Helmet: Charles Owen AYR8
Belt: Sandy Duftler
Breeches: Equine Couture
Boots: La Mundial
That's what I wore riding last night, so now it's on to today's outfit, which is much more summery. Yesterday's highs were in the low to mid 70's but today it's back to summer with temps in the 80's. I dressed accordingly. And also casually, cause #lazy.
Top: US Polo Assn
Belt: Kate Spade
Jeans: Kut from the Kloth
I have a few pairs of jeans from this brand, and I'm a huge fan. They're always really soft and stretchy and comfy. Plus they fit my curvy bottom half quite nicely. So these pants actually have a pink wash to them, which is impossible to photograph. Not just for me, but I couldn't even tell what they meant from the website photos. I took a chance though cause I love me some pink jeans. I was not disappointed! Wish you all could see the real color, it's subtle but super fun.
Shoes: Sperry TopSider
Nicole's Creations made for me. It describes my entire life pretty well. And I love that the R is backwards. So cute! I should have grabbed a photo from the side too though, it's a gorgeous minty/teal color, all knotted and beaded. SO PRETTY! (If you love friendship style bracelets, definitely check out her site. She's crazy talented.)
That's it for today! My body is still a little angry about my lack of sleep the last few weeks. And my decision to stay up reading blogs until 1 am last night did not help matters. (I'm still learning how to live with this autoimmune stuff. Clearly, I have a lot to figure out.) So running hasn't been a thing lately. Hopefully next week I'll have a fun running outfit to share too!

I took Friday off from work last week. Originally, I was going to take a half day because I had Yankee tickets for the evening game (Star Wars Night!!!). But then I was asked to braid a horse in the morning, and I decided to just take the whole day. Who wants to get up extra early to braid before work, suffer through a half day, get done later than you were supposed to, and then rush around getting the horses and dogs set up for the pet sitters? Not me! Plus, by skipping work, I had time to ride Badger before leaving for NY.
So, I started braiding around 8:
The horse I had to braid Saturday morning was a bit of a nudge, so he took a little longer than I wanted. And it really wasn't my best work. Hard to braid a moving target. But I got him done, and was only a little late to ride Badger.
Had another nice, light hack on Badger, followed by riding Rio and Jampy at home. Light hacks for everyone, cause I was barely awake.
My town's fair is really tiny, but I managed to have a great time with my mom. I ate ALL the things, cause that's what fairs are for. And then I found my new horse and proceeded to spend a lot of money to win him.
Everyone, I'd like you to meet Corny:
Also at the fair was an artist making things out of glass. He made figurines and necklaces. I was going to buy a pretty pink heart necklace (they were all $10, so inexpensive!) but then I realized you could make requests. I asked for a green horse (obviously) and then added a horse shoe to my order. You guys, these pendants are gorgeous! And $10?! The horse is incredible.
After stuffing my face with fried oreos, it was time to head home and crash. My poor body was pretty happy to not move even an inch for a solid 7 hours (finally).
Sunday was pretty quiet. I rode all three horses. Jampy had a little school. I was excited to watch the video because he really finished up great. I felt like his last few jumps he really used himself. Unfortunately, my phone stopped recording after five minutes. Boo. So this is the best I could get:
This week has been really busy at work, and I'm still trying to catch up on sleep. I gave the horses Monday off, so after yoga, I stopped for groceries and just relaxed a bit. Tuesday was rainy, so I flatted Jamp, but gave Rio a second day off. Tonight everyone flatted again. Hopefully Jampy will jump a little tomorrow if it doesn't rain.
Also, I have to fangirl a bit here... Tucker Tweed shared one of my photos on Instagram!
Well, that's what's up this Wednesday! What's up with you? Did you get lots of sleep this weekend? If you did, can you tell me all about it? I really miss sleeping.

I got a new show jacket! I've been really curious about the AA Motion Light jackets for awhile. I know Olivia from Hellomylivia has one, and it looks awesome on her. None of my local shops has them. Also, I've been lusting after the green one which very few stores carry. I saw them on sale on Instagram, but alas, it was sold out in my size and color preference. When I inquired, they said I was out of luck on the sale price as they wouldn't get more before it ended. Some other nice person private messaged me where I could find one. Low and behold, it was on sale! Only $20 off, but they're not overly expensive to being with. So I bit the bullet and ordered one. Pretty silly since I don't show right now. But I really like it! I'm going to share photos, but it looks too small in the pics. I tried it on in a hurry over a heavy rugby shirt. It fits perfectly with a show shirt. The color is most accurate in this first weird photo.
|This is the most awkward photo...|
|I like how the wrinkles from shipping match my fat wrinkles... Ugh.|
Do any of you have this jacket? What color did you pick? Do you wear it in the hunters or do you think it's just a jumper coat?
