Fall & Winter Style: Black and white striped fringe poncho, jeans, TOMS wedges


  1. This poncho was a huge hit for us last season…looking to snag more this Fall. Glad to have found you thru OutoftheBoxMama! xo

  2. My subconscious is regrettably quite good at coming up with nightmare scenarios based on my real problems, and it combines them in new and disturbing ways. My Depression is only too happy to provide the material, and the subconscious that fuels my creative mind takes that nightmare food and produces reasons for me to wake up in the middle of the night screaming – and I’m a very deep sleeper, so I have to sit through that movie right up until the end.

    I’d like to believe that your theory is right, but my fears are based in perfectly rational financial and employment – based problems, and my mind is full of real world facts, figures, and reasons to back them up, and if I don’t find a way to pay that mortgage, I will lose the house, and if I don’t pay the bills, things will stop working, and if I don’t find money for gas to get to work, I won’t keep the job that doesn’t keep things going so well at all, and I have to eat, feed the cats, and if I don’t figure out how to get someone to call me in for an interview to a better job that I will be better at, all of this will continue indefinitely until something finally breaks, and things get even worse than they are now.

    I don’t need nightmares. I have a reality that is nightmare enough without help.

  3. I actually love dreaming. For some reason while I’m dreaming, no matter how horrible or scary it is, I somehow always know that I’m dreaming, so it doesn’t really bother me. Instead I totally just enjoy it! I know, it’s so weird.

    You look great in this poncho!

  4. You make complete since! I hate night terrors, usually I get out of bed and have my dog help me patrol the house, then I get back in bed – allowing the dog into the room with us (which my husband hates) and I curl real close to my husband with my back to him so I feel it is protected and my dog is on my side of the bed’s floor. Then I dream of bunny rabbits and rainbows until I fall back asleep.

    BTW love this outfit on you! You look amazing!
    xo, Lee

  5. Bad dreams are the worst! But once I say them out loud I realize how silly they sound, usually my husband makes me share them out loud too! Sometimes even out loud they are scary but most times they are not.

  6. This is going to sound crazy, but I have only ever had bad dreams either (a) when I’m really, really tired and sleep super deeply or (b) after each of my kids were born. After each of our kids were born (like, for a few months afterward), I would have a really hard time going to sleep and when I would fall asleep, I would have weird nightmares and wake up a lot throughout the night (in between the baby waking up, haha). It slowly went away each time, but I actually think it’s related to my hormones. During “that time of the month”, I have the same restless sleep but don’t have nightmares. It’s weird. The thing that has helped me is deep breathing exercises and I try to calm my mind so I can go back to sleep.
