An Equestrian Mudroom

I have shared some pictures of my equestrian-themed mudroom on Instagram, but I don’t believe I’ve ever blogged about it. I recently gave it a tremendous cleaning (lots of muddy paw prints abounded!), and restyled my shelf. I love how it came out! I guess I shouldn’t say it’s “equestrian-themed” as the room just became[…]

History of the Hunt Coat

*This article originally appeared in Horse & Style Magazine’s March/April issue. I wrote it for their “History of Equestrian Style” series! While the origin of the very first riding jacket is unknown, we do know that jackets currently worn by English-disciplined equestrians evolved from the coats initially worn by foxhunters. It is widely thought that[…]

As you’ve probably learned from the posts about my yard sale adventures, I love repurposing the old and blending it in with the new. I like looking at[…]

Hampton Ivy

As my readers know from this blog, I love all things equestrian, nautical, and preppy. It’s not surprising, therefore, that Hampton Ivy fits me like a glove. I found them last year on, where else, but Instagram (@HamptonIvy), and I’ve been hooked ever since! “Hampton Ivy is a classic and preppy fashion accessory company centered[…]

My $7 Yard Sale Haul

I celebrated Kentucky Derby Day morning by participating in a local community yard sale. I set up a table with my mom, sister, and BFF, Mary, and I made about $40 for the day. Not too shabby. I think my sister was the big winner with around $80! After the mad rush first thing in[…]
