Have you started wearing your Poncho’s yet? Or have you not yet picked one up? I am telling you, I have been a fan of poncho’s for quite some time! I have a red, knitted one I bought like 12 years ago that I cannot get rid of b/c I just love it so much – I will feature it on the blog this winter!
So do you ever buy something at the very end of the season, when the weather is way to opposite of the season you would wear said item in? This was one of those deals! I bought this last spring at The Limited, on clearance and totally forgot about it until I was moving my clothes around in my closet! I was so excited to find an item that had not yet been worn and I couldn’t wait to style it!
Now you know I love flare leg jeans and I really love this look with the fur collar I added to the poncho! But I think poncho’s look so cute with skinny jeans and tall boots or ankle booties as well! What I love about poncho’s is that with little kids that need to be buckled into car seats, back packs and diaper bags that are being carried to and from the car a girl can get hot, even in the winter! I always start my car before leaving so it’s super warm when I get in. Wearing a poncho helps me to stay warm without overheating – and it’s a complete look with no coat covering up a cute top!
I thought you would all love some poncho options to get you started so shop these below!!

Have you heard this song? It is one my favorites and it will bring me to tears EVERYtime I hear it! I turn it up loud and belt it out in the car when I am alone (which is rare) and I love playing it when I feel defeated, down, or unworthy…and it has a way of making me feel stronger!
I have mentioned that I was going to start a “confessional” post each week or every couple weeks! I have decided to do this b/c so many things weigh on my heart and mind that fall outside of fashion and I really want you to all get a true picture of who I am, and I hope that my being honest about my struggles, my pain, my insecurities, my highs, and my silly situations you too will find strength in your own circumstances. I am headed to visit a friend for the next couple of days and this is going to be a time of restoration for me. I will be planning some topics I want to share rather confessionals for you all! Stay tuned.
I will tell you that my first truth / confessional is that I feel overwhelmed and unmotivated these days…being a stay at home Mom has many, many blessings (more than I can count) but it doesn’t come without a cost. I want to be candid with you all about my experience – which is still going on! I will touch on that when I get back!
Have an amazing week! Go be the light in someones world who could use it! XX Kim
