Hey everyone, how's your week going?? Mine is going well but it's being a bit overwhelming because we're in the last two weeks of classes before Christmas break. My list of things to do only keeps getting bigger and bigger, please send help! 😬
I've been dying to show you this outfit from last weekend. I got this jacket for my birthday (October) and I've only started wearing it now...it's so pretty that I don't want to ruin it!
I'm sure most of you know this jacket - it's the most famous jacket from Equestrian Stockholm! I've seen dozens of photos of this jacket on Instagram and always thought it was beyond gorgeous. It has such a gorgeous color, although I have to admit I'm the biggest fan of pink, and it feels very cozy while still looking super chic...not to mention the softness of the fabric!!! Just like the brand refers on its website, it is foam padded and contains 25% of coffee oil in its composition - I didn't even know something like this existed!
I also love the cut, it is 100% Carolina's style. However, there's something I can't stop thinking about, the jacket is so structured around the body, fits like glove and then you look to the sleeves and it almost makes me think that I bought the wrong size because they're too big. Well, I bought the smallest size so that can be the right answer...that's just how they designed it! I know the sleeves must large enough to accommodate layers but I think the jacket would look even better with tighter sleeves!
I decided to wear my new training top by Hart Equestrian under the jacket. I'm also very impressed by the fabric of this top, it's very soft but with the vantage of featuring a sweat-wicking technology. I have no doubts, this one will be one of my best friends during Summer. For now, I'm just using it as a base layer and I wish I had a photo of its back because it's definitely the best thing about it but, unfortunately, it was too cold to take the jacket off - I promise I'll show it to you on my Instagram stories!
What could be better than a #ROOTD with two of my favorite colors?! That's right, a #ROOTD with three of my favorite colors! This color looks so good on my grey that I had to get myself a belt that matches one of his saddle pads. I've said this a thousand times but braided belts are the best for thin girls like me, sometimes I can't find a belt that's small enough but this type of belt always saves me - they fit everyone! Plus, they're the cheapest belts and have the biggest variety of colors. The one I'm wearing is also from Hart Equestrian.
You already know this pair of breeches, I got them on my visit to NYC at Manhattan Saddlery and they're from RJ Classics. After the Kadi breeches from Kingsland, they're my favorite pair because they're super comfortable and the knee patches give me life! They're so different from what we find in Europe, I wish RJ breeches were sold here...
Hi, everyone! Today I bring you news about the latest product from GPA. I am talking about the new connected (yes, CONNECTED) helmet they just previewed at Equita’Lyon – how crazy is this?!
There aren’t many photos of this helmet yet but I can already tell you some of its features. It looks just like the new GPA helmets I talked about here but it will have a fall detection system and a bone-conducted audio system incorporated.
The fall detection system will be useful for riders who usually hack alone. In case of fall, it sends the rider’s coordinates and it will be much easier to find the rider.
The audio system seems even more unique to me. The headsets I often see riders using look a bit weird, I know they are super helpful but I would much rather prefer getting the same result without having to carry any extra pieces with me! I’m also loving the fact that the sound is bone conducted, which means the rider will be able to hear everything around him – something that doesn’t happen with the regular systems because earphones block the noise!
Well, as they say it...safety legend! Hahaha 😃
I’m so curious to see riders use this helmet and once I find someone using it, I might have to ask that person if I can try it!! What's your opinion on this? Tell me below!
Hi everyone! Have you seen my tack haul from NYC? If you saw it, I'm sure you know that my top is from Dover and my breeches are from Manhattan Saddlery! Although I showed you what I bought, I still wanted to show you how these look paired together - this has got to be one of my best #ROOTD's!
Although I was planning on buying brands that I could only find in America, I fell in love with this Polka Dot SunStopper shirt from Ariat! I wanted to get a sun shirt from Tailored Sportsman because that is an iconic brand from America but I thought this one was cuter!
There is a women's version of this shirt but the first one I saw was in the kids section and it was way cheaper so I grabbed a large one and I think it looks great.
I love how lightweight this shirt is! I know wearing long sleeves in the Summer is weird but it definitely keeps me cool and the "ultra-fine" mesh panels are great to keep moisture away from my skin. I rode 3 horses yesterday and I felt Ariat's Moisture Movement Technology working!!
Before my flight to NYC I was already sure that I would buy a pair of breeches from RJ Classics. I spent months drooling over their breeches but I wasn't sure of which color I would pick because their website had too many options! However, when I visited Manhattan Saddlery they only had them in navy, black and dove gray which was a but disappointing but I still brought these with me.
These Gulf Knee Patch breeches are already on my list of "the most flattering breeches on Earth" and they are C-O-M-F-Y!!! During this year I've realised that, in most cases, there is really a difference between "cheap" and "expensive" breeches regarding comfort. RJ breeches are not the cheapest but they are one of the most comfortable pairs I own at the moment. I hope I will be able to buy these in other (funnier) colors if I ever visit the US again!!
Before saying goodbye, my belt is from Horse-A-Porter, the socks are from Kingsland and the sneakers from New Balance. I felt I needed these three items to complete my outfit!!
