Ponchos and Pullovers 

Last night I attended a three course dinner, espresso, and wine tasting event at Nespresso and the event also featured special guest Ted Allen from the Food Network show Chopped.  Stay tuned over the next few days for details and pictures from this fun event.

The outfit I wore to the event was inspired by a styling challenge with the fabulous and stylish Kristin of Bon Bon Rose Girls.  Each of us decided to style an outfit using either a poncho or pullover sweater.  I went for a simple all black monochromatic look and paired up a cashmere pullover with cropped pants.  Head over to Bon Bon Rose Girls to see Kristin style’n in a lovely camel colored vintage poncho.

Ann Taylor cashmere pullover (40%off), J.Crew cropped pants, Pour La Victoire platform sandals (also seen here), H&M clutch, and Alexandra’s Inspirations bracelet
