Once upon a time I said with 85% confidence that I would treat myself to a couple of new items for fall. Fast forward to December and I’m the happy owner of a cozy poncho. Much like a large scarf, the poncho is a mobile blanket – a form of coziness and comfort appropriate enough for daytime outings and the office. (Though don’t get me wrong, if I’m cold enough I will cover myself in a large blanket and wear fingerless gloves at the office. No shame).
Thankfully, Virginia is taking it’s sweet time to roll into winter weather, which means I get to wear this puppy well into December. After the Thanksgiving holiday I fell into a leisurely routine of slumbering, coffee sipping, crosswording, and sporting a uniform of pajamas and/or large sweaters on a daily basis, so I’m hopeful that some stylish comfort-wear will ease my transition back into the craziness that is December events. This is positivity, not delusion…
(P.S. It looks like this poncho is on sale at Old Navy, so you can join me on my cozy crusade!)
