Thursday's Threads

You didn't think I'd skip outfit day did you?? Not a chance. I'm just a little late because after working a half day, I flew to Nantucket with my family for the weekend. Woohoo! No responsibilities for 3 whole days!!!! But that's not what we're here to talk about. Let's see what I wore to kick off my Island Adventure Leisure:
That's right, I busted out a party shirt. Bring on vacation! (I really needed a vacation. Clearly. I apologize for the excessive use of exclamation points.)

Top: Magazine
I love the colors on this slightly crazy floral top. It's button down, but only halfway, which is a trend I'm into. I sized up to a medium on this one, and honestly I shouldn't have. But I'm sure I can shrink it up some in the wash.

Jeans: Rue 21
I know right? White jeans are so brave. I'm pretty badass like that... The most miraculous thing is that I ate lobster for dinner followed by a chocolate ice cream cone, kneeled on the dirty side walk to fix my niece's shoe, and didn't get anything on them! It's a vacation miracle! Also, these are REALLY nice quality considering they're from Rue 21. Love the studs on the back pockets.

Belt: Ralph Lauren
I had to have a little something horsey come with me on my trip. Because after one day of not riding I'm going to have withdrawals.

Shoes: Chase & Chloe
Yep. They totally match the shirt. What are the odds? I found both item separately during Zulily's recent blowout sale (you THINK blowout is because they're selling off old inventory for cheap, but it's actually referring to what happens to the money in your wallet). You really can never tell from a computer screen if things will match, but since both items were ridiculously inexpensive I accepted the risk. Totally paid off!

Arm Party:
 Lefty is wearing a beaded bracelet from Nakamol from the days long gone of Little Black Bag along with my Apple Watch.
Righty has a pretty beaded bracelet though I forget the brand (sorry, bad blogger) and a gorgeous mixed media bracelet from Ettika.

Even though I didn't get to ride today, I have been riding plenty, so I DO have a riding outfit for you!

It's been chilly, no tank tops the past few days!

Top: Dankini
I've had this top on here before. It's one of my favorites. It's washable wool, so it breathes, and it's comfy and I love it! Oh and it even goes in the dryer without shrinking. Win!

Breeches: Irideon
This is my first pair of Irideon breeches. I LOVE the trim color (shocking, I know). I often size up when I don't know a brand when buying breeches. I mush prefer them a little loose to feeling like I'm stuffed inside. In this case I think I should have stuck with my normal size. But we'll see what happens when I dry them!

Belt: Unbranded
It's not quite the exact same shade as the piping. But it's pretty darn close!

Boots: HKM
These are quickly becoming a favorite. After only a handful of rides, they are almost completely broken in. Can't complain about that!

That's it for today! What are you wearing? How's the weather? What's coming up this weekend? Let's talk about it in the comments!


  1. Rockin the white jeans! They look awesome :D I spill too much to wear anything white hahah.

    1. Thank you! I generally have a rule about wearing white... But I break it every now and then!

  2. I really need to take a trip to Rue 21. They have such cute stuff!
