Modern Hippie: Faux Fur Vest, Poet Shirt , and Jeans

by Daenel

Dani Blue Sky Eagle Feather. That’s my hippie name. Everyone has one, right? I can’t remember exactly how I got that name but I do know that my cousins, my sisters, an old Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, and Buckingham County, Virginia were involved. I really wish I could remember the story because I’m sure it’s a good one. Well, as good as a story involving a bunch of 10~year~olds can be, anyway.

Even at that age I knew I was born in the wrong decade. I used to tell my mother that I should’ve been a hippie. Not a pot smoking commune dwelling hippie , but a protest sign carrying daisy pushing bell bottom wearing hippie. For the most part, I keep that side of me under wraps at work, but yesterday I really didn’t feel like fussing with my clothes so I threw on a poet shirt, flare legs, boots, and called it a day.

For all of my hippie/bohemian ways, silver jewelry has only recently made it on my radar. For years, I was a strictly gold kinda girl. I liked the warmth. But the more I look at silver pieces, the more I like them. They add a bit of funk to an outfit that I just don’t think you can get with gold jewelry.

Those boots are probably one of the most flexible articles of clothing in my closet. I can wear them with dresses like I did here and here or jeggings like I did here and here. I’m not completely sold on them with flare leg jeans though. I think flare legs require a clog style shoe or, at least, something with a more substantial heel.

PS Don’t let the sun rays fool you, it was cooooold out there but I kept getting all sorts of funky shadows in the house. The sacrifices I make for these Wednesday posts…LOL

    On occasion I like to rock the hippie look. But my favorite decade is the 50s.. You look like a cool chic :)

      The 50s were so ladylike. That was one of my favorite decades to teach when I taught history. I used to talk about fashion, style, home decor.

    I love this look, girl. We’ve already talked about how we’d have been prairie garb wearing BFFs back in the day, but I am feeling this outfit for the here and now! I am so so so happy that flares are coming back! I think I may actually go back to wearing pants again. I love silver – I wore more of it in college, but wear more gold now. I love them both! (I am totally going to start working on my hippie name now.)

      Yep. LOL Whenever my kids meet someone with a name like Rainbow or River, they tell them “Oh, my mom’s gonna want to change my name again.” The only reason they don’t have true hippie names is that The Hubs wouldn’t co~sign on it. I rarely wear jeans but when I do, they’re flares. I think they balance my hips and belly.
