Everyone, meet my horse Joey ~ Joey, this is everyone! > U < I love that this outfit is easy and comfortable and I don’t have to worry about ruining it; hence the trip to the horse yards to un-rug the pony which turned into an outfit shoot. ; )
If you’ve ever been around horses, you will know that as soon as you step near one you become an instant magnet for horse hair, dirt, scurf ~ you name it, it gets on you. Still, what’s really great is that I got these jeans for free ~ so I don’t care what happens to them!
When I picked them up they were actually a pair of gansta style hip hop pants; you know the kind ~ baggy, loose and worn around the knees… Not my style, or my size for that matter, so I sewed them into a pair of high-waisted vintage styled pants by using the shape of my good old Freddie’s of Pinewood jeans as a guide. They turned out pretty well if I do say so myself!
I am also in love with my new-to-me gingham blouse; it’s so comfy and cute! I think that I definitely need more gingham in my wardrobe, the checks are so awesome. Joey wasn’t very impressed with it though ~ he doesn’t care unless there are carrots involved! He did, however, ham it up for the camera quite a bit. Don’t you think he makes a great model? Next time I have to remember to get a few shots with his legs in frame too! ; P
