Yesterday was my first day back after a very long break! I didn't feel like doing anything much, so I threw on a sweater + pants.
Today, it was the coldest weather ever (so they say) at 8 degrees, so I put on the fleece tights (didn't even care that they are purple - I live at my desk anyway!), tall wool ski socks, boots and a poncho. My legs are pretty warm and I wore in a coat + scarf and changed into the poncho.
Now, this poncho I have wanted since last year and let it pass and this year, it came up again just by chance (one of those clothing trunk sales shows). It was half off so I jumped. Of COURSE, once I got it home, I had no idea what to do with it. It's been in the closet for about two and a half months while I resolved my issues with it. Normally don't hate ponchos, but they don't really do my shape any favors. This one is different because the back is tapered, a little fitted and short. It doesn't make me feel like a block.
Today, with the dress, I think I really like the combo. On another day, I probably would have worn my reddish boots instead, but the fact that I have on purple tights made me want to stick with black instead. :)
