“Workin’ 9 to 5, what a way to make a livin’ ” yeah, Dolly Parton got it right, we all wish we could be at the barn with our four-legged darlings all the time, but a girl’s gotta work to pay the vet, hay, feed, farrier, equestrian fashion, saddle pad addiction…. well you know, the endless list of glorious horse lovers’ costs.
So, if you do find yourself running from the business meeting to the bakery to the barn and back again, better make sure you do it in style.
We’ve been lucky enough to enjoy the very first rays of early spring sunshine over here and this immediately puts me into a springtime color mood incorporating lots of oranges and pinks into a still warm and functional street-to-stable #rootd.
Denim breeches are always a good way to take an equestrian outfit straight from the street to the stable, especially if they are as cute and classy as this pair of Cavallo Chaya grip breeches. Wear them with a bright orange Astraet turtleneck sweater and layer this super cute Patrizia Pepe tailored lightweight floral print down jacket on top.
For the street style part of the look, wear a pair of cognac suede New Balance sneakers to match your vintage Hermès belt and top it off with a pair of Illesteva blue toned aviator shades. Bring your office with you in style wherever the day might take you (barns are great remote working spaces, I promise!) with a computer bag and laptop cover to match your look.
For your ride, swap your sneaker for a pair of classic cognac colored polo style boots by Petrie, wear you matching Hauke Schmidt Arabella gloves and top it off with a blue One K Defender Helmet.
Wishing you a successful working week and a stylish ride!
