For the sake of making this post shorter I'm just going to talk about my summer riding attire, because living in New England means I have entirely different wardrobes for each season, and all the random weather in-between. I'll start from the top and work my way down.
For as long as I can remember I've been an IRH fan. They are hands down the best fit for my head, and I think they're classy enough for what I want to do (a whole lot of schooling). It keeps my head fairly cool and I've had my current helmet for 2 years without it starting to "funk" yet.
In the past I've always worn random T-shirts (usually of the tie-dye variety) to the barn but since moving to a "classier" barn in the fall I figured I should at least attempt to dress the part. Fluorescent solid fitted-ish shirts was the best I could do ;) Target had a bunch of these shirts for sale this spring and I think I bought 5 of them in different colors. They're all solids and pretty much match all my breeches, along with being super lightweight yet not see through. Win all around for me.
I've blogged a time or two about my favorite breeches before, and I basically stick to two kinds... Tredstep and Kerrits (but the newer kerrits, not the tights). I might be the only person in the whole entire world who likes Tredsteps, because everyone else I know has hated them, but they fit my random proportions perfectly. They look very nice in my opinion, I love the material, the fact that they come in full seats, and the sock bottom. My only complaint is that they don't have more colors :(
One thing that I'm not a snob at all about are tall boots. I've always bought cheap-o boots, taken good care of them, and they do the job. I've had these Ariats (from the children's department.... muahaha) for a few years and they're still chugging along.
As far as accessories go, I like functionality and I like to have fun. I used to be a die-hard crochet gloves fan, but when they stopped making them in velcro closures I made the switch to the Noble Equine gloves posted above. So far I really like them, and am hoping they hold up!! Zocks are definitely my favorite socks for riding. I haaaate thick socks in general, never mind under tall boots so I have a wide variety of Zocks to choose from.
And now for some photos of the outfits in action ;)
