My Other Plaid Poncho

* Note: I have been using the terms poncho and cape sort of interchangably. I understand they are different articles of clothing, but I am going to stick with my ignorant blurring of fashion lines for now…mostly for consistency in my posts.

I published a post 2 weeks ago about My Plaid Poncho which showcased my red and gray poncho from Old Navy. And I thought I was satisfied with owning only one plaid poncho…until I saw this gray and rust one in Target. And it was included in a 25% off all women’s clothing sale, so of course, I could not resist.

I was lazy and miserable today and was craving an easy comfortable outfit. These days are the ones when I pull out my trusty no-hiking-required Lauren Conrad leggings from Kohl’s. I was feeling kind of gray and my plaid poncho is gray, so my gray leggings were the obvious choice. I paired them with an oversized oatmeal colored cowl neck tunic sweater which has silvery flecks in it, gray boot socks, and gray suede knee high boots. One long silver tassel necklace completed my easy breezy poncho ensemble!

Poncho: Xhilaration for Target. I just bought this poncho/cape a few weeks ago and I cannot find it online anywhere to provide a link. But you can view the capes, ponchos, and wraps currently available at Target here.

Tunic: Women’s Plus Gold Leisure Tunic by Ava & Viv for Target.

Who else has succumbed to the plaid poncho craze and overindulged in multiple purchases? Or how about a solid colored poncho? I have one of those, too!

Keeping it on the edge,
