Equestrian-Chic Times Two.

Hello once again. I am keeping that equestrian theme today and I am bringing you another simple, relaxed, jeans+jacket look. This time I tucked my skinny jeans into boots - a favorite look for me, for when I wear skinny pants in colder climate. Last Fall I added a lot of new jeans to my wardrobe. I actually purchased 5 pairs of jeans (all in different fits, styles and colors) from Aeropostale. I only had ever purchased a single pair of Aeropostale jeans back from 2003 or 2004. I must say last year they had a great selection of jeans for their Fall/Winter Collection. I am happy with all of my new(er) jeans.

Equestrian Layered Look.

Yesterday I was informing you girls how it was so hot, muggy and humid. Kind of gross if you ask me. Last night, around 3.00 AM it started raining and it stopped around 10.00 AM this morning, to start back around 1.30 PM. And what a rain it was! Yes some rain was needed to cool off this hot wave we had, but this was quite the rain. The good thing is that the temperatures dropped off from about 90 Fernhait Degrees to 76. The bad thing is that in some towns and cities it has rained soooo much that there have been black-outs, as well as some farmers have lost a lot of their produce and animals. It is sad... But we can never fight Mother Nature, unfortunately.

This is a layered look for when it was a Springy Rainy day (some days ago). I love this blazer and the equestrian feel it gives you. I also love how this cute scarf in a big, bold & unique-colored Leopard Print plays the role of a Cowl-neck little silk shell. I felt comfortable and European-chic in this outfit, for sure. And I went picture-crazy that day. I took close to 30 photos. I narrowed it down to these 18 shots. I know that's a lot for one outfit post but I like them. Ohh and one more thing, I straightened out my hair that day. It figures, almost any time I style my hair, it will rain. LOL
