Since I started blogging, I have always wanted to take outfit photos on train tracks; it just seemed like the coolest, most fashion-blogger thing to do! Now, there are plenty of railways in Southern California, but most are either still active, too far away, inaccessible or otherwise undesirable. These tracks were not exactly ideal, but, hey, a style blogger’s gotta do what a style blogger’s gotta do! Am I right?? ;)
The details: red & white stripe dress (Old Navy) // western boots (thrifted, refashion) // heart necklace (Target) // drop necklace (gift) // red bead bracelet (gift) // bangle bracelets (old) // silver leaf ring (American Eagle, old) // turquoise earrings (gift)
And now on to the Sassy Cowgirl Boot Refashion! I found these leather boots at the thrift store (for a steal at only $12.50!) and knew right away they were the perfect candidates for a fun & easy DIY painted boots refashion!
I am also super excited to announce that I am one of the new Craft Test Sidekicks for Cut Out + Keep! This means I get to test out super cool craft products, review them and share my projects. My first Craft Test was to use the Jacquard Fabric Paints – which I LOVED!
I used the very pretty, iridescent Lumiere line of colors to coat the boots in copper and my own mixed turquoise, and painted the details with purple, copper and more turquoise. The paints applied to the leather smoothly and easily and dried like a dream! To see more of the transformation and learn how to do it yourself, you can see the full tutorial here.
Have you ever thought of painting a pair of boots? What would you paint??
As always, thanks for reading! :)
