Running errands on rainy days? I've never been so fashion forward! Running errands on rainy days? I've never been so fashion forward!

The rain has finally come to California.  It blasted us hard all day Saturday which meant for me, no riding and a chance to go do “regular people things”, like hit the grocery store.  Of course, these things can only be accomplished after a stop at the barn.   There’s nothing quite like tromping through the aisles with unidentified barn muck on your boots and pony snot all over your favorite barn jacket.  As I headed to the check out, I noticed that the last person in line was sporting black knee high boots, tan pants and tweed coat. As I drew closer I realized she was merely sporting the Equestrian Look and not One Of Us.  I stood in line behind her for a moment fiddling with my phone while she gave me a once over out of the corner of her eye.  I had to smirk when she sort of side stepped to put some distance between the two of us. I guess she didn’t realize that barn-funk is needed if you really want to complete the ensemble.
