Modest Fashion Show- Day 5- Western

Western, what a fun category! I originally picked out a plaid shirt and a jean skirt and belt, but the plaid shirt was really hot and just not practical for this time of year. So, I opted for sort of a "Country Chic" look. This dress, my mom actually bought for herself, but it was too tight so she gave it to me! It is a brand new dress with tags (orginally $98, oi!) and we got it at a consignment store for $12. What a steal!

my outfit:
dress//consignment shop
tank top//target
owl earrings//accessory store in ukraine
