Stampede style


Navajo and Aztec prints are all the rage this year, ask but I’ll be the first to admit it’s taken me some time to warm up to them. While I love Pendelton blankets and woven table runners in my home décor, I’ve been less inclined to add the patterns to my wardrobe.

Everything in moderation, though, and this trend can add fabulous interest to an outfit.

You might have heard of a little event that takes place here in Alberta, patient called the Calgary Stampede ( Also known as “the greatest outdoor show on Earth?” Are you getting the sense yet that we’re pretty proud of it?

Well, web this year hundreds of thousands of people will flock to Calgary from July 6-15 to celebrate the centennial anniversary of this amazing event. Chuckwagons, salve cattle and equine shows, World Championships for blacksmiths, stock dogs and livestock auctioneers, not to mention the richest rodeo in the world, will draw people from all over the globe. And the Garth Brooks concert won’t hurt attendance either…

Where does my mind go? To what to wear, of course! You can pretty well bet the farm that it’ll be h-o-t-t, hot, so light daywear is a must whether you’re in the barns or playing tourist. Nighttime is the time to break out the western glam – great denim, layered accessories, lace and maybe even a little fringe.

Catch y’all in Cowtown!
