Truthful Tuesday

Today's confession: I wore a show shirt to work yesterday. On purpose!

I've been drooling over the products from Ronner Designs for awhile now, but their price tag is not in my range. So when I saw that Mary's Tack and Feed had some of their shirts on sale... well you better believe I tossed one of those in my cart immediately.
But here's the thing... I chose a show shirt. I haven't really shown in three years. (Other than that Alumni class a few weeks back!) And when I do show, I wear plain white 98% of the time. The shirt I chose has horses on it. So I wasn't completely sure I'd want to show in it. I WAS however, completely sure I didn't want to wait until forever to wear it.
The shirt arrived Saturday, and I LOVED it! But (there's always a but), the collar is really big on it. Like it looks kind of ridiculous on my skinny giraffe neck big. But the shirt itself? GORGEOUS. I love the fabric. It's a bit heavy so wouldn't be a great summer show shirt, but it is an active type material. The cuffs and collar have a gorgeous striped pattern on them. It's seriously SO nice! I paid around $80 for it, which isn't cheap by any means, but reasonable for a show shirt anyway. Maybe a little too high for a work shirt... but I'm in love with it. Anyway, I've decided it won't be a show shirt, but I do plan to wear it as a regular shirt lots. Without further ado... Here it is:

Do you have anything from Ronner? Have you worn a show shirt for non-show purposes?

    1. That's a good idea! Hunt coats are so much nicer looking than regular blazers anyway.

  2. I've been thinking about doing a post of this. I've been wearing a few of my riding shirts to work. They're perfect for being a bit more dressy than my usual t-shirt, but still comfortable and breathable.

  4. I have a pair of paddock boots that are retired from riding (soles are worn flat) that I wear often as “regular” ankle boots. People pay ridiculous amounts for look-alike paddock boots, so I figure why not wear the real thing?

    1. I wear paddock boots to work a lot! I have "work" paddock boots that I decided I didn't like riding in, but were too pretty to get rid of.

  5. I have some old button down shirt shirts I can't part with yet. I have been planning on wearing one to work! With black breeches that just look like designer pants. I feel ya!🤣
