gypsy child






I think I let out an embarrassingly audible squeal this morning when I opened a much-anticipated package from ModCloth. The first thing that caught my eye? This beauty of a poncho, The Wanderer Cape, just screams traveling gypsy child that I immediately threw on my riding boots and headed for a field.

Until the wind pretty much foiled my posed plans. I lost the hat once past the barb wire fence (thanks for fetching it Michele) and actually lost my balance numerous times because of some gusts.

So if it looks like I'm hanging on to my garments to save my life, it's because I am.

How's everyone's Tuesday, thus far?

Cape: The Wanderer Cape by Hot & Delicious, courtesy of ModCloth
Blouse: Button down chambray shirt, Gap
Shirt: White v-neck t-shirt, American Apparel
Pants: Black leggings, Target
Hat: Black panama hat, Halston
Shoes: Tan riding boots, vintage

P.S. Be sure to check back tomorrow. I have some exciting news that I can't quite divulge just yet!

  1. nice! if you're into gypsy style, history & culture, you should check out the book Gypset Style...it's about the evolutionary style & approach to life of sorts that fuses the gypsy and jetsetter cultures.

  4. LOVE the cape!! I love that you paired it with a denim shirt and brown boots for a little western flair but the fedora totally makes it more city-chic!

  5. I seriously think I just thrifted a pair of boots that are identical to those, only a little darker brown. I love them, obviously.

  6. That cape looks very warm for winter! I'm glad you like it so. But I am in love with the BOOTS! I'm kind of disappointed they are vintage, but it's always good something like that is rare.
