When walking around a college campus in Oregon there is something you don’t see very often: cowboy boots.
But there is one girl you can find walking around a college campus in Oregon in cowboy boots.
Just about everyday.
She has just a few pairs and has really created a style and personal look for herself.
Get the low down…
Name: Christine Swanson
Major: Studio Art
“Hanging out with friends, making new friends, going on adventures, painting, woodworking, pottery, hiking, horseback riding, gardening, talking about Jesus, singing, sunflowers, playing guitar, line-dancing, going on joy-rides in my pickup through the country, painting my nails, fishing, camping, and anything you can do outdoors!”
Who or what inspires you?
“I am inspired by the beautiful simple things in life; the colors of fall, a good conversation with a friend, being in God’s incredible creation. I am also inspired by genuine people and I love hearing their stories.”
Where do you like to shop?
“I love shopping at Anthropology and Urban Outfitters (when there is a sale rack), but I also love the treasure hunt of finding great things at thrift stores like Goodwill. I like the challenge of looking nice without draining my bank account. After all, I am a poor college student!”
Where is your outfit from?
Shirt: Urban Outfitters
Rings: Saturday market and rejects from Grandma’s collection
How would you describe your personal style?
“I love cowgirl boots (I have seven pairs) and flannel. I suppose I have a “country” kind of style. I also love to be comfortable but look nice at the same time. When it comes to jewelry I stick to wearing rings and I have quite the collection! When it is warmer outside sundresses and sandals are my friend. Also you cant go wrong with lace! Love that stuff.”
Why did you choose this outfit?
“I chose this outfit because it is comfortable and I feel good wearing it. Flannel, boots and a scarf feel nice on a cold day. There’s no way I am gonna catch a cold this fall!! I also wear three to four rings at a time on an average day, so if I got in a fight… I’d win.”
Who are your favorite designers?
I really love Anthropology. If I could only wear clothes from one store for the rest of my life this would be the store hands down!”
Any favorite trends?
I love that cowgirl boots are in now. I have always loved them so it is a bonus that they are actually in style now!!”
If you could raid anyone’s closet who’s would it be?
“Anna Bramson’s closet. This girl has got style. If I had to have a plan B I would go with raiding my sister Breanne’s closet because she is quite the fashionista herself and her closet is twice the size of mine. You better believe there’s some gold in there.”
I had nothing to do with that last answer…for the record.
It’s really what she said.
Like I said, she just has a few pairs…
Cowboy boots are great boots for fall. They can be layered over denim, tights, leggings.
You can also add a pair of fun boot socks for a little more sass.
Your options are endless.
They are also durable shoes; sure to keep your feet dry walking across a wet campus.
Who doesn’t like a good flannel?!
You can never go wrong layering a flannel for extra warmth on these cool fall days.
Paring it with a good denim pant; it’s it a win/win.
It’s also a perfect look for Christine’s love for the outdoors.
A good flannel makes me think of camping, roasting marshmallows and having a good time with friends.
I’m a huge fan of rings.
These turquoise rings add a pop of color to Christine’s outfit.
Adding a little bit of personality to any outfit can be achieved by using some fun accessories.
Christine’s love for nature and the great outdoors is evident in her choice of outfit.
It makes me want to curl up in front of a bonfire or go for a good hike with friends.
I think everyone should just start wearing cowboy boots.
Well maybe not everyone.
Don’t want to get ahead of myself here.
Anyways, it’s Halloween friends!
Go out and have a fun and safe night.
Stay stylish and things of that nature…
