Wearing Dappled Grey

Wearing Dappled Grey   scarf2

Long time DG fans will remember this fabulous chair that reader Kristen McDonald created using her custom-designed dappled grey textile. Well, she’s back, this time with handmade crepe de chine silk infinity scarves sold under her new Nice Filly label.

Style it down with a beachy tee (above) or dress it up for urban equestrian chic – these scarves would make a smashing holiday gift for any equestrian on your list.

Available backed in either seafoam green or blushing pink.

Barn-Ready Style by Blundstone

Barn Ready Style by Blundstone   Blundstone Brogue Saddle Front

There’s nothing like Fall and a new crop of boots to bring an equestrian style blogger out of hibernation!

When family-owned (since 1870!) Australian boot maker Blundstone reached out to me with their new styles, I knew I had to share them with Dappled Grey’s readers.

I’ve long appreciated Blundstone boots for their comfort and versatility. My black chisel-toe Blundstones have seen literally hundreds of miles of grooming, handwalking, riding, and everything else in between.

On top of being a great all around boot, Blundstones are a favorite because they always manage to look cool too – even better perhaps after acquiring the patina of daily wear. Which is why it’s so exciting that they’ve released some very stylish variations on their iconic elastic-sided chelsea boot.

Because I’m a fan of the chisel toe style, the Rustic Brown Brogue boot (above) is my personal favorite among the new styles, but only by a slim margin because Blundstone also answered my longstanding wish for a taller work boot with the Rancher style (also in Rustic Brown). The olive green and orange elastic styles put a new spin on the classic Stout Brown Blundstone and for fans of alt-equestrian style there is now a Grey and Steel Grey option too.
