Navajo and Aztec prints are all the rage this year, page 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, there I’ve been less inclined to add the patterns to my wardrobe.

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

I love hats. They are such a personal reflection of style, viagra with so many shapes, colors and materials to choose from. And they’re ideal for bad hair days.

For years I was adamant that I couldn’t pull off a cowboy hat, until last summer I was goofing around and threw on a big ol’ Gus-style palm. I looked at Dad and made a face, and he looked at me and told me to find a mirror. Turns out, “Gus” hats work with my face shape – who would have guessed? Next step is a cool hat band, but that’s a post for another day…

Cowboy hats aren’t limited to wearing with jeans and boots, either. They can be the perfect accessory for a dress or skirt, in the right proportion and style.

A little side note on cowboy hat rules: Felt hats are for Labor Day through Easter (and special occasions), and straw/palm hats are to be worn from Easter to Labor Day only. The odd exception can be made for a June blizzard, but that’s it, people.

I could so relate to Danielle’s comment recently on Western Glamour about falling down on my exercise routine. It seems like for the past six weeks, page I’m barely home long enough to do laundry and re-pack, more about let alone exercise… or clean the house.

Two years ago, I started practicing yoga and found it’s benefited my shoulder and hip issues so much that it certainly doesn’t take many days off before I can feel the difference. I’ve also noticed an impact on my riding as it helps keep my breathing calm and body balanced.

The poor people in class likely don’t appreciate the days that I’m running from the barn to class without time for a shower, but I don’t think the horse minds when I get on him relaxed and more focused from yoga!

Here are a few ideas for mixing yoga and barn wear so you can fit in either place.
