Classy Houndstooth Poncho...

Poncho: Forever 21 | Sweater: Forever 21 | Denim: 7FAM | Booties: old, similar | Bag: Tory Burch | Sunnies: Ray-Ban | Necklace: J.Crew Factory | Watch: Michael Kors | Lipstick: Bobbi Brown - Soft Rose

When I was a young girl, my mom bought me a beautiful houndstooth coat to wear to nice functions. It was a gorgeous coat, and as a rambunctious pony-tailed girl who only wanted to play soccer, I think it was my first, undeserved taste of classic style (the amount of ranch dressing that was spilled on that coat was pitiful). Although I was the opposite of a budding micro-fashionista, I did develop a love for houndstooth. 

Fast forward 15 years...

Ok so I still want to dress in soccer shorts 80% of the time, however this poncho feels so much like a blanket, it's that comfortable (and flattering!).  It's perfect for those days where you just want to curl up in a blanket, but this poncho lets you do that without having to play hooky! I love that the print isn't too tight, so the pattern isn't harsh looking. I wore this to work the other day with a black long sleeve tee, ponte pants and these bow flats, and it was a comfy but classy work look.  

On another note - it's become clear to me that I need a black handbag. Seriously, how have I gone this long without one?? If you have any handbags that you love and want to share, please let me know! I'm thinking slightly smaller in size than my Tory Burch tote. 

Have a great day! xoxo
