dress it up or dress it down: ponchos!


i took a week off but wanted to get back to the how to: dress it up or dress it down segment because i was having so much fun with it! so i received this stinkin' adorable poncho from windsor last week and i have been wanting one for a while now so i was pretty dang excited to wear it. well in st. george i had an outfit all planned for the day but wasn't quite sure what to wear at night to dress up a poncho... so here's what i did!
from day <--------------------- to --------------------------> night

it was pretty warm this last weekend down south, around mid 80's or so, so i knew i wanted to keep it casual, comfy and light during the day. the rolled up shorts are cute and comfy and perfect for warm weather! i also love this sandals with the studs and they keep it casual- i was especially excited to wear sandals for the first time this year (yay!)

triangle necklace: c/o windsor, stack rings: c/o windsor, pyramid ring: c/o windsor, knuckle ring: c/o stylelately


so for my night look, i didn't steer too far off of my first thought of what i liked with the poncho. i loved the white pants and these were a perfect fit! the zipper detail is always a favorite too. i used the same bag, but instead of wearing it like a messenger bag, i took off the strap and just used it as a clutch. paired with some simple heels, a little extra bling and red lips, and we were out on the town with the rest of those hip old retirees!! :)
