I’m trying to stay on a stricter budget this year but clothes don’t last forever. Inevitably, a new pair of breeches or a new shirt become a necessity as older clothes start to fall apart. I try to buy quality stuff that lasts, but every once in a while I try a new-to-me brand that doesn’t live up to expectations, or simply falters under the daily wear-and-tear of riding. With all this in mind, a handful of brands have proved their worth to me and always come out with new and cute stuff seasonally. So here are my Spring 2017 picks!
Romfh Sarafina Breeches in Lake Blue
I recently sold a few pairs of breeches that fit me weirdly. Sell 2, buy 1, kind of like that whole promulgate one rule, repeal two … or something. I love both the Lake Blue and Periwinkle color for Romfh’s Spring 2017 collection, but ultimately decided my closet jives with Lake Blue the best. (Super curious about the new Gabriella style, too — anybody tried them?)
Asmar Equestrian Devon Technical Show Shirt
I don’t need another show shirt, but if I were in the market, this would be my first pick. The few Asmar things I have are outstandingly crafted and have worn very well. Plus look at the back design! C’est chic.
EGO7 Orion Boots in Chocolate Brown
What color looks great with lake blue? Yep, these exist now. I have been nothing but impressed with my current pair and my brown Ariats are basically dead (after merely a year!). These are an economical choice, too, when compared to custom.
Build-Your-Own GPA First Lady
You can do this now. Go do it. (Admittedly, I only just now found this option but maybe it’s already been around a while?) Seriously, no, I do not need another helmet. My hope is that when I do in a few years, the First Lady designs are still around because the shape fits my head the best.
