"Holy sh*t," she wrote, along with a video of her skintight riding boots. "Horse people: the boots! I always thought breaking in boots meant the foot part but does it mean the calf part because I’m dying over here."

Chrissy wasn't the only member of the Teigen-Legend household (opens in new tab) who had clothing struggles this weekend though. On Sunday, she shared a picture of herself and her daughter Luna (opens in new tab), in which Luna is wearing her very first pair of jeans. Chrissy lovingly called Luna out on the drama of the milestone.

"First ride AND first jeans for Luna," she captioned the picture. "She had an epic jean meltdown, really beautiful acting 10/10."
