So many variables affect what I wear. I'm picky, I guess.
Since I'm now overweight and fear seeing myself in breeches, I wear jeans and half chaps, with paddocks. Not to mention I'm no longer having to just walk across campus to get to the barn. Since I have to drive an hour to my barn, then drive an hour back (with errands thrown in) having to change or endure breeches while in public is a definite turn off.
I actually do prefer wearing tall boots and breeches, because I like feeling the same in the practice ring as I do in the show ring. But since I'm in the process of losing weight, I don't want to buy any until it's closer to my first show.
