Take Life by the Reins

Something about Free Rein’s breeches make it so easy to wear outside of the barn. I think it is the ankle closure that mimics a clean hem of a pair of trousers or leggings versus a pair of breeches that have a Velcro closure or elastic. This tan color is also perfect because it is neutral without looking so nude (you know I’m talking about- the girl wearing tan leggings and it looks like she isn’t wearing any bottoms?!) Lastly the patches are just stunning. I love this pop of rich golden tan. 

Free Rein makes it so easy to wear these breeches out and about- I had to give it a go myself! I all in love with combining tan with black and white, so this off the shoulder striped top was a no-brainer. It or one of those tops I try to match everything with… and I think these breeches were no exception! 

I thought a subtle skinny black belt would balance the top and breeches nicely. For an added texture element, I decided to go with a jean jacket. This definitely made the ensemble more casual, but I could have easily added a statement necklace and black sweater to dress it up. 

I finished my casual look with a pair of preppy wedges that conveniently had tan and black in them. I would wear this outfit out to lunch, shopping with a friend or to a equestrian-type event! So I dare you to take life by the reins and wear your (Free Rein) breeches (see what I did there?!) out and about!  Want more tips on branching out with wearing your breeches with your everyday attire?
