Thursday's Threads

Outfit Day! It's a less long post today since I was lazy all week and haven't gone running. Oops. It's starting to feel like autumn is coming with highs only in the 70's for the next several days. I don't think I'm ready. In protest, I wore a summery outfit today:

You know you're getting old when you start wearing linen resort wear. Just sayin'. Pretty sure my grandma had a similar shirt in the 90's.

Top: Merona
I mean, even if it does look like a shirt my grandma would have worn, I am sucker for those adorable pineapples! And yes, that's Merona as in the Target brand. I love Target.

Belt: C4
I mean, maybe this had something to do with my getting that shirt. And yes, I have the matching Dreamers and Schemers boot socks. I'll probably wear them tonight to ride.

Jeans: Current Elliot
Apparently this brand is stupid expensive in real life? Who knew? I found these on the clearance rack at TJ Maxx when I was in FL last spring. I like the kind of checkered pattern on them. Kind of reminds me of the bottom part of a pineapple. Or maybe the basket the pineapple might come in.

Shoes: Lily Pulitzer for Target
Do you guys remember that whole Lily Pulitzer for Target insanity a couple of years ago? It was ridiculous you guys! Everything sold out online with minutes of being available. I showed up at my nearest Target ten minutes after they opened and there was nothing left but one pack of hair ties. Literally. Insane. But I bought these off some girl on Instagram new with tags still on. No regrets.

Necklace: Zad
So cute right? I had gotten this awhile back to match the shoes but haven't remembered to wear it until now. Better late than never.

Arm Party!
Lefty is sporting this adorable leather wrap bracelet from Frye. I found it on and was so excited about the fancy stitching. It was tough to choose a color. Brown seemed the obvious choice since that would look like a bridle, but, in the end green and gold won out, for obvious reasons.
Righty is sporting this basket weave looking set that I made. Figured it tied in nicely with the pants.

And here's what I wore to ride last night:

More GREEN! I know you're shocked.

Helmet: Charles Owen AYR8
We probably don't need to go on and on about this one being my favorite. But it is. Still.

Shirt: Aeropostale
I really like the Aeropostale polos for riding. They're super cheap so I'm not too sad when they get spit on and otherwise destroyed. But they still look nice. The only downside is they run really small. Sizing up makes me sad.

Belt: Silver Star
I've found a lot of great stuff on Ebay, but stumbling across this one is definitely one of the best yet. An argyle, real leather belt that just so happened to be in my barn colors?! Yep, didn't think twice about clicking the "buy it now" button.

Breeches: Trainer's Choice
These are OLD. I'm a little behind in the laundry department, so the bottom of the breech pile is becoming the top. These are interesting pants. They're more cottony than the ones around currently and the fit is more like days gone by... They have euro seat, but they are loose fitting. I kind of like the looser fit. I wonder if it will make a comeback?

Boots: Horka
I don't wear these nearly enough. Despite that, they're almost completely broken in. The right boot still digs in a little at the ankle, but otherwise they've gotten really comfy. I love how soft they are. Even though they may be a hair tall on me, they don't dig in because the leather is so soft. I think the distressed look is really fun too.

That's it for today! Any favorites? What are you wearing? Is autumn approaching where you live?


  1. I really dig those Horka boots! Autumn is definitely approaching where I live -- my diesel didn't want to start yesterday because it deemed the temperature too cool 😂 and I grabbed a fleece for chores this morning!

    1. Ugh! TOOO SOON!!!! I'm not ready for it to be dark so early.
      Thanks! I love those boots!

  2. Oh man, that green/gold bracelet is awesome. Time to check ebay!
