Restyle & Rewear : 25 year old Cowboy Boots
This year I am determined to buy far less clothes than I did last year. I am aiming to rewear and restyle as many outfits as I am able to from my existing wardrobe. I will be writing about my endeavors on this blog so you can keep up with me to see if I fulfill my goals!
February Restyle & Rewear: Vintage Cowboy Boots
For my first rewear post I have pulled out my 25 year old cowboy boots! Bought in R Soles in the kings road in the early 90’s (possibly 1994) They were expensive but remember this was my pre family era I only had myself to look after! However they have lasted and lasted and will go on for years to come, an investment buy. You can see a similar pair here for sale today for £350 pounds!

Take one pair of 25 year old R Soles Cowboy Boots…
So last weekend we spent a chilled afternoon together and popped into a local pub for a Sunday roast. I combined it with a quick photo shoot,and I do mean a really quick one, it was freezing!
From my wardrobe I pulled out a 2 year old Zara dress, my cowboy boots and a jumper, jacket and scarf, layered everything together and off we went…

Add in a 1 year old Zara silver studded black wool Jacket…
My Mum bought me this tailored black wool jacket. A brilliant buy from the Zara Sale, regular readers will know know she lives in Florida. One of the best thing about sales in Florida (for obvious reasons) is the coats and jackets are always left at the end and reduced to fabulous prices whereas, its the opposite in the UK. We are always left with skimpy summer dresses and t-shirts on the bargain sale rail in the middle of winter!
…and a 2 year old Zara grey embroidered folk Dress.
I bought this dress in 2017, they also produced it in white. I have worn it many times since then, in both the Winter and Summer months. It is beautifully made (unlike a lot of Zara garments) fully lined in a fine cotton, heavily embroidered with super details on the sleeves. I wore it over some thick opaque black tights and a turtle neck jumper.

Nothing new at all, job done I say, what say you?
Similar cowboy boots to those I am wearing, but much much cheaper!
