wiSww (what i SHOULD wear wednesday)

9 Jan

i’m back with a link up to the pleated poppy for what i wore wednesday.  i just add a tiny twist…this is what i should be wearing.  i am a stay at home mama of three…i need to be comfortable and i need to shop on a budget, but i also want to look like i made some effort and look a bit put together.  i also like to buy made in the usa anytime i can..so here we go…

at MiUS we are featuring a sale on our sweaters and capes (15% off and free shipping on domestic orders over $100).  now…what i want to wear cape fashion is this:


hello!  you are a pretty poncho/cape/sweater.  but (sigh) you are a little out of my price range.  so let’s get back to reality…i try to keep all my items at $50 or under!  and…better yet…they are all made in the USA!

okay…more my range.  the details?  i wasn’t too overly in love with this poncho when i first saw it on line.  and to be honest…was still a little “eh” when i saw it on a hanger.  (yea…i know the owner, so i get sneak peaks!) BUT i saw it on a friend at our trunk show and fell in love!   this is definitely one of those items that looks better on.  i will admit…the pattern is a lot for me but i think i would try it since it looked so great on ginger.

the earrings…i think this would be my only accessory since this is a pretty wild pattern for me.

the pants…well, if i was fun girl i would go with the royal blue super skinny jean.  but (ahem) i already wince at the “skinny” jean…toss “super” in there and i have to run for the hills!  haha.  so i would likely stick with my old faithful skinny jean there on the right.

details are below.  and don’t forget…our sweater and cape (poncho) sale ends on the 13th.  check the website for information and the promo code:)

sequin sweater/poncho $274.99

tribal print poncho $39.99

    I’d have to agree with you; I wasn’t a fan of that poncho either until I saw it on Ginger. She rocked it! I love the earrings you’ve paired with it.
