Welcome to the first outfit post of 2016! To be quite honest, I don’t think I would’ve ever picked out this poncho (and in red!) for myself…but that’s one of the best parts about Christmas gifts! So I was surprised when I liked this present from my aunt so much. It’s so comfy!
As someone who doesn’t play with texture in my clothing too much, this is a nice statement piece that adds variety. But my favorite thing about my poncho so far? It’s food baby foolproof. Both days I’ve worn it, I knew I was going to eat a lot. Which is exactly what we did before and after Chrystina took these pictures (Menagerie Coffee for bagels and blogging and Tea-Do for bubble tea, because obviously…and Cheesecake Factory after that).
Is opting for a poncho instead of a light coat adventurous enough that I can keep the rest of my outfit basic? Because that’s what I’ve been doing so far, just jeans and a top. I do think my earpins are a subtly cool touch (my mom and I each bought a pair the last day of the Christmas market from Eardivine.)
Anyone else trying the poncho trend? How do I step my game up?
P.S. Thanks again for the snaps, Chrystina!
