Bone Is The New Black

Spring is knocking on the door but the cold Winter temps are still here. I love the faux fur trend that's been going on this season, and Forever 21 has a ton of affordable jackets in great, fun colors! I like pairing this rust jacket with shades of bone and cream, as it lends itself towards Spring trends. I'm gonna say it now and i'll probably say it again - bone is the new black! You'll be seeing a lot of this year and accessories are an easy way to wear the trend. This faux leather backpack is under $90 and even has a snake embossed panel and looks so good with the gold hardware - especially with this color of this jacket. Shop the look below! xx

Black+White Chevron

    I'm SO pumped about one of my newest designs for Valley City, the 'Chevy Bae' coordinate! We sell the top and pants separately, because they look great together or paired with other pieces. I kept this look monochromatic, and even went a little match-y with my chevron hat. How cute are these platforms?! They were the perfect shoe for this look! Shop the "Chevy Bae' and the rest of my collection for Valley City HERE! xx

Denim Jacket

Denim is already proving itself to be a big trend this year, and the easiest way to rock it is with a jean  jacket! Perfect for layering in the Spring, or on it's own in the Summer. Underneath i'm wearing one of my designs for Valley City -- the 'Winter Classic' turtleneck dress! I loove turtlenecks, and I love a baggy dress, so I decided to combine the two! It's available HERE. To add another element of texture, I have my new Gelareh Mizrahi python backpack! It is to DIE FOR! Her entire collection is amazing, and python is another HUGE trend for this season. I added the pom pom key chain because even though the 70's are in style, i'll always be a 90's girl at heart. Shop the look below! xx

Equestrian Style

YAY for another fun Equestrian style post! I love this look because i'm wearing one of my Skull Cashmere sweaters. Cashmere is pretty common is riding attire for schooling, and I love mixing my street wear stuff with riding clothes for an edgier look that fits my personality. I always get so many compliments on the skull sweaters! Underneath i'm wearing a great schooling shirt from Equine Couture. It's got a high neck but not a collar so it's comfortable and warm. I love this black, white, and military green color palette. The Tailored Sportsman breeches are one of my favorites, especially because they come in SO many good colors. These Roeckl gloves are really popular for showing because they look nice, but I have a pair for schooling too because they're the thinnest, most comfortable glove i've tried on -- and you get the grip you need without the bulk. Isn't Ever such a great horse model? She really likes it, too! :) Shopping links are below! xx

Python Print

I'm seeing python trends all over the place this season! I for one couldn't be happier - it's one of my favorites. I'm really loving it in this white, black + grey palette that i'm seeing a lot of. This blazer is extremely thin and lightweight so it's perfect for Spring, and it fits like a glove with just the right amount of shoulder pads. For texture I added a lace button down shirt underneath and dark skinny jeans with boots to dress it down a bit. These Senso boots have REALLY been worth their purchase! I've worn them just about every day all Winter long, and i'll be able to keep wearing them all year! They have a very subtle embossed texture to them, instead of just being a typical black chelsea boot. Shop the look below! xx

Leather Biker Jacket

So i've established already how much I love this 'Ride Or Die' leather jacket with the black and white floral print lining, so I won't go on too much about it again - but this cashmere zip up sweater underneath is a $300 shirt on sale for $32 (here) right now! I've got my frayed ankle skinnys on again but with these ADORABLE metallic clogs that are perfect for Spring! It's a perfect modern update to a cool 70's style shoe. Shop the look below! xx

Equine Couture

I'm so excited to post the very first equestrian style blog for Style Native! I hope to incorporate both equestrian brands you already know and love, as well as street wear brands and designers that you may not think to wear riding but work well for equestrian wear. Since it's off season and i'm not lucky enough to be at WEF, i'll be starting with mostly schooling attire. 

This first outfit is perfect for a cool and sunny day. I don't like to necessarily wear a collared shirt everyday, but I do like having on a mock neck or turtleneck that both looks nice and keeps me warm. These breeches by Equine Couture are affordable and comfortable for everyday riding and the dark navy color are slimming, which is always a plus in these skin tight pants. As you can see, i've about worn holes in my boots because I wear them daily, but these are custom by Eiki and they've been comfortable from day one! They're also a very affordable price point for custom boots, which is nice because I need new ones every couple of years from the effects of everyday wear. Shopping links for everything are below! xx
