Barns and Horses - Literary Stylings

Tuesday! We can do this!
I'm all equestrian again.

  • Jacket - Talbots, consignment; purchased here for $15.00
  • Sweater - Harve Bernard, thrifted; last seen here in July 2014 with many summer colours
  • Skirt - Gap, thrifted; last worn here in August 2014 with more green
  • Shoes - Bruno Magli, vintage 80s, thrifted; last seen here in October 2014 with yesterday's sweater

Loved this blazer, loved, loved, loved. It's felted wool, no lining, just sewn and the seams are felted smooth. Seriously, I showed it to one of my sewing coworkers and she was boggled by it. It was snuggly and warm too!

This is my entry for "Literary Stylings" over at Gracy's - go!
I'm not actually riffing on anything that I've read lately, but I love the equestrian look of this (particularly my "barns and horses" silk skirt). I used to have that rabid love of horses, as young girls often do, and read all kinds of short stories and books about horses. "Misty of Chincoteague" was a particular favourite that I read over and over again. I cannot for the life of me remember any of it.

The stuff:
My sweet 80s shoes! These just scream corporate suits and big shoulder pads, don't they?

Minimal bling:
Rushed this morning. My imagination was not in gear.

  • Belt - Club Monaco
  • Earrings - Aldo Accessories

Balls it is!


  1. Nice blazer. Two decades ago, I visited Chincoteague and saw wild ponies in the woods. They're even prettier than you expect without the grooming domesticated horses have. Wooly beauties.

  2. "Balls it is!" - inspiration for any day : > Love that skirt and jacket. xo
