Life’s a beach

Life's a beach

Summer weekends are all about enjoying the wonderful early morning rides and long beach afternoons. Take your #rootd to the beach with a few simple swaps of shorts and shoes.

When riding combine your black Pikeur Prisca breeches with a blush pink Lacoste polo shirt and black rider essentials like the KASK Dogma Carbon Light helmet, a pair of Ariat FEI Monaco Lx field boots and a pair of the ultimate summer gloves: the Roeckl suntan gloves that help you avoid that dreaded equestrian glove tan line.

When heading to the beach, exchange your boots for a pair of Miu Miu blush pink platform sneakers, your breeches for a pair of H&M shorts and your helmet for a Riata Design customised hat.

Complete your beach look with a pony print bikini by Stella McCartney and a pair of flat lens cat-eye Romwe sunglasses and bring it all with you in a blush pink Corto Moltedo Costanza Beach Club Medium Natural Nappa Leather bag.

Have a stylish ride!

 

Beach time

Beach final

Summer is fabulous, especially when you can spend some quality time at the beach. Dress and pack smartly to be able to start of your day with an early morning ride and then head straight to the beach with this summer #rootd.

Keeping the colors and fabrics light keeps you as cool as possible in the summer sun. The signature Euro breech from Asmar Equestrian is an excellent creme colored summer pair. Combine it with a white Spiced Equestrian white snaffle polo and add on some classic must haves like the classic Alberto Fasciani dressage boots, Samshield classic helmet, Samshield hunter gloves,  and a Mango Bay Design snaffle belt.

Pack your beach essentials in your Saint Laurent beach tote. When packing, make sure to bring your D’Epony bikini with stirrup details and matching lightweight beach towel, a pair of Helmut Lang shorts, Dior sunglasses, Vanner Hats Savannah hat and a pair of Joie Phyllis wedge sandals.

Have a stylish ride!

 

 

Eat, Beach, Sleep, Repeat…

E B S R

Pretty much an ideal schedule for a hot summers’ day. For us equestrians it would have to be Eat, Ride, Beach, Sleep, Repeat, but hey, close enough for a hot summers’ day #rootd.

The Eat, Beach, Sleep, Repeat shirt, the hero of this #rootd, is from Banana Republic and is the perfect summer partner for the Annies Equestrienne Ladies Original Blue breeches. Always head out with a nice light weight vest, as even hot summer days can have chilly mornings/evenings. This soft yellow vest is from Moncler.

Keep the rider accessories stylish in neutral shades of beige and white. One of my favourites the KEP Python white helmet, ideal for hot days, as it keep you head cooler than with dark coloured helmets. The Mountain Horse crochet gloves are playful and stylish alternative to ‘regular’ gloves. A brand I recently discover is Donadeo Collezioni Italia and they do the most exquisite custom boots in a wide range of styles and colours, like these cream coloured beauties.

Finish off the look with some colourful accessories like the Vismaya Habutai paisley print scarf from Calpyso St. Barth, a baby blue HV Polo baseball cap, Victoria Beckham classic aviator sunglasses in yellow, a ‘mixit’ skinny belt 2 pack from JC Penny’s and bring along a big Oilily tote bag to carry all you need for a hot summers’ day.

Have a stylish ride!
