Howdy stranger, ain't seen you 'round these parts before.

Yesterday evening, I went to my cousin Dakota's baby shower.  As the title of this post indicates, the theme was Western, and it was embraced to the fullest extent.

That's my Aunt Colleen, Aunt Patty, and my mother doing what they referred to as a "Western pose."  Yeah, I'm not sure either, but they have a good time in life.  The shower was held in the stables on my aunt's farm, and all the trappings of the evening took off from there.  And I got to drink lemonade out of a glass jar!  It was very exciting.

The place cards looked like they were racing!  Mine was red.  This pleased me.
This is the woman who cares for my aunt's horses unceasingly.  She has an excellent sense of humor.

Aaaaaaand, I wore an outfit!

I thought the tan tones in the skirt, the belt, and the shoes gave the outfit a nice Old West feel.  Goodness knows I can't resist navy, so I threw on my semi-fancy Zara top.  I was both comfortable and stylish.  Except it was hot, so my feet swelled, but I'm not complaining since this was a party for a pregnant person and I understand your feet swell quite a bit during that adventure.  Nevertheless, the shower was absolutely beautiful.  I'm thrilled for my cousin and can't wait to meet her little boy or girl!

What a beautiful setting! Your outfit was western chic at it's finest. I'm seriously considering copying you and buying that skirt! Those place cards are the cutest, what a creative and cute idea.
