Quick Warning** There are so many events going on in the next few weeks around rodeo, stampede, and outdoor events, I hazard to say you’re going to see a lot of hats and western inspired wear! Ponoka Stampede is going on as we speak, ready to roll into Canada’s 150th birthday celebrations this weekend, I felt like a fun and casual outfit option was in order to be rodeo ready.
I found most of this outfit at Winslow Rowe– a Canadian online shop, just add in some shorts and my dad’s old belt and I deem this outfit rodeo ready- well ok, daytime rodeo because if you’re staying out at night in Alberta, you might want to keep some jeans in the truck to change into, darn mosquitos!!
Other pointers to getting Stampede ready if this is your first time heading out, shop your own closet and if need be find and add accessories with a western vibe. This might include turquoise jewelry, fringe anything or a hat. Try to add only a few of those items on the list versus layering everything on. If you feel like you’re verging on Halloween costume vibe- you definitely gone too far. It’s also the time of year to try something you usually might not wear, so go forth and wear those zebra print cowhide booties I say 🙂
