This is an outfit from my Instagram of an old favorite sweater from last year that popped back into stock. See my prior review here and post on how to style an oversized poncho!

And here is a recent try-on…I wear my long-sleeved striped tees to pieces so would love to find a dress version. I went up 2 sizes for this ASOS one but it was still a little snug for my liking these days – good for going out at night though or for those who like their pieces more form-fitting. Will be keeping my eyes peeled for a less “bodycon” version!

Lastly, signing off with this snap from the weekend. I’m not a big soaking bath person but it felt oh-so-good to take one after renovating our bathroom. The pink walls were an accident of sorts before we learned our lesson to always always test paint colors on the wall, in all lighting situations, versus just go off the swatch cards at the store. We were going for a light beige with a hint of blush, and were surprised with something a lot more feminine…Nick’s still cursing himself for being too lazy to test the color beforehand, but it’s been slowly growing on me : )

    Ann Taylor is currently one of my favourite stores. Went in this weekend. Didn't buy anything but I was able to kind of figure out what blazer size I was. I need some 🙂

    I can only imagine Nick being unhappy with that color, but embracing it in the end…I think the color is soft and soothing, and that wine glass is so cute!

    Hi Jean,

    I've never shopped at ASOS, but I think I remember reading from your previous posts that their clothes tend to run small? Can you confirm?

    Loved the poncho & striped dress!

    Hi Jean,

    I remember reading in your previous posts that ASOS tends to run small. Can you confirm? I normally wear a 0 or XS at LOFT, AT, BR and a 2 at H&M.; Thanks.

    What nail polish did you use on your hands? So Pretty!

  • Anonymous March 4, 2016 at 12:30 am

    What brand and shade of polish did you use on your hands on the first two pictures? Is it a different shade from what you used on your hands on the last pic? If so what shade is the third pic? Sorry for the detailed questions. I'm looking for a great neautral and I like the shades that you used you on your hands in all three pictures.

    What lipstick color are your wearing in the second picture?

  • Elyse QUast July 28, 2016 at 5:15 pm

    Do you have a suggestion for a similar/identical green poncho for fall, since this one is not in stock anymore?
