Top: Conversation Pieces | Pants and Boots: Old Navy | Necklace: Gift from Friend | Earrings: INPink | Bracelet: Isshou No Yakusoku | Clutch: Rouge + Whimsy

One color that has really been lacking in my wardrobe is light blue and I don’t really know why.  It’s the perfect color to wear for Winter going into Spring.  These pictures were taken a couple weeks ago as right now all you would see outside is snow, up to the height of my boots!

For this look, I was going for a modern equestrian.  Pants inside riding boots, buttons on the top, and then fancied up with some fabulous jewelry and a fun clutch.  I’ll have you know that I used to take horseback riding lessons back in the day, as well as ballet, figure skating, tennis, Chinese dance, tap dance, flute, and piano lessons too.  Of which I don’t know how to do a single thing anymore, sorry Mom!  But I’d like to think it’s helped me build character, or something.

    I LOVE this look: the blouse, the boots, the clutch, everything’s perfect! And you’ve made me realize that I have nothing in light blue in my closet! Unbelievable, when it’s such a beautiful and feminine shade! I need to remedy that asap :) I blame you for my next shopping spree :)

    I played softball for a few summers back in junior high. I liked it but I was always SO scared of sliding. I always worried my legs would get cut up.

    And I took horseback riding lessons for awhile but was so shy that I hated going. How lame is that?
