Frosted Tulip

Frosted Tulip

When searching for the perfect name to describe pretty much my favorite casual street-to-stable look for this season, I came across the name Frosted Tulip for this beautiful shade of soft and delicate pink and thought it would be a perfect fit for this late winter very very early spring warm, functional yet feminine #rootd.

Most of these items are in my wardrobe at the moment and this is one of my favorite ways to combine them all starting with the super cute softy pink House of Horses Helsinki raincoat. Not only is it extremely cute, it’s also functional with it being washable and has both side and back snaps to open it up during a rainy ride. I however also love just wearing out to town on a casual rainy day.

I love the pink and grey combo and usually wear the raincoat with a grey hoodie like this Equiline ‘Funny’ sweater and a pair of my favorite affordable and fabulous grey denim Crescendo breeches by Horze.

Add a pop of color to the look with the Ariat Lowell technical shirt and Ariat Ideal down vest in this beautiful shade of bright turquoise and accessorize it up with an H&M grey and pink scarf and a pair of matching Timberland light pink boots.

Add some classy navy blue riders essentials like the Samshield classic Shadowmat helmet, a pair of Roeckl gloves, Shop Hunt Club Victory Gallop Derby belt and a pair of dark blue Stivaleria Secchiari dressage boots.

Have a stylish ride!

 

Everything is better with a hint of mint

Everything is better with a bit of mint

Freshen up an already cool winter #rootd with some hints of mint this cold January. Lots of street fashion and funky accessories have gone into this riding look, which makes it the ideal street-to-stable or office-to-stable look for those busy back to work days.

I immediately fell in love with this Sportmax Code Geyser horse print sweater and just had to incorporate it into a street-to-stable outfit. I would love to wear this super cute sweater with a fresh minty Uniqlo rayon long sleeve and combine it with a pair of Cavallo Caro denim full seat breeches and a classic black Hugo Boss bomber jacket.

For the ‘street’ part of this street-to-stable ensemble add a pair of mint Nike Air Force 1 sneakers and a matching Barbour scarf.

For your ride, match you Kep Italia grey Cromo T helmet to your Uvex Sport syle winter gloves and grey trimmed Tucci classic Allegri field boots.

Now, for all the fabulous accessories that complete this look: start with minty fresh 90s style scrunchie to hold together your tresses during and after your ride, make sure you smell like winter walks and pine trees with this equestrian lifestyle inspired luxury fragrance 2nd by Daxau Style, then add a few subtle touches of rose gold with a Cluse x Negin Minuit watch and the must-have equestrian item of the year: the horse logo necklace by Desori horse.

B&B

b and b

A bit of Blue and Blush (B&B) to get you through a cold and harsh winter’s day. And, as a bonus, I’ve added another “B” in the mix: a classy shade of brown to pull together the whole look.

I’m a huge fan of tailored shirts for riding, especially in spring and autumn, but for wintertime, why not layer one of those beautiful shirts by Fior da Liso, like this baby blue and blush Diana II one underneath a blush pink LK Bennet Adele cashmere sweater.

Wear it all with a pair of timeless chocolate brown Macy breeches by BR Equestrian and top it off with a beautiful shiny navy blue Bianca jacket by HV Polo.

This is to perfect look with which to rock a pair of metallic blue boots, like these Ottaviano boots by De Niro Boot Co, especially when paired with a sleek Samshield blue helmet and brown Roeckl Julis gloves. Then, add on a matching Pampeano polo belt for function and style during your ride.

After your ride, swap your helmet for an H&M blush pink pompom beanie and your beautiful boots for a pair of functional and funky baby blue Hunter wellies.

The French connection

The French connection

A winter outfit with a little ‘je ne sais quoi’.

I was searching for a few statement pieces in a warm and wonderful mustard color and came across this Cloe lightweight packable down jacket by Just Over The Top (JOTT), a French brand that has quickly become THE authority in functional and fashionable lightweight down wear.

So, I continued the French connection today with a Pirate top by French brand Dada Sport and a pair of Harcour Eva breeches.

Of course, I had to add the quintessentially French brand Lacoste into the mix with a navy blue belt and burgundy scarf and topped it off with an Antarès Sellier Galaxy helmet.

To finalize this look, I had to search a bit further abroad for the best fitting items like a pair of Hauke Schmidt / Magic Tack gloves (Germany), a Forever 21 mustard colored beanie (US), a pair of Stivaleria Secchiari blue boots (Italy) and last but not least these super cute Ralph Lauren rubber Jodphur boots.

Hope you’re loving the French connection as much as I do!

Bisous, bon weekend and have a stylish ride!

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.

Blue steel

Sometimes I can’t resist a good deal… so when I saw that these Horze crescendo grey denim breeches were on sale I just had to press ‘put in cart’ …. 

Then of course the very first thing I did was to figure out all the stuff ways to style it out. I’ve shown one of the many options I came up with here today, hope you like it!

I partnered the Horze breeches with a dark navy blue Lacoste polo shirt and matching carry-all tote bag. Of course I neede to find a way to incorporate my antique brown leather Alberto Fasciani riding boots, so I paired them with tag ing Roeckl gloves and and Isabel Marant Etoile belt.

A good #rootd like this need a matching phone case, so I went with a dark bay blue lizard leather one by Vianel and a statement accessory like a vintage Louis Vuitton logo scarf. I then finished off the look with my stunning navy blue Back on Track EQ3 helmet.
