Rodeo Runway

I experienced what I like to call, a real 'country day' yesterday.
I went to my first ever Rodeo!

After a short 130 km drive, we found ourselves in a colourful country town called Julia Creek. I would describe it as one of the little towns that you dream of stopping through while on a road trip - it had gorgeous character with its little country cafe and local pub/hotel and friendly residents.

We started the day with lunch at the cafe, then checked out the race day. The afternoon was spent at the pub, and then the real country fun started - the rodeo! I loved watching the professional bull riders..although a few of them ended up in the hospital (!) Ouch..

I couldn't help but feel that I wanted to dress the part! This morning I went straight online and started to check out all the flannels and plaid shirts I could buy to get right into the country spirit of things. I'm going to be prepared for when the local show is on!

I'm still going to have a fashionable spin on the outfit, of course. Here are some ideas....

Maybe not a good idea to show the abdo - but it looks cute!

I love MKOs flannel style!

It's true what they say, life is what you make it. I will look back at these years of my life, living out in the country, and think about all the experiences...and be glad I embraced it!

  1. I've been wearing the flanny for years AMF. Glad you're converting.
