Where I'm from, the Calgary Stampede is the most celebrated time of year. For ten whole days, Calgarians deck out in their best Western wear with pride. We're talking TONS of denim, cowboy hats, boots, and of course, can't leave home without the plaid.
For this outfit post, I wanted to shake things up a bit whilst still embracing the midwestern style. Accessories definitely made this look and although I don't have an actual cowboy hat (I know right?!) this felt fedora did the trick. Braided leather belts and paisley handkerchiefs are also a Stampede must.
For locals such as myself, Stampede has a tendency to become repetitive as the years go by, but some things just don't ever get old (I'm definitely talking about the addicting mini donuts here). Good company also does make up for the bajillion dollars spent on carnival food and midway prizes. All in all, I'm glad to be in my hometown for the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth.
