Even Cowgirls Get the Blues

Dollar Store Sunnies, Denim Shirt: Walmart, Belt & Dress (worn as skirt): Goodwill, Cowboy Boots: Florence, ItalyThese short Italian cowboy boots called to me from a shop window while walking to meet friends at Spleen, one of my favorite bars in Florence. They usually showed FIFA games (in English) and had an insanely extensive drink menu, with pages of cocktails that were always half off for American girls. In short it was a great place and every time I wear these boots I think about Spleen and living in Florence and there’s a little twinge in my heart.

The 100% silk button up jumper caused heart twinges of a different type when I found it at Goodwill a few weekends ago, but that’s a whole other story. And if you are looking for a great book (that was later turned into a so-so movie) Even Cowgirls Get the Blues by Tom Robbins is a one of my favorites.

What pieces in your closet pull on your heartstrings?
