Thursday's Threads

I nearly forgot to do a Thursday's Threads today! Ooops! But I remembered with plenty of hours to spare. Yay me! Today I spent the day riding my yellow horse and watching my trainer show in the 1.35 Meter jumpers at WEF. Great day if you ask me! Thus, today's outfit is a riding outfit:
Sorry about this hugely awkward photo. But my tired butt was unable to move from that chair.

Top: Dakini
I had never heard of this brand but found a similar top last year at Marshalls and fell in love. It's a very light weight washable wool. They are pretty pricey, but I found this one on clearance for around $25. If you ever see one, definitely grab it! It's on the cool side here today and quite windy, so I was happy to have a wool long sleeve shirt to wear! (Also, it has thumbholes making it the best shirt ever.)

Breeches: Ariat
Again, sorry for the awful photo. There was a shadow that I was unwilling to move out of. These Ariat breeches are awesome. They are navy with an aqua blue (turquoise maybe) stitching. They fit perfectly, and I wish they made other colors.

Belt: Mane Jane
I'm still so in love with this belt. I think I may have to order another color or two... The neat thing about Mane Jane is you can order just the belt strap. Since I already have a buckle, I don't need to pay full price for another belt with buckle.

Shoes: Margaritaville
These are my barn boat shoes. They have stood around in mud, walked through dry, dusty rings, and cleaned stalls. I take terrible care of them and treat them with reckless abandon. And yet they are still going strong. I bought them at least three years ago in VT. I had been shopping in town and realized I didn't have shoes with me to do night check. Rather than drive back to the hotel, I stopped at the shoe store and found these in the clearance section for $10. That's money well spent my friends.

I don't ride with an arm party, so I just wore my apple watch today:
And that's it for Thursday's threads! As punishment for my throwing this view in all of your faces:
I now have 11 new bug bites. And probably Zika.

  2. Love it (as usual), particularly the dakini top. When I tried to open this post on Friday at work your blog was marked as "phishing"... so odd.

    1. Thanks!
      UGH! Again?! Last week blogger tried to delete my entire blog! Apparently it was a ton of other people too. I think they're having some technical difficulties. Thanks for letting me know!

  3. Beautiful post dear! I like this a lot.
