Four Reasons to Consider Getting a Hooded Duster

The Challenge
Those ingenious women over at TBB have given us all a weekly activity to participate in, or not. 
I wasn't sure if I'd have to sit this one out, because I didn't think I had anything that I would consider "long."  Then, I remembered this duster that I found this spring on clearance from Urban Outfitters, so I guess it was from last winter, found this while shopping with daughter #3.  When I tried it on, she said it went so well with what I was wearing at the time, it looked like I had worn it into the store as part of my outfit.  And, "Yay" it's orange for Halloween--Ha!

The Details
Y'all know I love my "color clashing" and this outfit is no different.  It's a kinder, gentler version of a red/orange clash.  And while the traditional blouse with a collar and cuffs has fallen out of favor (at least in my closet and this part of the country), sometimes it becomes the perfect piece.  Plus, I've always liked how a traditional collar frames my face.  The rest of the accessories fell into place with the color combined booties and pink belt.


The Takeaway
Or, the four reasons you may want to consider getting a hooded duster:  1) It will look great with your western wear pieces.  Kind of like a cowboy duster.   2) The hood gives a nod toward an athleisure vibe if you want to go that route.   3) Gives you an instant chic look.  This may just be my opinion, but whenever I see a woman in a well turned out duster, she often looks like she's "got it goin' on."  4) They are cozy.  Now, "cozy" doesn't usually end up on my style radar, but there is something to be said about walking around in what feels like a bathrobe!   5) Bonus:  You can "twirl around" with the nearest little girl in your life!

  6. Oh my gosh, girl, I’m so glad you said something about collared blouses - I’ve been looking for some for the longest time and can’t find any. So now I know it’s not just our area, it’s everywhere. I’m totally digging that orange and pink color clash. Such a funky combo - I love when you do these types of looks.

  7. The color of this cardigan is amazing against your blouse. It's actually a pretty color combo! And for me, hoods and pockets are a must. This cardigan meets this criteria.
