Although I love being stylish, I’m at that age where staying warm matters a lot more versus being cold and trendy haha. The biggest challenge for me is fall and winter because of all the layers one has to wear. However, when I found this red poncho from Express, I immediately felt like I defeated my challenge. If you live in a chilly/cold place like Chicago, you must get this! I love that not only is it soft and warm but also very chic. Every time I wear this, I always feel like I’m wrapped up in a blanket.

There are many ways to wear this poncho but I decided to make it into a cardigan for this look. To do so, incorporate a belt around the waist. I went with this gold belt for a pop within my ensemble.

Since I styled my poncho with a gold belt, I decided to accessorize the rest of the look with gold. I found this cool ring + chain from Charlotte Russe. It’s the perfect signature piece that’s not too noisy for this look.

It wouldn’t be a fall look without a pair of boots. Because I’m wearing a bold color, I felt that this neutral gray was the best way to go. It’s also a great contrast color for the accessories 😉
