On Saturday, Aimee, Caelen and I went for a drive and we ended up going to The Equestrian Fashion Outfitters. I've ordered from them on-line before but wanted to visit because it's easier to purchase when you can try the clothes on. Equestrian clothing varies wildly in their sizing so it's not always easy to buy on-line. It is a lovely little shop packed with all sorts of brands. Including one of my favourites: Horze.
Normally I buy things on sale and haphazard. This time I actually put an entire 'look' together. I tried on a pair of horze tights and ended up having to go down a size. But they were so comfortable:
I also bought this shirt (again, going down a size- Horze is good for my ego!):
I've been wanting a vest for a long time but they are not easy to buy- so many won't zip up over my chest or are so baggy that it's awkward to ride in. But this one fit perfectly:

I also helped my niece pick out some clothes- we got matching breeches. I might not be allowed to come back for a while....
Like I said, this is the first time I actually made an 'outfit'. Certainly other of my tops will work with these as well. But I felt rather snazzy. So I closed my eyes and handed over my credit card.
Because looking good is important, right? God, am I shallow?
That sounds totally worth it!ReplyDelete
Sometimes you just have to, right?Delete
Shallow is buying things you don't need by a longshot to follow a trend you disapprove of.ReplyDelete
I took your advice and finally bought the Roeckl gloves, not Madison, but Milano. I tried the Madisons but they literally got lost in the mail! I hope the Milanos are as sturdy. I don't need gloves, but for the first time in my life I want good riding gloves. Cuz...oh dangit I don't know.
I also have this itch to buy more lambskin saddle pads. No need whatsoever.
And now we have this looming impossible purchase which will either move us out of our property, or complete it. Shush, I'm not supposed to say.
you are killing me with the suspense! I love riding with gloves and Roeckl are great ones.Delete
Ooh - I LOVE that vest!!! This looks like a lovely outfit.ReplyDelete
It is snazzy. And warm without being bulky.Delete
Can't wait to see you wearing it!!ReplyDelete
I should have taken a photo when I was in the store but I didn't think of it!Delete
I like the outfit! =) Great for clinics or photos for your blog!ReplyDelete
Horze breeches tend to be too long for me but I like their variety.
They do have lots of variety. I hope Carmen approves. ;DDelete
Looking good has no price. 😂❤️ I went on a buying spree last year, but since I KonMari’ed I’ve been going real sparse. Not that it saved me any money. I just buy more consumables, like good wine...oh, and a new truck.ReplyDelete
I love your new truck. It is my dream truck. And wine is never frivolous....Delete
Shopping posts are my favorite! I like your new outfit, especially the vest!ReplyDelete
Thank you! I enjoy reading about others shopping finds too.Delete
Love the neck on that vest!ReplyDelete
It is a neat design. I like how it's more like a scarf then a collar.Delete
oh man, good vests are so so SO worth it!!ReplyDelete
I've been wanting one for a while. I like how it's not bulky.Delete
Gorgeous outfit. I especially love that vest!ReplyDelete
Thanks! The vest is a nice one.Delete
If you look great, you ride great. It's a proven fact.ReplyDelete
I'd like that vest - I'm a sucker for an asymmetric neckline.
I hope that turns out to be true!Delete
Oh that vest is so pretty! I love vests, they're amazing for fluctuating temperatures. I find pretty outfits motivate me to hold myself accountable and ride prettily. Hopefully you enjoy!ReplyDelete
I love vests too. Riding in a coat feels more restrictive.Delete
LOVE the vest. It looks so cozy!ReplyDelete
It is very comfortableDelete
I do enjoy a ridiculous amount of zippers so I can get behind those breeches lolReplyDelete
LOL, but maybe not in full seats. :)Delete
Great outfit! You'll look good and feel good and that's what really matters. Money is no object when it's for a good cause right?ReplyDelete
Exactly. :) you guys are such enablers.Delete
That's a beautiful vest. And as said above, looking good and feeling good is great.ReplyDelete
Thank you. I agree looking and feeling good seem to go together!Delete
