Hello loves!! I swear I love a good last minute photoshoot.I was feeling so uninspired Sunday night(the day I usually shoot) and I was not even going to post.So I grabbed a fashion magazine, and all kinds on inspiration ensued.This fun look is my take on the equestrian look.
Cute riding caps, structured blazers and the classic riding boot are all fabulous on their own, but combined with the power of the equine , you have a classic signature look that can take you from the stables to the streets. If you frequent my blog , then you know how I like to add my own spin on things and this look is no different. Instead of the traditional palette of black or navy blue and khaki, I went with a tartan plaid and hunter green. My blazer is my latest thrift find at mere $3.The pants are corduroy by Jessica Simpson and were a steal for only $1 at Plato' Closet. They usually have a super sale on clearance twice a year where it's all $1.I racked up big time. To find out when a Plato's in your area is having their sale , be sure to follow your local store on instagram. They usually announce it there. I added a white button down , but of course I added some flair. This Karen Millen short sleeved top is structured and provides all kinds of frill and fancy (which you can't see unfortunately because it was freeeeeezing when I shot , and I had no plans of opening my coat..NO PLANS!) .When I first saw this top at the thrift store I thought it was kinda ugly. After closer inspection I looked at fabric quality and attention to detail. I never heard of the name before so I googled it. Karen Millen is a high-end UK based brand of classic wares. After learning that and the face the top was $3, I was sold. It pays to research names you find unfamiliar in thrifting. My cap is no ordinary riding cap, of course, it definitely all ears. My 'devil ear' (or so its called) cap was purchased from aliexpress.com .At $5 a pop , I made sure to get every color. This hat is super cute and garners much attention! I hope you all are not getting tires of seeing my faux fur stoles, because it's cold and I need them!
I added my grey one for warmth and I loved the color contrast as well. I didn't realize it was that cold outside otherwise I would have grabbed my new thrifted Express overcoat that I got for 4 bucks. My oh-so-fancy faux suede flat boots are a few years old from Forever 21 ($30).I almost forgot I had them; I know that is terrible. My bag is also thrifted. This lil cutie was in need of some serious TLC when I found it for $3.I took this structured granny bag from ashy to classy. I used my leather conditioner that I use for my car and cleaned her right on up. My pom poms were a nice fun touch and for about a buck a piece (aliexpress,com) I could not say no. A red lip was only necessary for this look , but my Ruby Woo alone could not do the job. I used black liner in the corner of my lips and then applied Mac Ruby Woo over my full lips. To help, I used a small eye shadow brush to smooth the outer edges of my lipstick to create this 2-toned look.
I hope you guys enjoy this post.I was shooting in 35 degree weather for the love of fashion. If that isn't dedication I don't know what it is.lol
That's Just Me!
I love fashion, the outdoors, and things on sale.
