Thursday's Threads

Outfit Day!!!! You guys. Are you sitting down? I got up at 5:45 this morning and went running with a friend. No really! I did. I mean, we only ran one mile. But still. I did it! Which means I also have a running outfit to share today! Let's start there:

Obviously the best day to start running is when (according to the weatherman) it is oppressively humid outside. Dive right in!

Top: New Balance
I figured wearing my Outrun 38 tank would give me a little extra motivation this morning. It didn't... But it was a nice thought.

Tights: Fila
My favorite thing about running is that neon is totally acceptable. These have reflective spots on the yellow stripe as an added safety feature.

Shoes: Mizuno Wave Sayonara
I'm so glad I found Mizuno. They have been completely life changing for my running. It's really important to have sneakers that fit you well and provide the appropriate support for you. Everyone is different, so Mizuno might not be your magical shoe, but they definitely are mine! Plus they often come in bright colors. On a side note, can you believe that shade of white my legs are? #howtospotarider

Our first run was super short. We only went a mile. But it was a non stop running mile, and I'm gonna be honest, it felt great! I for sure could have squeaked out another, but it was nice to start easy, and have it end easy too. I didn't break any records. It was a SLOW and steady mile. But it got done and felt good, so that's all I wanted.

Ok, on to my work outfit:
So country summer isn't it?! I've loving anything checked lately. I found this tank last year, but this is the first time I've worn it this season.

Tank: One Clothing
I like the little criss cross thing that's going on in the front there. I also like that it's a roomy cut so I don't feel like I'm hanging out anywhere.

Belt: C4
This belt gets worn A LOT. I had no idea when I bought it just how many outfits it would match.

Jeans: True Religion

I like the whisker detailing these have at the top. I mean, I realize fake wrinkles are pretty ridiculous when you think about it... but they do look cute.

Shoes: Western Chief
Why yes, these do match the belt EXACTLY. The checks on here and the belt are a lot smaller than the top, but I think it's working ok. These shoes are made of rubber which I find kind of hilarious for some reason. They're a nice soft rubber though, and are super comfy. They'll be perfect when the storms roll through later.

Arm Party!
You had to know my inner five year old would show up somewhere today, right? Here she is! With this shiny Unicorn bracelet I bought on Nantucket. In a children's store. Shut up. It's adorable.

This is like the Canadian Tuxedo of jewelry. Righty's bracelets are made by me, and consist of a horse clasp bangle and a wrap bracelet.

Speaking of horses... I almost didn't have a riding outfit for you today because we were supposed to get some severe weather during my riding time last night. Thankfully it held off long enough for me to hop on Rio so I do have something to share.
PINK! I actually have some pretty fab pink and black half chaps but I wasn't feeling motivated enough to wear brand new leg wear last night. All in good time. I'm sure you'll see them eventually.

Helmet: Charles Owen AYR8
I found this brand new fancy pants helmet on ebay last year from a British Seller for well under $100 shipped. I'm not one to pass up an awesome deal on something pink so I clicked buy it now pretty quickly.

Polo shirt: Horsewares
These are on sale pretty much everywhere, so if you like it, go snap one up! My favorite thing about this shirt (other than it being pink and covered in horses) are the pretty buttons. They're a mint green with gold on the edges. Such a nice touch!

Belt: Ralph Lauren
Another fun ebay find. I love poking around on there when I'm bored at work when I have free time. You never know what you'll find at a crazy good price. This pink stirrup belt was a steal!

Breeches: SmartPak Piper
These are an older model of the pipers with the regular knee patches (as opposed to the newer gel ones). I like the Pipers well enough. I don't think they're as comfy as some of my ariat or TS breeches, but they're definitely good enough for the price point. And the pink piping doesn't hurt either.

Boots: Caldene
Alright you caught me. You may remember that I had very similar looking boots but they were made by HKM. After wearing them a few times, I realized they were a bit too big so I sent them off to Used Horse Stuff. But then I really missed them, so I went looking (on Ebay obviously) to see if I could find them smaller. Instead, I found these beauties which I liked even more. The zipper placement makes them much more comfortable and easier to break in. And I love how the toes are capped too. And the wooded heels. There's a lot to love here.

Spurs: Professional Choice
Straps: Ovation
You can't have boots with croco detailing and not have matching spur straps. That's clearly some kind of fashion don't. These spurs are cute too with the little blingy horse shoes.

That's what I'm wearing today! How about you? Any favorites from today? What are you favorite running shoes and/or riding boots?


  1. I'm wearing the same thing I wear every day. Jeans and a t-shirt. My fashion blog would be very boring. I am jealous of your unicorn bracelet though.

    1. Understandable, it is pretty magical!
      Jeans and a t-shirt are the most comfy. It's a good choice.
