A FINE LINE...and a link up to Silverstyle


Hello darling readers, today I was going to link up with Tammy at http://www.silverstyle50.blogspot.com/ for Trending through the Decades but I was too late. This week she chose layers.  I think there is a fine line between looking like a bag lady and appearing chic when layering clothing, especially when you are short and the layers are thick and/ or long..  The Olsen's do this with such ingenious skill. 
I have been wearing this vintage Lancaster hat a lot.

I left my hair tucked in my sweater, my next major haircut will be similar to this length...shoulder or shorter.  That is my dog Georgie, she is constantly by my side.  Notice her opposite foot in front of mine as she catwalks...


I have been living in these Levis jeans lately.  I hacked off the bottom so that I can wear them without dragging them on the ground...who has time for hemming? 

vintage thrifted hat
F21 cape
thrifted beaded tassel sweater
Levis jeans that I hacked off at the bottom
thrifted Mossimo boots/new with tags
Thirfted turquoise color necklace

Anyway, home on the ranch has been busy but I will try to stop by your blogs today and grab some inspiration from y'all.  Hope you are staying inspired in this frigid weather...I am trying to.  I missed the link  up to Tammy at Silver Style but drop in for a minute, get inspired, make some new blogger friends and get started on Trending Through The Decades.

You look fab in layers, but I'd agree with you on the importance of editing. Great hat!

Hey doll! I miss you - we have to get together SOON! I love this poncho - you look super comfy and casual. I just got my hair lopped off at the shoulder. Sometimes I can't take it anymore and grab the scissors!!! Hope all is well! xoxo

all i could think of as i looked at your photos is how strikingly beautiful your hair is. i'm sure you look superb however you decide to cut or style it.

Kara said...

I LOVE you in that hat!! And the combo is a great one--I think the Olsen sisters would be proud:) Your hair is so lovely shining in the sun--of course it will be fabulous at a new length too, though I can't imagine you without your long, cascading curls:))

Dawn, you really wear hats so well girl. I think you did a fabulous job layering. I can't believe you're cutting your hair. It looks so fabulous long. It will look fabulous shoulder length too, but I hate to see you cut it. Hope all is well! ((HUG))
