One stop shop

Ariat one stop shop winter 1819

One of my favorite brands Ariat, is one of my favorite brands because whenever they launch a new collection, there is always something there that I love for any and every aspect of the equestrian life: Street, Stable, and Show. Some items work wonderfully in any situation: show shirts and jackets are great classy and comfortable business attire and a cotton V neck can work for any occasion.

So, if you’re looking to do a one-stop-shop for your winter must-haves, look no further! Here’s an overview of some of my favorites, but there are many many more love items that did not quite fit with these looks, but are absolutely wonderful too (check out the new Ariat Fuse plus sneakers or the Tassel cruiser range or the many cute prints in the sun shirts or the Lowell 1/4 zip tops or…. well everything…).

Taking the ‘rains’

The days are getting shorter, the nights longer and the mornings colder… yep, Autumn’s is on its way! What I love about Autumn is the gorgeous coloring of the leaves and the great layering of early winter fashion, but, one thing I don’t particularly like though, is the relentless rain this season seems to bring with it. Nowadays though, rain really is not that big of a problem anymore around the barn and or on your horse. Gone are the yellow plastic raincoats, the heavy contraptions that shield you from the rain but make you sweat like a racehorse or the musty old wax coat that rears it’s ugly head every year.

Inspired by the rained out World Equestrian Games, I thought it would be time for a little raincoat round-up.

Here are a few of the best stylish and functional mid-season raincoats available out there right now:

A lightweight jacket for spring, summer, and autumn made of material and functionalities perfect for any activity in any weather. The jacket is insulated with a thin layer Sorona See Pro from DuPont, an insulation that provides maximum warmth and low weight while produced of annually renewable plant-based ingredients. The jacket provides just the warmth you need a chilly spring day or evening and the outer layer prevents the water from coming through a rainy day. The collar is high and has a comfortable fleece on the inside.

The skirt is thin rain resistant functional with elastics on the inside and zippers at the front and back which enables you to perform your activity in rainy /and or windy weather without interfering with your mobility. The skirt is simple to carry with you and to take on and of.

The Dublette, expandable rain jacket, is an elegant, lightweight and waterproof jacket. It can expand over a back protector, backpack and/or bulky layers. When one tightens the bungees on the back and down the sleeves, the Dublette takes on its most elegant form with a cinched waist and fishtail swing at the back. In addition, the Dublette has a detachable cape which adds extra waterproofing on the shoulders and takes the brunt of heavy rain. Ideal for riding thanks to the longer back that goes over the saddle,  the high viz details offering a safe ride, and the noiseless, waterproof (10.000MM) fabric.

195.00 EUR

The main event

The main event

Eventing season is officially in full swing! The cross-country section of the 3-day events is most certainly one of my favorite things to watch. I wish I were brave enough to actually do it…. for now, I’ll stick to being a stylish spectator 😉

What to wear to one of these magnificent springtime events? Lots of layers and a mud proof item or two. I came across these incredibly cute Joules teal green and flower print wellies, which not only posed as the color pallet inspo for this look but also are pretty much the best footwear for countryside eventing viewing.

Wear them with a pair of soft blue Kingsland Kadi breeches, a soft pink Kudamono Lyocell blouse, a classy Oughton Limited belt and Joules Laurel green padded gilet.

For your ride, swap your wellies for a pair of dark brown lace-up custom Kempkens dressage boots, wear your suede Antarès helmet with pride and don’t forget your trusted pair of Roeckl grip gloves.

Before leaving the house, remember it can be chilly in the countryside, so throw on a stylish and functional Louis Vuitton logo scarf.

Enjoy all of the wonderful equestrian sports this season and have a stylish ride!

 

Emerald evenings

Emerald

Even beautiful days still have chilly evenings. This is why I was looking to add the perfect lightweight jacket to a #rootd today. Imagine my joy when I came across this stunning snake print windbreaker by Kenzo: the perfect summer evening companion for a stylish ride!

The emerald colored elements in the windbreaker fit perfectly with a pair of emerald green Fix Design breeches and best wear it with a neutral beige lightweight Agnes T shirt form Samsoe & Samsoe.

Highlight the grey hints in the jacket with a pair of Samshield V skin gloves, a Tailored Sportsman quilted Clarino belt, a KASK Dogma carbon helmet and a pair of stunning Parlanti Parigi zip grey boots.

finish off your look with one emerald green carry all tote bag by Kara.

Hummingbird

Hummingbird

Have you seen the latest collection by Valentino: such a beautiful array of bird prints and embroidery. An absolutely perfect choice for a spring time #rootd. One of my favourites is this Hummingbird print blouse, which goes great with a pair of olive green Calea grip breeches by Cavallo and an HV Polo denim blue vest.

Match the blue vest with a pair of Uvex sport style gloves, a pair of Linda Farrow aviators and a KEP Italia custom helmet. Then, ad the final touches to your look with lightly burnt orange customised boots by Kingsley, a matching vintage Chloé woven leather belt and the it-bag of the season: the Soleil mini bucket bag by 3.1 Phillip Lim.

Enjoy the spring time birds and have a stylish ride!

Born to ride

Born to ride

Whether you’re hopping on you Harley or getting ready for a ride with you trusty steed, you’d better look the part with this biker chic #rootd.

Check out this stylish and functional Knutsford leather trim wax cotton biker jacket, which looks great with a pair of dark denim Pikeur Darjeen grip riding breeches. Give the look a little more edge with a Victoria Beckham turtle neck top and add on pair of custom Celeris riding boots with matching spur covers.

Black is the color of choice for biker chic accessories and the Antarès Chagreen glossy helmet is absolutely perfect for this look. Add on a shiny black Lacoste Chantaco belt, a pair of black BR Equestrian All weather Pro gloves and finish off the look with a super cute Sienna Jones classic black bucket bag.

Bamboo Blue

Bamboo Blue

Whenever I hear Bamboo, I immediately think of furry panda’s chilling in the sunshine munching on a branch. It is however, also a super inventive technical material that makes sportswear more durable, more breathable and super soft.

It’s really worth a try, especially when it’s incorporated into a pair of stunningly cut breeches like the Espoir Equestrian Maquette Navy Bamboo breeches. Wear them with a classic HV Polo shirt and a beige Uniqlo bomber jacket.

Add a few electric blue accessories to match the breeches like the Roeckl grip gloves and a Lacoste cap as a solution for the dreaded helmet hair situation.

Complete your look with some brown rider essentials like the Alberto Fasciani woven leather belt, a pair of Horka Tiffany croco riding boots and a custom croco KEP Italia helmet.

TGIF

TGIF

Yep, I’ve got that Friday feeling’ alright! Looking forward to a wonderful weekend filled with fun and horses. Weekends are for casual classy comfort and this #rootd has it all.

The Pikeur spring collection has the loveliest colors this year and this old rose sweater Premium Quenya tech vest is particular nice, especially when worn with a funky Horseware Lottie top and a pair of HV Polo full seat denim riding breeches.

Brown is always a good choice for a casual and classy look, especially with the new Uvex Suxxeed glamour helmet paired with Ariat Challenge control field boots, Roeckl gloves and a Fossil skinny braided belt.

Bring all your essentials for the day in a Longchamp Roseau Medium Fleuri Reversible Canvas Tote and make sure to bring along your Black Knight Accessories rider wristlet for your phone, keys and other little necessities when hacking out in the beautiful spring weather.

Monday motivation

Monday motivation

Mondays can be really hard, especially if you’ve had a great weekend filled with family, fun and horses. Combine a bit of sleek grey and black sophistication with a bright pop of bright Magenta for a great way to start the week.

The Cavallo Calea grip breeches are bright and brilliant and go wonderfully with a Maje Toronto floral print shirt worn underneath a Uniqlo steel grey quilted light weight bomber jacket.

Add a pair of great grey Uvex Sport style gloves and enhance your look with a classic KEP Italia helmet. Steel the show with a pair of Glenchecker custom boots by Unicorn Exceptional.

Add on a few more pops of magenta with this cute Banana Republic scarf and the retro Casio G-shock watch, and bring your phone and keys with you on your ride with a Gucci classic logo belt bag,

What you wear to ride (or work), can really boost your Monday motivation and set you up for a great week.
