The Perfect Cowgirl Attire

Scott Holstein

Put a kick in your step this spring and support a great cause at the best bash on the beach — the Emerald Coast Cattle Barons’ Ball. This year’s seventh annual shindig is set for Saturday, March 15, at the Linkside Center in Sandestin, and we have rounded up everything you need to look good from head to toe as you lasso a good time while giving cancer the (cute cowgirl) boot. Giddy-up!

Ride off into the sunset in style in this Cropped Vegan Suede Fringe Jacket by September Sun, $55 at Retail Therapy.

Up your two-step fun factor in this spirited boho-chic Camel Suede Fringe Skirt by September Sun $45. Purchase at Retail Therapy and find more fun-loving designs on Facebook at “shop September Sun.” 

Your look will be on fire with this Rondell turquoise bead and flame painted metal necklace by Jill White Jewelry, $135. Wear it alone or layer on your Western charm with this earthy piece teeming with turquoise stones and featuring a bronze-flamed cross pendant wrapped in copper, $190.
