The Cutest Little Cowgirl In Texas

Annelie has a pair of pretty pink cowgirl boots. Once upon a time, they belonged to her big-footed sister, who was never able to wear them because her feet were too big. We were completely shocked when 18 month old Annelie dug them out of the dress-up box and put them on all by herself.

And of course, once she discovered the joy that is a pair of pink cowgirl boots, she has never taken them off. I actually have to check on her the second I know that she has fallen asleep at night, because more often than not, she is wearing the boots in her bed (I take them off before I put her in bed, but I'm telling you, this little cowgirl looooooves her boots).

She especially loves how they click across the kitchen floor.

I'm not a cowgirl, myself. In fact, I'm far from it. Country music - hate it. Western wear - no thanks. Texas - put me back in California any day. Wide open spaces - I'll take the beach.

(this is her "say cheese" face)

But Annelie is our little Texan, being the only member of our family born here in this BBQ-loving, cowpoke state. And I have to say, that as much as I love wearing flip flops (the preferred footwear of a California native), it is pretty cute to see my little Texas miss wearing her pretty pink cowgirl boots.

For little cowgirls everywhere, here is an Etsy tribute:

I love the little cowgirl outfits found in ChewChew's Closet. From skirts, rhumba pants with ruffled bums, to matching shirts, this shop has your little cowgirl covered. And of course, there is an equally adorable line for the little cowboy in your life, as well.

You can find this skirt and shirt at http://chewchewscloset.etsy.com

I'm loving this felt Callie the Cow hair clip from Cutesie Clips.

Completely adorable. You can find this clip and a bunch of other equally adorable hand-stitched felt clips at www.cutesieclips.etsy.com

And last, this Blond Cowgirl print from Carla Sonheim is one of my absolute favorites from her shop (although her whole shop is the stinking cutest shop ever, in my humble opinion).


I just love that little girl's expression!! And that little horse is pretty adorable, too! You can find this print, as well as a whole shop full of the cutest artwork around, at www.carlasonheim.etsy.com

Happy Trails!

xoxo,

Too cute! And yes Carla Sonheim is the best...my daughter had a similar relationship with a pair of leopard print wellies (my grandma is a southern fran drescher in the nanny) . All good while we lived in NYC, not so much in AZ. Good luck getting her out of them.

So adorable! My little Texan ran around with a red bandanna all day yesterday. No concern that it did not match the rest of his outfit. Your cowpoke, on the other hand, is wonderfully color coordinated.

Oh, my goodness. You made me flash back to county-fair days when my girls were little. A princess just has to have a pair of cowgirl boots.

awww now you know she's got it bad when she's sleeping in them! She's so adorable!!

Brayden attempted to do that one time with his baseball cleats - but when I went to pull them off in his sleep he kicked me - which I can tell you, getting kicked with baseball cleats is NOT a fun experience, so needless to say Mommy put an end to that!

Who wouldn't love some pink, cowgirl boots? I was born and raised in Texas (moved to Arkansas when I was 23). I love wearing a cowboy hat, but only to Longhorn football games, and I love love love cowboy boots, but don't like them on me.

As far as country music goes? GAG! Oh, and if Texas had scenery like where I am now, I'd be back there in a heart beat. Can't beat the view of the Ozarks from my window though.
