Thursday's Threads!

Outfit DAY! Woohoo! I have a RIDICULOUS riding outfit for you today. I almost didn't share it, because I totally clashed with myself unintentionally. But then I decided you'd probably enjoy a good laugh, so hey, I've got very little pride anyway. Here it is:
It's not so bad from far away... but wait till you see the closeups. Those breeches are snakeskin printed! When I grabbed clothes for the barn, I thought I was grabbing plain brown breeches. Oops.

Helmet: Charles Owen
 It's still my favorite. I like the blue sparkles... but this one! Love!

Shirt: Kerrits
I loved these sort of paisley horse prints when they came out. I kind of liked the blue better, but they only had my size in this color. But really, it's brown and tan horses on there... just like my herd!

Belt: Tory Burch
I picked this shiny number up at the outlet when I was in FL around the holidays. I had been eyeing it for awhile, and it was down to around $35.00. Can't pass that up!

Breeches: Romfh
See? Snakeskin. Snakeskin does NOT match with pony paisley. Nope. But these pants actually made me feel better about myself. So these and the ones I wore last week are the same breeches, same size. The gray ones from last week I wear a lot, but these not as much. These are like twice as big as the others! And they started out the same. So my theory that the dryer has been shrinking my clothes is obviously completely accurate. (Shut up. Let me have this.)

Boots: Tuffrider
I think I'm almost proficient enough to think about breaking in some of the new ones. But not quite just yet. I'm not sure how many more rides are left in these though.

Well there it was. My clashing riding outfit. Thankfully I was a bit more put together for work today:

How do you like that? Collared shirt! Like I'm an actual professional or something. Ha!

Shirt: Haley and the Hound
I went a little crazy during Haley and the Hounds warehouse sale last month. I LOVE their button downs (which sadly there are none on the site right now. I was hoping for fun new styles this season). These were 70% off! I only managed to find two in my size though. But I digress. You may not notice right away, but the print inside the cuffs and the collar is actually full cheek snaffles. LOVE! I wish the shirt was green checked to match, but the contrast is nice too.

Jeans: Mavi
These are somewhere in between jeans and jeggings. They have all real pockets, but they're super stretchy and comfy.

Shoes: Western Chief

These adorable little flats are actually rubber. Perfect for springtime showers! Or when you have to go in your horse's stall at lunch time because he somehow took his sheet off... (ask me how I know that.)

Arm Party!

Lefty is wearing a relatively new leather bracelet from Swanky Saddle. I'm not sure if it actually is or not, but it appears to be made from an actual rein. I thought the little rhinestone on the clasp was a nice touch too.

Righty is also wearing a rein bracelet from Swanky Saddle, but this one is brass. The mantra bracelets I got from Olde Dog Designs on Etsy. She can even customize them if you ask. I believe Swanky Saddle is doing these now too, and they may be a touch thinner, but they're also more expensive and have less options.

And that's all I have for you today. What are you wearing? Any favorites from today?


  1. I love the haley and the hound shirt so much... must haaaave.

    1. Thank you! They're not on the site right now, but I'm really hoping they bring them back!
