Thursdays Threads

Happy Outfit Day everyone! Apparently it's September here in Ct, so my two outfits are absolute extremes of one another... Let's take a look!
First up is my riding outfit. This was from a couple weekends ago because I didn't remember to take pics last night:
Yes... it was warm that day. I tend not to condone wearing tanks to ride, because you know bouncing stuff, inappropriateness, road rash if you tumble... I could go on and on about how I don't approve of them. But it was 90 degrees that day,  and I ride in my backyard. So tank top it was!
Let's look closer:

Tank: Old Navy

I live near an Old Navy outlet so you imagine how crazy cheap tank tops are there. I stock up every year on new colors.

This is an unbranded belt. I found it on ebay for 3.99. I love the anchor and the navy blue color! Also, I've seen similar (ok, identical!) belts around in the $40 range, so this was a steal. And what better belt to go with this week's breeches?!

Breeches: Equine Couture

You've seen my schooner breeches before I think... But they're awesome, so I know you don't mind seeing them again.

Boots: Tuffrider
These bad boys are starting to break in. I can't really complain since I haven't worn them all that much. But I am still a little bummed they aren't as soft and awesome as the Regals.

Spur straps: Mane Jane
I think I need to swap straps on these spurs. I have the horse shoes pointing the wrong way! Don't want all my luck draining out. These straps from Mane Jane are REALLY soft, and only a little bit too long for my child sized feet.

Ok that's it for riding apparel this week. Now on to my fall ensemble from today:
Yes. That's a sweater. Where is summer?

Top: Celsius
Ok, to be fair this is an open weave sweater and actually pretty sheer though it doesn't appear that way. So it's for sure a summer weight sweater. But still... More like end of summer! Brrr.

Belt: Sandy Duftler
Ew. Pardon my roll up there above the belt... Anyway, this is my Sandy Duftler belt that is inspired by that $800 Ralph Lauren version. I love this one, and don't wear it nearly as much as I ought to. Fun fact: All those spur belts the equestrians are wearing these days from Equestrilifestyle are made by Sandy Duftler too.

Pants: Express
I know you've seen these before. Dare I say it? I dare. I think these may be my favorite pants... Though that can change from day to day. These are a coated denim, and I LOVE THEM!

Shoes: C-Label
In an effort to remind myself that it is in fact summer (technically I think it's still spring...) I wore some sandals with my sweater. These are completely bad ass with all those spikes on them. And they are pretty sharp, so no sitting on my feet today!

Arm Party:
Lefty is wearing a bow bangle from Kate Spade (because they recently had a sale online...), my leather bangle from Rebecca Minkhoff that my SIL gave me, and my apple watch.

Righty is a little nutty today... First up is a spike bracelet I've had for a long time, followed by that AWESOME sunglass bangle that I overpaid for on ebay by Kate Spade (money well spent if you ask me...), and a rhinestone and leather bracelet that I can't for the life of me remember where it came from... Forever21 maybe? Baublebar? I have no idea.

That's what I'm wearing today! What do you have on?
