Winterizing Summer Dress with a Poncho

Posted on: February 25, 2015

Today is day 3 of my week of skirts and dresses. 

I already winterized with a faux leather moto and a statement cardigan, 

so for today I opted for my prize purchase from my Ireland trip…

My Aran blue poncho and my blue boots also from the Ireland trip..

These pictures are not the best because we had snowfall beginning early afternoon.  

This is a  thrifted floral print dress and it’s the first time I’ve worn it.

The best part of this outfit other than the fun of wearing my Aran poncho, 

is that I was actually very warm…

I began this look with a long sleeved wicking work out top as an added layer. 

I hate being cold and my Old Navy chambray top was not heavy enough for the job.. 

With the addition of fleece tights, hat and gloves, I was warm head to toe…

I keep picturing this with my red poncho

and really am going to have to try that soon…

 Dear Readers No one here is thrilled about the additional snow due to the

4 days of no school last week from the first one of the season…

We are only expecting an inch or two , but that’s enough with the lack of 

equipment where snowfall is not a given each year, to cause closings, delays and accidents. 

I personally was hoping for no snow when my daughter arrives from Boston on Friday, but with today’s few inches and another 3 to 8 inches on Thursday, I guess that’s not in the cards..

Regardless our snow will be a lot less and our temperatures warmer for her 9 days here.  

Gratitude

I am grateful for the snow, it really is fun since it doesn’t happen all the time, in chatting with my friend over the last snow fall, she mentioned that when we get it , it’s an event and that is very true.  

I am grateful that my homeschooler went to his private bowling lesson today as last week it was cancelled due to the snow.

I am grateful that I chose to style dresses and skirts this week because it is fun and a lift to my spirit. 

I am grateful for the rain and warmer temperatures for at least one day and that the previous snow (really a sheet of ice)  melted.

Nice poncho. I love this kind of knitwear.

Thank you! The Aran sweaters are a classic and I knew that would be my one purchase when going to Ireland..
