Thursday's Threads


Outfit Day! Today is the last day of Chanukah, so we have one more festive post to share. Eros even had a partial outfit to share... I say partial because I forgot to grab the quarter sheet and boots that matched his saddle pad. Ugh. Sorry. We'll start with his outfit:

Saddle: Butet
Saddle Pad: Hopeful Equestrian
Quarter Rug: B. Vertigo

Eros' saddle had blocks added to it, and I got it back last week. It feels SO MUCH better! Not sure why one wouldn't want the blocks, but whoever owned it prior to me had them removed. Glad to have them back where they belong. I should have grabbed a second photo so you could see the pad. Sorry guys! It has Chanukah symbols all over it: Menorah, Torah, Star of David, and Dreidel. I want to get a new set for next year in blue though because I have yet to find a purple sweater to match.

Boots: Ariat

These are a great purple color so they match the pad. But I'm mad at myself because I had made tabs for my interchangeable boots in matching fabric to the pad and then promptly forgot them by the door when I left to go ride. (Also have a matching quarter sheet I forgot to grab. Ugh, I'm the WORST!)

Bridle: Camelot RCS Gold
Browband: Boy O'Boy Bridleworks
Bit: Sweet Billy's

All three kids have this same bridle/browband combo at the boarding barn. Eros also has a jumping bridle for someday when he can jump again.

Okay, my turn! 

Yep. It's cold. Time to bust out the winter boots. And I was wearing that mask despite being all alone by then because it kept my face warm.

Helmet: One K

I got the blue! It's a little brighter than I wanted. They don't have the best options in blues unfortunately. I'm hoping they'll offer more colors in the future. I mean, how do they not have Rose Gold?

Sweater: Tipsy Elves
This sweater isn't as ridiculous as some of my other Chanukah sweaters, but I think it might be my favorite. I think you've all seen it before, I've had it awhile.

Belt: C4
Yes, you saw it last week. I told you... I only have the one!

Breeches: Dover Wellesley
I sold a few pair of my size 30 Dover breeches as they were too big (they run pretty generous) so when Dover had them on BOGO for Black Friday I ordered some 28's. This is one of them. I like the tan contrast with the navy. A little different!

Boots: Tredstep Legacy 
Everyone was saying their feet were frozen yesterday. NOT ME! I've said it before, and I stand by my statement: If you live somewhere cold, you want these. Prior to owning these my feet would get so cold they would turn blue, and on really bad days white. Completely frozen, no circulation happening. But with these boots, even on the coldest days, that doesn't happen. If it's ridiculously cold, like single digits, my feet may get cold. But I haven't yet lost feeling. I'm not sure they're still making these faux fur lined ones, so if you're interested, get yourself a pair asap! I'm thinking about getting a second pair so I can have them forever.  I just got a back up pair. Someone take away my internet.

Arm Party!
My Chanukah band finally showed up earlier this week. So my watch changed it's outfit and I paired it with the Ettika Star of David bracelet.

Righty is donning a bangle I made from some cheapo beads, my fitbit in its navy outfit, and a stretchy dreidel bracelet.

And that's it for today! Any favorites?


  1. Man those boots are really tempting me! It's my feet that get the coldest when I'm riding outside all winter long...

    1. If you're thinking about it, act fast! They don't seem to be making them anymore.

  2. I kind of like that sweater... I really need to up my hanukkah sweater game next year assuming people may actually see me? LOL. I think I want that pad in blue. Can you remind me next year I need one? Pretty please? I'm on a budget right now.
