This month I’ve styled three outfits for you guys – from kicking it around the barn to the show ring. The best thing about all of these is that everything I have on is SO comfortable, which is a big deal for me. Not only are we in these clothes most of the day, but especially when I’m competing, I don’t want a heavy shirt or restricting jacket to distract me from performing at my best. I’m really excited about some of these unique, new pieces from Kingsland Equestrian that I’ve paired with some oldie-but-goodie favorites from my closet.

 I think these are my new favorite breeches. I love the color, and the fabric is stretchy but sturdy. They have just the tiniest bit of bling on the back belt loops, and the best part is NO velcro at the bottom of the legs. This shirt is made of a “performance” material so it doesn’t stick to you like a normal t-shirt would when you sweat. I added this fun statement belt since it’s a schooling look, and how great are these laceless sneakers for hanging out in?

 I know the blue breeches are bold, but I think they’re fantastic! The best way to wear something like this is to pair it with a neutral top and keep everything else understated. I’ve been seeing a lot of this royal blue lately in new riding attire, and I think it’s a great look in the jumper ring – especially on a grey or black horse! These also have back pockets which I think is a fun detail. This zip up jacket is a great performance material as well, and easily transitions from the schooling ring into the lower level jumper classes earlier on in your horse show week.

Let’s get one thing straight – white pants are NOT easy to wear! The key is to find a flattering fit and a good heavy material that still breathes, and these do the trick for me. If I’m going to wear a show jacket, I’m all about a sleeveless shirt underneath. This one has an awesome color blocking pattern and rhinestone buttons from the collar down that make it flashy and fun! The jacket I’m wearing I’ve had for quite awhile, but Equiline still makes them. I love it because it’s a gorgeous, quality jacket but lightweight and breathable as well. The buttons are shiny, but still black – and my mom had a gorgeous Bordeaux colored collar and lining added to make it special.
