For many of us the best of both worlds includes great riding clothes and fashionable everyday wear. Our friend Amanda at Gee Gee Equine Equestrian Boutique offers the best of both worlds for the english rider. Located in sunny California Gee Gee Equine is currently online based with plans to open the doors to a first boutique store this summer. Currently Gee Gee Equine offers to travel to your barn or event so the shopping can come to you if you are local to the area.
Offering brands like Goode Rider, Spooks, Irideon, Lilo Collection and many more Gee Gee has you covered. All items above are available to purchase online right now and are some of my favorite pieces.
And of course for those of you who compete there are plenty of practical and still stylish options available.
It seems like it has been forever since I did a “snap shots” style post, so here it is! A few photos from my Instagram account lately. I cannot believe how fast this year is flying by and that summer is almost here.

A vintage carousel horse from my mom’s house. New earrings A bought me in Boston by SSD Jewelry : ) A girl can never have enough shoes and boots for spring, right?

A well made pair of brown boots can last forever in a woman’s closet. Trust me, cheap boots come and go but quality leather and craftsmanship sticks around. These versatile Rios of Mercedes Riding Boots are available from South Texas Tack.
A pair of basic brown boots can be worn in all seasons with the proper styling and one of the upcoming events that comes to mind is the Kentucky Derby. Skip the heels or wedges and pair these boots with a sun dress and your big hat!
A more reserved look with mismatched prints.
TGIF! Let’s relax and kick up our feet this weekend. You might have seen this photo on my Instagram feed last week and if not, that’s okay. I created these DIY studded flats for Best Friends For Frosting, they are the ultimate girly, girl site with tons of great food, entertaining and lifestyle ideas. You can read the full post and instructions for DIY on Best Friends For Frosting.
Here are the flats before the studs.
Definitely much better, I wore these stylish little flats out with a pair of breeches from Horze.

The weather is FINALLY getting warmer! It’s been a rough and cold winter and I am looking forward to many warm sunny days. I actually had a chance to wear a dress this weekend! I also realized how pale I am from winter… oh dear. Less than two months until the wedding and I really need to start working on my tan.
This strawberry maxi dress from Mundo Looks was the perfect dress for a windy day by the lake. It was comfortable and I love the dip hem on it. And now that I mention Mundo Looks, have you heard of them yet? The newly launched online store has a ton of cute dresses and tops for summer. I even have a promo code for you to use at checkout – horses100 gets you a generous 25% off your purchase!

Egg bakes are an easy breakfast and are also great for “cleaning out the fridge” – you know what I am talking about, add a little of this and a little of that. This egg bake has potatoes, cheese, sausage, scallions and eggs of course! I usually want a big breakfast in the morning especially since I stopped snacking at night, I wake up pretty hungry!
An easy egg bake with potatoes, sausage and cheddar cheese.
- Butter (for greasing the dish)
- 1 medium sized potato
- 3 sausage patties
- 3 eggs
- 1/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded or cubed
- 1 tablespoon Sriracha (can substitute hot sauce)
- 1 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- scallions, chopped for garnish
- Pre heat the oven to 300 degrees.
- Microwave the potato for about 5 minutes on the potato setting and grease your baking dish with butter on the bottom and sides.
- Also cook your sausage patties for about 5 minutes while the potato is in the microwave.
- Carefully slice the hot potato and mash it to the bottom of the dish.
- Remove sausage from the pan, blot off any grease and crumble into a large glass.
- Crack eggs and add to the glass.
- Stir in cheese, Sriracha, garlic salt, and pepper.
- Mix everything up with a fork and pour it into the baking dish.
