It’s just so much fun to wear! You can have wings, and you can twirl, and you can pretend you are flagging a bull down [guilty as charged], and you can wrap yourself like a blanket… the list goes on and on! Ponchos/capes/blanket scarves are a trend I can wholeheartedly get behind and plan on sporting frequently. This exact poncho is here, but there are so many out there I want. Like every single one of these:
The shirt is from the Gap Outlet and is about 2 years old. I probably have close to 10 white shirts, but I’m a firm believer in never having enough of those. This one is made unique thanks to the little gold buttons on the end of the sleeve- making it work well with the poncho that comes about three-quarters of the way down my arm. White shirts go with everything [read: worthwhile investment].
The necklace was also purchased a ways back from Jane.com. I’ve gotten more jewelry than I’m comfortable admitting from that website, but when it’s like $6 for a necklace… what can I say? I’m a sucker for deals. This one is similar, just without the brown stones. I feel like this one almost has an antique look to it. Truth: A majority of the necklaces I own are from antique stores. My grandmother has excellent taste in knowing what jewelry I love and combine that with the Edwards/Daniels love for antiquing, I’ve built quite a collection! On that note, these boots were also purchased from an antique store! [I’m telling you- when you learn the good ones to go to, you can find just about anything!] Cowboy boots are a must in the south, but I’d venture to say that everyone should have a pair. They’ve got that perfect combination of sass and comfort that make them work with jeans and a t-shirt or a super cute dress.
Do you have a certain store or type of store that sucks you in like T.J.Maxx and antique stores [and online shopping and the outlets and…oh boy] do for me?
[Sidenote: Brett and I hit four months of marriage today! I know it isn’t long, but I still get excited none-the-less. Besides, he also told me I’m only allowed to recognize months for the first year… so I’ll soak it up while I can!:)]
[Sidenote 2: This was my sister’s first time taking blog photos, and I already know I’ll be asking her again soon [heads up, Mel:)]. She is quite the photographer though, especially with landscape and nature portaits! Check her out at Melissa Boone Photography!]
