Hey everyone! How's your week coming along? This week's been pretty rough for me, so naturally I've been trying to keep busier than I already am with school/my internship/grad school applications by engaging in some pleasant distractions like blogging and Pinterest
"Don't lose hope. When you are down to nothing, God is up to something." 
"A river cuts through a rock not because of its power, but because of its persistence."  

On a non fashion-related note, if you or anyone needs it, I feel like these quotes could really lift your spirits like they did mine. :)

Anyway, thoughts on this poncho? This one and similar ones have been all over my Insta feed lately! Some of them can be quite pricey (think of those cashmere or wool ponchos...swoon), but this Old Navy one is such a steal, especially if you're not totally sold on wearing a poncho yet. Instead of wearing light-wash jeans, I tried to keep my jeans a little darker as to not separate my already short stature. In order to look taller (or just not look any shorter ;) ) and slimmer, try keeping your top and bottom pieces in a similar color family, or even trying a monochromatic look! I'm yet to go the monochromatic route, but maybe I'll feel risky this Christmas season and try it out as a party look or something. We'll see how wild I'm feeling. ;P

What about you, are you willing to try the poncho trend this season?! 

Thank you so much for reading, until next time! Xoxo
