fall go-to outfit #6 - poncho sweater

Wednesday, November 25, 2015

 First, I've been posting some "fall go-to" outfits but now I'm wondering: when does fashion transition from fall to winter?

Is it temperature based? When there's snow on the ground? A certain date?

Well, I don't know the answer but we'll keep this a fall outfit for now... stay-tuned for some winter "go-tos" cause, you know, I'm fancy like that.

Let me tell you about this outfit. Sometimes I struggle to get dressed. Okay, I struggle on the regular. I have a closet full of clothes but given my often sleep-deprived state, I'm not always able to get dressed quickly. I regularly stand in the doorway of my closet and stare into the abyss that is my closet. I stare and think "I have nothing to wear". ANYWAYS, on this day, I just wanted to be warm. I pulled this ponchy-ish sweater I've had for years and paired it with a red long-sleeved tee. Throw on some jeans, boots, red lipstick and I'm ready to take on the world. And by 'world', I mean a 2.5 year old and 4 month old (same difference, right?!).

Wanna know a secret? Lipstick freaks me out BUT I find it so much fun to wear. I feel like I can get away with only mascara if I put on some red lipstick. Added bonus: mascara and lipstick is like the quickest make-up routine EVER! Pretty much awesome if you're a mom on the run or otherwise have no time. It proved to be the perfect accessory for this outfit!! 

Are you loving the poncho this fall?
