Thursday's Threads

I have a half day at work today so I can meet with the squirrel man and the horses can get their spring vaccinations. Thus, I needed an outfit that was both work and barn appropriate. I went with my old stand by:
Jeans and a cable knit sweater. Kinda boring, but gets the job done and keeps me warm in the tundra.

Sweater: Tommy Hilfiger

This one is OLD. I think I've posted it before, but I can't quite remember. I have several cable knit sweaters! It's a nice chocolate brown colored washable cotton. Everyone should have one (or 11, whatever).

Pants: Seven
I've had these quite awhile too, and I'm pretty sure they've been on the blog before. Are Seven's even cool anymore? I'm not sure. I remember when they were super popular and cost like $200. These were maybe $20 at TJ Maxx, so I'm guessing they've lost their cool. I think they're cute though!

Boots: Ariat
These are actually riding boots.  But I really like them so I don't ride in them. Logical right?! If I wear them for riding, they'll end up bathing horses and hanging around in mud and poop and they'll die a quick painful death. If I save them to just wear around they'll live a long happy life. These are by Ariat, who makes the BEST boots. They are so comfy. They teamed up with 5A Baker to incorporate the famous brown plaid. (If you are a horse person, you KNOW Baker. If you're not, this plaid here... that's Baker Plaid. They started out just making horse blankets but have branched out into riding apparel as well.)

Belt: Equine Couture
Hey look! There it is again! I know you're shocked to see my belt matches my boots. 5A Baker has also teamed up with Equine Couture to showcase their plaid on belts, jackets, breeches (riding pants), and shirts. Obviously I had to have the belt. (And maybe a polo shirt and two pairs of breeches.)

I kept it simple with bracelets today since playing with horses and jewelry don't really mesh well.
 Lefty is wearing that photo bracelet you've all seen in the past. I really love that one! And my trusty watch.

Righty is sporting this pretty leather bit bracelet from Fornash. I love their equestrian line!

That's what I'm wearing today. What about you?


  1. I love that those are riding boots but you saved them for normal wear- Much cuter for normal wear. And I am not surprised as you do have a shoe problem ;) in a good way !

    Cant believe the squirrels are back good luck!

    1. I know. The squirrels. Again. UGH!
      The shoe situation is legitimately getting out of control. I need to do a purge. But I'm not ready! Ha!

  2. yay for cable knit sweaters! i basically live in them during this cold season! :D
