Not Your G-Ma’s Wardrobe
Welcome to Not Your G-Ma’s Wardrobe!
The weekly post where I show you how I try to dress in a way that doesn’t
scream ”Grandma” even though I am one..
Because I think young is more a state of the heart and mind then a number:)
First up, another of my Kohls purchase’s from my buying frenzy a couple of weeks ago.
They are so smart to send me a 30% off anything coupon.. it is just enough savings that,
when combined with a sale, I find irresistible! I got this Sage green poncho with my coupon.
It was somewhere between $15 and $19 in price.. I guess the frenzy made me lose track…
I was basically just throwing money in the air yelling “I’ll take it!”..
I love this color, and I am so glad to see the Poncho making an appearance on the fashion scene again.
Because what do we G-M’as love?
Covering up the muffin-top of course!!
I will admit I also wanted to cover it up as a mere Mom.
And a wife, and a young adult, and a teenager..
Ok – the only time time a muffin top is appealing is when it is spilling
out over a pair of Pampers… not the adult size..
I pulled out my good ole pair o jeans on this day too – the ones that never die..
Best $24 I ever spent at TJMaxx..
I also threw on a raincoat that I got there about 3 years ago – I believe it was around $15.
On clearance of course..
No, those are not the same jeans. Well, they are the same jeans, but not the same pair..
I love them so much I bought a couple.. In fact, I just ordered a 3rd pair online yesterday..
I neeeeeeeed them!! And I have a deep fear that they will stop making them..and I will
be doomed to Mom jeans for the rest of my life.. up to my armpits jeans… with pleats..
I could never leave my house again..
I know you understand.
That little jacket I am wearing is a $4 thrift store purchase.
I am not sure about it yet.. it is somewhat Rocker – esque..
It is a little shiny..I don’t even know what you call that material..
is it pleather? Somehow that always sounds like the name of one of those girls
one would ask for when calling an escort service..
No offense to anyone out there named Pleather..
Like the curly scarf I am rocking with my Pleather jacket. I wish I could remember where I got it.
I may not dress like a grandma but I certainly have the memory of one..
It was online somewhere – I do know that Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy makes some like it.
I heart them:)
I thought it would be fun this week if I picked an outfit I like from Pinterest -
You know Pinterest right? The biggest time absorber since You-Tube?
I just love this look!
I like how it takes classic, everyday pieces, and fills in with the trends.
Shoes, purse and jewelry.
I might just try to put a look like this together for next weeks post.
Thanks so much for coming by – hope you have yourself a fun wardrobe week!
Some of you have asked in the comments what brand of jeans I am wearing -
They are called ZCO, and here is a link to where I order them online -
