What TO wear?
What do you wear when you ride? Particularly western riders? I'm just into pleasure/trail for now with a far-fetched fantasy of someday learning to compete in western pleasure and maybe even reining.
Typically I've been wearing bermuda-length denim shorts, my Justin Gypsy boots (which are short) and tank tops or casual t-shirts. I would wear jeans but it's 110+ here some days and I just can't stand to be too hot.
Most (all?) of the skinny girls seem to wear tight western jeans with lots of bold stitching and bling on the back pockets. Even if those were to come in my size they'd probably be uncomfortable. I'm really hard to fit since my gut is two sizes larger than my butt and legs.
I've been considering hot-fixing some crystals and doing some heavy-threaded decorative stitching on my Just My Size and Faded Glory brand shorts...not sure if it's worth the effort though. LOL But yeah, I typically buy cheap clothes because I'm on a looooong journey to get in shape and lose weight, so I don't necessarily want to buy a $75 pair of jeans that will fit for all of a month.
But I feel soooooo frumpy sometimes!
