Fashion Blogger 50 Is Not Old is wearing a comfortable poncho with denim shorts and white Keds platform sneakers


Do you have small children around? If you do, then you know how they can wear you out. My children are all grown, but I have grandchildren who come to visit, and when they leave, I am pooped. Whew! I want to hand it to all the moms out there with small children because you have a rewarding but hard job. Keeping up with the grands calls for comfortable clothing that you can move in.

When I saw this lightweight poncho, the first thing that I thought of was, “that will be great for a casual, relaxed outfit.” I was right, and it will be great for the hot summer weather since the material is very lightweight and made of linen. I did add a white tank under the poncho because of the wide armholes.

This poncho also looks fabulous with the So Slimming No Stain white jeans that I’ve been wearing. I’ll show you some photos of where I wore it in Tennessee a couple of weeks ago. I am wearing the s/m in the poncho.

I told you that the poncho looks great with those white jeans. It would also look great with a pair of white Bermuda shorts, so I’ll see if I can find some for you.

Here is a good photo that shows you the length of the poncho. It is a great length, and it covers your behind nicely.

I am a HUGE fan of these vintage shorts. They feel fantastic, and they look cool. Vintage-looking clothing is having a “moment” right now, and I love the worn-in look of these shorts. These are a relaxed fit, so they are not tight around my thighs, and I appreciate that. I have them cuffed one roll, but you could roll them up one more if you wanted to wear them shorter. I am wearing a size 1 in the shorts, and they fit great.

I am loving my Keds platform sneakers. I love the leather and how crisp and white they look. My other favorite pair is my Sperry Crest Vibe sneakers, but they are not leather, and they get dirtier than the Keds. I am wearing my usual size 9 in these, and I think that they run TTS.

  1. Tania, I love how you always show pics of the “behind” view! Really cute poncho.

  2. I love both outfits and you look great in them. In a previous post, you said you have big thighs and calves. I sure don’t think so.

    Turned 63 last week and just started following you. I saw a picture of myself in an outfit that I have been wearing that was so wrong for me. You are inspiring me to update it! I am going through everything in my wardrobe and taking a picture of myself. My daughter and I are deciding what works for me and donating the rest. Thank you for giving me a new outlook so that I can find joy in how I look. My coloring and hair color are very similar so it helps. Love all the blue!

  4. I expect you could slip a long sleeve tee under this and wear on up into fall with jeans. It is a poncho but makes a great loose top.

  5. Kathy Johnston says:

    This poncho is beautiful but at $99 it’s a little too extravagant for me. Maybe it will be on sale later.

  6. Thank you, for the confidence boost to wear uplifting styles! I spray white shoes ( & suede) with Scotch Guard to keep them bright longer, protect against spills, driving heel, and have a white shoe polish to touch up leather. Luv to have whites pop!

  7. Love the whole outfit. The poncho is lovely.

  8. Hi Tania. The poncho looks comfy & cool and I like it with the white pants but not so much with the shorts. I have a pair of very similar shorts that I love, but I like to wear them with a top that’s more fitted. That being said, you’d look great in a paper bag!

    1. The white pants are my favorite also. But, there are times when I wouldn’t want to wear white, and being with the grands is one of those times. 😝

  9. wow the difference is amazing between the jeans and the shorts- super versatile!

    1. I love versatile clothing! I like being able to wear my things in multiple ways.

  10. Monica Ercanbrack says:

    Very pretty with the white pants for lunch with girlfriend’s and some shopping.
    Nice and casual also.

    1. I agree Monica! This look would be great for a luncheon with your friends.

  11. Thanks for the fun and informative post! I can attest for the wit and wisdom white shorts. I wear them all of the time in the summer. Comfy and super flattering. This will be the third year with the same pair of white shorts- a feat in and of itself.

    The entire wit and wisdom line is a big favorite for me!

    1. I love the Wit and Wisdom line also. You can’t go wrong with them.

    Beautiful outfit on you! Looks so comfortable.
