The Texas Tuxedo Rides Again


Howdy there partners! Today I have decided to brave the horrendously cold winds, intermittent deluges, and poor photographic lighting to celebrate my American roots with my version of an All-American classic from the Lone Star state. The denim-on-denim look, otherwise known as the Texas Tuxedo,  has been enjoying a bit of a resurgence over the past few seasons. Though denim with denim was at one point firmly placed on my "not going to happen" list (as were skinny jeans, printed trousers, orange lipstick, and gray hair, all of which I now sport with pride), the "give it a try" neurological pathway in my brain seems to have been activated now that I am in my forty-first year. Go figure.
