Thursday's Threads

Happy outfit day everyone! It's already feeling like fall here, which as you know, I don't like one bit. But, at least my favorite color is in season now! Once again, it's featured on last night's riding outfit. I know you're surprised!
I was messing around with my phone camera and noticed Rio posing when he saw the flash going off. So we snuggled in for this adorable shot. An instant favorite! (He's the cutest.)

Helmet: Charles Owen AYR8
I heart greenie.

Top: Kastel
Sorry about this awkward boob photo... My selfie camera isn't working well, so I took this blind with the regular one. Anyway, I grabbed this merino wool half zip from Kastel in one of Riding Warehouse's great sales. I'll definitely get more if they go on sale again (in different colors I promise).

Belt: Sandy Duftler
Iconic spur belt! I really should have sized up on this guy, it JUST makes it around. Pretty though, and by some miracle is very close to the same shade as my top. You have no idea how many different shades of green exist...

Breeches: Equine Couture
#boatsonmybreeches I feel that if you live in New England, you should be required to own boat printed breeches. They remind me of the summer season that I'm so desperately clinging to. Also, they are nice and snug around my calf with sock bottoms so all my tight boots fit over them.

Boots: La Mundial
Lol... they're so snug you can see the seam for the sock bottom on my breeches. My feet don't usually fall asleep though, so I guess they're just right.

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.
I'm really grateful for a casual work environment where I can wear jeans and a polo shirt and fit right in.

Top: US Polo Assn
I think you've all seen this one before? It has two of my near favorite colors on it, pink and mint, so I have nothing negative to say about it.

Belt: Kate Spade
In honor of fair season, I bring you the Kate Spade Ticket Belt. I didn't know this existed when I could have gotten it for cheap, but I found it on Ebay from some dude in Australia for not toooooo bad of a price. I think it's just the cutest, but it's pretty tiny. I think it's meant to be worn higher on your natural waist.

Jeans: Kut from the Kloth
Side discussion: I'm not sure how I feel about them using K instead of C's. It feels a little clannish now that I think about it... But hopefully (though marginally better at best) they were thinking more along the Kardashian line maybe? Anyway... back to the pants.
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
I'm such a professional I didn't even brush the horse hair off these before photographing. So classy. You all know my love of Sperry's. And obviously these get extra love since they're mint. (You can see the pink of my pants a little better here.)

Arm Party!
Lefty :
Lefty is donning this fabulous bracelet that Nicole from 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.)

Righty wanted to have some fair fun too, so she's wearing a pair of shades from Kate Spade. I honestly have no idea the brands or where I got the other two. But they're pretty pink like my pants!

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!


  1. Still stuck on those breeches. They look great on you!

  2. That outfit with the green + boat breeches is my alltime favorite! When Henry and I are hunter princesses we want to dress exclusively in hunter green <3

  3. Those breeches are fantastic! I bought that kastel sweater too but it hasn't quite cooled off enough to wear it yet. The official kastel site had some pretty good sales on various colors of that sweater going on a little bit ago, not sure if they still do? 😁
