One thing that I cannot stop wearing this season is the poncho. Since they come in all different colors, patterns, and fabrics, ponchos are one of the most versatile pieces of autumn – which means you need to get yourself one, like, yesterday. These dignified snuggies also make for the ideal Thanksgiving look, which can be easily dressed up or down for first turkey day with the BF’s family, or homeless-chic Friendsgiving with pals. See, versatile!
I picked up this poncho at Charleston’s newest gem, Apricot Lane. Y’all, this is not a drill – this store is the real deal. They have such adorable, trendy pieces at the BEST price point. As you may recall if you follow me on Facebook or Instagram, I mentioned that I was co-hosting an event with my girl Tara Belle to welcome this sweet new shop to the neighborhood. It was impossible not to spend the whole event shopping for myself – oops! This poncho was one (of many) of my finds that night, and I’ve been wearing it nonstop ever since.
When it came to styling this cozy little number, I kept things relatively simple with a neutral color palette. Winter white skinnies (with major stretch for that Thanksgiving food baby), cognac booties, a knotted belt, and a grey v-neck tee were just about all this look needed. However, because we all know this chick can’t go minimal to save her life, I topped off the look with another statement piece – a snakeskin Taxidermy bag. Local girls, stopping by the Taxidermy showroom on Spring is absolutely imperative. Everything is to-die, Amy is the bomb.com, and your Christmas list will make itself. Oh, and did I mention you can hold the same bag Beyoncé has?
As for my jewels, I opted for silvery steel tones instead of my usual gold (!) with these amazing ear jackets and ring from Theodosia. And last but not least, my trusty stack of B&B bangles – hey, I had to sneak a little gold in there.
This is what I’ll be rocking this Thursday – what outfits do y’all usually wear on Thanksgiving to balance comfy and chic?
