Stripes and Boho Vibes.

What do you do when the snow starts melting but you still have a little cold lingering around? You wear one of your five poncho wraps instead of a coat and still layer by adding a very warm knitted wool scarf around your neck. And for this outfit I tried showing off some cute socks worn inside booties. I rolled up my skinny jeans and voila - pretty rainbow stripes. Matching the stripes of the socks to the stripes of my poncho wasn't done on purpose. However, matching the stripes of the poncho to all the other colors of the outfit was done on purpose. Overall, this has a Bohemian, Winter Festival, 70s vibe to it and I think I will try pretty socks again, peeking through from the top of my boots. What do you think? Have you ever shown your socks on purpose, while wearing a casual outfit?

I took a couple of pictures without all the heavy layers to show you my purple buffalo plaid tunic. Plus I was wearing some pretty earrings.

  13. That poncho is just perfect. We have had some cooler morning, but it gets warm during the day and I've been wearing my military jacket, wraps, etc.!! Those striped socks are TOO cute with this outfit, too! I couldn't help but notice them. Happy International Womens Day to you, too!

  16. You have such pizzazz. Love your feisty, fun spirit. You could make a potato sack look stylish. This has been the craziest spring! We would normally be in the upper 80s by now but it is windy and not terribly warm. Glad you are able to move into a poncho and out of a coat, hope you are soon in short sleeves.
