Thursday's Threads

 


Happy outfit day! It's a short one because the horses didn't dress up last night. But... next time I wear this theme, they will join in for sure. (Hint... something fun is coming!) Anyway, here's what I wore to ride last night:

It was super chilly here for a couple weeks, but the weather has taken a warmer turn, which I'm thoroughly enjoying! It's been in the 60's which is pretty nice for riding. Plus, I don't have to wear fifty layers.

Helmet: One K Mips
It took FOREVER for this helmet to get here. Size small long oval was delayed from the factory I guess. But it was worth the wait! I found this helmet to fit exactly the same as the regular One K helmets meaning it's very comfy. And the added safety from the MIPS is great to have. I chose to replace the front vent and the piping to the hunter green option but kept the center panel black. I like it! Side note: I emailed Samshield to see if they plan to incorporate MIPS into their helmets and was told "we don't need to" and sent some video about why their helmets are already safe. So that's disappointing. 

Top: Twenty Second

It's surprisingly difficult to find a top with some cow print, but not entirely cow print... So I was excited to find this one on Zulily. 

Breeches: Botori
You all can blame Molly for this one... She found these and posted them to her insta story, and obviously I needed to get a pair. I almost didn't because they are tights, and I'm 100% not a tights person. But I couldn't pass up those cow print patches. And I'll tell you, those side pockets are pretty awesome. I'm not a tights convert by any means, but this pair can stay.

Boots: Celeris UK

I still think these are amazing. I really can't decide between these and the unicorn boots as my favorites. It's a tough call. I will admit, for the sake of being completely honest, I did break the bottom snap on one of these boots. I'm not sure what was happening, but it got stuck (couldn't unsnap it) and I pulled too hard and it came out of the leather. My spurs hold the flap shut though so not the biggest deal. PROBABLY why they don't recommend this leather for a full boot though. 

Arm Party!
Lefty:
Um. Yeah. Well. I saw that C4 has a cow print band and was like yep. Add to cart. It happens. The little bit bracelet I made though!

Righty:
Righty is wearing the Fitbit in a boring black band along with a couple of other bracelets I made. I was so excited to find that cow print leather!

And that's it for today! Any favorites?

  1. Uhhhhhh whatthefuck Samshield? What kind of a response is that?! "New tech came out that seems to make things safer but we're safe enough thanks"

    1. Right?! Like, super your helmet tests well, but why not make it even better?

  2. Animal print in general is rarely my vibe, but I really love watching you rock it. Those tights are something else, it took my brain a while to figure out that the cow print was your knee patch not the boot in the first photo, haha. Awesome!

    1. I go back and forth on animal prints. For awhile I shunned them. But well. Here we are.

  4. I asked about Samshield and MIPS a few weeks ago when I was at my local tack shop and the girl who does the purchasing said they have not mentioned MIPS at all so this response, while it sucks, does not surprise me. Why do anything when people are already buying their product I guess? I personally won't buy another one though, I'd like to have the safest option and there are plenty of good looking MIPS helmets out there. I'm sure the selection will only continue to improve.

    1. Agree. I can't say I won't ever buy one... Since I ordered one a few weeks ago. But I really do hope they either change their stance or some other company comes out with something similar that has MIPS. I like having all the options!

  5. I can't pull off animal print but I do really like the cow print on you. Too bad the helmet doesn't have a removable panel which you could then slip a cow print one into

    1. Ya know... some of the parts do come off... I'll have to see if it would snap back on if I wrapped some fabric on it...

  6. Love this outfit combo! You always looks so nice. I'm lucky to having matching clothes most days. LOL

    I'm needing a new helmet sometime soon-ish and I'm sort of dreading starting to shop around. Although Samshield is off the list right away! I'm a long oval head shape also, so good to know about the one you have!

    1. I'm generally not too hard to fit with helmets. To be honest, I've only tried on the Tipperary MIPS and this one. The tipperary was too round for me. This fits me exactly the same as the non MIPS which was so nice to discover!
