Thursday's Threads: Travel Edition

It's travel day! So it was completely unintentional but I actually match my luggage today... I'm such a dork.
I know it's a lot for a long weekend... but my helmet and boots are so bulky.
I was stupid excited when Vera Bradley made a print pretty close to my barn colors. And I waited very patiently for this pattern to get to 50% off and then I jumped on the new luggage set. I think I should have gotten two large bags though as they aren't actually that big. I'll pick one up after the holidays when they're on super sale. Anyway, we're not here to talk about my luggage. Let's see what I'm wearing to the airport today:
Layers! This cardigan isn't the most airport friendly as it has a metal zipper and a magnet inside. So I'll have to take it off to get through security. But not the end of the world.

Sweater: Sweet Rain
I LOVE this cardigan airport unfriendliness aside. But I definitely shrunk it some in the wash. (Yes I know I've gained weight, but I don't think my arms got longer!) I'm not sure if it's still out there in the wild, but if it is, I may try to get a size medium.

T-shirt: Sport Horse Lifestyle (I think)
I layered my sweater with this silly tee shirt that I think came from Sport Horse Lifestyle. I think it's a pretty accurate description of my riding skills. Fake it till you make it my friends!

Belt: LV
I used to plan to wear either a C4 belt or one with an easily removable buckle to the airport, but the last few times they asked that I remove the entire belt anyway, so I didn't bother today. This one is cute and matches the tee shirt nicely.

Jeans: True Religion
These photograph really bright, but they're actually a really dark inky blue with a coating on top. I think the waxy coating is what photographs funny. These are a favorite pair of mine.

Shoes: Steven by Steve Madden
These are from Steve Madden's fancy line. Which is kind of funny because they kind of look like they might be from the juniors line. But either way, they're super cute, and I got them on clearance at Marshalls for the junior line pricing.

Arm Party!
Lefty is wearing a photo bracelet featuring my best friend along with my trusty apple watch. I wanted to wear my Kate Spade #bestie bracelet too, but it's currently temporarily in an undisclosed (to me) location.

Righty is wearing a pretty leather wrap bracelet from Blackcat Leather which is a local artisan right in my little town! The other is a vintage gucci bracelet, that I absolutely love.

So that's what I'm wearing to travel in today, but fear not, I also have a riding outfit to share!
It does not match the decor...

Helmet: One K
Jampy wanted to help model my helmet. I love that his tongue is out like that. He's such a weirdo.

Sweatshirt: Gray and Co Designs
It's no secret I love high octane coffee. And ponies.

Belt: generic, buckle Ovation
I used this cute Ovation buckle with a faux alligator belt to match my boots of course!

Breeches: SmartPak Pipers
I really like the gel patch Pipers. I have a few pair now. This one is a pretty close match with my sweatshirt!

Socks: Dreamers and Schemers
These don't really match my outfit, but they spoke volumes about my day at work.

Boots: Caldene
You guys haven't seen these in awhile! I really love these boots, but the right one wrinkled the wrong way at the ankle and is completely digging into my leg. Any suggestions on how to fix that? Or do I just keep wearing them and they'll work it out? It's fine once I'm on but walking around is torture!

And that's it for today! Any favorites from today? Big plans for the weekend? I'm off to enjoy some sunshine and my yellow pony!
