old and new













This knit poncho is one of my favorite layers and kind of perfect for this kind of fickle, "in between" weather. B's grandmother actually made this beautiful piece in the '70s. I wrote a little more about it here.

sunglasses from a random shop on U St. (similar here)
Ann Taylor button-down
knit poncho made by B's grandmother (current one here)
BCBG watch
Hermes, Madewell, Kenneth Jay Lane, and Amrita Singh bangles
1920s dinner ring (a very nice early Valentine's Day gift from B)
J Brand jeans (old style, newer here)
Zara shoes (fun splurge pair here)
Lamarthe purse
nails in Illamasqua 'Creator'

Shop the look!

This poncho is the business. And it is made even more amazing since your grandmother knitted it. I love the pieces that I have that my grandmother made for me. This is so beautiful--the colors, the patterns, the length, the knit--and I love it with the flared jeans and cat eye shades. Favorite look of yours ever.

That poncho is so '70s and I love it. The blues and greens are perfection. Along with your flare jeans, it's a perfect match! x

OH wow, that poncho is gorgeous! I love pieces like this because they are unique and made with love. I actually learned to crochet from my grandma.

Oh, that's so neat how your grandmother made that poncho! It does look rather sturdy and that's fabulous that it's held up for so long since it's such a lovely, dainty piece! <3
