Guest Groups: Equestrian Chic

When the leaves start to turn in the fall, I anxiously wait the days when I could throw on my riding boots and herringbone blazer. My wardrobe has an abysmal chic makeover, and shouldn’t insides get one also? Equestrian style is synonymous with the beauty of horses, the tradition of hunting and the triumph of winning races. You can achieve the timeless look by choosing the right details in everything out of your light to the beverage stirrers on your bar. — Shannon from I Love Your Own Crazy and Poplin & Queen
