How to be a bonafide cowgirl.
1. First buy a pair of plain blue jeans. Wrangler is best.
2. A couple of western shirts- cute ones of course!
3. Boots, the essential to every cowgirl’s outfit. One pair is fine but make sure they are quality, this ain’t no barn dance.
4. You need to own at least one (supercute) rodeo belt.
5. The hat. The cherry on a nearly perfect cake, pink or blue you say? What, are you a pornstar?
5. Make sure you know the difference between a quarter horse and an Arabian. (say whaaaa?)
6. Don't be shy! Cowboys and cowgirls aren't shy unless the cowgirl likes a cowboy and feels too embarrassed to say something.
7. You should now only listen to country music.
8. Make up is okay; just remember you will never actually be Dolly Parton.
9. Remember it’s really not about the clothes you wear but the attitude you have in your heart.
10. Every cowgirl is an A+ English student- oh your not? Then don’t bother.
