PURPLE PONCHO

I know, I know, here I go again with a delightful poncho, but it's PURPLE, I mean a pretty purple, and I do not have much purple. Here's the story behind this one. My friend, Tami really loves wraps too and wanted one for Christmas. Our place of employment has a darling little boutique type gift shop called The Maple Corner and she told me she was loving their ponchos so I meandered on up there to find a reversible one in her favorite color...red!! As I was checking out, the manager asked me if I knew that came in other colors....as soon as I saw it, I knew the collection would grow...again, especially after she told me I could use my employee discount...SOLD!!! 



Just LOVE the back of these!!

Here is Tami's gorgeous red one.....

I love that so many ponchos pack such a pretty punch that you can just start with a simple canvas like leggings, boots and a long tee and the poncho does all the talking. This one actually has sleeve holes so it's a little more secure than just over the shoulders. 




How cute are these bow gloves from TJ Maxx?

Week is half over.....YAY!!

  3. I LOVE those bow gloves! I had a very similar pair years ago that I lost. Ugh, makes me wish I found that missing glove. They are kind of like socks and just go missing sometimes!
