Red Rose of Kansas
This jacket is one of my favorites. I love, love, love embroidery. A while back Coldwater Creek had a special line of clothing that was a step above the rest of their clothing. I got this on sale and have never regretted getting it. I probably should have worn this on Visible Monday as it was very visible! I wore it with my new cowboy boots. It was embroidery overload and I was so happy wearing it. I kept my jewelry to a minimum today. The cross is one from a company, Morgan Dane, that attempted to compete with Silpada. I like the large bail because it can be used on a wide variety of necklaces. Unfortunately, Morgan Dane went out of business this year. I really liked a lot of their jewelry more than Silpada. The necklace is one I got at Fashion Bug.

Patti @ Not Dead Yet Style asked if you could wear boots like these in Florida. I say yes, it's an attitude and if you have it, no matter where you live, you can carry it off. I think Patti would look fab in them! I see a lot of women here in the winter wearing oversize sweaters, leggings, and cowboy boots (although taller than the ones I have.) When I first got them I told my husband that I felt like a kid again with their first pair of cowboy boots. When you are a kid, you just don't want to take them off, even to go to bed. It's wonderful to feel like a kid again. Do you have something that makes you that happy?
