Jack striped poncho (also in blue), BlankNYC denim, Steve Madden heels, GiGi New York clutch, Elizabeth and James sunnies c/o Ditto, diamond pendant

Happy Wednesday! March is proving to be a busy month - a lot going on both at work and at home. This month is definitely already full of madness with planning a couple of events for work plus a few great social things coming up as well as a few fun collaborations for the blog, but all the busyness is full of positives, so no complaints here! I snagged this Jack by BB Dakota poncho/wrap a couple of weeks ago and though I loved it in the store, I couldn't decide how I felt about it when I got home. But now that I've paired it with new favorite heels for spring, I've decided I love it!

I feel like I haven't truly worn a poncho in years -- though this is more like a sweater wrap -- but as I was putting in on the other day, I was instantly taken back to 8th grade when I had this baby pink poncho (the kind that slips over your head) that I wore repeatedly - you know you had one too. Even with today's trend in the style, I don't think this one would've cut it. But hey - I loved it. 

I've posted about Ditto in the past, but it's the perfect subscription for those who love sunglasses but don't want to splurge on a new designer pair every single month. By signing up, you receive a pair delivered to your door until you decide you want to switch them out. For the last month, I've been enjoying the Elizabeth & James Fairfax - a fun pair that I wouldn't necessarily pick out if I was buying them for long term but great to try for a few weeks! If you enter the code SOUTHERNSTYLEBLOG, you can try Ditto for free!

  12. I love the poncho on you! The stripes are great, and it looks like it is a little lighter weight than some which means it will be a nice transition piece. I know what you mean though, I always love them on others and feel like they look bad on me. Great accessories!

  15. Love this outfit so much!! I prefer ponchos that are that style too, they are less overwhelming on people. I also have a plaid poncho that you pull over your head but its cute. I did have this turquoise BCBG one when I was in my early twenties and I wore it all of the time. It was kind of ugly though haha. Anyway, I hope that you had a great day today and enjoy your evening! :-)
