Weird horse girl right here… I’ll be the first to admit it! Riding was my sport of choice all throughout grade and high school, and it’s something I haven’t been able to get out of my system ever since. I remember the days I longed for literal riding. boots. before they become a nation-wide winter staple (#hipster) and to this day have two old Troxel helmets in my closet.

So needless to say, you put something… anything… equestrian in front of me, and I have no self control. Luckily for me, equestrian touches almost always have a classic feel to them, so I can indulge in my obsession without seeming weird. (If I do seem weird and I’m not noticing it, someone please tell me…)

This sweater (which is so similar to this $500 one…) was no exception. I can’t wait to go all-out and pair it with these swoon-inducing boots, white jeans and this amazing vest in just a few months!

Now watch me whip… watch me neigh neigh.

Had to.

Love from Texas,

  1. Love the sweater! Such a great find since it is so much cheaper than the designer one!

  2. That sweater is so adorable! I love how you paired it with the skirt. I’ve never been riding before, but I’ve been looking to try. I had a fear of getting on a horse as a child as much as I loved the animal itself. It’s on my bucket list though!

  8. I’m a crazy horse girl here too…in fact I own six right now! You made me laugh so hard with your last line by the way-can’t wait to caption a riding picture with that lol. Also, loving that sweater…I’ll have to pull my same one out of my closet and wear it this fall!

    Kate, the sweater is to die for! Question – what size are you wearing? I’d like to get this a bit oversized like you’re wearing it, but don’t know which size to order. Thanks!
