Ponchos & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!

October 8, 2015
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!

I found this adorable vintage floral handbag at an antique market in Monterey.  I fell in love with it right away. I love when something vintage echoes something so on trend … in this case, florals!

Spring Patterns & Fun Fashion Friday Link Up!

March 19, 2015
We’ve had amazing weather lately in San Jose.  I feel a little guilty enjoying it so much, because first of all, a lot of my blogging buddies and readers are still buried in snow, and second of all, California desperately needs rain.  But since I have no control over either situation, I’m just gonna enjoy the sunny 80 degree days!
And one way I’m enjoying the weather is by wearing bright pretty patterns for spring!
