Equestrian by Melissa

Wednesday, October 05, 2011
Sunday mornings I always ask my husband, “Does this look okay?”  I don’t know why I ask because he will usually say anything to get me out of the house on time. But, when I walked in wearing this he said, “You look very equestrian.” What is that suppose to mean?


I didn’t want to look anymore equestrian than I already was so I paired the skirt and tops with my leopard print shoes instead of my knee-high boots result = Safari! Better? I’m not sure…


Please disregard my horrible posture I still really loved the orange and green together even if the mixing styles is still questionable.

 Skirt: Victoria Secret. Green Shirt: Anthro. Orange Shirt: J crew. Belt: A&E. Shoes: Aldo.

Introducing my one brown purse. It's the only one I own. It was purchased at a Coach Outlet as a “Congrats to me for graduating college." That was three years ago and it's still here. Timeless.

  1. Every time I ask my husband what he thinks of my outfit he ALWAYS say it looks fine just so we can head out and leave. I shouldn't ever bother asking :) Love this look!

  9. I know exactly what you mean about your husband's answer... I have taken to asking my husband, "How do I look?" followed quickly by, "Are you saying beautiful because it's faster to keep this outfit on than change?" and then, "Seriously?" :o) Gotta love our men, but maybe it'd be better to ask a girl friend or someone else that doesn't care if we're late! ;o)
