Spring Sportswear has Arrived!

While spring may not have sprung completely across the entire country, it certainly has awoken here in lovely Southern California. The flowers are blooming, the birds are singing and the long, warm sunny afternoons (thanks, Daylight Savings Time!) beckon me to toss my sweatshirt aside, open up the windows and even have lunch outside at a cafe. And typically this is also the same time of year that I eagerly open up my “t-shirt drawer” and realize that all my things that were so cute last year (or quite probably, the year before) are looking old and dingy. Not quite the image I was going for.  So what better way to celebrate the start of the season than to freshen up one’s wardrobe with some fantastic new spring fashion finds?marinelle polo, spring apparel

One shirt I’ve had my eye on since it arrived in our store is the Marinelle Polo from Joules. I just love the bright, playful colors, especially the thin chartreuse green stripes, just perfect in small doses. This classic polo shirt in traditional cotton stretch pique is so adorable paired up with any riding outfit or as casual wear with crisp white capri pants for a weekend get-together.

Another super cool top that caught my eye right away was the Romfh Sinead Polo.  Romfh is already well known for their use of super high tech fabrics that wick moisture, breathe and keep you cool and dry.  Add to that the fact that their garments are extremely flattering and have so many feminine touches and you’ve got a line that everyone will love!  The Sinead in particular drew me in because of its crisscross layered cap sleeves and the adorable ruching at the chest.

The Kerrits Ice Fil Top is actually made from a fabric that lowers skin temperature by 5 degrees.  As you ride, walk or run, the air moves through this amazing shirt and the fabric converts the sweat to a refrigerant! This will be the last summer I suffer in the baking sun on the verge of passing out. Not this year, my friends! It’s even available in a long sleeve version for those who want extra sun protection which, incidentally, is UPF 40.

This awesome top is designed for the show ring with a wrap style collar, but works equally as well as an everyday schooling top. The entire shirt is made from moisture wicking DriLex, just like the Sinead Polo mentioned above, but underneath the arms is an ultra fine mesh panel that allows for maximum air flow.

FITS Claire show shirtBefore I let you go, I have to mention just one other shirt. The button-down FITS Claire Show Shirt, designed for the show ring, is indescribably soft and stretchy and can easily do double duty as an everyday shirt.  Really, you have to feel it to understand…or just trust us and get it – you won’t be disappointed.  It’s incredibly lightweight, hardly wrinkles and well, it’s really fabulous all around!

From the innovative, to the stylish, to the fun… we have you covered when it comes to spring equestrienne sportswear. No need to settle for the old, the dingy or the worn out. Just come to Mary’s for some fun, springtime inspiration!

Happy Riding!

The Jeans Scene at Mary’s Tack and Feed

Mary’s Tack and Feed has been offering our customers quality jeans for years, and we’ve loved watching the selection transform from purely functional, to jeans that are comfortable and fashionable as well.  It’s great to know that riders can look good whether they’re in the saddle or out!

We’ve all noticed that different shoes fit differently depending upon the manufacturer, right?  Well the same principle can be applied jeans, which is why Mary’s is careful to carry a wide variety of manufacturers so that you can find jeans that fit just right.

From the perfect riding jean, like Wrangler’s Q baby or Cruel Girl’s Georgia, to the fashion-forward like Adiktd, Cowgirl Up, and the Lindsay from Cruel Girl, Mary’s Tack and Feed offers something for everyone.

jeans, pants, riding jeans, cute jeans, cowgirl jeansAnd if you’re tired of trying on a hundred pairs of jeans that seem cut for juniors but not for women, then give Cowgirl Tuff a try.  We know you’ll be hooked!

From the early traditional riding jeans made of heavy cotton for durability, which were so stiff it was sometimes a struggle to get them on and ended up feeling sticky and hot after hours working in warm weather, the amazing Vista jean from Cruel Girl was born.  Offering a light-weight cotton jean strengthened with just a smidge of polyester and lycra for stretch, the Vista was the #1 best selling jean at Mary’s Tack and Feed for years.  Since then, so many great manufacturers have created fabulous, comfortable, breathable and flattering jeans and Mary’s is proud to offer them to our customers!

Whether you’re in the saddle or out on the town, Mary’s Tack and Feed has jeans, from the affordable minimalist to the super embellished, that you will absolutely adore.
