Confident Twosday: White Poncho

I've been wanting a poncho for quite a while so I was thrilled to have found this one on Sammydress last month. The soft white color goes with literally everything and the coziness factor cannot be beaten! If you are worried about a poncho swallowing your figure whole, go for a slightly fitted one like this. Its still got a relaxed fit, but doesn't overwhelm with its size (For reference I am wearing a size medium.). Try pairing your poncho with skinny jeans and riding boots, too. A more fitted pant will to help balance out all the fabric on top. 




Even though I am all about the poncho, today these boots are making me feel confident. I bought them (a big splurge at the time) when I was a college student in London. Boots were starting to be big way back then and I hated all the cheap pairs I saw. I got these ones in a little shop in Greenwich and I have to pat my younger self on the back. Riding boots are still quite popular and these have seen many miles and continue to look darn good. If that doesn't make you feel good about your outfit, what does?!

  2. Your poncho looks so cosy and I love the striped tee layered underneath it! :) I think leather boots are always a great investement - with a lot of care they can easily last for years. My mum's favourite pair she's had resoled countless times and are over 10 years old and still look great!

    Thank you for the link up!

  15. I love your poncho (especially layered with stripes!) and the boots are great. You can't beat a good pair of riding boots--I have a pair that I wear ALL the time. They were a bit of a splurge at the time too, but I'm so thankful I got them. Good shoes are worth it!

  32. Oh! I love this look! The light creamy color is perfect for layering anything underneath. I don't always like bulky sweaters and end up pushing up the sleeves 3/4 so these shorter sleeves are perfect in my book!
    Great look!
