I saw Angie's post this morning and caught the equestrian bug. I have been struggling to style this hacking jacket, although I love it as a piece on it's own. Today I have a business formal event in the evening. I will swap the boots for tortoise shell print pumps in the evening. The faux leather hem on the dress does add an extra horizontal line but I'm hoping it is just flattering enough. The vent popping bugs me a little but I have lost about 8 pounds and am continuing on a good pace, so hope it won't pop in a couple months

I guess I'll see whether this is appropriate or not tonight. I'm just not into suits these days. I feel so much more fab in something on trend, serious but feminine and fun.

Feedback positive and negative is appreciated!

Added pics with the jacket unbuttoned.
