Saddle Up

 Top: Equipment {also here} | Jeans: MOTHER | Shoes: Manolo Blahnik {super similar for less than $100 here} | Bag: Chloè {similar} | Bracelet: Julie Vos | Necklace: Gorjana | Sunglasses: Cèline {super similar} | Lips: MAC Liner in 'Soar' + Lipstick in 'Fast Play' + Lipgloss in 'Supervixen'

I fell in love with this top the moment I laid my eyes on it.  I've always had a thing for horses and think they are one of the most magical, beautiful creatures in the world.  My husband actually grew up in NC and his family had a lot of land and a barn with horses, so he was always around them.  I, on the other hand, grew up in a neighborhood with the house beside me being about 10 yards away.  So, all that to say, I've always admired how much J knows about horses and that's one (of the many) things I love about him.  Since being married and decorating our home together, we have horses throughout our home in different ways and I loooove them.  One is a white horse head that I picked up on my very first trip to Nashville a couple of years ago and I wouldn't take anything in the world for it.  (His name is Nash, obviously.)  As John and I are (re)decorating our home together, we're finding that memories and sentimental pieces are what fill a home with love and laughter!  

Anyways, none of this little blurb has been about fashion and I got majorly sidetracked, but I love this top!  I love the Equipment brand in general.  It's one of those brands that is definitely pricey, but totally worth it because the quality is everything.  Also, I love these jeans for Fall!  I wanted a slim-fit pair of flares and these are actually the first pair of MOTHER denim I own, and I absolutely love them.  They're so comfortable and the fit is great.  I actually had these altered, but once I saw these photos, it looks like I need another inch or two taken off!  Anyway, throw in a few cognac accessories and you have the perfect, cool weather/Fall look!

P.S. - One thing that EVERYONE loved last year for Fall is the J.Crew Puffer Vest in black + white herringbone pattern, so I thought I would let you guys know that they're back in stock and currently 40% off!!

Thanks so much for stopping by, xx.
