Thursdays Threads

You didn't think I'd forget outfit day did you?! Never! It's a bit boring today though. Just one "traveling" outfit today.

This was a poor choice I must admit. Today was HOT and HUMID. All caps required. I mean maybe not TX hot, but it was in the mid 90's with 100% humidity. Luckily for me, I spent half the day driving. Well, maybe 3 hours. But it seemed like half the day. The t-shirt was fine, but those jeans are waaaayyyy too heavy for such conditions. Live and learn I suppose. Let's look closer!

It might be hard to read here, but it says "Pretty Good at Bad Distance." Cracked me right up when I saw this, and I knew I HAD to have it. I like to think I'm pretty good with the bad spot... (For those of you who aren't riders, a bad distance is when you get to a jump and the take off is either too close or too far away. It's not pretty, and sometimes leads to bad things happening!)

Jeans: Rue 21
Oldies but goodies here! I still can't believe I found jeans at Rue 21 that not only have ponies on the pockets, but the horse shoes are even pointing the right way! (The right way is pointing up so the luck doesn't run out.)

Belt: No brand
This belt and buckle each came from ebay, though they didn't actually come together. I love he ostrich look to the leather, and also that the H is two-toned.

Shoes: Margaritaville 
Someday I will retire these shoes, but that day is not today. They are still going strong! No holes in these bad boys. I've had them for YEARS! I paid $10 for them when I was in VT one summer. I was downtown, and needed to head back to check on the horses but was wearing totally inappropriate footwear. Rather than go all the way back to the hotel, I stopped at a shoe store to see what was on the sale rack that I could wear to the barn. And these were there in all their $10 glory. They are relegated to barn only duty for the most part. But they do occasionally find themselves out in public.

Arm Party!
You guys! Don't tell anyone, but Righty is totally commando today. So there will be no appearance by righty. This is a family show. But Lefty is all fancied up! I recently received these cuff bracelets that I pre-ordered from Swanky Saddle a few weeks ago. I've been wearing them non-stop since they arrived! I'm totally loving them. The first looks like reins, and the second one is like a browband, complete with fancy stitching! So CUTE!!! And apple watch is also present and accounted for. 

And that's it for today. I was rushing last night to get all the horses out before the rain and totally forgot to take riding outfit shots. I will have something cute for next week though!

What are you wearing today?



    I bomb distances to crossrails - 2ft on Petunia ALL THE TIME. Thankfully, the bigger the jumps get, the better she gets and my eye gets.

    1. Funny how that works isn't it? Although lately, I can't find anything!

  2. Love that shirt! Hah. Also, you have made me want an Apple Watch SO BAD.

    1. Thanks! I had to have it when I saw it. I even paid retail!
      The apple watch is pretty cool. I didn't know I needed one, but it really turned out to be a great gift!

  3. Hahahah the shirt... I need one for sure haha XD
