Thursday's Threads


Oh man. Guys. I half failed with the outfit photos yesterday. I remembered to take pics of Eros. But not a full body shot. And then got home and realized I forgot to take photos of my outfit. But I was at least still wearing most of it so I do have something to share. It's just a bit... more casual? Anyway... Here's what I wore:

It got cold here. Like. Really cold. Temps in the 20's cold. Miserable. Fortunately, it will warm up again later today. But in the meantime, I've been wearing the thickest, warmest, fluffiest things I could I could find.

Helmet: One K Mips
Recycled photo...
Haven't ordered the blue pieces for the helmet yet. Gotta get on that!

Sweatshirt: American Eagle
It's basically a fluffy teddy bear you can wear. It's cozy and comfy and warm. BUT. Only wear this around horses if you know you won't be removing your jacket (like last night) because EVERYTHING will get stuck in it and never come off. It's basically velcro for hay and shavings.

Belt: C4
I think this is adorable. And I hadn't even noticed the bit background until last night when I was taking this photo. So cute!

Breeches: Dover
I stocked up on the corduroy breeches when Dover had them last year. I got all three colors and keep hoping they come out with new ones this year... It's not looking good though. I'd think they'd have been out by now for the holidays.

Socks: Noble Outfitters
I wear Dreamers & Schemers or nylon socks most of the time, but when it gets really cold I switch to something warmer. I like these Noble Outfitters socks for the winter, because it has a pretty thick foot but the leg is still thin so my boots don't get tight.

Boots: Celeris UK
Another recycled photo...
I'm still wearing these, but I really need to bring the warm winter boots over. My toes will thank me. 

I don't have a full pony shot of Eros, so we'll just skip ahead to individual photos.

Bridle: Camelot RCS Gold
Browband: Boy O'Boy Bridleworks

All three horses have this same bridle/browband combo at the boarding barn. So you'll be seeing it a lot. A LOT. Sorry to be redundant. 

Boots: HKM
I like that these boots are pretty soft and pliable (the Punk Ponies ones are a little stiff) but they really don't hold up well over time. The color is wearing off, and there are tears in them too. Hoping they make it through the winter. I do like the fun metallic color though!

Saddle: Butet (this is the trial saddle!)
Baby Pad: Smartpak (with my cricut design)
Half Pad: Kavalkade
Quarter Sheet: B. Vertigo

For this pad decoration, I took the boarding barn's logo, and instead of the L that's usually in the shield, I stuck in Eros' name. A little personal touch but still on brand for the barn. Pammon has one also, but since Shiny wears the combo pads I didn't want to deface hers. Pretty sure I'm keeping this saddle. I don't love it as much as Pammon's but I think the difference really is just the lack of knee blocks. That's easy enough to fix.

And that's it for today! Any favorites?


  1. Those boots are so delicious... sigh. And I love how you're personalizing all those pads with the cricut!

    1. The cricut is so great. I just labeled all the standing wraps too. So much cheaper than embroidery and looks just as nice. Might it peel eventually? Probably. But I can just redo it!

  2. we had to bust out all the fuzzy clothes this week too, brrr... tho luckily things in maryland will warm back up for a little while at least!

    1. Yes! Here too! Thank goodness. It was already 45 this morning at 7. I'm not ready for real winter yet.

  3. That sweater looks so nice!!! It's warm (ish) again today and tomorrow, but it was cold the last couple of days. I'd be fine with the cold if it got cold and stayed cold, it's the bouncing temps that are killing me (and my head). Outlook says another warm winter... not a good think when we could use cold to kill stuff. This past summer was brutal with bugs. I don't think anything died last year.
