In the Halloween spirit, the Fab 40’s decided to go for goth inspired looks this month. Oh okay, “we” didn’t decide … it was my turn to pick and thrust this odd challenge upon us. I’m a HUGE Halloween fan and a frustrated goth at heart (they kicked me out of the club back in the day for being far too cheerful and friendly!)
Sometimes I get so excited about the latest trend that I forget how important modern classic basics can be for building a wardrobe.
My fellow teacher and bestie Lynn and I take daily photos every morning before school to share our outfits on Instagram. (Follow us: @fashionshouldbefun & @lynnnie34!) I was scrolling through our pics one day and noticed how often we both wear a denim jacket.
Here’s a few outfit pics …
Lynn and I both love a denim jacket as a chic topper to white jeans.
I’m a sucker for ponchos. If I had more time this week, I’d dig out a pic of me as a kid in my crochet poncho look, circa 1975. You’ll just have to use your imagination. And don’t forget to make it a 70s-rific brown, rust, and mustard!
