A Horse Without A Bridle

My horse collection is coming along slowly but surely. Right now, it is limited to wardrobe items--no point in gathering figurines when your home changes so frequently, but I'm quite excited every time I see a horse print item in a store. This sweater isn't new, but it's definitely one of my favorites for fall. I'm quite fond of subtle, but pretty color combinations like this mustard yellow with the grey jeans and then a touch of red on my lips. I'm hunting for the perfect berry stain for autumn and winter, but until I find it I'll opt for my old reliable red by Clinque.

I don't know about the H&M in the US, but our H&M is packed with horse-inspired stuff!

oh honey <3 you don't wear much jeans, but when you do...:)
I love this look of yours - the horse print, the fab loafers, the skinny jeans... well, everything!

darcy said...

love the top and the shoes! i know your shirt has brown and black in it and so it would make it "okay" to have a black purse. but i personally think you can wear black and brown together all the time! what do you think?

Rebecca, The Clothes Horse said...

@darcy, yes, definitely. The top is yellow & black, so there's actually no brown there, but I think those rules about mixing brown and black are very silly. Wear what you want--fashion shouldn't have rules.

I love this!!!! It is different to see you in jeans. I know you wrote once you prefer skirts. I love the look though and it is sweet that you get things with horses in them.

I love how you're posting more outfits with pants. You pull them off so well, especially without looking boring or bland. Love that horse top!

Such a cute outfit...especially the heels! Taking your own pictures is a lot harder than I thought. Way to go for doing it so well!

Une parisienne... said...

I'm not a big fan of horses printed but the color is very nice and on you I found it beautiful, maybe I will change my mind... Moreover I love your shoes and your bag.

@Jean, is that rhetorical? as a print, in collectibles: yes. living & breathing, I don't really have any experience with.

Katie said...

I was really surprised to see you wearing jeans instead of dress, they look great on you! :D
