Closet Hillbilly

08 May 2013

Contrary to popular belief, not everyone in Texas is... southern. I happen to be one of them. I am mercilessly teased about not eating red meat (read: anything with eyelashes). I do not in fact know how to do the Boot Scootin Boogie. I rode horses all throughout my childhood, but it involved a riding jacket, crop pants and equestrian boots. Not a cowboy hat in sight. There is, however, a little bit of yeehaw way down deep in my soul.

For one, I love me some bull riding. Put a dirty, bowlegged cowboy on the back of a half ton animal with a rope tied around its most sensitive bits, and I suddenly become a whoopin' and hollerin' Child of Dixie. I have no idea where that comes from. I believe it's one of those 'stand there and look pretty' kinds of things where you aren't really interested in the man per se, but just the idea of it all. The behavior itself is inexcusable.
I also have a sick, sick obsession with a little show on the History Channel called Swamp People. Again, real life people in the USofA hunting alligators in canoes, eating squirrels and requiring the use of subtitles for their butchering of the English language manage to keep me riveted to the TV for an entire hour a week. A real life gator hunt has even made its way to my bucket list.
And by real life, I mean in a separate, non canoe boat many, many feet away from the actual gator killing. Very hands off.


  1. I really enjoy your blog. Your style is somewhat similar to mine, but different enough to inspire! Plus I love the way you shop (I am a thrifter and HUGE bargain hunter myself!)

  2. Score on the thrifted shirt! Love it :)

  3. cute look! I love boho chic looks, and it totally looks comfy!

  4. No offense but your fashion style reminds me of days when I was in the 90’s. Oh I miss those days. I love wearing loose pants and blouse back then. And I find your belt really cute! Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Anyway, just be yourself coz’ each of us is born to be different.

  5. You really are a distinctive southerner. How did you overcome not eating red meat your entire life? I have known a lot of people in your area love to eat such food. They even look for a recipe of it in other places where they happen to stay for a short time only.

  6. I love your top! You look so beautiful.

  7. Ah yes, I feel the same way about living in Oklahoma. I hate country music, I don't say ya'll... BUT, there are a few wonderful country things that I can get into. Bull riding is one of them - it's crazy!

    Love that pretty blouse!
