As today is the first day of winter (in Catherine’s world) I thought I’d bring you a classic winter piece: a cashmere poncho, in the most stunning purple-aubergine colour. It’s a really practical design as well as being gorgeous – it has ribbed sleeves so it’s like wearing a huge sweater… it hangs beautifully, and no cold arms. Believe me when I say this is cashmere at its softest and finest.
Like it? Well I’m so pleased to tell you you could win a poncho like this (as well as the scarf I’m wearing) in your choice of colour! Tomorrow I’ll be hosting a giveaway together with British label Cashmere & Cotton for you to win the same rib sleeve poncho and scarf. The scarf is also a wrap and can be worn lots of different ways, with the poncho or by itself. So don’t miss it, details tomorrow.
I wore the poncho over the weekend with my gold-coloured brocade jeans and leopard print trilby, which complemented the taupe suede booties beautifully. It was a chilly but beautiful sunny day; you can see the light of the setting sun in the background of the photos… perfect weather for this outfit. To top it off both the patchwork bag and funky Wolf & Moon earrings picked out the purple and taupe colours – it seems a pretty basic outfit at first but the little details are subtle and add a special something to the poncho/scarf combination without detracting from its cashmere gorgeousness.
Are you a poncho fan? Or a cashmere fan – or both (like me)? Do share in the comments, and tell me whether you’ll be back for the giveaway, won’t you 🙂
P.S. There’s a couple of days left to vote for me in the UK Blog Awards (I’m entered in the Retail & Fashion category) – your vote would mean so much to me, it closes Wednesday 3rd December. It’s very quick and easy… Thank you so much!!
