Union Jack

Just back from a wonderful trip in the UK, still with the Union Jack on my mind, I was browsing through Instagram and came across this super cool new UK brand Chillout Horseware with their fabulous Union Jack inspired items.

I chose the denim Chillout Horseware knee-grip breeches for this look today and tried to find as many UK brand to complete the look. How about this horseshoe print button-up shirt by Rydale? Or… a showstopping red vest by UK queen of style and horse lover Stella McCartney?

OK, I had to cheat a little bit with the Ralph Lauren cable knit V neck sweater, but still, it’s a nod to English heritage style, right?

I’ve accessorized the look today with some more UK brands like the Fairfax and Favor navy Windsor handbag, a pair of Hunter Boots short Chelsea boots and the Charlotte Dujardin inspired Charles Owen AYR8 helmet in the Union Jack colors.

The, to finish off the look, I added a pair of Brogini boots, which might sound Italian, but they are actually part of the UK John Whitaker brand, a Ted Baker black belt, and a pair or Roeckl gloves.

Now, in true UK style: keep calm and ride on in style!

 

Lady Marmalade

Lady Marmalade

One my favorite shades this season, or well, any season really is this wonderful dark and sweet marmalade orange. I was therefore completely over the moon when BR Equestrian sent me one of their winter base layers (Titania) to try in this beautiful shade. I love it so much that I decided to offer you some outfit inspo around this marmalade colored statement item.

I paired it today with some classic beige Ariat Olympia full seat breeches, which I own and love as well and layered on a grey Uniqlo Ultra light down vest as well as a chocolate brown Snow Secret packable down jacket and brown Charles Owen retro GR8 helmet.

Who doesn’t love a pair of matching boots socks? I sure am a fan, so I added in a pair of BR Equestrian argyle boots socks into the mix worn underneath my personal favorite boots: the classic Alberto Fasciani logo dressage boot in antique brown (read all about these beauties here).

A few more super accessories finish off this look in style: a Bindya winter bandana scarf to match the whole look, a pair of light-colored Roeckl grip gloves, a Sijll Button Bill wool hat and a pair of New Balance sneakers to slip into after your ride.

Have a stylish ride!
