what i wore {colorful poncho}

December 26th | what I'm wearing

Hello Wednesday! We are all having the ‘Christmas hangover’, how about you? Matthias came down with strep throat a couple days before Christmas, and David has some sort of tummy trouble going on–which is keeping him from sleeping well. Which means it’s keeping us from sleeping. These are the eyes of a mama who has been up since 3am. But no worries, I’m squeezing in plenty of naps and relaxation. And coffee. I’m linking up with Lindsey from The Pleated Poppy to share some fashion inspiration!

Favorite jeans, British brand, Fat Face. Black, flowy top, Target. {I’m loooving this top for layering. It’s become a staple. I layer a black camisole underneath}. Poncho, Forever 21. Booties, Steve Madden. From Any Angle Necklace, my shop. {this necklace is a staple, too!}

Well I’m off to do more laying around, reading magazines, and hanging out with family. And I think we’re going to squeeze some thrifting in there too! I’ll have pics of our family Christmas to share tomorrow.

I’m obviously a yes–I have a few ponchos that I’ve been wearing lately, but I’d love to hear your thoughts. What do you think, ponchos–yes or no?

  1. Happy Holidays Lisa!
    Great poncho and I say yes on them. You need to give us lessons on how to pull it together, however!! You shine at that!

    I’m totally pro-poncho. I’m wearing one today. I call it my work-appropriate-snuggy!
    Meanwhile, what is the name and brand of that lovely red lipstick you are wearing? I’m a lipstick junkie and must have that color!

    Hi Lisa, I hope you’re still checking comments on this post. Can I ask a question about the cute poncho? Does it have arm holes (that sounds funny!) or just does it kinda lay over your shoulders? I love it – it’s so cute on you! Did you get yours in store, or order online?

      Hi Kristen! It just lays over the shoulders–no arm holes. The one pictured is from forever21–I ordered it online! xo

    Hi Lisa! I’m finally getting caught up on reading the blogs after being sick. I had to leave a comment because I bought the flowy top from Target in wine/maroon, but was second guessing how I would wear it. Thank you for the layering idea, I think I would have always been too formal with it! Now I want a poncho… :) Misty

      I am so happy that you like the layering idea Misty! I completely recommend getting a poncho, you won’t be disappointed. xo

        I’m so sad because I bought a poncho and had no idea how to wear it. Then I saw this blog and got all excited about the black target shirt, but they are all sold out of every size but XL. I’m still debating on buying it and getting it fitted. Do you have any other suggestions on shirts to wear under a poncho?

        I love your blog!!!

        • Lisa Leonard says:

          Yes definitely. Any longer shirt would look great with a poncho. You can stick with the color scheme of the poncho or go for another color of your choice. Hope this helps!
