The Perfect Poncho

Grapevine Texas // L.L. Bean Poncho, L.L. Bean Shirt, Madewell Jeans, Old Navy Flats

I never thought I would be saying this, but the item you have to add to your wardrobe this winter is a poncho. The sharp, classic shape paired with the beautiful wool fabric makes it perfect to throw over a professional outfit. I got mine in this great taupe color, but they now have a dark plum one online that reminds me of Gal Gadot’s outfit in the opening scene of Wonder Woman. It’s definitely been added to my wish list.

I paired this poncho with my favorite white button down from L.L. Bean. The material is wrinkle-free, which is fabulous, and thick enough that it’s not see-through. One of my biggest pet peeves is when a white blouse is too sheer to wear on it’s own. This shirt is the perfect piece to add to a wardrobe if you’re looking for something professional but stylish.

I’m going to rave about these jeans for a moment, because I feel as if I’ve been searching my whole life for the perfect pair of black jeans. They’re on the pricier side, but Madewell has the occasion sale worth waiting for. The fit is amazing, tight but comfortable through the legs and the high waisted style is unbelievably flattering. I got a pair in a dark wash as well and they’re the only jeans I want to wear now.

Haley James Scott wore a poncho in One Tree Hill, so it’s totally fine for all of us to, right? What are your thoughts? Is this piece a yay or nay?
