This week marks the first time when Texas will be hitting the triple digits this year. Couple that heat with the coastal humidity and you have a perfect formula for dehydration and eu de sweat. As wonderful as my Pikeur Ciaras are, they are not built for profuse bum sweat. Hence, my closet has a need for something I've long hated: riding tights.

Did I make the score of the century? After totaling the math, I realize I may have, even when it was a bit of an impulse buy!

Last month, I was scrolling on Poshmark one night. I stumbled upon a pair of Pikeur Ciara breeches. To me, Pikeur wasn't on my radar during my h/j time. However, Pikeur is king in the dressage world, so I quickly regarded it as brand whose quality matched its high price tag. Normally, they retail at $300 USD new in the US. In Europe, where Pikeur is based, they are priced around the equivalent of $200 USD.

Have you ever consistently ogled the same thing, not realizing at first that you've seen and loved it before? The Mountain Horse Sovereign boots are that thing for me. I'm not the first to fall for them, especially the two-toned brown boots. The construction is lovely....
