Jacket? Vintage Pants? Joe Fresh (can't find them online and they are quite awesome)
  Pumps? Ralph Lauren (hereHat? Vintage Purse and belt? Thrifted

When I first saw this plaid knit goodness, I thought it was a blanket. Then I picked it up and judged it by the size and assumed it was a poncho. I saw that there was a split in the middle with an edge stitch and thought maybe this was a botched attempt at fixing a ripped poncho. This really makes no sense when I think about it but that is what flitted through my brain for a second there.
Finally I realized it was a sort of shawl and put it on properly. To give it some shape, I first looped the belt around the front and let the back free but then I thought if I looped the belt around the back of the shawl, it would look like a jacket from the back. I was really impressed with my own ingenuity. Until a few hours later when I noticed there was a button and a loop on the back pieces and I was wearing it exactly how it was meant to be worn. I am not such a trailblazer after all...
Other things I am not?

I'm with you on loving ponchos this time of the year, even if they aren't necessarily considered the most fashionable items. Love the blue coloring of yours. - Katy

I have bought that type of split poncho in Mexico before. I didn't think to belt it like that...mine didn't have a button and loop to clue me in either. :o)
