Thursday's Threads: Valentine's Edition

Happy Outfit Day! I have a Valentine's themed outfit to share, both in and out of the saddle this week! I'll start with my work outfit since it's the most festive.
See?? Festive! And a little too small... but whatever. It's been a long winter.

Sweater: Brand unclear...
I can't tell what the tag says on this sweater, so I have no idea what the actual brand is. I think I got it Marshalls maybe? I've had it for YEARS. It used to fit a lot better.

Belt: Swanky Saddle
Nothing more appropriate for Valentine's day than a buckle that actually says Love right? Bonus points for spelling it out in horsey items.

Pants: VO Jeans
These are coated cotton pants, and they're a pretty awesome rose gold color which doesn't show in this photo. The color is more true to what you see in the belt picture above.

Shoes: T.U.K. Shoes
Even though conversation hearts weren't produced this year, I still get to wear them on my feet! And yes, those are actually boot socks I'm wearing. It's cold out!

Arm Party:
Lefty is wearing this adorable leather heart bracelet from Rustic Cuff. They had a giant sale on some Valentine's themed bracelet stacks, and I took full advantage.

These are all from Rustic Cuff as well. They came in two stacks, but I split them up today. I think these are ADORABLE! And the pink heart wrap bracelet will be cute for spring too.

So that's what I'm wearing at work, but I also had a Valentine's themed riding outfit with a SURPRISE!
Nothing looks too special here I know... But I'm gonna work backward today because I'm excited.

Boots: De Niro
You guys remember when I pretended to have self control and not order the navy De Niro boots for like two days, but then I ordered them? Well. They showed up crazy early (I didn't expect them for three more weeks) so I tried them on with last night's outfit. Truth be told, I didn't actually ride in them yet, I wore the Regals because it's sloppy out and I thought my horse might be a wild turkey. But I do plan to ride in them soon. Here are some better photos of them:

They are BUTTER soft, like crappy Regal soft, but the most lovely leather. I'm really impressed with them, and the sizing is exactly what the size chart states. They fit like a glove. They might not be as amazing as my logo boots, but they're definitely more comfy out of the box. Not sure how that speaks to durability yet, but time will tell.

Breeches: Horseware
You guys have seen these before, they're my Fourth of July breeches too. I'm not a big fan of the color red, but it has its time and place. Namely Valentine's Day and Fourth of July.

Belt: Swanky Saddle
Look familiar? Yep, I wore this last night and today. I actually wanted to wear a different belt last night, but I couldn't find it. So I went with this one.

Sweatshirt: Rue 21
This is what spinsters wear for Valentine's Day. Lol! I actually don't mind being single on Valentine's Day anymore. But the sweatshirt makes me giggle so I thought it appropriate.

Helmet: One K
Look how pretty the are together!!!! Match made in heaven... Now I guess I'll need to see about a snakeskin Mane Jane strap huh?

So that's it today! Any favorites? What do you think of those boots? Any big Valentine's plans today? I plan to hang with the ponies since they are my true valentines.


  1. Love the crocodile/snakeskin on the boots!

    1. Thanks! Me too! It's just a little, so not too crazy.

  2. I love those boots. I’ve been eying a black pair with the snakeskin top so anxious to hear how durable they are.

    1. Time will tell. I'm excited ride in them! (Kind of, new boots are always a little bit of a bummer the first few rides.)

  3. Yeah! Valentine's outfits! Love the navy boots - very snazzy! I sort of forgot it was Valentines day, so no big plans here.

  4. that belt buckle is adorable. i love the red pants too, but i have a pair of horseware pants and they seem to fit diametrically opposite to my own dimensions - tight in the very very wrong places, while simultaneously being unfortunately baggy in others :(

    1. It seems like each model of Horseware breeches fits differently. These are definitely a bit small on me right now in all the wrong places... but during the summer they were ok. The corduroy ones though, which are the same size, fit perfectly.

  5. OHHHHH Deniros!!! how lovely! They look amazing on you too!

    1. Thank you! I can't believe how perfect the fit is, right off the shelf! I'm super oddly shaped, so it's a bit of a miracle.
