She's Gone Country...

A good portion of my family is originally from Texas so the western cowgirl theme is always a fun way to uplift your life. You do not need to interpret it extremely literal but a little touch of western elements has never hurt anyone. One day, you can add some western flair and not only strut around in comfort you will also look stylish. Here are a few inspirations and ideas I have for you to add some "country" to your look or home and look cool while doing it.

I absolutely love this image found on the internet at I find the photo fun, whimsical and just simply inspiring. This can transition easily both into your closet and in your home. I love adding a fun pair of interesting boots to a summer dress to scoot around town. My Texan grandmother had a ton and I still wear them to this day.

Here is one of our pillows from our Ecarlate Boutique Etsy website. We found this print (found from Rainbow Fabrics on Etsy) to be fun, whimsical and flirty. Please note, that this can be duplicated. You can find this pillow and other items at

Another Rainbow Fabric print from Etsy and a buckaroo gal pillow made by yours truly. This has a different take (with the reds instead of blue). Again, this can be duplicated. You can find this pillow and other interesting items at

Here I Am!!!

I have been following blogs for awhile now but never had the courage to start my own until today. So, HERE I AM. This blog is intended to discuss topics of the home, fashion and life in general.

I have opened up an Etsy store a few months ago where I sell hand made pillows and other items. I have had a ton of fun creating the pillows and diving into the blogging process. You can visit my Etsy store at

Above is a pic of a pillow we created by using a Vintage burlap feed bag. The feed bag was purchased from a fellow Etsy seller Regina's Studio who was more than helpful and sells unique vintage and antique items. I like the element of surprise when it comes to home furnishing, accessories and of course the wardrobe. Enjoy, and don't forget to check out my Etsy store.
