Summer is hands down my favorite time of the year. Everything about it is just magical, the weather, long days, hanging out with friends, going to the beach, days by the pool, I could go on and on.
If you are a summer lover like me, you know how hard and cold the winters are. I am always freezing and once it gets dark out at 4:30pm I just want to stay home. Unfortunately, we cannot hibernate in our houses, so I always try and find fashionable ways to stay warm.
One of my favorite fashionable ways to stay warm is by wearing a poncho. These things will keep you so warm and stylish. My poncho collection has grown over the past few winters and I hope it continues to grow and keep me warm!
This southwestern red, black, and grey poncho is from Express. My boyfriend got it for me probably two winters ago. I have recently seen similar ponchos to this one in the Express outlet.
This poncho is so warm and comfy and it is perfect to wear on an extremely cold day. One of my students even asked me if I was wearing a blanket because of how comfortable it looked. The poncho itself is a big statement piece so whenever I wear it I usually keep the rest of my outfit black.
For this look, I wore a black long sleeve shirt and a pair of black ripped jeans under my poncho. I wanted to keep the southwestern theme going throughout my outfit so I wore a pair of grey booties from Toms that have a similar pattern on them.
I also wore a southwestern inspired necklace and a pair of red sunglasses to match my poncho. An outfit like this one will keep you warm and cozy all day, especially on days when you just want to stay home.
Ponchos are currently available in so many stores. I have seen them in a ton of stores in the mall, and stores outside of the mall such as Kohls and Target. Ponchos are also fun to style with a belt for a more structured look. No matter how you style them, I hope they keep you warm and cozy this winter!
