Last weekend we went to Mendocino and my new orange Free People sweater poncho from Nordstrom got quite a workout! It's the perfect color for fall and for visiting the pumpkin patch (although it was really hot at the pumpkin patch so I had to take the poncho off). But it was just the right warmth for the overcast slightly chilly Mendo mornings. I wore it over a thin long sleeved brown knit top from Anthro, Gap Always skinny jeans, and La Canadienne brown suede knee high boots. I carried my floral velvet and leather vintage re-issue Fossil bag everywhere and I love how it has a tiny bit of orange to match the poncho. Before I bought it, I worried that it would be hard to match with my clothes because of the crazy pattern and colors, but the olive, cream, orange, teal & brown seem to go with all my fall clothes! Love it. We stayed at the Stanford Inn, and the kids had fun looking at the llamas, horses and miniature donkeys that live there at the hotel. These pics were taken in the garden and walking along the path to our cottage. Lots of fun!
And here's one more pic of my MOTG outfit for today...my first time wearing the black plaid Halogen zippered peacoat that I posted on a keep or return earlier and that Angie said was her absolute favorite item I've worn so far. So obviously I had to keep it! I was worried it might be too tight so I tried a medium but that was too big, so I kept the small and it actually fits fine. I paired it with a sleeveless rust red mock turtleneck top, AG skinny jeans, and my Chie Mihara rust suede sandals. We went to another pumpkin patch today and it was super hot so I took off the jacket and switched out my heels for some silver ballet flats instead.
(I'm trying to be more descriptive of my looks for Michelle's benefit, so sorry if my description seems too obvious!)
