Cowboy Winter Trends
By Amy Witt

It can be a bit heartbreaking to bid farewell to beautiful roping days and transition from cool breezy long sleeves to heavy Pendleton’s, wool socks with always boot season, but let's concentrate on the bright side — Winter is offering some seriously chic and handsome boots. Ariat, Justin, Frye, and Old Gringo will demand you to ride high for your wild and fashionable side. Grab a hot caramel apple spice from Starbucks and hit the arena or ranch in full fashionable tasteful force!
A must have for this season for both men and women are biker jackets, leather jackets, embellished sweaters, Navajo and Native American inspired prints and art, fur parkas, army green, military, and sailor inspired jackets and pea coats, paired with a silk scarves while adding a pop of color, as well as, to keep you cozy when running a steer down the arena or for the ranch hand doctoring cattle. A cozy, fur-trimmed hood is always must!
We will be seeing a plethora of boots in turquoise, silver, and red!  Jewelry of all stones, silver, and gold will always be large and in charge. You can never go wrong with fur and gold ensembles in your wardrobe.
I am probably the biggest fan of vintage Pendleton’s, men’s wear, and denim on denim that you will ever meet.  Denim and denim is always hot and women steal a pair of your boyfriend or husband’s jeans and rock ‘em for that boyfriend inspired jean. Wrangler makes an impeccable denim men’s shirt – If you want to spend a little more, True Religion and Lucky Brand design classy denim button-ups for both men and women.
You can usually find brand new Pendleton’s at vintage or thrift stores that not only will save you huge bucks but allow you to be lovely and fetching. Speaking of vintage and thrift stores take advantage and embrace vintage and thrift stores especially while traveling because every vintage and thrift store is different. You can gather quality, very unique, and admirable sweaters, jackets, denim shirts, and jackets, as well as, silk scarves that no one else will have while not busting your wallet with all these roping and rodeos to enter!
With all of Winter’s opulent styles make a grand statement in and out of the arena, add a gilded sweatshirt to your repertoire, or step out in a fur staple and killer boots, and kill ‘em in the winners’ circle.
Dress to kill for 2013…Happy New Year!

Eight days into 2013 and I hope you are having a peachy time thus far!
2013 def. has a lot in store for California Dreamin and myself.
I wanted to attach a few pictures of my Pendleton collection...which isn't even a quarter of what I really have.
Most of them I wear and usually misplace or are at the dry cleaners.
I have been collecting these over the years from thrift stores and vintage stores mostly thrifting buying for $1.00.
If you look closely at the tags you can see the generations of the tags and how they have transformed.
Currently, Hurley is collabing with Pendleton to make flannels gearing toward the surf/skate industry.
My collection ranges from rodeo shirts to Christmas looking sweaters,
to jackets and even to jackets with shoulder pads and wooden buttons.
To sum it up, I am obsessed with Pendletons...I love m
Below, I also wanted to share some of my instagram pics...Follow me at : @caliiforniadreamin
The Trail Buster brochure is actually my Grandfather Lloyd Witt's
brochure for his clothing and leather wear line, Witt Craft.
Fashion, design, and the love for western wear goes beyond a passion, it boils in my veins.
