Thursday's Threads: Thanksgiving Edition


Outfit Day! I love that Thanksgiving is always on outfit day. Makes it easy for me! Al will be our model today since he wore the most tack on this vacation day. Here's what he had on:

Bridle: Joseph Sterling
Browband: Made by me

Sorry it's so dark. No need to turn the lights on for a light flatting day... Though Al was a spooky a-hole so perhaps I should have turned some on. Anyway, YES, those ARE INDEED turkeys on his browband!

Saddle: Butet
Saddle Pad: Equine Star
Half Pad: Ippico

Um... No one tell my saddle lady how dirty this saddle is in this photo! It's really just a little ring dirt from the stirrups. Nothing permanent. But yikes. I'm ashamed. Anyway, peep those turkeys on the pad! I made the same mistake this year as last in that I did not remember to bring my brown half pad and had to use this navy one instead. And no, it does not match at all. What can I say? I've been kind of failing at Thursday's Threads lately anyway, so this should surprise no one.

Boots: Equine Star

Yes. More turkeys. It's Thanksgiving! Buckle up, cause they're gonna keep coming... Just not quite yet. 

Here's what I wore to ride:
Apparently we didn't turn on any lights anywhere today... I swear it wasn't actually as dark as it seems in the barn today.

Helmet: Samshield
The fact that my helmet is completely crooked in this photo is actually pretty on point for what the shirt says. So let's roll with that being why. Anyway, I swapped out my black and rose gold boots for a different pair because those are needing some repairs, and this helmet looks fab with the substitution so I brought it along too. 

Sweatshirt: I can't recall what brand this is. Sorry. It and I are both quite old at this point.

Ha! See? Makes sense my helmet is askew. This hoodie makes me giggle every time I wear it. 

Belt: Sure isn't Hermes...
I got this belt strap long ago. I can't remember if it was Amazon or Ebay. Wherever it's from, it's definitely not Hermes. It wasn't sold as a knockoff or anything so no foul play there. The buckle though? It came from Ebay and its authenticity is very unlikely. It pairs so nicely with the orange belt; does it really matter?

Breeches: Dover Wellesley
Yep, you saw these a few weeks ago for Halloween. It's nice when I can get a few holidays out of one pair of pants!

Boots: Celeris UK
Funny, this photo is a lot brighter on my phone than it is on the computer. Sorry about that! (Let's blame Blogger for that.) Anyway, these were a pair of sample boots so they aren't a perfect custom fit, but for what I paid, they're certainly close enough! I like to keep a pair of not so crazy boots at the barn for lessons, so these will be filling that role for now.

And since it's a holiday, and I managed to take things a little too far with my family dinner outfit, I'll be sharing that as well. But before we do that... Here's what the pups wore to Grandma's house today:

That's right, these lil turkeys wore turkey sweaters! P kind of hates clothes, but she tolerated this sweater pretty well today. Rita on the other hand LOVES a good sweater. And this one actually fits her pretty well. 

Okay, and here's what I had on:
I couldn't crop Rita out of this. Look at that face! And yes, once I actually saw the sweater with the pants, I realized I'd gone too far. But I decided to roll with it anyway. I mean, you guys all know me by now. 

Hahahahahahaha! Right?! I know. It's something. But full disclosure, that stuffy turkey snaps on to the sweater, and I did not actually wear it attached all day. He's kind of in the way. I think Rita REALLY wanted to play with it though. 

Belt: Not Hermes still!
I wore the same belt to the family meal. It worked well with both outfits!

Pants: Unbranded
I'm not sure what it is exactly, but I am always drawn to patchwork clothing. Must have something do do with being a teenager in the 90's. That was kind of a thing back then. Anyway, when I stumbled across these ridiculous pants I needed them. Zero regrets. Though I think they'll look better with a nice solid colored top. 

Boots: Band of Gypsies
I have no idea where these boots came from or when I got them, but they look brand new. It was nice to wear some cute shoes for once! I feel like I haven't worn anything but barn shoes, boat shoes, or flip flops for the last like three years. Though I guess that's a lie, because I did wear some real shoes to the theater the other week. Regardless, it's a rarity these days. 

Alright, that's it for this week. Hope you enjoyed the silliness and the lack of navy! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!
