When the weather starts to warm up during springtime, I get all outdoorsy and love going to country shows, watching polo and going to ladies day at the horse racing. I love the equestrian style and whilst I haven't been horse riding since my private lessons as a child, I find that the style can be easily recreated without having to step up into a saddle.
I thought it would be fun to have a look online and piece together an equestrian style outfit to give those looking to recreate this outdoors look some outfit inspiration.

I first found this gorgeous Southwold Wool Hacking Jacket in a brown/green tweed by Caldene via Equestrian Clearance. Tweed epitomises horse and country style for me and this jacket is gorgeous. Tailored and made of pure wool, this classic jacket became the foundation of my search for the perfect equestrian style outfit. Aside from tweed, a crisp white shirt is an absolute staple in any riders wardrobe. Taking this as some style inspiration, I would definitely opt for the gorgeous AnnMarie Stud Collar Blouse in white from Missguided tucked into these gorgeous Lauren by Ralph Lauren trousers from House of Fraser. They're the Edith Skinny Jodhpur Trousers and I absolutely love the shade of tan that they are in with the dark brown patches on the inside leg. I'd wear these with the Tarquin Knee Riding Boots from Bertie via ASOS as the tan distressed leather would look awesome with them. To carry all of my essentials, I would definitely opt for the Marcie small saddle bag by Chloe from Selfridges in the colour nut. These type of bags are so deceiving as they fit loads more inside than one would first think, plus it comes in the most gorgeous pebbled leather, it is absolutely to die for! I'd keep accessories to a minimum with this outfit and just stick with my usual watch and rings. I think this would make them most gorgeous outfit for a day at the polo, race meeting or for a walk around a countryside village.
So that's me all inspired out for one day!
