Poncho & Midi – NYFW Inspo

February 18, 2020

I get all kinds of inspiration from fashion week. Sometimes, it’s just the feelings of excitement from designers showing their new collections and the emotional buzz of being with a bunch of people who love fashion as much as you do.  Of course, this year I did experience it all from home, but I still felt inspired by many things. This outfit of the day is inspired by a runway look.  Wanna guess which one?

poncho and midi skirt and knee high boots



It was Gabriela Hearst’s ponchos, midi skirts, and knee high boots that made me swoon!  I’d love to have the looks right off the runway, but since my budget won’t allow that right now, I put together an outfit from what I had in my closet already. And I really liked it!

Gabriela Hearst’s runway looks:

Gabriela Hearst FW 2020 2021




My humble interpretation:

poncho, midi skirt, suede boots

boho over 50


You might remember this tie-dye midi skirtfrom this post.  I’ve had this poncho for AGES.  Think I’m exaggerating?  Here’s a post from SIX years ago with me wearing it!! You’ve seen the boots in many outfit including this one and this one.  These Prada sunnies are my favorite and are on sale right now at Nordstrom in black!

Shop this look:


Photo shoot rule #1 – Dogs always steal the show! (This one was walking with his owner when he couldn’t miss a chance to get in the picture!)

Other misc side note: Loving what this product does for my hair!

And this super pretty lipstick and extra moisturizing lip oil from Decorte!
