Thursday's Threads

Happy Outfit Day everyone! It's a lazy, hazy day of summer here in CT. We're on day 5 of our heat wave (which is just what all of you in the south call summer... heat waves are made up of at least three days of highs over 90). I don't mind it one bit, but lots of people are getting pretty whiny. To be fair, the humidity hasn't fallen below 80% so it is a bit... stuffy out there. Anyway, I kept it super casual today... with a ridiculous homage to the avocado.
I've had "avocado outfit" on my list to do for awhile, but it was never quite ready... I had all of the accessories, but I didn't have any avocado clothing. Until recently anyway. My mom and I met up one rainy evening and went to the local outlet mall. There is an Old Navy there (talk about cheap!) and you guys! They had this:

Top: Old Navy
Avocado tee shirt! And it was $8. So I mean... How do I NOT buy it?

Belt: C4/Dreamers and Schemers
This awesome avocado belt is a collaboration between C4 Belts and Dreamers and Schemers boot socks. I have the socks too. And if I was riding tonight, I would definitely wear them.

Jeans: Indigo Rein
I think these two-toned, color-blocked, whatever you want to call them jeans are pretty fun. I can't decide if the make my giant legs look bigger or smaller though... I like them either way.

Shoes: Soludos
I have a few pairs of these espadrilles from Soludos, with different themes of course. They're ridiculously comfortable. I sometimes feel like they might be a little small when I first put them on, but then they perfectly mold to me feet and I never want to take them off. I think the fun embroidery on them is great too.

I got this adorable necklace from Etsy ages ago. I love the little spoon! Ha! So cute.

Arm Party:
Lefty is wearing this awesome handcrafted bracelet from Gypsies and Debutantes. She sources her textiles from south America and then adds the jewels herself here in New England! While this isn't exactly avocado themed, the greens in there fit right in.

Righty is wearing a coupld of vintage Manelli bracelets from ebay. They are definitely avodao toned! And then this silly charm bracelet (which is also awesome, clearly) came from Etsy. Believe it or not, it was not from the same seller as the necklace.

Purse: Betsey Johnson

I know. Seriously. I love the little fobs it comes with! The salt shaker has a mirror on the other side. I wish the lime had been a change purse though. It's not, it's just decor. And that there on the backside of the purse? That's a guacamole recipe! I'd like to try it!

But that's not all today, kids! Well, that's it for the avocados. But I also have a fun riding outfit to share! FINALLY!
It looks a little boring from afar... but it gets better up close!

Helmet: One K
Terrible photo, but I wore my black One K helmet with the snakeskin. These helmets are so comfortable!

Top: TKEq
Heh, horse humor. I bought some cute shirts from TKEq when they had a sale a few weeks back and this was one of them. I'm not sure why I thought this was so funny? But I do, and I love it.

Belt: Sandy Duftler
I have mixed emotions about the Duftler belts. They're kind of too big for most pants, but I do like how they look.

Breeches: Piper by Smartpak
I kind of love these Pipers. Not so much the fit because I really don't love how Pipers fit in general. But I definitely love the fun pattern and the trim on the pockets. That's my love/hate issue with pipers. I like the price point and the color combos. But I wish they fit a little better.

Socks: Dreamers & Schemers
I mean... there's never a wrong time for the F bomb socks is there? Ok, maybe if there's little kids around... But whatever. I had boots over them at the barn. I have seen evidence that there is a matching C4 belt out there for these, but I haven't found where I can obtain that just yet... It's on my need list though. Any suggestions, please throw them at me!

Boots: Tuffrider Regal
It was a rainy, muddy mess on Saturday, and there was zero chance I'd wear any of my nice boots out in THAT! Plus I just love these crappy boots. #sorrynotsorry

That's it for today! Probably no riding outfit next week, but we'll see. Rio is going to jog for me on the lunge line soon, and if he's looking pretty sound, I may start tack walking him. If that happens, riding outfits all the time! So fingers crossed if you like to see those... but also cross them anyway, because I'm dying to sit on a horse regularly.
Any favorites from today? Yay or neigh on avocados?


  1. They should have put the darker denim on the outside of those jeans and the lighter on the inside. That would have been cuter. I kind of like the two-tone though!

    1. Yes! I knew something was off... I think that's it!

  2. I had a pair of jeans similar to that centuries ago and they made me look huge back when I was NOT huge LOL Love the avocado outfit and now i just want guac Gee thanks...LOL.....also love the piper breeches check pattern. SO CUTE. I loved my tuffrider boots till they fell apart.....i would love another pair but the sizing was so off i could never buy online (I got mine at the Dover Tent Sale) Hope Rio can be tack walked soon HOW EXCITING !:)

    1. Once you expect the Tuffriders to fall apart, you can love them despite that! Haha!
      Lunged him tonight and unfortunately, Rio is still unsound, though he's probably smart enough to be faking it. Boo.

  3. The F-Bomb belt from C4 isn’t being officially released until September. I asked at Rebecca Farm :(

    1. Ah! Answers! Thank you!!!! September is frighteningly soon though.

  4. Omg all the avocado!! So freaking adorable! I like that riding belt fyi!

  5. I love that avocado outfit - the shirt is adorable!

    1. Thank you! I thought it might be too much... but then I was like, no such thing as too many avocados.

  6. Love the avocado necklace. So cute!
