Good morning! Grace, Kate and I had a fantastic time at Brimfield and we wanted to break down the trends that we came away with – things that we gravitated toward. Confession: I was one of those girls with an extreme horse obsession brought on by my favorite camp horse, Velvet, and a full run of Black Stallion books (20 books in the series, and I had every one). So it’s no wonder that with all the leather at Brimfield, I was drawn to the equestrian gear. There’s really nothing like the patina in old leather riding boots or saddles. And while decorating my Brooklyn apartment with saddles is probably a little over the top, even for me, I love the idea of using riding boots with decorative riding-boot forms in the corner of the bedroom. We also saw an abundance of horses’ heads, but I stuck to snapping photos of the leather side of things. — Amy A.
