Thurday's Threads: Chanukah Edition

Happy Chanukah Outfit Day!!! I decided that I would wear ugly Chanukah sweaters to work every day this week, and so far, either no one has noticed, or they just haven't said anything... I saved my new favorite one for today though, so I could share with all of you! But fear not, yesterday's sweater I rode in as well, so you can see that one too. We'll start with today and work backwards.
It has TINSEL on it! I know. It's definitely something.

Top: Tipsy Elves
I don't know how they come up with this stuff! I will say, I hope Tipsy Elves has some new styles next year for Chanukah. I own all the current styles that I liked, and there are far less options than for Christmas. So I'm hoping for some new hilarity next year. Though this certainly does not disappoint!

Belt: C4

I only have one Chanukah belt, so you'll see this again shortly... Maybe C4 could do a new one next year too...

Jeans: Hudson
Love these! I wish they were a tad longer. The ankle length isn't ideal once it's sock weather. But they'll be great with tall boots too.

Socks: not sure where I got these
Menorah socks are always a good idea for Chanukah time!

Shoes: Blowfish
Can you believe I don't have Chanukah shoes?! I know. I couldn't quite believe it either. Apparently, there's not a large market for them. Come on designers! We need some Chanukah shoes!

Arm Party:
Lefty is wearing this dainty leather bracelet with a star of David charm along with my trusty apple watch.

Righty is donning a beaded snowflake bracelet from Pura Vida, along with this adorable stack from Alex and Ani that my mom gave me last year. So festive!

Bag: Betsey Johnson
I mean... no Chanukah outfit is complete without a dreidel purse. Right? Check out the gold gelt for the zipper pull! So cute!

That's what I have on at work today, but Eros and I both have riding outfits to share! I'll go first.

It's blurry to show you how effing cold it was last night. I think that comes through...

Sweater: Tipsy Elves
Jacket and Vest: Eddie Bauer
My dad actually ordered a jacket and vest for my step mom and for me with the barn logo on them, but they aren't here yet. They would have matched better being Navy. But these are warm, so I don't care if they go or not!

Belt: C4 (again)
It's adorable. I don't really need a second one.

Breeches: Ovation
These are the "curvy" cut Ovation breeches. I really love them, as they are made for girls like me with THIGHS. But they weren't really warm enough last night.

Boots: Tuffrider Regal
I know, I know. Boring. But they have plenty of room for extra socks.

That's what I rode in, so now it's time for what Eros wore... I didn't get a full horse shot, so we'll just do the individuals. (Also, the trainer over there hates color and thought he looked ridiculous. She's boring.)

Saddle: Hermes
Pad: Hopeful Equestrian
half pad: I can't remember this brand, so sorry!
Girth: Jack's
Part of me wishes I had done the Chanukah set in blue, but I do love this purple. Maybe next year we'll do a blue set.

Polos: Hopeful Equestrian
For some reason, the velcro never hits quite in the right spot. But they're adorable all the same.

Bridle: Spare parts... mostly Royal Sports
Browband: Southern Sweet PGH

I snagged this browband on Etsy for a STEAL! ($35!) and though it does work for Chanukah colors, it's also similar to the barns colors, so he'll wear it for schooling year round.

And that's it for our Chanukah edition of Thursday's Threads. Any favorites from today? Do you embarrass your horse with theme outfits? If not, you should. They don't usually buck you off in retaliation... only sometimes.


  1. This entire post I just kept singing the Adam Sandler Hanukkah song from SNL on repeat.

  2. I'm shocked there are no shoes out there! Love Eros ensemble!

    1. I've seen some cheesy screen printed sneakers... but I'm holding out for something better.

  3. You really do have an outfit for every occassion
