How To A Wear A Plaid Poncho

It’s great to have friends from whom you can borrow! My friend Diane owns this wonderful shawl poncho and allowed me to be photographed in it while we were in  the mountains.

I love the rich colors and the fact that it is a blanket shawl so there is plenty of material for warmth and for ease of wear.  Flimsier shawls seem to want to fall off my shoulders.  This one came from   The Willow Tree Boutique.

Black long sleeve tee is Gap.

Jeans are Democracy (yep, styling them again because I’m wearing them again 🙂 )

Boots are Madden’s, but several years old. Similar below.

Trendy Stripes from The Pink Flamingo Boutique

Quickest sell ever! I walked into The Pink Flamingo, saw this trendy striped top, picked up a medium and walked to the payment counter. Didn’t even try it on.  I loved the stripes, colors and style.  When you know, you know!  I checked the price, of course, and was pleasantly surprised! $32!

The Pink Flamingo was one of several lovely boutiques we visited last Saturday during our Blue Ridge weekend getaway.

Vertical stripes are universally flattering and I love the fall colors.  The top is thin enough to wear now so I’m thinking it may be my top pick as my Thanksgiving outfit.

Temps at our cabin were hitting right at 50 degrees on Sunday when taking these pictures so my Gap jacket was the perfect topper.


My Diba True booties go so well with a casual outfit like this.  Coincidentally, they were bought on last years’ Christmas girls’ trip to Orange Beach, Alabama.  Three of the four of us bought the same shoe!!!

Shearling Drape Vest and Black T-Neck for a Chic Look


Drape vests can be a great topper to your holiday outfits.  Mine is faux shearling (90/10 poly/spandex) but is still very soft and has held up well. It’s several years old.

All below are incredible prices and most, if not all, will be on sale this Veterans’ Day weekend!

Styling simply today so short post.  Wearing my favorite Democracy jeans and a black turtleneck.  I am wearing Diba True booties in the dust/cognac color,  but I didn’t get a good shot of them. The DTs below are similar; same color but a little different style.  These are on Amazon in size 8 and  are half the price I paid for mine.
