Spring 'Uniform'

how to wear a poncho over 40

Remember these fabulous, baggy yet incredibly slimming trousers?  I know I showed them to you just a couple of weeks ago, but I couldn't resist the temptation to do another post on them... That's what happens when I find something I like: I wear it all the time. And I mean really ALL the time...

So, here we are, the baggy trousers again, this time with one of my favourite long-sleeved t-shirts (which has been featured on the blog more times than I can count...) and a checked poncho.

The wool poncho is something of a spring / summer staple for me: easy to wear, goes with anything, and warm on cooler days. I have a few of these ponchos, in different colours. I wear them instead of a jacket, I guess I like the idea of having something comfy and snuggly to wrap around myself...

What do you like to wear in spring?



  1. I think you are a total rock chick in this outfit. Easy does it. And your background makes this photoshoot awesome.

    1. Thanks Greetje. The background is a railway station a few stops from where I live. I always pass it on my way to the airport and often think that the wall art would make a great backdrop for a photoshoot...

  2. You are totally rocking that poncho in a Springy look. That t-shirt is fabulous, no wonder you have worn it a lot!

    Welcome by and join my latest brand-new Thursday Moda linkup currently live on the blog, today. Thanks and have a great weekend!

    1. Thanks, Ada. I actually have 2 of these t-shirts. The exact same shirt. That's how much I like it...

  3. Spring uniform. I don't think of your outfit as an uniform. I also don't think that you are in a style rut this spring. You look great and the outfit is interesting. Thanks for linking up to Top of the World Style.

    1. Thanks Nicole. Well, it's a 'uniform' in the sense that I tend to wear something like this most of the time, and the poncho is sort of a staple for this time of year...

  4. Fun look and creative backdrop! Thanks so much for sharing with Fun Fashion Friday!

    1. Thanks! I've wanted to use this location as a backdrop for a photoshoot for a while now, the wall art is quite impressive and fun.
