Jersey Girl, Texan Heart: Alpaca and Belted

Alpaca and Belted

4:00 AM

Poncho:  Handmade Alpaca (Ewa Bazaar) // Boots:  Dolce Vita (Lord and Taylor)

No, you’re not going crazy, this is an old outfit post (my hair gives it away) that I completely forgot to upload.  So I decided that today was the day to show everyone.  As most of you know, I LOVE PONCHOS.  It’s like wearing a giant blanket, but it’s acceptable to wear it.  It’s great for this time of year because it’s cold, and I’m the first to admit I’ve totally put on some holiday weight.  I’m sorry, but if my mom puts homemade Polish food in front of me I’m not going to have ANY self control.  Yes, we eat the typical pierogi, along with so many other things but everything is homemade and is so tastey.  Ok, now I’m making myself hungry and I’m trying to refrain from eating a lot now that I don’t have the “but it’s the holidays” excuse.  Keyword, trying.

I kept this outfit pretty simple.  I belted it and then wanted to show all of you what it looks like without the belt as well.  Either way works for me but I haven’t seen many people belt a poncho so I figured I’d try it.  I feel like scarves are some of the absolute best accessories.  You can tie them so many different ways and you can use them for warmth (the bigger blanket scarves) or just as an accessory.  Everyone who knows me, knows that I love scarves and I have a very decent amount of all different types of scarves in my closet.  I definitely have more scarves than jewelry.  Is that bad?

Oh, and I hope everyone had a good new year, I keep forgetting we are already in 2015!  I also wanted to take the time to apologize for being so quiet lately.  I know how so many of you have been commenting and I’ve been extremely bad with commenting back so I want to greatly apologize.  These holidays have been all over the place and crazy busy!  Hopefully within the next week my commenting will go back to normal.  I also don’t even read most of my comments until a few days later, that’s how you know I’m crazy busy.  I really truly do appreciate all of your bearing with me!
