WIW Little Orphan Orange and Poncho Punch

Fall should be perfect poncho weather, right? Except when it's the Bay Area and it's hotter now than it was in summer! (I wore my ponchos with jeans and boots since I don't have any cords.) I keep getting faked out by the cold and fog in the mornings so I think it's finally time to pull out the sweaters, but then when I drive down the hill and the fog burns off it's 80 degrees and I'm having a heat stroke in my poncho. The pics certainly look very autumnal (and I got lots of random compliments on the ponchos and boots), but I was sweltering! I finally wised up and wore shorts today!
PS Did anyone else grow up eating Otter Pops? (Otherwise you might not understand the title).
PPS Bonus pics of kids at the park in case anyone needs a little dose of cuteness. 5 year old DS1 was my fashion photographer (9/10).

1. Free People pumpkin poncho, Vince tee, AG skinny jeans, Frye Melissa lace up boots. Fossil floral satchel. Stella and Dot jewelry.
4. Anthro purple poncho, Missoni Target blouse, AG jeans, Frye boots, Fossil satchel.
15. Everlane T, Banana Republic shorts, MZ Wallace satchel, Mulo koi loafers.

    The orange poncho in particular at really lovely and looks great on you. Thanks for sharing the pics of you little cuties;)

    The orange poncho is killer! Love the big cowl, and is so rich styled with the cognac boots! Wow, your kindergarten is pretty active, love!:-)

    omg, the kiddos are getting big! Love all of the poncho and boots outfit. I think they are stellar minus the cords. Gorgeous colors and great wool-y texture! YLF!

    I'm GLAD you're wearing these fun ponchos again, Natalie. You look sensational in them.

    You have the CUTEST kids. My word.

    I especially love the orange poncho -- I never would have thought orange was one of your colors before, but it looks great here.

    And what is an otter pop?

  • MaryA replied 8 years ago

    Love the orange poncho! It's a great color on you and is wonderfully wooly without being overwhelming.

  • replied 8 years ago

    Your kids are too CUTE! They look spritely too. It looks like a great day for a family outing in the woods.

    I love the pumpkin outfit. The colour is great on you, and all the elements - bag, watch, boots, poncho - work so well together!

    Yay Otter pops and kids and heat!  You look great.

  • Ginger replied 8 years ago

    These are great outfits! Lots of layers and interesting things going on. Too bad the weather didn't cooperate. That can be so disconcerting. But shorts are awesome, too.

    And wow - those really ARE cute kids! I've been around kids a lot and I don't fall for all of them. But yours really are darling. I love #14!

  • celia replied 8 years ago

    So good to see photos of those wonderful kids :)
    You wear ponchos beautifully. I get that the weather keeps confusing you but you look fab.

  • Sara L. replied 8 years ago

    Your ponchos are in great colors. To bad the weather is so warm. It's been unseasonably warm here too and I'm still wearing summer outfits.

  • LACeleste replied 8 years ago

    Looking GREAT Natalie and really enjoyed your super cute kids!

  • Firecracker (Sharan) replied 8 years ago

    Wow, you look fantastic in these outfits--both the ponchos and shorts. I especially like the symmetry of the orange poncho. Your kids are so adorable, and having seen them, I know they are just as cute, if not moreso (if possible) in real life.

    Oh, and thanks for letting me in on the Otter Pop reference. I was lost--didn't grow up with them. I think my husband did, though.

  • Karie replied 8 years ago

    I love the color of that orange poncho. Your kids are super cute!

  • deb replied 8 years ago

    Love the poncho! And the kids, so big.

  • Debbie replied 8 years ago

    Love the ponchos and understand the weather dilemma too well. The kids are adorable.

  • rachylou replied 8 years ago

    Love the orange and the face in the tree!

  • CocoLion replied 8 years ago

    I remember this poncho from a few years ago and glad to see it's so very on trend this year.  Isn't it great to see our decisions validated.  You look lovely and especially great in shorts.

  • Maneera replied 8 years ago

    That's a real cute poncho in #1! But I also love the polished style of #4.

    But your cuties steal the show, Natalie. All 3 of them have such fun, genuine expressions! And the youngest one has 'naughty' written all over his face :D

  • Gidge replied 8 years ago

    I really like the bag. It looks durable and the leather looks rich. I have a handmade kilim "carpet bag" that is a similar concept, but less leather.

  • Colette replied 8 years ago

    Fabulous ponchos! You wear them well. But those three little ones are adorable. Looks like you had a lot of fun.
