ON MY HIGH HORSE. Today's outfit (9/24) for a busy Saturday: finally getting all those blog sale photos taken, biochemistry studying, eating a delicious brownie sundae (I know, that's such hard work). Task: styling an outfit for a chilly day in the 60s. Problemo: finding it sunny and warm after leaving the house. I swear, St. Louis meteorologists have less future-seeing skills than amateur psychics. This equestrian ensemble was inspired by a photo I saw on H&M's website, so I recorded this BLAZER + TURTLENECK + SKINNY BELT OVER IT + PANTS + BOOTS combo down in my mind-wandering journal. This morning, standing rather unclothed in front of my closet, I flipped through the pages for inspiration and here we are.

Another one of my Labor Day sale exploits: these perfect boots that I nabbed for only $15. Previously, I was considering the H&M $70 ones, but luckily I stumbled upon this thrifty and sturdy pair. A little abrasive after walking around on cobblestone all day, but bearable. Cinching the boyfriend with a blazer gave it a more feminine silhouette in the back. The only thing missing is a riding cap, but I figured it would be an unsightly clash on my hat-unfriendly-shaped head. If only I were as beautiful and British as Vivian Winterbottom/Volkoff on Chuck (played by Lauren Cohan with gorgeous short hair) ... she looked so good riding horses.

Nordstrom opened at the St. Louis Galleria yesterday and it's so shiny and new! There are oodle-fuls of designer shoes, crazy studded Jeffrey Campbells (photos in tomorrow's post), loads of nice makeup. There was a Butter stand and they aren't kidding when they say it applies like butter. I am enamored beyond comprehension. But my wallet won't spare the $14 per bottle, so the sparkling dorothy red, smooth magenta, and hunter green testers had to do. The instrument with strings is my boyfriend's guzheng, a Chinese harp. Yeah, he thinks he's cooler than me.

You got such a good deal on those boots! I love this equestrian inspired outfit :D I've been on the hunt for a pair of riding boots for this fall - still no luck yet though. And that's awesome that your bf plays the guzheng. It's such an elegant instrument to play :)
