Breezy Days: Buckle Mom on a Budget

Buckle Mom on a Budget

If you've ever been to Utah, you will notice that yes, everyone is pretty.
Everyone is nice.
Everyone is stylish.
Everyone is white.

And sometimes it seems like everyone starts to blend in and look the same...
A sea of pretty lookin' happy white people.
But one look that sticks out as very "Utah" are the Utah mom looks.

There are two:

A. The 80's mom jean/denim maxi skirt/teased bang wearin' mom
B. The Buckle on a Budget mom {my personal fav}

If you don't know what I'm talking about with the last one, you can spot this specimen usually in the Kneaders parking lot around noon attempting to park their massive SUVs in the tiny parking spots, next to all the other Buckle Mom on a Budget SUVS. Ya, it's pretty entertaining to watch.

Don't know how to spot em' you say?
Here is a sparknote run-down.

They usually wear shirts like these:

Jeans like these:

And hair like this:
{To learn more about the Utah poof, read this article HERE}

But what cracks me up, is that Buckle is so expensive {and Mormons like to find cute/stylish stuff on the cheap, holla!}, so they find this particular style on a budget. 
And I swear they have scoured every Target clearance and Ross shelf known to man.
They were out in SWARMS today. Grabbing whatever they could with both hands.

Welp, no fake True Religion jeans for me today :/
{Baha! Joke people, joke.}

Hope you all had fun rummaging through the remnants of the Target clearance this weekend!
Anyone find anything good?
{I found an owl beanie for $4, score!}
