Poncho Love..

Posted on: February 5, 2015

Today was bowling day, except not for me…

I went , but due to sciatica did not bowl,

so I decided I would take advantage of that 

and style a poncho…

Normally a poncho and bowling day wouldn’t go together..

I had just as much fun hanging out and chatting with the other parents..

We are all looking forward to Saturday when a few of us are attending a Wildlife Festival during the day, 

then the adults are hanging out  without the kids for the night….

I originally had a different scarf that had grey and teal in it, but saw this one on my way out the door,

and quickly tried it on and lived the more vibrant blues in this one…

I like wearing scarves or long necklaces with a poncho to break up the wide silhouette

and add in a vertical line…

Poncho’s really are a great background to showcase a scarf or necklace… 

Perhaps I’ll have to try the infinity scarf  and a necklace combo from yesterday with a poncho next…

Speaking of ponchos, they are going to be a big trend for Spring… 

I also have noticed that Feather Prints and Jewelry seem to be trending for the warm season…

Which is why I recently purchased my first item for Spring,  this bat-wing top from Ebay

It arrived and is very lightweight and perfect for wearing over a tank top for Summer

Gratitude

I am grateful for bowling days and the fun of connecting with other homeschooling families. 

I am grateful for the weekend plans and another chance for my son to hang out with his friends.

I am grateful that the heating pad helped my sciatica and gave me a few pain free hours today. 

I am grateful my daughter called to share with me that today’s walk to campus was much easier due to the plowed walkways…. after the night before where she was on the phone joking her way through the piles of snow and unpaved roads and sidewalks, rolling over snow drifts and even falling twice , this was a huge relief.

I love the my daughter is much like me and looks for the bright side of things, commenting today that her legs are feeling quite toned from all this walking in snow… 

 I am also grateful that she has no plans to stay north of home past grad school and likes our area where snowfall is a rare delight… she can always visit Boston since it’s her father’s home…

I am grateful that I have quite an assortment of flat boots for the season to accommodate this bout of sciatica

I am grateful that my home-schooler worked hard today finishing his Biology note taking, the more we do the less trouble he gives me in this… note taking for a kid who hates writing is torture, but he is seeing his own achievements , which was my goal before really pursuing the great adventure of creative writing…

Darling outfit….I so love you in that color!!!! Can’t wait to see that bat wing top–love it too! Jodie

Love the teal with the gray, Tracey! I’m going to copy that color combination. I have gray pants and a teal top which is more suited for spring, but it won’t be too long before I can wear that!

I also found gray boots that my picky feet can tolerate!! I bought them at an Amazon outlet where shoes are returned by customers. They have a showroom and all shoes are half the original price. These are expensive Eric Michael brand which I had never tried before, but the half-off made them affordable. My Birkenstock half-length inserts fit perfectly inside and work well with the boots. I’m so happy to finally have boots I can wear. 🙂

I am so happy for you to have found a pair of boots that work for you! Glad you found inspiration for a way to wear clothing you own…
