How to Look Good while being Lazy

You have seen me touch upon capes, ponchos and wraps more times than you can count this fall so I won't bore you with my obsession. What I will do is show you how a casual brunch outfit made the blog worthy cut. Scroll down for my effortless lazy ready-to-eat look.

how to style a poncho

The ingredients to being chic and ready-to-eat any day of the week.

1- Pair of stretch pants. I prefer ponte bottoms to leggings. Shows you put some effort to it, while you really haven't.

2- A basic tshirt.  During these cold weather months, ideal for layering to keep warm.

3- Poncho/Cape. Conceals belly protrusion after meal consumption, provides warmth and let's face it- hella cute.

4-Pair of cute flats. Opt for a graphic print or metallic pair for visual interest.

5- A Chic hat. Whether it be a fedora or knit cap, it's the ultimate don't feel like doing my hair answer.

Sweater Dress

Cold weather months are for wool hats and cozy knits.  Whether it's cashmere cardigans, cozy hoodies or cable knit sweaters, you are sure to find one that speaks to you since they come in various prints and colors.  This particular knit is actually a turtleneck sweater but it works as a dress for me since it's oversize and I'm short. The only negative is that it gives me absolutely no shape whatsoever. My hips and curves are non-existent but I'm totally okay with that because it definitely kept me warm and allowed me to not have to layer on my heavy coat.

Cozy and Chic

It's gotten quite chilly here in NYC. One day it's high 50's and the next day, we're battling gusty 17 degree winds. It's perfect weather for layering wraps and blanket scarves like this colorblock (under $12!) and oversize plaid version atop jackets.  It's ideal for staying both cozy and chic simultaneously. Speaking of staying warm, can't forget about your head! How cute is my fur pom-pom felt cap

I wore this look for my daughter's soccer game last weekend. It's a pretty casual look-jeans and a tshirt but by accessorizing with my fur ball felt capscarf and heels, I managed to bring it up a notch.

How adorable are my Jordache jeans? Initially, when I was contacted to review a pair, I was not very optimistic. The brand resonated with my childhood, being an 80s baby and all. Unbeknownst to me, the denim collection provides a myraid of colors, styles and cut more conducive to my size. Best part about it, it comes in at way under $20 and are found at Walmart.  

Green & Tobacco

Lately, I've been playing around with colors-seeing which shades pairs best with others.  One color duo I came across was tan and green.  Because the tan (whether brown, cognac, or caramel hues) grounds the green, it works for a visually appealing color block look.  Think nature-grass, trees, etc. Below I paired an earth-tone turtleneck with my thrifted maxi length skirt and the ultimate cape coat for work!

Style Tips
(1) For a more fitted and svelte shape, I decided to have my skirt taken in from the hips down to the hem by my tailor. 
(2) To wear it high-waisted and still be long enough to reach calves or ankle, I suggest choosing a longer length in skirt options.
