Outfit: Equestrian

This outfit only feels very vaguely equestrian, but since my wallet features a gold horse the title still seems appropriate. Also here's your British/American English lesson for the day: I would call this horse accessory a wallet (although here I'm using it like a clutch) but Thomas and most of his friends just call it a purse. Therefore a purse is a handbag to the Brits. So when I ask Thomas to hand me my purse because he's sitting closer to it, he rifles around inside my purse and hands me my wallet (when really what I wanted was my chapstick!). Just one of the subtle differences in our language that pops up every now and then. Whatever you call it, this new horse ~accessory~ is replacing a quite abused old wallet and makes me feel quite snazzy.
Also making me feel snazzy (despite my unsnazzy coughing and sniffling between pictures) is this gorgeous navy blazer from Joules. You'll be seeing a lot more of it because I'm completely in love with pretty much every detail of it; it fits like a gloves, features the sweetest mix of buttons, is deliciously cosy, and the faux fur collar is detachable. If you are similarly a fan of this jacket or other Joules pieces use code "CLOTHES20" to get 20% off full priced items from now until November 25th.

  1. funny thing! I'm not native English speaking (as you can see from my grammar, haha!), but I'm dating British boy. and I would say a wallet and he would say a purse. obviously, in England it's wallet for man and purse for woman!
    P.S.: I love your blog.

  2. Oh this sweater jacket combo are so darling and I think the title is very suitable ! Your outfits are always full of such lovely colors and are as always pleasing to the eye. xx Anna

  3. That's so confusing for me! lol. I'm American as well. Very cute jacket, I love how fitted it is.


  4. It's amazing how different words can have different meanings across the world. Even though Canada and The U.S are closer in proximity, we have adopted a lot of the British styles of speaking and spelling. That being said, I have relatives who live in England and they'll say words which have entirely different meanings than here. I always feel like they're giving me a double look wondering how silly I could be for pronouncing a word this way or that way.

    Language is beautiful!

    As for your outfit, such perfect hues for the setting of your photographs. Makes me feel like I'm dreaming... xo

  5. And my Jewish grandmother from Philadelphia calls a purse (handbag) a "pocketbook"! Coming from the West Coast of the U.S., I always thought that was so funny and confusing.
    Language is so much fun! And so is your outfit. Gorgeous!

  6. I looooooove the jacket and jeans combo! Such gorgeous colour combinations for fall, too :)

  7. Could you link to that fox sweater? I can't find it on the Joules site.

  8. @Marceline, I think it's sold out. I try to put all the links in a post when I can, so if there's ever a link missing it usually means I couldn't find the product either b/c it's old or sold-out. Sorry.

  9. Your outfit does have an equestrian vibe to it! I think it's the shoes and the blazer. I'm not very well-versed in horse things, but it's a very cute outfit! I love your casual outfits because they're so simple and they look so comfy!
