• 2,000,000 Views and Happy (Belated) 4th Anniversary! - "John's Blog Space" has surpassed 2 million hits all-time (Blogger/Blogspot statistics) yesterday! Thanks to all of you for contributing to these numbers! Since Blogger/Blogspot unveiled its own stat engine in June 2008, very few blogs have reached the 2M view count. So I am very pleased to receive so much attention from such a worldwide audience. Can't say enough- thank you so much for contributing to this milestone for me! Also, my blog celebrated its 4th anniversary back on Wednesday, January 23, 2013.

• I May Be Idle... - ...but I am not "dead." I do contribute to my other blogs as well as just living life. So do remember to keep checking in to see my latest posts here on "John's Blog Space" and my other blogs.

• Over time, the "Car Style" label will not be discontinued, but posts will not take on the "Car Style" name. It was originally intended to be about how I think certain vehicles look. Because of spam comment concerns, however, I have not discussed this topic as much as I used to. Some old "Car Style" posts will be deleted with newer versions just to keep the topic alive on John's Blog Space.

• Some of this blog's old blog posts will be edited and/or deleted. Many of them are old Gran Turismo posts that will be moved over to "John's Gran Turismo Space." So I invite you to visit JGTS to get your fill of Gran Turismo commentary from me.

• My blog will take on a new theme in the near future. The current theme is called "Sea of Stars." The new theme will not really be an overall change to the look of this blog. However, I am working on something to give this blog some new life.

• Sidebar Updates - My Cafepress widget and Twitter widget have both been updated. Be sure to look at each of the items I've provided to you. Don't forget also to take advantage of any offers I have for all of you. Please help yourself now that you're here.

• New Search Bar - I am experimenting with a new search bar. This search bar will allow you to search for items not only in this blog, but in my others as well. Feel free to use this new search bar to your advantage. I may, however, go back to the old one and leave this newer one behind if I am unable to make the absolute most of it.

• Have You Visited My StyleSpace Blog Yet? - Visit stylespacebyjbm.blogspot.com to check out my fairly new blog devoted to fashion. StyleSpace is all about anything and everything regarding fashion. Diverse topics, diverse opinions... it is not your average "fashion" blog.

• Joined ShopSense - If you see any ShopStyle widgets, that is because I joined ShopSense, their affiliate program. This will help my fashion lovers to find more items based on relevant material in my blog posts. That leads to the next point...

• "An Important Amazon Note" is now "Affiliate Notes" - "An Important Amazon Note" now falls under a new name. It still has information regarding other affiliate programs I've signed up for. Even though it pertains to Amazon, it also includes other programs I've taken part in; and so I have to change up the info.

• Layout Changes - Incremental changes to the current layout will be made over a certain amount of time. The whole blog will have a much different appearance as the changes are being made. Forgive me if the blog appears to be messy- all I am doing is making changes in a slow and steady manner. The new Social Bar is now below the header (which I was trying to go for all along).

• "Like" Me on Facebook! - Have you "liked" my Facebook fan page? If not, and if you have Facebook, I have an easier-to-remember link. Just search "TheJohnMarine" on Facebook or just click this: http://www.facebook.com/TheJohnMarine to visit my Fan Page. Also, don't forget to add my Google+ page to your Circles. Links to all can be found at the top of my blog in the Social Bar.

• Important Note Regarding Comments Posted Here - Any suspicious comments posted on my blog will be deleted promptly. It makes no sense that the majority of comments posted here are mostly from non-genuine people (spammers, bots, etc.). It makes no sense that I get so many hits from so many people, but only so few (mostly spammers and loyal readers) actually respond to my work. So please- share your thoughts on anything I post. But with recent rough times for my blog and blogging work, I at least need some assurance that people actually care about my work. Anything that even just sounds like spam will be shot down immediately.

• Am I In Your Blogroll? - Do you have a blog of your own? Please feel free to add my blog to your Blogroll if you love "John's Blog Space!" It would be a great pleasure for you to link back to my blog if you enjoy my work. At least you can tell people how great JBS is if you love my work. After all, I'd love to meet new people who love my blog and its posts. So why not add it to your blogroll?

UPDATED: July 11, 2012)

This blog entry was created on March 1, 2010 as a re-make of a blog entry originally made on January 3, 2010. Pairing a lovely dress (preferably a dress above the knees to mini dress length) is indicative of a country princess. Are you a country cutie? You just might be if you pair a cute sundress with some nice cowboy boots. This blog post is all about the look of wearing dresses with cowboy boots.


LATEST UPDATES:

JUL 9 2012 - edited post, added ShopStyle widgets

PERSONAL NOTE: Thanks to everyone who made this blog post still one of my most popular blog posts! I hope you enjoy your read here. Don't forget to comment and share my work!





--- Dresses With Cowboy Boots at a Glance ---

Here is an example of the look I'll discuss, courtesy of the one I closest I associate the look with- a lady named Taylor Alison Swift:

Here is another picture of Taylor Swift rocking out in another dress and another pair of cowboy boots. I'm including this as a bonus image, thanking everyone for visiting my blog entry on dresses with cowboy boots:

Other Dress + Cowboy Boots Combinations.

...and here is a picture of two ladies pairing cute sundresses with cowboy boots:

^ from: www.city-data.com - Two ladies in cute dresses wearing cowboy boots.

Taylor Swift's signature kind of style is a dress paired with a pair of boots. And usually with Taylor to show her country heritage, she'd normally sport a pair of cowboy boots along with a cute dress. Many feel that cowboy boots are NEVER stylish. Those who especially feel so would think that going with cowboy boots to wear with a girly dress is grounds for a hot mess. So how do I feel about the look?

I personally think pairing cowboy boots with a cute sundress can be a cute combination. A lovely sundress with a lovely pair of cowboy boots can make a nice combination. You don't have to be a country girl to enjoy country style. I just immediately look to Taylor Swift as far as pairing dresses with cowboy boots. Taylor does it so well, and it defines her style- girly cute with loads of style.



--- Dresses + Cowboy Boots Inspiration ---

As you may know, I am a Taylor Swift fan. Taylor exudes a level of loveliness and girly charm with her looks. She has the most beautiful curly hair of almost any famous person right now. There was a point where I felt like casual dresses on females was a dying trend. I'm glad there are those like Taylor who show that dresses are still very fun and beautiful to wear, even if it's given way to the ubiquitous denim mini skirt. The dresses usually worn by Taylor are beautiful. Pair them with boots (let alone cowboy boots), and she has a beautiful look.

A fashion admittance of mine is that the most important thing I check for are shoes. The loveliest look can be made terrible by wearing the wrong pair of shoes. You sometimes take a chance on certain shoes or whatever. In the case of a dress (between short and mid-length) with cowboy boots, I think it's a cute look as long as you can pull it off. If I were a female, my first inclination would be to pair a beautiful sundress with a pair of peep-toe pumps or some strappy sandals. So going with cowboy boots with a feminine dress is quite a gamble. Do you sacrifice feminine charm for a country-inspired look?


Going With the Dress + Cowboy Boot Combination.

I think if any female is going for this look, it would be best to find a beautiful enough casual dress to try this look out with. A good pair of cowboy boots to compliment them would have to be consistent. So I'm thinking... if you have a coral-colored dress, a pair of mahogany or chocolate cowboy boots would equal a great look. The look that most comes to mind for me would be a lemon yellow sundress with brown cowboy boots. I think it's a cute look to try out if you're a femme. Show a little country chic while wearing a beautiful short or mid-length dress. I don't hate this look. Taylor Swift really makes this look work.

It would be best to find a comfortable and beautiful short or mid-length dress to wear, and then find a lovely pair of boots to complete the look. I like this look as Taylor Swift really makes it work.

--- Building the Look ---

This is a look of girly and beautiful... with some country chic thrown in. I've initially intended on re-doing this blog entry to include some resources for if you want to have your own dress and cowboy boots. I won't mention too many as I don't want to waste too much time discussing this look as I had already done previously.

Please read "An Important Amazon Note" for all information regarding Amazon items. It also pertains to ShopStyle items as well, which are also featured in this post.


(EDITED: July 9, 2012)
I did away with the unique looks and decided to just offer you some widgets to build your own dress + cowboy boots look. I have both widgets for Amazon as well as ShopStyle. Feel free to use these widgets to build your own dress + cowboy boots look. These items are meant more towards Junior and Women sizes.
