Thursday's Threads: May the 4th Edition


Happy Outfit Day! I might have missed the opportunity to wear my birthday outfit, but I did NOT miss out on Star Wars day! So even though Eros and I wore this on Tuesday, I'm sharing it for Thursday's Threads this week. Here's what we wore:

We went full R2D2. Pammon wore the C3PO pad though. I wish I snapped a photo of his too. Sorry about that! Maybe next year.

Let's start with Eros.

Bridle: Punk Ponies
I thought the holo bridle was kind of star wars-y, no?

Saddle: Butet
Saddle Pad: Etsy seller Houndstooth Horse
Half Pad: Ippico

I have matching polos for the pad and a bonnet, but somehow the polos were not where they were supposed to be. I'll have to hunt those down before next year. And it wasn't bonnet weather, so we skipped that part too.

Boots: Punk Ponies

Since the polos were MIA, holo boots seemed the next best option.

I promised you guys different boots and helmet, and I have to say, I did deliver! Are you ready?!

Helmet: Samshield
Why yes, I have been holding out on you guys... I got this during helmet awareness month, but haven't worn it until now. The rails and the emblem are actually holo like my bridle! I bought it to match the unicorn boots (which it totally does) but I didn't wear the boots today due to weather. (Those boots only come out on mud free sunny days.)

Top: Fifth Sun
This is ridiculously soft and comfy. Plus, that weird drawstring cowl neck can double as a mask if you forget yours!

Belt: Buckle Down
When I was in high school, I bought a belt from Delia's that had a seat belt for a buckle and beer caps all the way around it. The belt itself was rubber made from a tire. (Okay, not the most high school appropriate belt...) I loved that thing. Still do honestly, and I still have it! Since then, I've discovered Buckle Down Belts. They always use a seat belt for the buckle and have all kinds of strap designs. Super fun. This is the R2D2 one.

Breeches: Tailored Sportsman
I figured some basic blue breeches worked here. 

Boots: De Niro Salentino
My OG blue De Niro's stretched too much and are too big now. They are in my for sale section as a result. I hadn't planned on getting another pair, but I stumbled upon these on closeout at Equiport. IN STOCK IN MY SIZE. (I ordered the next smaller calf size, perfect fit!) And well... when you find boots on sale in your super weird size? You kinda have to have them. I love the croco details on this pair. I paired them with Mane Jane spur straps that I already had which are a near perfect match!

Okay, that's it for this week. Any favorites?
