Fall is finally here! The leaves are starting to change and fall from the trees. Everywhere you look you see something flavored with pumpkin. Pumpkin spice coffee, ice cream, pies, creamer, and even cereal are all hitting the shelves. Halloween candy has already been in the stores and the candy corn is calling my name. Lol! I used to keep large jars of that on my dining room table but I can’t seem to resist it. Now, I try to keep pumpkins and gourds on my table instead. For some reason, those don’t seem to tempt me to eat them. Lol! I love how cool and crisp the mornings are getting. I have already started to pull out sweaters and jackets from my fall and winter closets but you have to be careful that you don’t wear something too hot. You have to layer or pick lightweight items to wear in order to not burn up as the day warms up. I have become particularly fond of ponchos this season. This is the second one that I have gotten and I love them because they offer warmth without burning me up. This poncho is called the Tempo Paris Star Poncho and here is a close up of the star design. You can see how the design is actually embedded in the weave of the sweater and is raised to create the effect. I love that the sweater is neutral and that the design isn’t a different color. When I first saw the sweater poncho on the website I was afraid that it might be scratchy. The poncho looked like wool and the website didn’t specify the materials, but I took a chance that it would be soft. I am so glad that I did because this is amazingly soft. I thought it was cashmere when I first opened it up and I had to look at the tag to see what it was made from. I found out it was 50% Viscose, 30% Nylon, and 20% Polyester and that one size fits all. I put it on and had Joe feel of it too so that I could see what he would say. I had to laugh when he said, “oooh, that feels nice. Is it cashmere?” Lol! I told him no and what it was made from. All he had to say then is, “what is Viscose?” There is a long scientific explanation of what Viscose is but the easiest explanation is that it is Rayon. If you are ready to start wearing ankle boots, carve pumpkins, stock up on Halloween candy, and watch football games, then you need to also check out this poncho from the Purple Poppy. Joe added that if you are from Texas or are a Cowboy’s football fan, that you needed this poncho. I love it when he tries to help me with my blog. Lol! I say that you will be surprised at how affordable this poncho is especially since it is so nice and luxurious.
