The Equestrian Fall

As we have discussed...fall is upon us, soon. A trend I mentioned last week that I am anxiously awaiting to sport: equestrian. I have a slight, renewed, obsession with horses so it is only fitting that I would love the style around the sport. Refinery 29 got it right by saying it is one of those trends that allows us to be something we are not, and in my case think about horses (crazy). Refinery 29 has a slideshow of 15 looks that embrace the trend without the doo-doo on the boots, much more chic. I love them all but the prices are a bit steep on a few... so I've found some alternatives and included the reasonable items!

The inspiration

Key pieces for the look:

Horseshoe necklace $31 via Etsy

Ruffle Chambray Top $54.95 via Gap
Steve Madden Rogerr Riding Boots $160 via Piperlime

Slip-lock waist belt $5.80 via Forever 21

I scored these at TJ Maxx for $100

Chunky cardigan $17.80 via Forever 21

Oh sweet no no, this style does not stop with clothing. Check out these housewares and gorgeous furniture also inspired by the trend.
