I live in the land of rainbows. I’m lucky in the fact that rarely a day goes by where I don’t see one. That being said, walking around in rainbow attire isn’t particularly a common occurrence for me. However, I do love pastels and as some of you now know horses. I’m also a fan of the Wildfox brand as of late. So when I saw this shirt online, it was love at first sight. I didn’t anticipate that getting it in my size would take a full two days. After a couple of OUT OF STOCK emails after my orders were placed, I had all but given up. But really…was I actually going to give up until I found it? Nope. My poor husband… I even had him searching–without asking him to do so, mind you. You have to know that I’m determined when a grown man with absolutely no interest in fashion shouts from the other room “I found the sweatshirt!” Let’s just say I’m a little intense when I’m in retail hunt mode and clearly he’ll do anything to spare himself. Rest assured, I broke it to him easy when I informed him that no, the sweatshirt wouldn’t work, I needed the jagged egde t-shirt.
I finally found it while online in the middle of the night and ordered it from a company that I had never heard of. Frankly, I never thought I’d have it in hand, but I was willing to take my chances. You can imagine my surprise when it showed up in the mail a few days later in all of its gorgeous rainbow horsey glory. Mission accomplished–yes! I did eventually get the sweatshirt too, but shhhh don’t tell…
I paired it with a BCBG power skirt in light aqua and accessorized with some Hermes rose gold jewelry and horse printed enamel bangles. The druzy angel wing earrings were a Christmas gift from my girlfriend Tracie who so thoughtfully worked with my favorite earring designer to come up with these. Sandra knew that white druzy angel wings were on my wish list so she had the perfect gift when Tracie contacted her. So incredibly sweet.
As I had a busy day, I hadn’t thought of doing a blog post in this ensemble. I was actually on my way to the post office to get a package in the mail for an ebay customer when I decided on the spur of the moment that this outfit was worth photographing. We had the camera in the car and halfway down our hill I said, pull over honey and start shooting. He was a bit perplexed as the last postal pickup was 20 minutes away with a five minute drive to go, but I figured we could get a few shots of the infamous rainbow horse tee. Well, we did get a few–140 in 10 minutes. Ask me how many were worth using. Yeah…not so many. Never a dull moment…and I of course made it to the post office with a minute or two to spare.
