Rodeo Houston comes once a year and is the perfect excuse for new boots, a brand new pair of jeans, and turquoise jewelry for the rodeo. The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo impresses with the lineup of music and the amazing junk food; who can get enough?
Turkey legs, funnel cakes, barbecue stuffed potatoes, fried Oreos - the goods are all there. You don't have to dress up to attend, but you can dress the alternative, rodeo chic: amazing dresses, channeling your turquoise into your apparel instead of accessories and fringe - lots of fringe.
I absolutely love wearing chunky turquoise accessories; they're flattering and gorgeous on everyone. Why not channel your turquoise somewhere else? For instance, channeling the color on your purse. Instead of my accessories, I opted for a turquoise purse.
For your apparel, you can opt to wear tone-on-tone or neutrals with fun prints.
Jewelry with natural stones, turquoise and leather material can be layered together for a fun rodeo look.
Dusters and vests can be worn over dresses that look incredibly similar to slips. For a pulled-together look, belt it right at the waist. And instead of pairing it with a necklace, wear big earrings and a cuff. The look reminds me of Stevie Nicks of Fleetwood Mac. This boho chic look is a great alternative look for rodeo.
The ideal boutique for something like this would be Abejas Boutique with capes and dusters from the Australian-based brand Kite and Butterfly. I absolutely love their dusters and cover-ups to top off rodeo looks.
A new Houston-based designer created jewelry I thought ideal for rodeo. Christina Greene creates looks that are completely perfect for rodeo.
The Houstonian recently moved back from New York and will be hosting a booth at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Catch the booth for the perfect accessories to tie together your look.
