Defy old standards

Yesterday on my drive back to Mass, I took a little thrifting detour and landed on a 50% off savers sale- sweet! It took me a few minutes to realize the staff had been strategically outfitted in cowboy boots, bandannas, and over-sized belt buckles as part of a "boot kicking sale" theme. There's something about losing authenticity when you try too hard, but I gotta give em credit for staying in character!

While the recent return of cowboy fashion has taken the trend from "functional" to "fly," head to toe western wear is probably better suited for outfitting an equine than a fashionista. When it comes to trends, I like to experiment with styles that defy the "rules" and make up my own- like pairing this modern dress with cowboy boots and vintage fur.

Anyone can sport the western look by checking out ModCloth where you can get a western-inspired pair!
