Retail Therapy ft. Ariat



This post is sponsored by Ariat International.

July was one of the best and hardest months of this year. Last month, my brother and his wife gave birth to my first nephew on July 4th. Jacob James Stuckman is adorable and healthy! Mid July, I visited my someone special and met his amazing family for the first time. Now, with good things, often comes the bad. I lost my grandmother in late July, while visiting her. It was sudden and still hasn't fully sunken in. With so many changes and feelings, it was a tough month to fully process. Channeling my inner Cher Horowitz, from Clueless, I turned to retail therapy.

Being from a western town with bragging rights of having the world's oldest rodeo, cowboy boots are a part of my origin. I put on my favorite new boots called Tailgate Western Boot from Ariat International, and set off to do some healing. My feet were comfy the whole day. For sizing in the boots, I recommend either going up a half size and wearing boot socks (which is what I do), or staying to your normal size and bracing yourself for the breaking-in period. I probably walked at least a couple miles and my feet felt fine. That's impressive for new boots! The Santa Monica Promenade (where the shopping went down) is a large outside and inside mall. It's one of my personal favorite shopping hubs. It was just what the doctor ordered. Although the shopping occurred in California, the photos above were taken back home in Arizona. 

I shopped until I could drop. My arms literally ached for two days after the therapy session. lol No regrets! Hey now, before you judge me, there were a lot of killer sales. It was my own personal “Treat Yo Self” day. (If you understand that reference, I love you. If you don't, you can read about the amazing day here.) 

Hope you all had a wonderful July. I will be posting more frequently again, as life settles down. Be sure to follow me on Instagram @shellystuckman to stay connected. I always love blogging, and sharing life with you. Thanks for being great readers. Xoxo, Shelly
