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…).

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!

Into the blue

Into the blue

I don’t know about you, but I’m really into the bright blue that’s part of this season’s Ariat collection. I’ve worn the Ideal Down vest featured in this #rootd and am sure you will be seeing it back many times in my fall/winter #rootd’s over the next few months: bright, beautiful and practical all at the same time.

I paired it with the classic Ariat Olympia full seat beige breeches (both in real life and in this #rootd) and would recommend adding a sleek and contemporary denim Adina shirt by J Brand.

Accessorize the look with an Adi Kissilevich Silk In Love Scarf, a pair Hauke Schmidt Magic Tack embellished gloves, a ‘Blue ribbon’ Shop Hunt Club Derby belt, a Samshield Miss Shield dark blue ladies helmet and a pair of Petrie polo boots.

Add a few street to stable finishing touches with a pair of Ray-Ban club round sunglasses and bring your essentials for a day at the barn with you in a Lodis Audrey Cecily Satchel.

Have a wonderful weekend and a stylish ride!

 

Mid season must have

Mid season must have

Technically it’s still summer…. but I can already feel a little chill creeping up on us in the early mornings and late evenings…. so, best to get ready to dress for the awkward cold morning/hot day in between season weather.

The newest addition to the Uhip line-up is the perfect piece for that indecisive in-between-weather day: The Hybrid short sleeve jacket offers a mix of fabrics and insulation for warmth and weather protection where exposure is greatest and breathability where body heat needs to escape. The hybrid construction also offers a flexibility and freedom of movement for activities outdoors, like riding of course.

Stylish and functional, what’s not to love? Wear it with a pair of navy blue Ego7 Silicone full seat breeches and a white sleeveless Adidas x Stella McCartney polo (…another example of perfect functional style!).

Accessorise your look highlighting the orange and navy blue color scheme with a pair of Covalliero Gloria marine gloves, the sophisticated KEP Italia helmet, a woven orange belt and a pair of dark blue Stivaleria Secchiari boots.

Adda a few more touches of orange to take this look from stable to street with a pair of vintage Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses and Hogan sneakers.

Have a stylish ride!

 

Sage and spice

Sassafrass and sage

Add a little bit of herbs and spices to a gorgeous green and beige summer #rootd.

The Cavallo Clarissa grip breeches are the most beautiful melee of greens, greys and beiges reminding me of a sumptuous summer herb garden. Wear it with a soft sage colored Kain Classic tank top and a beautiful beige Cheap Monday cardigan.

Spice it up with some grey accessories like the Petrie polo boots, a pair of Roeckl grip gloves and matching Salvatore Ferragamo vintage belt.

Slip into a pair of H&M sage green sneakers after your ride while sporting a matching pair of Givenchy Aviator style sunglasses.

Finish off your summer look with the stunning moss green KEP Italia helmet.

Have a stylish ride!

 

Summer bloom

Summer bloom

Summer is the perfect time of the year to wear some bright and fun colourful breeches like the Caldene Derby low waist full seat in Canary yellow (available at Tackville). Wear it with a peachy pink Prana foundation scoop tank top and throw on a Wildfox meadow flowers Marquis print hoodie for when it gets chilly in the evenings.

I went for all suede in the rider accessories for this look today: Suede custom brown boots by Königs, a suede brown belt by J. Hilburn and a matching elegant Uvex Suxxeed Glamour suede helmet. Not suede, but still a perfect addition to any summer look are a pair of Roeckl grip gloves.

Do bit of summer test training by listening to it on your headphones before hopping on your horse with these ones from Urbanears in color Camelia and a yellow case for your phone by Casetify to match your look.

Bring everything you need for a summer’s day at the barn in this super cute canvas and straw cabin tote by Muuñ.

The fine line

The fine line.png

It’s the fine line work in the horse design that really makes this outfit come to life!

I’m absolutely in love with the new Horseware collection and this bright red Flamboro polo with horse deign embroidery is definitively one of my favourites. Highlight the dark blue embroidery with a pair of Ariat Heritage breeches and throw on a lightweight Alessandro Albanese Sarah summer sweater in the color sandstone and match it to the Alessandro Albanese cap and Mondoni Bolivia gloves.

Accessorise your look with a KASK Dogma helmet, a  pair Tucci Harley field boots and a matching Dy’on Fancy belt.

And don’t leave the house without a matching pair of Luisa Viaroma sunglasses and a London Fog Markham phone wallet.

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.

Competition to cocktail

competition to cocktail.png

For all of you stylish equestrians out there for whom the competition season is in full swing: some inspiration on how to take your look straight from the show ring to the champagne cocktail afterwards.

I could wear this Cavalleria Toscana GP show jacket all day every day: it’s so classy! If you’re lucky enough to compete in a country where they are not so traditional with the competion dress code, then wear it with a powder beigy pink Pikeur show shirt and your best pair of Euro Star Laura full seat breeches (with a tiny bit of bling…. who doesn’t love a bit of bling for  show look?)

Match your Uvex gloves and KEP Italia helmet to your De Niro boots to complete the show look. When getting ready for the champagne cocktail, swap your boots for a pair of Valentino Rock Stud heels, add on a lightweight scarf and steal the show with the Daltons by Emma Louise suede snaffle belt.

Bring all your valuable with you to the cocktail int his practical and stylish Mansur Gavriel mini backpack.

Good all of you out there in the show ring, and have as stylish ride!

Life is sweet

Life is sweet

Sometimes you need you phone case to remind you how sweet life really is. This summer sorbet case from Casetify does that perfectly and is the inspiration for this summer sorbet #rootd.

Take the dark beige PK International Renovo breeches as a base, add on a soft yellow layered top by Fabiana Filippi with a minty fresh H&M Bomber jacket and a hint of strawberry pink with an H&M cap.

No summer sorbet is complete without some chocolate sprinkles on top which are represented by the KASK Dogma helmet, a pair of Königs Grandchester dressage boots and Roeckl gloves.

Add a few more hints of the super summery pink with a pair of round framed Ray-Ban sunnies and super cute Converse high tops to finish off this summer sorbet look for you today.

Have a stylish ride!
