How to wear ponchos in the spring

We see ponchos more in the fall than in the spring, but they are a great staple to any wardrobe in the in-between seasons like spring or fall. It’s usually too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer for them, unless they are really lightweight. Here are some tips for wearing them in spring.

Gray and white colorblock poncho, White House Black Market, given to me; Velvet jeans, Ann Taylor Loft; Rose gold clutch, old, Marshall’s; Heart sunglasses, Ross; Chandelier earrings, old; Leopard print flats, Ross.

Lighten up the colors. Wear softer tones than you would in the fall.

Wear a sweater underneath for cooler weather. Lighten up what you wear underneath as the weather gets warmer.

Wear your poncho with a collared shirt. That wouldn’t work with the poncho I have in these shots because it has a big bulky collar, but it would work on some of my light weight ponchos.

Wear a poncho with skinny jeans for a casual look. 

Add a pop of color like these bright berry pink velvet pants from Ann Taylor Loft.

Stand amidst the flowers so you look very springy. Haha.

Wear a fluffy infinity scarf if your poncho doesn’t have a collar and it’s still cold outside.

Hook it over a finger and sling it over your shoulder if it gets too warm out.

Wear a belt over it. This only works if it’s a long poncho and works better if it’s not too thick and bulky.

Pair your poncho with leggings and boots. 

Just have fun with it!

Happy Palm Sunday everyone! Stay healthy. Stay safe. It’s a crazy world out there right now.

Greensleeves

What could be more seasonal than a sweater dress with greensleeves like the Christmas song, otherwise known as What Child is This? Paired with my winter leggings, also worn here. Some would say the leggings are Christmasy, but with snowflakes instead of Santas or Christmas trees, I would say they are just wintery. Good to wear all winter long! Which is better in my book than leggings that are limited to wear only after Thanksgiving until the end of December.

Also, not sure why I’m channeling my inner Mary Poppins in these photos with my umbrella up in the air. (I haven’t seen the new movie yet, but hope to some day.) Mostly I was trying to keep the rain off my head while still allowing you to see the fun colorful trees at Fanno Farms U-cut tree lot.

I kept driving by this lot on my way to set this fall. The colorful trees painted while still growing in the ground really caught my eye. So fun! I wanted to come back and do a photo shoot before the holiday was over. So this is where I was unconsciously-(ish) heading on a rainy day a few days ago. I had it in the back of my mind but couldn’t remember the name of it, or how far down the road it was, so if it was half-way back to Scio, I wouldn’t have kept going forever just to find it. I think…

I’m loving the puff sleeve trend that is in right now. So cute. This sweater dress had just a bit of puff sleeves Not too poofy, though. Just a little bit.

I hope you all are almost ready for Christmas. Less than one week now!
