I’m wearing: White House Black Market Poncho (similar), Red Jean Leggings found at T.J. Maxx (similar), Cynthia Rawley Handbag found at T.J. Maxx #hugescore (similar), Kenneth Cole Lace-up Boots (similar), Leopard Print Scarf (similar).
So I have to laugh…the day I took these “self portraits” it was 70 degrees! Yes, 70 degrees in December in Chicago – bizarre! I was sweating – one, from being dressed in this poncho with a turtleneck underneath and two, because I take my pictures on a golf cart path and I was rushing to get them done before some unsuspecting Sunday golfers (that I most likely knew) came driving by. No such luck! Embarrassingly, I had to explain to two guys what I was doing in the middle of the cart path all dressed up with my camera and tripod taking weird pictures of myself. UUGGHH! Oh well! Who cares what they think, right? Ya, until the next time they run into my husband and tell him they saw me taking weird pictures of myself! Anyway, I digress…
I was thinking of playing it safe and wearing regular skinny jeans with this outfit, but I love mixing red with leopard print, so I went for it! I just love this poncho. I’ve had it for several years now, and I keep thinking it’ll go out of style, but it hasn’t – yippee! I picked up this scarf at a new store called “Q”. It’s similar to a Forever 21 or H&M. Nothing in the store if over $35. It was $6.99! You do have to be selective when you’re shopping there, but I found a few things that made it worth my while.
It’s December 13th. How are your holiday preparations shaping up? I’m a stressed mess as usual. You’ll be reading about it soon on the blog!
