A few weeks ago, I kind of fell in love with this poncho. I know – I’m obsessed with all things cape/poncho/wrap, the works. But when it arrived, it was kind of big and being only 5’2″ it kind of overwhelmed me a little bit. Feeling a little torn, I decided to get creative because I really loved the color and fabric enough to keep it. I should also mention, it’s a great wrap and I don’t doubt I will try and wear it loose at some point in the future, but this minor dilemma got my thinking of ways to make it work.
I loved the idea of wrapping a belt around the waist to create what now looks like a coat. Also, it was snug and I don’t have to adjust it as time passes because it’s secured in place. Stripes underneath were an easy choice and the perfect little bit of contrast to an otherwise basic color scheme.
What do you think? Would you try this look at home? It’s slightly dressy but I think the jeans pulled it a little more to the casual side.
A few of you asked me how I belted my blanket scarf the other night and I’ll have to see if my husband and I can get a few step-by-step pictures together for how I managed todays look, too. Coming soon!
