Over the summer when my aunt was visiting we drove out to East Hampton for a day spent wandering around the town, in and out of shops. One of them had this beautiful dark gray cashmere poncho with a ruffled hem. I immediately envisioned myself wearing it on a chilly day, walking around the village, coffee in hand. It would be perfect for those in-between temperatures, something that would still let some air in while also keeping you warm enough. I tried it on without first checking the price tag, my mistake, and left the shop empty handed. Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago. While on vacation with that same aunt in Italy my mother was reminded of the poncho and spotted this beauty, which she brought home for me as a souvenir. 

It seems I was correct in my assumption that a poncho would be a great alternative for those days where it's just not quite cold enough for a jacket. Yesterday I threw it on over a long sleeved gray sweater and olive pants. I gathered it up like a scarf when I went down into the subway and just as easily spread it back over my shoulders when I emerged from the train. A perfect compromise.

    I particularly love this poncho. I have such positive associations with ponchos because of one outfit I saw however long ago and now I can add this to my list of I-wish-I-could-pull-that-off outfits! You look lovely!

  15. Great look on you. You took a very casual look and just by adding the cap, you elevated the look to being a bit more chic & pulled together. I like what you've done here.

  29. So I've been loving the look of a camel Cashmere Ponchos for fall, and came across this one on Pinterest. After some sticker shock, I went on the hunt for a similar poncho for less.Unfortunately, I wasn't able to find one that I really liked, so I decided I would take the plunge and try to make one myself.
