What I Wore: Equestrian Chic

There are some styles that just never fall out of fashion.  Who doesn’t love a chic equestrian look?  The elegance of a riding jacket and the timelessness of a pair of riding boots keeps this look relevant.  I will admit that the silhouette of actual riding pants are not very flattering but they can be easily substituted with a pair of skinny jeans or even faux leather leggings for an extra kick.

I found this gorgeous blazer during a semi-annual sale at Nordstrom over a year ago.  I was smitten by the tails on the back and the faux leather accents.

Usually I wear black or brown skinny jeans with this outfit but decided to switch it up a little bit by wearing these army green ones by Trafulac.

Shoe Review: Area Forte Riding Boots

The only thing better than a great pair of boots is a pair of military-inspired boots.  I first saw these Area Forte riding boots in Anthropologie last season and instantly fell in love….but not with the price.  I scavenged the web and found the same boots for way cheaper on 6pm.com.  I was delighted to add these unique boots to my collection.   The subtle mottled look to the brown leather give them a vintage feel making them so intriguing.  The design is also very interesting with a lace-up detail on the front and rustic silver buttons along the side.  This is the type of boot that makes a statement even though it’s a classic that will be relevant for years to come.  They were definitely worth the investment :-)
