’s Westerner Park cowgals, and I’m guessing you’re on the hunt for all the denim, leather, turquoise, lace, and fringe that your heart desires. Well, The Great Indoors is the place to be.

Get your turquoise fix with this gorgeous Blair Gemstone Necklace from Joydrop (they have a ton of turquoise jewellery, including studs, chokers, and my fave, hoops). And we can’t forget the suede and fringe. Enter: the Fringe Cross Body Bag from our leather besties, Boutique of Leathers/Open Road. Don’t miss the gorgeous wall of fringed purses at Pretty MADE Things, either!

For all you boho babes, you’ll love this Puff-Sleeve Babydoll Dress from American Eagle. Then, slide on a hidden wedge. These adorable boots from Boathouse will have you ready to two-step at the cabaret. Lastly, this outfit would look great paired with a suede coat and some thick tights for added warmth.

I not only love the length of this denim dress from H&M, and I also love how it’s belted, which is uber-flattering. You could even swap the built-in belt for a leather one if you prefer. H&M also has adorable, oversized denim dresses as well, if you want something flowier. Pair your denim dream dress with their patterned scarf or even a colourful bandana (Psssst! Ardene or Claire’s, stat!)

Additionally, these Free People boots from Hudson’s Bay are SO adorable and can be worn year-round (denim shorts, hello)! They also come in black if the bone colour is too risky for you. The metal toe is the perfect accent.

Top it all off with this floppy hat from Bootlegger.

This look is versatile enough to wear to any event, from barrel racing to the cabaret.

Flare jeans are all the rage, and I love this grey corduroy high-rise pant from American Eagle paired with their smocked blouse.

Accessorize with these Turquoise Hearts and Feather Hoop Earrings from Pandora, and this paisley scarf from Ardene. You could even throw on a duster for added boho flair.

Insider’s tip: If you’re wanting to stock up on real denim, American Eagle, Below the Belt, Bootlegger, Edge Clothing, and PSEUDIO are where you want to be!
