I’m going to go ahead and say it… sometimes, winter fashion leaves me uninspired. Perhaps it’s because Dallas weather never gets snowy enough for really fun winter wear (like this amazing coat… a girl can dream) or maybe because I’m more drawn to the flirty, feminine silhouettes of spring and summer. Either way, I’m often catch myself thinking, “If I have to put on a sweater, jeans and boots one more time…” Anyone feel me?
And then last week, I bumped into a breakthrough in the form of this darling, striped poncho…
PONCHO Grey Striped Poncho | BOOTIES Jeffrey Campbell Booties | SUNGLASSES Black Ray Bans | BAG Mini Tory Burch 797 Satchel | JEANS J.Crew Toothpick Jeans | SHIRT Free People Top (a favorite staple) | NECKLACE Akola Project Necklace | NECKLACE Pearl Necklace (in store at H&M) | WATCH Kate Spade Watch | LIP COLOR Cherry Blossom | NAIL COLOR Russian Navy
To keep things fresh and fun during these chilly months, stock up on a few lesser expensive top coats! This exact poncho from Nordstrom BP is a new closet favorite. The material is so soft and the shape super chic – one of those pieces that looks incredibly stylish without you having to do much. The best part? It’s just $38! And comes in a beautiful navy and red as well, which I’m definitely thinking about snatching up.
I have to also give a quick shoutout to my new favorite booties… these Jeffrey Campbell beauts! Believe it or not, I had seen these on a random girl a few weeks ago and thought “I need those.” Since she was a total stranger, I decided not to freak her out by asking where she got them. Imagine my excitement at running into them last week! A love (and purchase) at first site kinda thing. I’ve worn them all weekend and can’t remember the time I loved a shoe more! They fit a little small, so I went a half size up.
Hope everyone is off to a great Monday! Friends… WE CAN OFFICIALLY SAY CHRISTMAS IS NEXT WEEK.
Love from Texas,
