These days I am seriously obsessed with checking the forecast multiple times per day. I am always looking at that 10 day forecast and seeing if I have anything to look forward to weather wise. I've heard reports that it has been the coldest spring for quite a while. I believe it! Just yesterday we had another snow storm. Ug. So I have been dressing in darker colors as a protest. RIP Spring.

This poncho is one I got as a free item at DSW a couple years ago and this winter (?) spring (?) sprinter (?) I've been loving it. It is a great layer, alternative to a jacket, and it makes a really nice coverup for nursing.  It can also be worn as a blanket scarf, but I much prefer the coziness of wearing it like a blanket! I have a lighter weight one that doubles as a carseat cover and scarf, but this warmer one is wonderful while the weather stays on the cooler side. Hopefully that won't be much longer though!

  1. I love ponchos too; so comfy and really versatile to style. They can look amazing on almost any outfits, just like yours dear. Loving the black and white combo and how your statement necklace sparkles! Such a posh and edgy look!

  2. That's such a lovely cape, and a stunning monochrome outfit! I love the statement necklace for a bit of sparkle with it :)

    Hope you are having a lovely week so far. We have some cooler weather at last so it's starting to feel a little more like autumn, it's been warm for so long! Complete opposite of your weather situation, haha!

  3. I cannot believe how cold it's been up north this year! Crazy! At first I thought you had on headphones and then I realized they were ear muffs, lol! My brain is in Spring and so are our temps - actually it will be unusually hot - near 90 this week. That is just so messed up, we're boiling and y'all are freezing - why can't we just get a nice average temp and make everybody happy?
    You may be over the cold but you are dressed to kill my friend - so chic and fabulous!

  5. Aw man, sorry you are still stuck in freezing temps! I can't believe how many parts of the country are still getting snow/ice in April! You look great in black though, so at least there's that if the weather doesn't cooperate!

  9. I really keep my fingers crossed for you to bring some warmth over there! It was a summer day here in the Netherlands, very hot for this time of the year. Very strange, but welcome!

  11. That wrap is a great alternative because there are times I'll be in the car and get warm, so need to undress!!
    You guys have had the worst weather lately...I sure hope it clears up soon!!

  12. Mother Nature is bipolar. We just left our son's BB game and it was 20 mph winds with a wind chill of 29!! Brrr but you look oh so cozy and cute in that Poncho!!

  13. I feel you Laura! I think maybe, MAYBE we will stay in the 60's for a little next week and I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Some parts of my state got snow this week too, but I'm on the shore so it was just a very rainy day. I love the idea of a wrap instead of a heavy coat, it looks so cozy too!

  15. Ha! I know! Where the heck is the Spring?!! I'm so sick of it! I know some have had it worse, we have had at least a few Spring days tucked in-between the cold! I love this poncho, so cute and I love the ear muffs paired with it!
