Black & White Poncho

Posted on: January 24, 2014

Today Would have Been a Great Day to Hibernate!  

We are not use to temps this cold…


I had to run to the grocery store, so used it as a great reason to debut my recently purchase poncho via Ebay…


Layering was the theme of the day, as I am wearing a long sleeved t-shirt under the white cable knit sweater and fleece leggings underneath my dark wash jeggings… For added warmth my Issac Mizraahi boots are fur lined and I chose the lace fedora and my Aigner leather gloves…


To further support the edgy vibe I addded my white sunglasses that I purchased last year on my Cayman Islands trip.


Happiness levels are very high with this outfit as it lifts my both my edgy and boho sides! 

I really love black and white outfits..

I have so many colored bottoms that are itchng to get paired with this poncho and I will most certainly indulge them…

Dear Readers, today my kids slept most of their second Snow Day, not getting up until after 2pm!  Tomorrow the schools are on a two hour delay… Since my son goes in two hours late half the school days , he won’t be going in until 10 am…. and has his final exam for  his semester class…. Friday was a scheduled day off for the kids to serve as a teacher only day at the end of the semester, so they’ve made up one of their snow days already…They are saying there is another snow storm heading our way possibly this weekend… this really isn’t good news for an area that doesn’t have the ability to plow anything other than the main streets….


I am grateful for Ebay and that someone no longer wanted this incredible poncho!  

I am grateful to have a fireplace and the fun we all share in building fires and keeping them going all day!

I am grateful that our grocery store got in more wood today, as they were out last night,….

I am grateful to my 18 year old son for braving the cold to take my photos today! 

I am grateful to my youngest for bringing me ice when I banged my knee (pretty hard, going over the gate that keeps the dog out of my kitchen ) on my husband’s weight stand….

That is a cheerful poncho. Ouch to the knee… I had to laugh at your subtle mention of the “culprits” 🙂

Ooooh, I love the poncho! Another snow “cold” day for us here in northern Ohio, -25 with wind chill. Too bad my husband has to work outside in this. I’m always banging my knees on something so I know how painful that is.

Feeling so bad for your dear husband for working outside in those temps!!!!

Thank you. He’s a mailman, and they have to work, no matter the weather. Snow is coming tonight into tomorrow with wind gusts at 50 mph.

I actually commented to my kids about feeling for our mailman during this extreme cold!

Love the poncho. I always loved them because if I didn’t feel thin or pretty I could always “hide” under it but still look cute 🙂

Yes, poncho’s are very forgiving!!!! With skinnis being so popular, looser tops are necessary so why not a poncho!

I have never been a fan of ponchos but you are rockin in Tracey! Looks great… Have a fab weekend!

I think you either like them or you don’t…. thanks for commenting…

Love this black and white outfit… You look great! We are in upper GA and it is 10 degrees right now…. We live in a log cabin, and so far for today it has gotten up to 55 inside the house… Believe me, I am layered up… I feel like the little kid from Christmas Story…Have a great weekend!

I hope you have a fireplace to huddle near!

No, no fireplace. Hoping for a new gas heating unit soon. We just had new windows and duct work done before Christmas so it is actually warmer than it usually is. It usually isn’t this cold for this long .I do have a large collection of blankets and quilts though.

Our heat is out too…we are using electric heaters in every room …..some are great at 68, while main room is 59 but fireplace added in brings it to 64….. layering up is still necessary, but yours is worse…

LOVE this black/white outfit Tracey. That poncho is awesome. The leather gloves and boots look really great with it too. This is one of my very favorites on you.

Thank you, I am not much for full repeats on outfits, but this one is definitley worth it and will see the light of day again or even date night to the movies!!!
