Easy fashion with poncho

We’re not always about the razzle dazzle, and on days when we want to be low key… we pull out the poncho!

Now, this should not be confused with the very scary puke green one that was given as a gift (if you recall my story meeting actor Aron Ekchart in it).. and it ended up being used as a nursing cover up.

This my friends, is one that we happened upon while shopping downtown (in Chicago) a few months ago.

There was a pop up shop for local designer Heidi Hess and they were selling the “hoodie ponch”.


We fell in love with it on site. It’s really versatile… and for example you can take the extra fabric that’s folded on the top and put it on your head like a hood. There are so many ways to style it, including with a belt if you prefer.

Until we find the perfect belt though, we will just wear it like the big comfy blanket that it is lol.

Do you like ponchos? How would you style one?

    Zainab, thank you so much for your comment. It means a lot! I struggle all the time with whether I need to up my makeup game, even though I am not into that whole scene. So, I’m glad that you’re on the same page hehe 🙂

    You look beautiful and regal, very elegant. I appreciate that you are always natural and fresh-faced without tons of make-up as we see many hijabi do online. You are comfortable with who you are and you know what’s really important in life (not the physical) and that is an inspiration.
