The Calgary Stampede
The best thing about Calgary in summer, other than floating down the river and all the many patios, is The Calgary Stampede. Us Calgarian's await for the 12 day event all year. I am a true city girl, but when Stampede rolls around I brush off my cowboy boots, pull out my cowboy hat and plan for some cute Stampede outfit ideas. The main reason I go down to the Stampede grounds is for the food. Every year the menu changes, from deep fried Oreo's, to ice cream mini-donuts Popsicle. It's something I get so excited about! Of course the rides and the games are always a great time (if you don't mind standing in line for sometime), but for the adults, the beer gardens and tents is where to be. With live music at the Coke Stage, and everyone looking their Stampede best, the Stampede grounds are always a great time.
My girl Rachel Antony from Frankly Ray , who also happens to be a fashion blogger, put a couple looks together for Stampede. Outfits can all be found at our fave boutique in Calgary, 27 Boutique. Rachel kept it classy with a white lace dress and a not so typical cowboy hat. While for myself, this Stampede I wanted to pull off a different look. A high wasted jean skirt, crop top, and a fringe vest with beautiful detailing. To top off both looks, we both wore our cowboy boots (of course).
