I love a neutral wardrobe for the ease of coordinating. And while red may still be out of my comfort zone, I’m fully embracing everything green. Today I have a fun outfit featuring the leggings I’ve been raving about since the first time I tried them, with a festive poncho, in no surprise…plaid! I’m thrilled to partner once again with Talbots and ShopStyle to share a holiday look for our new casual lifestyle.
I discovered the ease of poncho’s several years ago and haven’t looked back. There’s something so easy about popping a poncho over whatever you’re wearing.
This cozy, black watch plaid poncho has a flattering ribbed cowl neck which is a perfect frame for your face:) I like my shirt collar popping above it but you could easily wear yours inside.
The poncho is a nice length to cover leggings but not so long that it looks overwhelming. The fabric is a blend that includes a small amount of wool but it’s not the least bit scratchy. It looks warm but is pretty lightweight so you could easily layer it over heavier things for warmth. I’m wearing XS/S which has plenty of room.
These Soho leggings are one of my favorite purchases this fall! Talbots make the Soho legging in several prints which all have a slightly different fabric. I can’t comment on others but this ponte is stellar! It holds everything in place without making your legs look like a sausage casing! Win/win.
Their pull-on styling means no added bulk from zippers or snaps so you could wear them under a slim-fitting tunic top. The zipper detailing at the ankle means you can’t hem them so be sure you buy your proper length. I am wearing a PM which is perfect for me (I am 5’4″). They also look great tucked into knee boots.
I added a bit of sparkle with these Double Snowflake Drop Earrings, Keepsake Bangle, and Sterling Silver Ball Bangle. The keepsake bangle has a row of tiny pearls so it coordinates with the earrings. Not that jewelry needs to coordinate and mine often doesn’t, but some of us like to match things.
Here, I dressed the poncho down with my barely boot jeans in the Bermuda wash. This Nightfall wash is darker blue which would dress the look up a bit. I’m wearing them with my perfect white shirt. I wear a 10 regular in this because I need the extra length for my long arms. Its non-iron fabric makes it easy to care for and travel friendly.
And finally, my blue suede boots. These are my favorite purchase this fall. They’re in constant rotation in my wardrobe and will be for years to come. Talbots always has festive jewelry for the holidays. My Polar Bear pin is sadly sold out, but they still have this Ice Skates Brooch which is super cute too.
