As much as I want to look cute, I also just love being comfortable. That’s one of my favorite parts of winter… suddenly it’s acceptable again to swath your body in layer upon layer of coziness. So while this poncho is certainly not the most flattering piece in my closet, it is pretty awesome because it’s crazy comfortable. I wore it with my leather leggings here, but you better believe I’ll be wearing it with jeans, mini skirts, boots, and regular old leggings as much as I can get away with (before my coworkers tell me to wear something else!)

PS – Greetings from Portland. I made it safe + sound and we’re off to wine country today.

    Love that sweater! I just ordered a sweater from Cuyana, but as I live in Florida, I won’t be wearing it until I travel to Ohio! Love the cape/poncho style.

  2. Word on the street (okay, more like Twitter) says it’s flurrying in Chicago! I wonder what this means for the rest of the country. I need to break out my heavy layers asap 😉
