Black Petticoat Carolinas Equestrian

The Spring season with its unpredictable weather is just around the corner.  Having transitional pieces is a must, because the temperature can go from cool mornings to warm afternoons.  Let’s take a look at a few.

We are in love with Asmar.  These pieces are phenomenal for any season and any place, not just riding.  The Believe Sun Shirt is one of my favorites this year from Asmar - “Believe” is a great word to start your day!  Its technical fabric is wicking, and it has a UPF50.  This is a great example of a multipurpose, transitional season top.  With long sleeves and 3/4 zip neck, it is cool enough to be worn alone on a warmer afternoon, but it is also the perfect technical shirt for layering on cool mornings.

A super lightweight merino sweater is a must have for your closet.  The Adara V Neck Sweater by Asmar is stunningly beautiful and luxuriously soft.  The elbow patches add a sophistication that will not go unnoticed.  This piece is perfect for Spring, because just as the Believe top, it is able to stand alone if it’s warmer in the afternoon but provides a cozy and comfortable sweater if a little chilly.  Yes, Asmar has street clothes AND show clothes!  We carry them both!  This guy has already made its way into my closet!

Organic cotton.  It just sounds soft, right?!  Indigenous Designs, one of my other first loves, is only made with organic materials.  The Mesh Pullover is a super star with its open knit relaxed style.  A tiered hemline and 3/4 sleeves create a beautiful picture.  The Indigenous pieces are handmade by fair trade cooperatives as well.

Spring can be cool or warm.  Having pieces that you can peel out of and still have super chic pieces left is a must.  Check out the shop online or in person, we can dress you from street to show ring!
