What I Wore – National Finals Rodeo

Last week I was in Las Vegas for a work conference and the National Finals Rodeo was also going on, which is the Super Bowl for me! I love the NFR, it’s a small arena, close on the action, so many fun parties around town and the fashion is amazing! NFR is a fun event to dress up for!  Here’s what I wore, and likely these will all make repeats during Rodeo Houston, even if they are out of the norm for HLSR! 😉

Thursday night…denim tunic with sequin skirt peeking out, knee high suede books and layered necklaces.  I picked up this skirt in Round Top a couple of years ago from LaVida Loca Boutique (IG: thelavidalocaboutique) which is one of my favorite traveling stores (they were also at NFR and for locals and will be at Rodeo Houston & attend Nutcracker Market). The white bone cross is from there too. It is actually on a long chain and I looped it to be shorter, so can go either way.  The boots are Dolce Vita and were a TJ Maxx find!

Friday night attended the rodeo with a friend and a party after. This was my favorite of the weekend!  The (p)leather leggings are from Francesa’s, black tunic is the best ever – Lush from Nordstrom, fur jacket is several seasons old, but they are everywhere lately and booties are also a few seasons old. White squash blossom necklace is from Catillac Style. Squash’s were EVERYWHERE in the Vegas Cowboy Christmas shopping! Wish I had a full length shot of this outfit, should have taken a pic during the night!  #lessonslearned

Saturday night was back to the rodeo. This might be the perfect black dress, picked up for $34 during Nordy’s Anniversary Sale in the summer. It is 3/4 sleeve and boat neck, can be worn with wedges, heels, strappy dressy shoes AND boots!  I got this necklace from Accessorize in Style (IG: accessorize_instyle), they are friends I made working on the road. Crystal has great items in her shop, I always find several things I love and she is at all the stock shows and lots of Junior League holiday markets! Look them up!

Before I left, I added a fur vest, since it was a little chilly and this was perfect for being inside and outside that night. Fashion Posse (IG: fashion_posse) is a great account to follow for fun rodeo fashion inspiration and they snapped this pic Saturday night in  the MGM Gold Buckle Zone party.  Thank you for snapping and featuring my outfit and thank you friends for all of your sweet compliments!

Such a fun trip and I’m bummed to not be going back for finals weekend where World Champions are crowned!!  Maybe I should just hop a plane back!  But, if not Rodeo Houston is less than 100 days away!
