Equestrian Chic

Like my new blog look? I designed it myself and would love to help you design a fun, new look for your blog too. Just shoot me an email for a quote/ideas- graphics@mostazaseed.com and check out my new graphic design shop Mostaza Seed Graphics.

So... here are the latest looks I love, inspired by the 1944 movie National Velvet, staring Mickey Rooney and Elizabeth Taylor. I love how the equestrian style can be both refined and rugged at the same time. The textures and rich colors make me happy:)  P.S. About a year ago I saw Mickey Rooney at the O'Hare airport. He was wearing the most wonderful brown plaid pants, red suspenders, and a dapper derby for a hat. What a classy guy!
