Poncho Weather

Okay, it really wasn’t poncho weather but I had on my teal flares and the poncho added to the 70s vibe so I went with it. I probably should have worn a coat.

I had a photographer (my husband) help me on this day, and I like that you can see him in the reflection in the window. The ladder is in the empty store behind me. It makes for quite a mashup!

I love flares and skinny jeans equally. They both give me a pep in my step, just in different ways. I’ll probably never narrow down “a look,” but boho rock n’ roll might come close. Others just call me quirky!

Red Skinnies and Leopard

I got daring recently and paired leopard print with red-hot skinny jeans. The shirt is loose so it balances out the painted-on fit of the pants.

Top: Old Navy
Pants: Red Light Vintage
Shoes: Old Navy
Cuff: Lauren Harkness

It’s hard to believe I got this top at Old Navy. It doesn’t seem like the type of thing they’d sell. Perhaps that’s why it was in the clearance section. It’s sheer too, and since women over 40 aren’t supposed to wear this sort of scandalous attire, well, I had to! (Of course I don’t buy into notions of what women should or shouldn’t wear but I read about that sort of thing recently and wrote about it).

I wore this awesome Perry Ellis poncho over the top because it’s too cold in Seattle for sheer tops–at least in February. I picked it up at a clothing exchange recently.
