Be Calm and Poncho

Fall outfit

Happy Monday!! Cooler weather is finally upon us and I am SO excited! One of my favorites items for Fall and Winter are ponchos and capes. Funny story, I asked my sister if she knew the difference between ponchos and capes. Her response was “Ponchos are the Mexican capes?” Haha, we both laughed  for quite a bit on that one. But in all seriousness, a cape is made out of a circle and a poncho is made out of rectangle.

I absolutely love this cape and the ombre color, the deep plum and blue look SO good together. For this look I wanted to keep my outfit casual and went for a denim on denim look to really make the accessories and shoes stand out.  I couldn’t resist adding the leopard shoes because lets face it, leopard is now a neutral, am I right or #amiright?

Today I will be pinning my favorite looks with ponchos and capes on Pinterest! Come follow along @uptownwithellyb

May your Monday be short and your coffee strong!
