Get Along Little Dogies

Get Along Little Dogies

The Deets: Vintage MIA floral cutout boots (thrifted); Loft polka dot dress (Loft outlet); Grace Elements blazer (less than $10 @ Steinmart Red Dot clearance); lia sophia convertible pendent

I think this song was on a record I listened to as a small child ’cause I still really enjoy it as a good sing a long, or just singing it alone at the top of my lungs in the car, especially the chorus.

Whoopee ti yi yo, get a long little dogies
It’s your misfortune ain’t none of my own
Whoopee ti yi yo, get along little dogies
You know that Wyoming will be your new home

To get a haircut or grow it out? That is the question.

I guess I just needed a good pair of cowboy boots to go with this song that’s been stuck in my head for over four decades.

Skinny li’l calves. Hehe. Get it?

Actually, these aren’t cowboy boots, but nobody believes me. I did manage to locate a description of a pair of these same vintage MIA boots sold on eBay in March 2009:

Slouch Tall Riding Knee Cuff Boots Fantastic Pair of fine leather boots with teardrop, triangle, and pie-shaped cutouts exposing your legs or hose behind the holes…Stamped leaves are tooled into the leather between the cutouts…Zipper plunges down to the inner arch to help you get them on.

I grew up around horses. No one rode them in these babies, but hey, as more than one person said to me the day I wore ’em, “Ride ’em, cowgirl!” Whatever floats your boat. I can tell you these super comfortable girly boots sure float mine.

I’m linking up to Not Yet Dead Style’s Visible Monday ’cause when you’re wearing boots like these, you’re real hard to ignore.

  1. Wowywowow! Those boots sure blew the socks off this cowgirl. They hug your calves like they were made for you. Major awesome find, Lynne!

    (Also I sent you a package today. It is NOT a Christmas gift, just a snack that you should open asap)

  2. Those boots make my fabulous-footwear-feelings go SPROING!!! How marvellous, Lynne! Their / your theme song, the ebay description, and your ever-lovely navy and dots are just gravy. Plus your hair looks great!

  3. Those are such awesome boots. The heel makes me think they are from the late 90s – just perfect. I have never heard that song before, but I bet you sing it well!

    Keep an eye out for my package too. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Oh my, these boots are made for . . . You. I remember when you bought them, and they are even better in real life. Thanks for sharing the joy with Visible Monday.

  5. Lynne! great boots! oh my. your post was well written and your self photos are great. i'm still having issues with bad focus problems on my new camera. ergh! take care ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. Those boots look so good on you, Lynne – are you happy to have found a pair that fit your slim calves so perfectly? You should be – they're fabulous!
    Loving the polka dots too. xxx

  7. Those are SUPER awesome boots! They look great on you and I am in love with the polka dot dress!! Super cute!

    And your song reminds me of the theme song to a show I watched on Nickelodeon when I was in middle school called Hey Dude. It's no longer on the air of course, but it was pretty much the bomb. Get along little doggies.

  8. Most people have rather limited experience with cowboy boots, so I am not surprised by their reactions LOL! They look fantastic on you! I have skinny calves, too, and it is hard to find boots that aren't huge around them.

    Yeah, and if you wore those riding horses, you would get laughed out of your saddle!

  9. The boots are fabulous and very unusual. The color of the leather is a great combo with navy. I'm a polka dot lover, so your ensemble is very appealing to me.

    I grew up hearing the same song!
