Loving Life after 50

Poncho Villa or How I Wear My Poncho

I Love clothes, pretty much everyone knows that about me and I love wearing different clothes but sometimes you get stuck on a piece and really don’t mid wearing it over and over again. That is how I feel about my Poncho, a great versatile piece that I continue to think of new ways to style ( I am thinking Boyfriend jeans next. I started with grey velvet jeans ( and red hair), moved to burgundy leggings for a contrasting look and finally we hit today.

Poncho’s are funny, I mean seriously I loved them when I was 9 and now here I am 20 OK 42 years later and still fascinated.
( now forgive the really bad quality picture but in the 70’s we didn’t know it might be blurry until we sent it away for developing ( no instant gratification) Can’t you just picture the vibrant pink and brown… actually I think I am more partial to my sisters because it was white with green and yellow
 ( my fav colours) and lets not even talk about the lovely shag, thank god for blurry…..

So fast forward and here we go, Poncho time again and coincidentally its also How I wear my Poncho with Jill and Adrienne so make sure you hop over and see how all the other fabulous bloggers are styling their ponchos and wraps. I know I can’t wait to see all of them. For me I thought I would try it with a LBD this time.

I found the LBD option is a great one, add tights and boots and I have an outfit perfect for work and then if we decide to head out for drinks or dinner or a date… well LBD is perfect. The addition of a long necklace and a contrasting purse make for a standout outfit ( in my eyes)
