Wardrobe Wednesday : Celebrating Winter

I wore this yesterday: poncho – Shanton ($20 on a half price sale), black merino underneath – thrifted, grey merino tunic (worn underneath as a skirt)– glassons, charcoal merino tights – Farmers, boot(ies?)- dotti.

 Continuing with my 'Celebrate Winter' theme; I have basically been living in and loving this poncho since I bought it last Friday. Honestly, I get out of bed and shove this puppy on overtop of my PJs.

In a way this kind of breaks the mold of my typical style. For starters, I’m a pretty conservative dresser and this is a bit more out there, secondly I find that as a general rule I suit more fitted clothing due to me being petite/ a short stuff. However in spite my body type, I really like stylish, slouchy winter layers, and this poncho also has the benefit of being slightly fitted through the sides at the bottom and can be cinched in at the waist – which suits me better I think (?). I’ve also found that if I wear something less fitted on my top half, then it looks best if I wear more fitted pants or tights on my bottom half.

 As for the more out there-ness and Aztec pattern – I would have to say that I’ve definitely been influenced by the style of these two pretty classy ladies recently.

 As for my little girl’s Winter style? – She basically lives in this coat. (But lets face it, she’d pretty much look gorgeous in anything!)

That poncho is fantastic Jen, love the tones and really like how you have layered it.
I think this style really suits you.

Has nice proportions - the boots are a nice finishing touch - love the slouch and the colour (ahhh to have skinny legs!)

Love that coat on your wee one and I think allowing your petite to still be working on the bottom half creates wonderful balance. So great to have a winter fav!

I understand being also a more conservative dresser... but I really like that poncho and teaming it up with the red lippy looks great on you :) And she is so adorable!

Oversize is all about balancing proportions and you nailed it! This is such a cute outfit.

I love it Jenny! It's hard to believe it's a poncho. I made one years ago but couldn't get it to work for me. I never thought of teaming it up with a belt. I might have to have another play now you've supplied some inspiration!
