A Sense of Style
“I want all aspects in my
life to be fun,” Kate says.
“My grandmother always
told me as a kid that if it’s
not fun, don’t do it.”
Part of how Kate’s
through in her day-
to-day life is through her
unique fashion choices. If
you meet Kate out and about, you
never know if she’ll be wearing her
mom’s Louboutin high heels, her
cherished Kippy leather jacket,
or grubby barn-mucking clothes.
Her closet is a sight to behold,
with chandeliers, brightly painted
walls and an assortment of clothes,
accessories and shoes. She says
Carrie Bradshaw of Sex and the
City is her style icon.
Kate reveals she has everything
in her closet from show clothes and
her wedding dress to Bohemian
vests and leather jackets. “The
spectrum is wide because I don’t
really believe in trends,” she says.
She frequently shops vintage.
“If I find a vintage piece and it
looks great on me, and I can’t live
without it; I’ve got to buy it.”
Kate’s sense of style pervades
her home and barn. Known as “the
Barndominium,” the Evans’ house
is upstairs, above the Life in Stride
barn. The barn is just as colorful as
Kate’s closet—and that’s
just the way she likes it.
“I love hot pink and I
love turquoise, so for Life
in Stride, those colors
are everything that I’m
about,” Kate says. “Fun,
loud, girly, but at the
same time, sassy.”
With their lesson
complete, Kate’s students
return to the barn aisle to untack
their horses. They excitedly
chatter to one another and their
beloved Miss Kate as they care for
their mounts. It’s clear that these
girls have found a place where they
belong and feel accepted—one that
smells of horses and rings with
