I didn't think I would be pulling out my sweaters this early in November, but the weather yesterday was considered close to freezing, at least for my Texas blood. Okay, maybe I am being a little dramatic, but temps in the 50's call for sweaters, heated seats, knee boots and green chile chicken soup.

This stripe poncho from Wallis arrived several months ago. I have been tapping my toes for the days to get cool enough to wear it. It's probably one of the most comfortable things I have put on my body besides the fluffy blanket sitting on my couch. Actually, let's just go ahead and call this poncho a styilsh and wearable blanket. I even got the stone color one too. When you find something this good, I say get them in doubles, triples or even quadruples. You know that's how my mind works. Remember "the skirt of all skirts" post? Now you know why I put myself on a shopping ban that started last month. Sometimes I just can't control myself.
Speaking of shopping ban, I have to come clean with y'all. I bought these Fergalicious boots last week. I know! I know! Want to hear my crazy justification? Okay, here goes. Please no judging.
I was cleaning out my wallet, found a stash of cash and it dawned on me that it was from our trip to Mexico. It was money for the flea market. I planned on bringing back a few souvenirs, but everything was pretty junkie, so I didn't spend a dime except for a few tchotchkes for my girls.
Anyway, these boots were on crazy super sale. So, I took my Mexico souvenir money and bought them. I will always think of Mexico when I wear them. I can guarantee I will get more use out of them then some piece of pottery, necklace or shirt. Plus, technically zero money came out of our bank account. Purchase justified? I think so.
Back on the wagon I go. I am really going to try stay clean and straight the rest of the month, but Black Friday has me questioning myself. We will see.
Have a great weekend and don't forget about the Lilac Bijoux giveaway going on. See you Monday!
