In Search of the Perfect Poncho

Hello, dear friends.  In my last post, I extolled on my penchant for ponchos to the point of tedium.  I have spent a few hours minutes researching the almighty poncho and decided since I was putting my valuable (?) time into the search, I might as well take you along on my poncho pilgrimage. 







Nordstrom

Love!

Gorgeous cashmere.  
Now I just have to sell Chili and Chowdah to afford it. 



Nordstroms

Another beauty.

Love the style of both of these.  As much as I love the winter white, I know if I wore it, the neckline would be covered with make up.

This is what I refer to as the "Call the Midwife" poncho.

This is another pretty cashmere poncho.  This is what I call the "I'm so bored being pretty" look.

Maybe too short for me because I require as much coverage as possible, but I like the style of this one.


Lovely Pepa

Oh to be young and skinny...


J Crew

Love the plaid.

Need your hubby to be able to pick you out in a crowd?

And last, but certainly not least, a theme poncho.




And if you can't find the perfect poncho, you can always check in your box of Christmas decorations.

Have a great weekend!
Until next time...

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.

  9. Ponchos never seem to go out of style - even the ones that look like capes! And of course, your tree skirt is the best!

  13. I haven't worn a poncho since the third grade but your photos have now made me crave one. Seriously, it is not cold enough here for poncho but I'm certain that I am going to become obsessed. Thanks a lot.

  14. The last poncho I wore was hand crocheted by my godmother...I think I was ten...I loved it...on that loving note I love the first one from Anne Taylor...I may purchase my first poncho 42 years after wearing my first poncho....On the Christmas decoration side ...I can hear Meredith Viera now introducing you in the "Skoncho"...a Christmas tree skirt and a fashion accessory. Start shopping now!

  21. I think you should try this sleeveless "poncho." I almost didn't recognize it online after trying it on in the store. It is MUCH longer in person and I'm about 5'2". I LOVED it, but haven't pulled the trigger yet . . .
