State Love

I’ve been a little misty about my home state of Minnesota lately.  I feel like Minnesotans have more pride for their state than most. Probably because you have to have a team spirit to get through the winter. There are no 6 degrees of separation in Minnesota, it’s  like 1 or 2. The most common question you’ll get when meeting new people is “Where did you go to High School?” Everyone from Minnesota can be connected through their high school. I was missing my friends, lilac bushes, and Chipotle this weekend and started looking for Minnesota art on Etsy to add to our home and found a plethora(I heart that word) of state related art. The besties:

Equestrian Style

I have loved all things Equestrian since my first lesson in Kindergarten. If you don’t have access to horses or they scare the beejeezus out of you, bringing equestrian elements into your home or fashion is a great way to incorporate the style. I get so annoyed when I see it featured as a “new trend”. Umm..not really since classical horseback riding has been around since the Renaissance.

This book is a great overview of the lifestyle.

 

I love jewelry that features bridles or bits. This bracelet comes in a few different colors, but as we all know I’m a sucker for white.

 

These necklaces are from Etsy seller, Natasha Grasso. So beautiful and reasonably priced.

I’m so glad the brand Sporto has had a relaunch. They were so big in the early 90’s and then they just kind of disappeared. A couple winters ago I bought these in the short version with orange rubber and they were a hit in the frozen tundra!

Rebecca Cray features almost solely Equestrian design. Her website is treasure trove. Here a few of my favorites

This Barbour Paddock jacket is darling.Would look great on seriously any body type.

Pair it with these Etienne Aigner boots and some jeans for a well put together look while running around town doing errands.

No Equestrian post would be complete without a little Ralph. This tray is part of his home collection.

I’m not sure about these bookends though.. A little to literal maybe?

Who has fun plans for the weekend? It’s Spring Release weekend in our little wine country, so I’ll be at my husband’s winery manning the gate! I’m so happy it’s May, Spring is FINALLY here:)
