Thursday's Threads!

It's outfit day! It's rainy and dreary here today. For some reason though, I don't mind it. We have had so little rain, it's almost a novelty. Plus my ring was getting really dusty. Anyway, since it was dark and dreary, I figured it was as good a time as any to start breaking out the plaids for fall. This one I think is a nice transition piece since the colors on top are still somewhat summery.
I joked last week that I was making casual Thursday a thing. Clearly, I'm still on board. Let's look closer!

Top: Hydraulic
This top is more of a cotton than a flannel which is perfect for a coolish late summer day. I didn't really get a good shot here, but I really like how the cuffs are striped on the inside. I think it's fun to match patterns as long as it's subtle. The ombre effect on the shirt itself is fun too.

Jeans: Vigoss
I wear these ALL THE TIME! They are really comfy with just the right amount of stretch. Vigoss jeans fit me really well so I tend to reach for them the most when dressing myself in the morning.

Shoes: Esquire Footwear
Why yes, those ARE My Little Pony sneakers. Thanks for noticing! I found these on Zulily and had to have them. They're not the sturdiest of shoes, but I don't imagine I'll be wearing them every day. They're so cute!

Arm party!
Lefty is donning a quadruple wrap bracelet that I have no idea where it's from... Then there's a little one that matches so perfectly you almost miss it! That little guy is from Shashii. And lastly you'll recognize the apple watch.

This picture is terrible. The first one there came from the good old days of Little Black Bag. I love the druzy stone, I'm sorry it didn't photograph better. It has an iridescent quality to it that's really pretty. Next up is a leather bracelet with ceramic and rhinestone beads that I put together. And lastly is a leather and metal cuff that I also assembled. I love purple, I should definitely wear it more often!

I have a riding outfit to share too!

I mistakenly grabbed a pair of show breeches instead of schooling ones, so I guess I'm kinda fancy for hacking...

Top: Dave Matthews Band
I LOVE the DMB. So much. They were really popular while I was in high school and early college. I was browsing their merchandise on their website the other day and found a vintage T from one of the years they played at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center. Everything Saratoga has a horse on it, so why not a DMB t-shirt?! I loved it so much I bought one. It's easily my most favorite t-shirt ever.

Breeches: Tailored Sportsman
Not exciting. Very expensive. You know. Show Breeches.

Half Chaps: La Mundial
Paddock Boots: Horka
These half chaps were a nightmare to actually get. I had to bring in a mediator and everything. But after two years they eventually showed up and are absolutely perfect. I haven't really used them, I think partly because of all the drama, and partly because I'm lazy and love my Tuffrider Sport Boots so much. But I finally decided to bust them out and see how I like them. I really do love them. I'm not sure they were worth the aggravation, but I do think they were worth the money. The paddock boots come from Horka. I had gotten them from Victory Canter a few years ago to wear with the half chaps, but I do not think they carry the brand anymore. I have seen them on ebay though if you're looking for some blingy paddock shoes! They're very comfortable and not too hard on the wallet.

Helmet: Charles Owen GR8
You've seen my everyday helmet before, but it matches so nicely with the half chaps I just had to share it again. It's going to be retiring soon, unfortunately. The inside has all squished down so it's starting to feel too big. Safety is important friends! My new first world problem is deciding if I should get a custom shadowmat Samshield for everyday, a new custom Charles Owen, or neither and use the old helmet I used to show in before I got my premium Samshield. I'm leaning toward using the one I already have, but it's so hard to resist something new and custom!

Somehow I forgot to take belt photos with either outfit. Today I have on a navy belt strap with my H buckle, and with the riding outfit I had the same thing on but in hunter green.

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


  1. Squeee those shoes <3 I love the DMB shirt too!
