Thursday's Threads

Happy Outfit Day everyone! As mentioned yesterday, there's been no riding so I only have a work outfit to share today. Fingers crossed for pony clothes next week!
Here's what I wore to work today:
It's definitely still winter here in CT (and from what I'm seeing, it's also winter in the south, settle down mother nature!). It was 9 degrees when I woke up this morning, but I think we actually may get above freezing today. Forties tomorrow, and maybe the fifties for the weekend though! Woohoo! Anyway, my point is, it's still sweater weather.

Sweater: Lucky Brand
I picked this sweater up at Macy's when I was down in Florida. They were having a sale on all Lucky Brand apparel and I might have stocked up on a few things... What I like about this layered sweater is that the blousey lining that sticks out the bottom is attached up high at the neck. So it actually is a full lining on the sweater. Often they just stick some fabric on the bottom.

Belt: Mane Jane
This is the flip side of my gold strap. It's actually also the flip side of my tan one... Yeah, I wound up with two straps with the same color on one side, but that's because the tan one was a stock belt that I found in the sale section.

Jeans: AG Jeans
I also grabbed these jeans when I was in Florida and realized I had under packed. Oops. Nothing very special about them, just your average blue jean. They have lots of stretch and are super comfy.

Boots: INC
Here they are! These are the boots I had to buy to fly home in due to that stupid Bomb Cyclone while I was away. I was so excited to find a color I didn't already have. It helped me justify the purchase. Plus they were 50% off. That helped too.

Arm Party!
Lefty is donning quite the party! First up is a gorgeous bangle wrapped in wine color thread from Nicole's Creations. The other two are waxed cotton bracelets from Pura Vida, and lastly is my trusty apple watch.

I know it appears I have two left hands, but I have the horse facing out today. Rather than flip the photo and have the horse upside down, I just left it this way. I promise it's my right hand. Anyway, righty is wearing a leather wrap bracelet and horse bracelet made by me. I hadn't been able to find these clasps for awhile, but thankfully my favorite craft supplier has them back in stock! Hopefully I can get back to creating soon. Rio ripped a large section of tail out a few weeks ago, and I'm thinking about trying to make a horse hair bracelet with one of these clasps. We'll see how it goes!

That's what I'm wearing today! Any favorites from today? What are you wearing? How's the weather in your area? Have you ever made a horse hair bracelet?


  1. It's finally warming up ( 30!) today, so I didn't feel the need to dress for Siberia to go to work. Hallelujah. I've spent more on coats and cold weather clothes in the last month...
    Also AG jeans are my absolute FAVORITE. And if you're ever in Chicago or Phoenix you HAVE to check out the Nordstrom Clearance Stores - they are amazing.

    1. I can imagine! But they should last you awhile, so at least you won't have to buy them again next year!
      Are those different than Nordstrom Rack? I have no reason to go to either of those places, but I might have to come up with one! #shoppingproblem

    2. They are! They're their two warehouses where all returns and other things go. Amazingness. Crazy but amazing. Like $600 shoes for $30 crazy. I need an excuse to go back too.

    3. WHAT?! I definitely need to figure that trip out asap!

  2. I would like to see how you organize your closet and jewelry!

  3. I am loving that sweater + boot combo!

    1. Thank you! I do find it a little funny that I acquired this perfect winter outfit in Florida...

  4. I've never made a horse hair bracelet. You'll have to do a DIY post if you make one.

    1. Well... I gave it a go this weekend, but discovered that horse hair is a real PITA to work with. I got lazy and wound up just braiding it along with some leather I had laying around. Problem was I used a cute little magnetic heart clasp for it, and it doesn't stay closed. So I guess it was a fail. I'll share it Wednesday, but tutorial will have to wait until I try again with better results.
