Fior Da Liso: A Cowgirl's Closet Staple

Fior Da Liso: A Cowgirl Closet Staple

By | Miscellaneous, Western Lifestyle | No Comments

I’ve tried a LOT of equestrian clothing brands out there; I’m always looking for the best. That’s why I’m excited to share a little bit about my new favorite equestrian clothing brand (and offer you a discount code so you can try it for yourself!) I know for me, once I tried them, I was never going back.

They’re called Fior Da Liso, and I found the European-based brand on Exceptional Equestrian (a great source for premium riding gear for all my fellow riders!). The Fior Da Liso brand has the most beautiful riding shirts that were created and designed by women, for women. I can instantly tell a difference when I put on one of their shirts: it’s the perfect fitted look and I don’t have to worry about wrinkles, bunching, or tight sleeves. (Just picture the perfect blouse you’ve always been searching for: this is it.) I also love the playful detail in every design. The Fior Da Liso shirts feature a fun color or print underneath that shows through when you roll up your sleeves.

The best part is that these are super versatile investment pieces. I’ve worn my Fior Da Liso shirts tucked in with a pencil skirt, or untucked with jeans or shorts on the weekend. A great button-down is one of those closet necessities that every woman needs, and I love that these are perfect for any event I’m headed to.

During Catillac Rey’s winning run from the Breeder’s Invitational (view the video here), I wore the Fior Da Liso Eleonora 2019 Orange, along with my favorite riding jeans (which, by the way, are the Paige brand’s “Manahattan” cut. They’re the perfect long, slim-fitting boot-cut jeans that are comfortable in the saddle.)

So now that I’ve told you all the reasons why I love Fior Da Liso, here’s a great excuse to try them for yourself; Exceptional Equestrian offered me a discount code to share with friends! To get 5% off your purchase of these amazing shirts (and any other riding items off their site), just enter code “Elizabeth” at checkout.

Love,

How to Prevent Leather Furniture from Cracking or Fading

By | Leather | No Comments

Ahh . . . that smell of new leather. Stroll into our Aledo, Texas, home store and you’re likely to find it. Fine leather furniture, like the sofas and chairs from Brumbaugh’s Fine Home Furnishing, is a beautiful investment for your home or office. In addition to leather’s incomparable quality and comfort, the material’s rustic finish can lend a look of sophistication and masculinity to your space. And for those folks who like a clean home, you can’t go wrong with leather: it doesn’t trap the dust and allergens that normal fabrics do.

Maybe you’re one of those people who think leather furniture is too much work or the material is just too delicate for your home. Not true! We’re here to tell you that everyone can enjoy the beauty of leather. But, we won’t lie, leather can be susceptible to cracking and fading if not maintained properly. However, a few simple steps will keep your leather in tip-top shape and ensure its surface remains smooth and soft for years to come.

As my phone rang at 10:30 am and I saw that the name flashing on the phone was Dr. Lewis’, I took a deep breath and answered in fear.

“Elizabeth, you need to come look at your mare.” Having been on my way to Louisiana, I quickly found a way to reroute my path to Elgin, Texas.

This was a call I prayed I wouldn’t receive for quite some time. You see, this call was the end to my worldly love of a little horse named KD Shorty. Read More
