This week, school started and besides getting used to the drop-off and pick-up routine, I’m gravitating to one piece style solutions, a lá The Poncho. It’s like a stylish hug on a crisp morning. No seriously, and don’t forget the panama hat to hide the inevitable 8am bed head. Score! I love the Free People line because it’s the drama of bold patterns and colors but without the drama of looking like your neighbor. If you’re not fortunate enough to have a Free People store by you, Nordstrom carries it all. From dresses to ponchos to vegan leather jackets and this chambray (that’s next on my list), it’s a one-stop-shop at Nordstrom and I get excited just thinking about it. I love fall. And thanks to this easy poncho, you’ll be dressed faster than it takes your toddler to find his shoes. That’s a win in my book.
