I've been seeing ponchos all over the place lately. And not those silly just "wear out in the rain ponchos", but rather the "totally in style, fabulous looking sweatery" ponchos! All my coworkers seem to have one, strangers I pass on the street, my sister, etc. ! It's got me thinking.... I need to get in on this!
I never thought I would try the trend for myself because I am short and didn't ever want it to overwhelm me. But the more I see them, the more I feel like I need one!! As I sit her typing this in my school's freezing cold library and hear the wind whipping outside, I really wish I was wrapped up in a cozy poncho! *Any teacher friends, who might be reading this, please don't tell the principal I blogged at school! HA! But, it is my lunch half hour, so I can use it as I wish!* A poncho is probably more acceptable than my blardigan at work. So naturally, when I see something I may like, I begin scoping out a few online! Here are a few of my faves!
This first poncho is from one of my favorite online retailers, I've mentioned a few times here on the blog, Gray Monroe. I like that it's plaid, and like half slit (different!) and looks somewhat fitted, as to not overwhelm me!

Fellow TBB buddy and blog friend, Lisa has posted numerous ponchos on her blog the past few weeks and that is one of the reasons, too, why I feel like I need one. She posted this one here and I just loved it, but didn't pull the trigger on it. I think I may need it though!!
This one from Old Navy looks really fun as well! And is super affordable. Actually all these are ponchos that won't break the budget! So for me that's great!
It's really hard to decide! I'm hoping the black friday sales will help me decide. And I may include one of these on my Secret Santa list. In my family, we buy presents for the kids and do Secret Santa with just the adults! A poncho just might make the perfect addition to my list!
Have you tried the poncho trend? Do you own and poncho or have on you love? Let me know about it in the comments below!
