Thursday's Threads

Happy Outfit Day everyone! I'm feeling less like I'm dying today, and am back to work in the office. Good thing, or Thursday's Threads might have been me in my jammies.... I didn't remember to snap pics of last night's riding outfit (sorry, plague induced memory lapse) but I will have a fun riding apparel surprise at the end to make up for my lack of riding outfit. So here's what I'm wearing at work today:

It's actually cuter in real life than I managed to capture here. I swear.

Sweater: John + Jenn
You all should know by now how much I love neon. So when I spied this sweater in the clear the rack sale on nordy rack online, well. It's mine now. And for under $20!

Belt: Bestey Johnson
I've had this belt for ages, and it's sadly starting to show... But works great with the neon sweater today!

Jeans: Blue Revival
I wanted to pair this sweater with black jeans, and this was the first pair I pulled out. I almost put them back in exchange for a non decorated pair, but then decided this lacing was kind of 80's tastic and that totally works with neon, so... Here we are.

Shoes: Steve Madden
Admittedly these shoes BARELY work here... I'm not really sure they actually do. But I was running super late so I went with it. They actually look pretty awesome up against the sweater directly. But definitely less awesome with pants this short and socks... Oh well. At least my ankles are warm!

Arm Party!
Lefty:
Notice something different? After five years, my trusty apple watch has been letting me know I will need to upgrade soon. And the newer version has this fall protection app which I think is awesome for when I'm riding alone at home. When I was getting ready to buy my new computer, Apple was offering 6% back on all Apple purchases with the new Apple card. Apple doesn't have sales. EVER. So this was a pretty big deal, and I took full advantage. So meet my new Apple Watch friends! It's here with a neon initial cuff from I think C Wonder... I can't remember for sure though. And my fitbit is there at the back.

Righty:
I have no idea where I got any of these, but they're neon and awesome, and I love them with this sweater!

So that's what I have on at work today. A bunch of brightness to chase away the rest of this virus.

I mentioned above that I don't have a riding outfit to share, but I do have a fun surprise that arrived early to show you! Remember back in November I admitted to buying more boots from Celeris because they were 31% off on Halloween? And I maybe bought two pairs? Well. I definitely bought 2. And the first arrived super early, just before I went to Florida! And here they are! (Some of you may hate them, but my inner six year old is absolutely giddy!)

The color isn't perfectly accurate here, but you can see a better view if you scroll Celeris UK's Instagram. They're DEFINITELY Pepto Pink, and I LOVE THEM SO MUCH! The toe cap and cuff are purple patent with purple suede for piping. I wasn't totally sure I made a good call with the patent/suede combo. When I saw the first photo online I was like, oh maybe that was a bad choice... But in real life they actually look great together. You'll have to trust me. I'm not sure I'll wear these at the boarding barn... They might be a bit too much for that crowd. So not sure when you'll see them on Thursday's Threads. But anway... Here they are!

  2. The fall notification on the apple watch has caused me to have some interest in leaving fitbit land but a guy at my barn has fallen a couple times and his has never gone off. I guess he didn't fall hard enough? The one time he fractured his lower leg though. I don't want you to test it...but do you know of anyone who has come off a horse and had it work?

    1. Supposedly it works, but one thing I found out recently (err, this morning), is the default for the fall detection is that it is not turned on. So, you actually have to manually turn it on. I know people that have tripped and have set off the fall detection so I hope that that would mean that the fall detection would work when falling off a horse. It does say that people who are more active are more likely to set off fall detection... That might be why the default is NOT to have it on.

    2. That's disappointing to hear! I don't know of anyone who has tested it unfortunately. I have read a few stories of people hiking, running, and biking that it worked. Perhaps you need to hit your arm with enough force? You do have to set it up and turn it on, could it be possible he didn't do that?

    3. Ah! Yes, what Sarah says. I have it off right now since I'm riding with other people around and because I was worried about setting it off accidentally. Figure I don't need it right now.

    4. Exactly. I did hear someone who set it off tripping over a grooming box which is much less traumatic than falling. Thankfully it gives you the chance to turn it off before it notifies anyone so we probably should try it out... Maybe I will trip and try to set it off this week.

    1. Yeah, I'm curious about it! I kind of wish you had more than 30 seconds to shut it off though. Like I think you could shut it off quickly and then realize you're not okay. Or take a second to see if you're ok and miss your window to shut it off... But I like the idea and think it's a good idea if your riding alone.
      And thank you!
