Little Grey Riding Hood

Denim: F21, Booties: Rag & Bone, Bracelet: Chan Luu

Look ma, no hands. Or arms.
This Soft Joie thermal sweatshirt poncho is the epitome of a throw on. It is so comfortable that I want to sleep in it, but I won't because I would probably choke on the hood. "Death by poncho" sure sounds like a chic way to go, though. 
It's a great piece because its thin enough to wear from season to season in place of a standard sweatshirt. In the words of Rachel Zoe, you get more mileage out of a piece when its more transitional, and this is always an important factor in wardrobe selections. When the days are cooler, I'll layer underneath it, but on warmer days just a sheer tank will suffice. I can't wait to wear it while traveling, I feel like it would thrive in that environment (yes, I am referring to the poncho as I would a child). Breathable, lightweight, packable, and equipped with a hood to separate yourself from the stranger beside you, or simple to save your head from touching the dreaded airplane headrest, I couldn't think of anything more functional.
Anyway, right now I'm wearing the sweatshirt with my peacock-colored denim for fall. I saw this color originally on a pair of Rag & Bone and J Brand jeans. I didn't necessarily want to invest in crayola-colored denim, however, so I sought to find their match for around a 12th of the price. Voila.
