For the past three or four years I have worn this blue and gold poncho once a year to tailgating or homecoming. I bought it because it’s basically my college’s colors (blue & yellow) and because wearing a poncho is kind of the socially expectable version of wearing a blanket in public (it gets cold in the Mid-West, okay).
However, it’s a bit big for my 4’9″ frame so it’s taken me a while to blog an outfit post with it. I try and compensate this by my styling and pretty much wear a long necklace, dark sweatshirt (I switch between black and dark grey), black leggings, black otk socks, and black boots. Basically, I do what I can to visually slim myself under the poncho without creating too much bulk while still keeping warm on a cool fall afternoon. If I had a poncho in better proportion to my high I’d love to style it with a felt hat and otk boots, but for now I’ve got this. 😅
