poncho: thrifted: similar / similar
jeans: Old Navy: exact
shoes: Target: exact / similar (and I might like these more!)
bracelet: Forever 21: similar (pretty gold version)

I wore this to work on a Friday, and I know it's been at least a little more than 2 weeks ago because I haven't worked the past two Fridays! Such a wonderful feeling that I'm sad I'll miss out on it this Friday too. :) This poncho is one that I thrifted at least a year ago and have never worn. Do you ever buy something because you think it'll be great, then never wear it? Yeah, me too. But I tried to filter out a lot of that stuff in the great closet(s) clean out that happened a couple of weeks ago. (See the result in one of the rooms here - I'm still really proud of myself!) I'm glad I finally found a use for this piece though. I try to be open minded about sizes when I'm shopping, especially at a thrift store, so this is plus size and I still bought it. I was hoping to go for a loose, flowy look when I bought it (I'm typically a size medium in tops, sometimes a large) then I maybe let the size psych me out a bit, but it's perfect for this stage of pregnancy when I need some extra room! 

Linking up for Monday Mingle...


  1. The poncho is such a cute addition to your summer wardrobe. Your belly looks cute in it now, but hopefully it's versatile enough to work when it gets bigger, too!

  2. It looks fantastic on you! And I really love the booties with this outfit!

  3. This looks so cute, who knew when you bought it how perfect it would be right now! I love it!!

  4. It's darling on you! I'm glad you re-found it!!

  5. That is the perfect pregnancy top! Who would have thought! I am loving looser fitting clothes these days - and that definitely wasn't my style before! Yay for being pregnant at the same time! I really wanted to say something before, and it was so hard not to!

  6. Okay, I LOVE how you look in this outfit, Jess! So put together! I'm not typically a fan of ponchos, but this one is REALLY fun, and I love the flowiness of it!!

  7. I only purchase from places with lenient or long return policies for that very reason- so many times I buy something and it doesn't work out. That's also why I don't take tags off until I'm ready to head out the door. but anyway, this poncho looks really cute on you!

  8. Your poncho is gorgeous and perfect for now. You are so polished chic here, Jess. =)

    Hope your pregnancy is going very smooth and you and baby boy are doing well. I haven't heard from you in a long time. Stop by sometime. <3 Ada.
