Poncho Style

Posted on: December 30, 2014

Today I went to the mall with my son, to use gift cards 

to complete a few more clothing items to his evolving style.

With it being a colder rainy day, I opted for my new red Poncho, a Christmas present.

I love this deep red color, a color I use to think didn’t work well for me…

I like the addition of the print top underneath, although a plain black top would look great too..
I really like adding either a scarf or long necklace with ponchos to create a vertical line, a trick for us petites…

I had to stand by my favorite tree without touching it due to the wet days we’ve been having..

I would normally have thought of my petite height and

  opted for a pair of heeled black booties , rather than riding boots..

I, however, knew with the body aches

I’d been experiencing.  that I wanted flats today..

I am also wearing my new Cloche Hat, found at Amazon Here..

My favorite stylist extraordinaire, Angie from You Look Fab, 

recently recommended I add a cloche style hat to my style..

Dear Readers, I had a fun day with my son… anytime I get with just one child individually is special. When my son saw me in my new hat, he called me Mary Poppins.. I had to laugh when seeing the photos with the addition of the umbrella..

My body aches came back late in the day,

but not nearly as bad as they’ve been,

so guess I need to just take it easy…

Dear Readers, Have any of you had the bad luck of catching the virus or full on flu going on now? 

Did you get any great fashion items for Christmas?  

Would love to hear from you , please leave a comment…

Gratitude

I am grateful that my son and I had a great day together and that he found 3 great new pieces to add to his style.

I am grateful that my body aches are getting better and are definitely not flu related…

I am grateful that my oldest is definitely feeling much better and is on the upswing from his bout with the flu. 

I am grateful for phone call from my sister in law today, love her so much..

I am grateful that everyone pitched in and helped clean up my kitchen today.

Very chic outfit, I love the color of the poncho!

Thank you, yes the color is what sold me…

What a happy outfit! So cute!! I loved ponchos in the 60/70s. They say if you wore a style in years past not to try again, but I’m tempted to! What do uou think, Tracey? Is 62 too old for that style?

That old saying works when talking about mini skirts, not so much for something like ponchos… I think you should absolutely try it… The stores are full of choices right now. Let me know how it turns out!
