Riding In Style - Equestrian Inspired Lookbook

Growing up I always loved animals. Dogs, cats, birds, turtles, hamsters, horses, you name it. I thought I wanted to be a veterinarian in my younger days but we see how that turned out lol. Horses have always been fascinating creatures to me with their large frame, big eyes, long lashes, elongated snouts, and silky  mane; although I've only been horseback riding twice in my life (I need to add that to my ever growing bucket list). Not only am I mesmerized by the horses I am also taken aback by their riders. The riders wear timeless, classic fashion statements which can translate into great looks for the Fall. This post is an "Equestrian - esque Lookbook" to show you how you can pull off the equestrian look with a spin.

The main essentials to create a perfect riders replica are: some type of leggings (if you are not comfortable with leggings you can always replace it with dark wash denim jeans), soft girly blouses, structured jackets or blazers, cardigans, slim fit turtlenecks and most importantly RIDING BOOTS!!! Below I put together a montage of cute riding boots from stores I love to visit frequently.

1. South West - Bakers - $99.99
2. Thigh High Buckle Trim Boots - - $40.20
3. Tsunami (Red) - Steve Madden - $89.95
4. Intyce (Cognac) - Steve Madden - $139.99
5. Fanlant - Aldo - $170.00
6.  Unknown (I just thought they were really cute, I LOVE the color)
7. Suazo - Aldo - $80.00
8. Laverdiere - Aldo - $190.00
9. Fifty Fifty - Bakers - $199.99
BONUS: Here is a really cute way to creatively rock your riding boots. Add a pair of high knee chunky socks over a pair of leggings or tights. You will be sure to ride out gracefully.

Will you be "riding" in style this season? I know I will! :)
