Poncho Weather is Here!!

Jumping for joy -- sweater weather has arrived!!
Morning temps in the 40s this week!
Now if only I was a bit more organized, I would have all
our fall gear ready to wear!

Maddy wearing a poncho- October, 2015
Sooooo, while I'm trying to dig out our fall sweaters and
long-sleeve tops, I've been 
looking at some of my favorite sweater ponchos on-line and
thinking about doing a little retail therapy!

Raise your hand if you love a good poncho too!

Besides being so adorable, they cover all kinds of flaws for
middle-aged Moms like me!
Love how the cowl neck ponchos do the work of scarves and cover
up my neck -- no need
for a neck-lift when you've got a great cowl neck poncho!
Bonus -- ponchos are a long enough to cover the dreaded mid-area -- 
a saving grace for me when I don't want to squeeze into some of the
dreaded spanx!

And who doesn't love what I call the football blankie poncho!!
Ooooh -- I love her boots too!

Another one from Macy'

My favorite poncho is one in a blast from the past -- 
Miss Maddy at 6 years old!  
I'd like to tell you that I knit that poncho 
for her myself, but you know, I don't lie to my friends!
Enemies yes; friends no! 

Welcome Fall Temps -- 
now, show me your ponchos!  :)

I LOVE all your poncho pictures. I haven't owned one since I was a kid- and it was NOT as cute as Maddy's! :) We are just now, today, seeing fall temps. Slept with the window open last night and froze- I was in heaven!!! :) Happy fall!!

I LOVE ponchos! I have about 4 of them because they hide a multitude of sins. So sorry about your shiner. If you need a good make up, Jane Iredale has one that covers everything. I found it after I sported 2 shiners after I fell down my sister's stairs. Also, there is an ointment that helps with the bruising. Can't remember the name but your pharmacist can tell you. Feel better soon. Maddie looks much cuter in her poncho than me.

I love them too! You've got me convinced I need to dig out the fall/winter clothes tomorrow. I'm loving these lower temps too! Hooray for fall!
