How to wear a ponchoIt comes as absolutely no surprise to anyone that I’m wearing yet another poncho (and…full disclosure…I still have another poncho outfit to share). I wanted to change it up a little and dress it up this time around!

It’s fine, YOLO or something.

Instead of a t shirt, I paired my poncho with a gingham button down to dress it up a little bit. Of course a crisp white oxford would look fantastic too but y’all know I’m all about patterns. Also black and white gingham doesn’t show wrinkles as easily. #priorities

This black and white gingham shirt has proved itself to be one of my most versatile pieces in my wardrobe. You can layer it with just about anything – vests, sweaters, dresses and it tucks perfectly into skirts. If you don’t have one, definitely pick up a well fitting gingham shirt, you can thank me later.

I should probably write more but I just saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens for the third time and I’m sleepy.
