I Am A Breeches Goldilocks

I love a good pair of breeches; my bank account and body structure, however, do not.

My favorite pair pre-vet school were the SmartPak Bradley breeches. While a disaster for many, they fit me perfectly.

Cue 3 years into vet school, and 10-15 pounds later, I enjoy the SmartPak Pipers, but they just don't fit right. I've always been a 26 in the Pipers; pre-vet school, they were too big; in vet school, they're a lil snug.

These seem to be a staple for a lot of people, and my merlot pair are just the perfect color.
I've been slowly transitioning into TS Trophy Hunters, but they're just not quite right either. A little too baggy in the knees and thighs; a little too short, even in the longs. Despite being not quite right (NQR to you vet folks), I've somehow acquired 3 pairs with 1 more on the way....

I'm a follower when it comes to equestrian fashion, what can I say?
Other breeches on my "I want to try" wishlist":

Houndstooth Luxe Breeches
Aztec Diamond Houndstooth Breeches
I've wanted these for a year now thanks to The $900 Facebook Pony posting them. If they're still in stock next week, well, Happy birthday to me.

Their new burgundy breech is too die for but not available yet. I just can't decide if I'm just too ammy to wear this. They might be a bit too edgy for my classic taste (hilarious because in normal clothes, I love edgy details).
All I want is a size 27, long, nice pair of breeches less than $200/pair (or you know, under $100, but a girl can dream) that are made for the slightly fluffy, leggy Hunter-Jumper princess, because those would be just right.

-K & C


  1. The TS trophy hunter have been my go to. My 26 are getting a little snug with a few extra pounds I have put on though. I really like the ovation slim secret. I never anticipated I would - they are a little too thick during the summer though.

    1. Oooh- I may look into those for a winter/spring/fall breech.
