ootd: poncho power

by - 8:17 AM

[disclaimer: this post features many firsts; my new JB-inspired bangs, my first attempt at an outdoor photoshoot and your first peek at my backyard. You. are. welcome.]

A few weeks ago, in the midst of a massive thrifting spree, my lovely friend Amanda and I discovered a new section of the store: pochos & shawls. It may have been the fatigue or overwhelming hunger that caused us to buy matching shawls, but I like to think the thrifting gods smiled upon us! {and our closets}

To the untrained eye, this might just look like a giant fringed squared-shaped blanket, but with a belt and a bit of patience it turned out to be the perfect knit cocoon of style. YUM. Plus it's so fun to twirl around in.

Yesterday's weather was perfect for some black-and-red shawl action, and I paired it with a pair of knee high black leather boots and leggings for a comfy and cosy autumn outfit. Fringe + reversible weave + comfy cotton make this the most fashionable blanket you'll ever wear. 

Kimono sleeves.

Action shot.
The end. 

I love how I can wear it as a shawl, or wrap a belt around and turn it into a jacket of sorts. Plus, the intarsia weave makes it reversible..twice as many options!
