Mocha mood

Check out this marvellous Mocha #rootd and be prepared to go brown for this summer season too. Truly one of my favourite shades for this season, or any season really.

It all start with a pair of statement breeches: how about this pair – the Cara full eat printed by Horze. Wear it with a timeless basic white V neck T shirt and a sophisticated brown Dubarry Wilde Gilet vest.

Match your Suede brown Königs boots to your Samshield Miss Shield suede and gold helmet and your SSG gloves. Continue the hint of gold with a gold woven high street skinny belt and a pair of Converse sneaker to change into before and after your ride.

Beat the summer sun with a pair of Saint Laurent classic 57 sunglasses and a use brimmed customized Riata Designs hat.

Summer breeze

Summer breeze

We’ve been blessed with some truly glorious hot summer days over here, but fickle as the Swiss weather is, this morning the temperate dropped all of a sudden towards early spring levels and it was truly a bit chiller than I thought it would be.

I need to take my own advice and be prepared for any kind of weather in a sophisticated blue street to stable #rootd like this one.

I recently posted a picture on Instagram of a collection of colourful boots and this actually gave me the idea to style and outfit around a pair of those eye catching beauties. This baby blue pair is the style Aachen (very appropriate at the moment thanks to the CHIO Aachen which is taking place right now) by Petrie. I was thrilled to find an equestrian style belt in exactly the same shade of baby blue by LILO collections to match the boots.

Wear it with a Fior da Liso Ivana blouse (great for chilly days and you can easily roll up the sleeves for a sophisticated hot summer day look too), a white Pikeur premium Questa vest and a pair of dark blue Covalliero Techno full seat breeches.

Wear your look ‘street’ style with a pair of Ariat Wexford H2O chelsea boots and matching Stella McCartney shaggy dear Falabella bag and ride safely and stylish with a KASK Swarovski encrusted helmet and a pair of Hauke Schmidt Touch of Class gloves.

Have a stylish ride!

Piaffe to pool

Piaffe to pool

We’ve been enjoying some absolutely gorgeous summer days over here – how about you?

The best thing after training a few horses in this the heat is the prospect of being able to dive in a nice cool pool after a long day. One way to maximise you pool time is to already bring your pool look with you to the barn.

Start off with a pair of light colored breeches (cooler in the sunshine than dark colors) like this pair by HV Polo. Wear it with a bright colored top like the turquoise Blumarine tank top and a pink Shop Hunt Club Derby belt.

Ride in style with caramel colored rider essentials like the KEP Italia helmet, a pair of Hauke Schmidt gloves and Stivaleria Secchiari boots.

When you’re ready to head to the pool, swap your helmet for a gorgeous customised Riata designs hat, your boots for a pair of Havaianas flip-flops (never around the horses though, you want to keep your toes!), your breeches for a pair of Rag & Bone denim shorts and throw your horse print John Robshaw beach towel as well as you PF50+ into your matching Roxy Got Rhythm straw beat tote.

Have a stylish ride and enjoy the summer sun!

That Fri-yay feeling

Fri YaY

Anybody else got that fabulous Fri-yay feeling? I certainly do: looking forward to a fun filled weekend of my very first dressage competition, drinks with friends and lounging at home watching movies.

I love trying to find that fine balance between comfort, technical features and style which then results in the perfect casual weekend #rootd.

I think the HKM Starlight riding leggings in grey with hints of black fits that description perfectly: lounge, lunge or ride and look great while doing so. Wear them with a casual pink River Island scoop neck T shirt and the best chilly morning companion: a Naketano Brazzo VIII hoodie.

A casual outfit needs a pair of matching sneakers and this New Balance Memory Marenello  pair fits perfectly into the relaxed #rootd color scheme. When heading out for your ride, wear your Alberto Fasciani comfortable and stylish 103 showjumping boots, a One K defender grey helmet and a pair of Roeckl grip gloves.

Accessorise your relaxed Fri-yay #rootd with a pair of Michael Kors yellow sunnies and the unmistakable Circus by Sam Edelman Deny Pouch.

Have a wonderful weekend and a stylish ride!

Color mountain

It might be dreary rainy cool summer day, but this Stella McCartney Colorful mountain print jacket can brighten up anyone’s ride.

Wear it with some classy and sophisticated black items like a Nike sports tank top and a pair of BR Equestrian Sequoia full seat breeches.

Continue the black themes in your rider accessories with a pair of Ariat FEI Monaco Lx field boots, the Back on Track EQ3 helmet (read the review here) and the BR Equestrian All weather gloves and CL+ belt.

Mirror the colorful jacket theme in some fun details to finish off your look: a pair of turquoise Armani Exchange sunnies, a hot pink Stella McCartney Falabella phone case and a pair of Fenty x Puma lavender sneakers.

Have a stylish ride!

Skull ‘n blossom

Skull and blossom

Skull ‘n Bones? No, it’s all about the Skull ‘n Blossom for this summer #rootd today: a funky floral twist on a rugged skull ‘n bones look.

The Cavallo Christin grip grey denim breeches are the perfect partner for the Alexander McQueen skull and blossom sleeveless T shirt. Wear a Uniqlo ultra light peach covered down vest over the top for a little feminine twist to the this rockin’ look.

Shade your eyes from the sun with either a pair of J. Crew Sam sunglasses or an H&M satin sun visor and make sur your ride safe and stylish with the Uvex Suxxeed Carbon Style helmet and matching pair of Sport Style gloves.

Finish off this look with a pair of black Ariat Heritage Contour field boots and a matching Black Rag ‘n Bone Boyfriend belt.

Have a stylish ride!

Double check

Double check

Make sure you do a quick double outfit check before heading out the door for a busy equestrian day.

You’ll be sure to look on point with a fresh take on a checked shirt. This one is by Current/Elliot and is best wont with a pair cream colored Ariat Olympia breeches and Ideal windbreaker in the freshest of peach tones.

This look is best completed with some warm brown rider essentials like the classic Charles Owen GR8 Helmet, a pair of Roeckl gloves, a Paul Smith No. 9 belt and a pair of Ariat Challenge Contour zip field boots.

Top it off with an ‘ after helmet hair’ Hollister baseball cap and a pair of Komono crafted Aston sunglasses…. do a double check and go!

Have a stylish ride!

 

Happy Valentines day!

v-day-2017

Happy Valentines day Stylish Equestrians! Celebrate the day of love with your loved one, family, friends and of course horses, but make sure you do it in style with this valentines day inspired #rootd.

Burberry has done an amazing job this year in giving us lots of stylish heart print items to choose from. I love this black and gold heart sweater and the signature Burberry scarf with a black hearts added for style. Wear it with a pair of beige Animo Nagiro breeches and a bright red Herno padded jacket.

A KASK helmet and a pair of black Samshield hunter gloves are the perfect companion for the customised Petrie boots: did you see the subtle red piping details and croc leather? A good valentines look needs a few more valentines themed accessories like the red Gucci double G logo belt, an Edie Parker heart shaped bag charm and a RED Heart of Strength Charm Bangle.

Happy Valentines Day!!

Have a stylish ride!

 

Vibrant winter vibes

vibrant-winter-vibesDays are getting shorter, it’s cold and most of the time its just grey and gloomy… so, let’s fight the gloom with some vibrant winter vibes. It’s all about colourful layers to keep you in a cheerful mood and looking great for your ride.

Wear your Ralph Lauren plaid bright cotton plaid shirt under a bright pink LL Bean zip front knitted sweater and add on an emerald green J Crew Petite excursion quilted vest for an extra layer of warmth. Pair it all with Pikeur Lugana full seat navy breeches, a matching navy blue One K Defender helmet and a pair of Roeckl grip gloves.

Bright colors go great with warm brown leather goods like the C.S Simko belt and a pair of Königs polo lace up boots.

Bring your phone in your hot pink Kate Spade cross body phone bag and pop on your emerald green YMC hat before and after your ride.

Have a stylish ride!
