I Feel Pretty | Texan

For this month’s Mother/Daughter Style post, Cavender’s outfitted the girls and me with some western wear.  Yee haw!  If you don’t know Cavender’s then you don’t know western wear.  They are a family-owned retailer started in 1957 and are synonymous with the well-dressed Texan.

Even though I’ve lived in Texas for the past (almost) eighteen years, I was raised in Pennsylvania.  Western wear was all new to me when I moved here.  At my first job out of college, I got invited to go country line dancing (out of body experience) and then to my first western-themed charity event.  The tight jeans, cowboy boots and western shirts were like something out of a movie!

Fast forward to today and I’m totally comfortable rocking my own pair of cowgirl boots.  I love how Cavender’s offers modern western wear, like the skirts and jeans we’re wearing in today’s post, along with more traditional items.

The girls and I were easily able to find cute outfits with a fun bit of western flair.
