Fashionistas and friends, I am back in the wildflowers again with this Poppy Edition of My Fashion Haus 04.2020. If you are about fed up with posts about and picture of poppies, you’ll be glad to know they have about faded for the year. But while they were still blooming in abundance, I took full advantage. Opened my fashion haus right there in the middle of all that yellow.

Spring Capsule Wardrobe Day 3
You guys know how much I love Alison Lumbatis and her capsule wardrobes. This spring’s capsule had a lot of staples with a few fun pieces and trending surprises. For one of my poppy encounters I chose to wear Day 3’s daily outfit. The formula for which was colorful cardigan + striped top + dark wash jeans + leopard shoes.
I don’t always follow the outfit equations to a T. But the top half of this look is pretty much on pointe. Boatneck Merona striped tee (similar, similar), Merona boyfriend cardigan (similar, similar) and distressed, super skinny Old Navy high waist Rockstar jeans (similar, similar).
Decided against wearing my leopard shoes because they are heels. Thinking it might be time to invest in a pair of leopard flats (I had some but wore them out!) or leopard sneaks. But for this day, I opted to go with my super comf navy Skechers (similar, similar).
Added some black stone clip-on earrings that belonged to Mom and black and yellow beads.
Was afraid these black stripes and the yellow cardigan might read ‘bumblebee’ but I don’t think it did.
Poppy Edition Photo Shoot
I had so much fun hanging out in the poppies for this post. PC was very supportive and took lots of pictures and even suggested different shots.
This was the last day before the stay at home restrictions were implemented.
There were so many folks wandering about the foothills in the flowers. I am really surprised we didn’t accidentally catch some of them in the background of our photos.
The poppies have faded in the last week. But I am glad that they were so beautiful this year. Grateful we all had an opportunity to enjoy them before we went into lock down.
Our stay at home order has been extended until 05.17.2020. More than a month longer. I was able to sneak a peek at my grands yesterday for just a few minutes while they were outside in their backyard. But I am desperate to hug them and hold them! Cami is changing so fast. We have been apart a third of her life. Waaaa!
With the interference of Covid-19 to the rhythm of our lives, I really haven’t had much occasion to get dressed in the last 2 weeks. We are riding bikes, running, working out at different times each day, so I tend to dress in active wear after my morning shower. Bought some pretty pieces for spring but just feel silly sitting around home in a dress or skirt. But I do want to start doing a little better than I have been.
Alison from Get Your Pretty On has created 5 free formulas for spring outfits. I just received them in my email box and you can, too. Just click here to register for them. Several pieces featured in this free downloadable PDF are also part of the spring capsule wardrobe. So check it out.
Hope you are hanging in there during this difficult time. Are you getting dressed each day or taking the lazy approach like I am? Maybe we can hold each other’s hand and encourage each other to get dressed a little more in the coming days. What do you say?
Thank you for coming by for this Poppy Edition of my fashion haus. Please stay home, and stay well.
Hugs and kisses,
