Thursdays Threads

Outfit Day! And I'm tardy again. I was busy trying to decide which instant camera to get for the Photo Booth at Rio's birthday. Also, I am going to be really poor after this. I hope he appreciates it! Anyway, I was able to "ride" (I use that term loosely) last night so I have a riding outfit and a very casual work outfit for you today. We'll start with riding since that happened first.
So I have this new phone. And it takes LIVE photos! They're super creepy. If you touch the screen the photo actually shows me moving. Very Harry Potter. It won't work through the blog though so stop touching your screen. You know you tried it. Admit it. Anyway, here's what I wore last night up close!

Top: Under Armor
Oldie but goody! I really like Under Armour apparel, but not really the price tag. We have an outlet nearby so I've managed to score some deals at least.

Breeches: Smartpak

These are the new Piper breeches from Smartpak. They just arrived while I was in Florida, and I couldn't wait to try them out. I like them well enough. Don't love, but definitely like. They do that falling down thing that Equine Couture breeches do to me. But it's mostly just when I'm not on a horse. So I guess that's not so important? It's still kind of annoying though. They may get better once I wash them. The other Pipers I have did. Also, look how close the sweatshirt color is to the piping! Impressive!

Ok, on to my very casual work outfit:
I'm trying to think Spring with a little powder pink today!

Top: American Eagle Outfitters
I love that the gold is sparkly on here, but not in your face sparkly. Just enough. Also, how pretty is powder pink and gold?

Jeans: Wallflower
I found these on Zulilly a few weeks ago for super cheap and was excited to get them. They are reminiscent of some jeans I had in college, which makes me wonder if they're actually in style? But then also, I don't really care if they are or not, because they are awesome. They're super comfy, and fit perfectly. Not too long, not too tight. Just right. Ahhhh magic pants!

Belt: Mane Jane
I wore my gold Mane Jane belt strap today with the logo buckle. I seriously can't get enough of these belts. Go order one! GO! Sorry. Didn't mean to get pushy.

Shoes: Sperry Top Sider
Aren't these adorable? Metallic powder pink boat shoes! I got them several years ago in the kids section. They're the best.

Arm Party!
Lefty has some adorable bangles I found on Etsy up first. The pug bracelet cost me an arm and a leg, but it was totally worth it. The underside has Live*Love*Bark etched on it. So cute. The horsey wasn't too pricey, and is equally adorable. And of course you'll recognize my apple watch.

Righty stacked them high today! First up is a stretch bracelet I made using real stone beads. I love the pink and bronze together. Next is a friendship bracelet from Nicole's Creations, followed by one from Nakamol. And last is an Hermes inspired ebay special which I love because GLITTER!

And that's what I'm wearing today! What do you have on? Have you tried the new SmartPak breeches yet?


  1. very nice bracelets, dear!

    Have a great weekend!
    Animated Confessions

    1. Why thank you! Hope you're having a great week!

  2. I too got my new Piper Silicone breeches this week and I really like them! They drop down on me a bit too, but I always wear a belt and that fixes the problem for me.

    1. I also belt, which definitely helps, but doesn't seem to eliminate it entirely. I think it's because my thighs and my waist are no where near the same size. #awkward

  3. i got a pair and rode one horse and all the silicone came off and rubbed on my saddle and half chaps, they went back and i got a regular pair, which i love

    1. Ahhhh! Really?! Yikes... That didn't happen to me when I wore them, but it's been cool here. I wonder if that will happen when it's hot out?! Hope not!
