Hi fancy friends!

I’m that girl that takes sweaters and jackets with me every time I go out of the house, even if it never leaves the car… Year round, true story! Hubby is even used to reminding me, “Don’t forget a sweater,” and to turn off the hair iron (but that’s a whole other blog post). He knows me so well, and if there’s one thing that I hate the most in this life it’s to be cold. I’d rather sweat my heart out than spend a minute being cold. Hence, why I love Miami. I’m a tropical girl! I love visiting cooler places, but have to be very well prepared. I remember traveling to NYC, and once we arrived, the weather was so cold that we went back to the hotel room and stayed there for the rest of the night and admired the city form the window. I take sweaters to the beach and on the boat so you can only imagine whet fall and winter look like for me. Ponchos, blanket scarves and oversized cardigans are my FAVES for this time of year. They are so easy to carry and your best friend for travelling. They can be used as blanket, pillow and look stylish at the same time.

This generously sized poncho from Old Navy is perfect for windy and chilly weather. You can throw it over your shoulder and instantly adds that fall cozy feel to your look. Michael and I take Penelope to play at the park by our house every Saturday afternoon and just let her run around. It’s always so much fun to see her out and about and it’s so mentally healing to disconnect for half an hour and do what we do best… Enjoy each other’s company.

Penelope aka “Fancy P” is already 6 months old. She weighs about 3 pounds and is the most playful fur ball ever. Michael and I really contemplated getting another dog (read more about Penelope here).  We felt so free not having a dog and being able to just pack and go, but now we couldn’t be happier with her. We are enjoying her so much that I’m having doggy fever and want another one. I keep catching myself looking at miniature King Charles Cavaliers and miniature Cocker Spaniels. No decisions have been made yet. LOL.

Thank you for stopping and till next time. Stay chic!

I’ve been bundled up all weekend with this gorgeous blanket scarf! I confess, oversized scarves have been my fall obsession and I can’t help it if it’s carried through winter. I picked this one up from Zara a few weeks back and it’s so cozy, comfy, chic and such a versatile piece to have in your fall wardrobe. Easy to throw it over your shoulders and worn as a poncho or wrapped around your neck for a tighter fit. I think we all need a blanket scarf in our lives.

If this post has inspired you to shop a little for your own blanket scarf especially since oversized pieces are back in a big way this year, here are a few of my faves…
