It’s that time of year again, where the cliche that Calgary is a city full of cowboys and cowgirls comes true for 10 days. Stampede kicks off tonight, so time to dust off your denim duds and give your boots a shine. Or if you like to partake in the festivities, but don’t have a box of clothing dedicated to the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth, feel free to shop my Stampede outfit ideas below! I compiled pieces that have a western edge, but can also be worn long after the fireworks and sounds of the midway have come to an end. Enjoy the Stampede this year everyone! Make sure you eat lots of corndogs and mini doughnuts, I know I will be. Yahoo!
