the equestrian way.

free people march '11 catalog
over the weekend, husband + i got to see my niece ride at a local equestrian center!  she has been riding for years and i love that she follows her heart to do something different than the other kids her age.  i'm tellin' ya, this girl is special.  leading her horse, neptune, over to the center:

obviously, i took this opportunity to channel my inner Dior // Ralph Lauren // A.F. Vandervorst fall 2010 self.  my own interpretation of this English classic was executed by sticking to a few horse-riding inspired pieces at a time.  since the equestrian trend can quickly go halloween- costumey, I went with a sleek riding pant + a simple slouchy top + blazer for a chic spin.

would you rock the equestrian look or do you prefer to leave it on the runway?  

yours truly-
