Stay Warm and Cozy in a Ladies Winter Coat!

It is not cool to look hot but freeze your butt off while doing so! Winter coats are often over looked. I know for awhile…I had maybe 3 coats. A full length coat for dressier affairs, a slightly shorter version or the full length coat and a jacket. These coats always seemed to be black. I felt that with black I was safe pairing it with anything I wore.

Boy was I wrong! Coats are available in an assortment of lengths, materials, styles and cuts! If you are decked out in a winter white pants suit, you may not want to pair that with a black pea coat. Nah! Instead, you would complete your look with a full length winter white wool coat!

Cowboys and anything related to them are regarded as romantic.

These cowboys wore boots to protect their feet from the long travels by horse. Cowboy boots

During that time, cowboy boots were usually worn by men and were made from 100 % cowhide. These were very functional and sturdy, perfect for walking and horseback riding in the rugged terrains of the Old West.

But now, these boots became a fashion item for women. They are not just made of cowhides but from many other different materials such as ostrich skins, snake skin, and crocodile hide.
