Weekend Wear

Posted on: January 18, 2016

For the Winter Style Challenge for GYPO, 

one of the items on the list was a plaid shirt , 

which I opted out of getting as I am not much for button up shirts , 

and if I do wear them would prefer a gingham instead…..

As a Subsitution I bought this fun poncho from Jane.com

As I’ve mentioned before things only stay up for a short time before new items take their place. 

They did get a similar version back, but it only has five hours left and I am posting this in the morning. 

I did post the link on my Facebook page, so if you are not yet follwing that way perhaps now is the time!  

That’s the best way for me to post items that I find there as quickly as possible…

We had a warmer day, and this poncho thrown over a long sleeve tshirt was perfect!  

I am wearing my Diane Gilman Flared Jeans, bought for this season. 

Mine are no longer available, but she does have 6 other flared options, found HERE 

I like that I have navy boots (bought in Ireland) that help to extend my leg line,

a great trick for petite like myself.

I don’t think I could ever tire of wearing ponchos in any form….

I do like the addition of bootcuts and flares along with my skinnys. 

I mentioned yesterday that my Madi Claire bag was getting lots of use, lol!

Here’s my Game time oufit, which I am now in mourning as my team’s season is over.

which is how I actually watched the game, lol!  

Self Care

I think today’s self care had to be doing my weight training in the morning. 

I  made the colossal mistake of skipping it for a few days while I was doing lots of errands and 

spending quality time with my son before he headed back to college.  The reason I described it as colossal was it had reached that achy state , which kept me from falling asleep and being too tired to go grab Ibuprofen for relief , made for an uncomfortable night…. 

Gratitude

I am grateful the support of my son when my team lost, albeit throught texting… 

I am grateful for these close quality time moments with our youngest.  

I am grateful laughter and playfulmess we have as a family. 

I am grateful for the fun we had Saturday night making a fun dessert that some Asian customers served my husband this week…If anyone knows the legitimate name that would be helpful.  It is very simply, egg roll shell wrapped around 1/4 bannana and brown sugar.   They fried them, but luck me as I have my air fryer which worked perfectly!  They were yummy and brought the three of us together on our first night without my other son who had left that morning.

Your poncho is a great length for you! Is that what is called “Buffalo plaid”? It’s pretty. I could see it with black pants for a Valentine dinner!

Your game time sweater is very slimming. You look positively skinny in that game time pic where you’re standing!

Yes. You are correct, this print is indeed Buffalo Plaid! I could indeed do that for Valentine’s but I prefer to wear dresses as often as possible so think I will head in that direction. Of course our tradition involves getting take out and eating in back of the 15 passenger van with table set up (I hate long waits and busy restaurants, way to have time away when kids were younger). He does take me out again the next week so I can dress up, lol!

Love your gingham poncho, but not sorry about your team—-yeah Broncos!! jodie
