Wearing A Poncho with Green and Neutrals

When i first saw this cable knit poncho it looked comfy, i thought it would be nice to perhaps just throw on around the house, like a wearable blanket i guess. Little did i know i would actually grow to love this perfect poncho. I throw it on all the time! Its snuggly and warm and i just love the look when paired with some skinny jeans and boots. Like my favourite gilet, the poncho is ideal for throwing on when you're just going from car to shop or car to cafe in this case.
These photos were taken just after Christmas when we had gone out for some fresh air and a Costa coffee. It was pretty late in the day and the light was diminishing fast making photos nigh on impossible, so please excuse the softness as they have been tweaked to high heaven haha! But i just wanted to share my new love of poncho's. Who would have known that these would have come back round! 
Plus straight after Christmas the poncho is perfect for hiding those food babies and those pesky few pounds that have appeared around my midriff from all those choccies i consumed and the crackers, and cheese crisps, and christmas cake..opps)
Coincidentally i'm actually sat here right now wearing my poncho again.. its just so snuggly!! I actually caught my son wearing it in bed, fast asleep last night, he think a wearable blanket is awesome, and i have to say i agree with him!

Poncho: George at Asda (sale £10)

  12. This knit poncho is really cute on you! It really has a different look than a Mexican-type poncho. It looks like a cozy blanket that you wear. Definitely something perfect to throw on and cover up a food baby!
