Beth's poncho top she made in March for her MAGAM garment and had purchased this very sheer, very see-through fabric from Wal-Mart with that top in mind. With recent temps in the hot mid-80s, I thought a floaty poncho top coupled with a tank or cami underneath would be a perfect birthday outfit. Then, how dare a cold front move in the day before my birthday bringing cold and dreary rain coupled with 15 degrees below normal temps. Thankfully, and gratefully, my birthday dawned a gorgeous blue-sky sunny day, though breezy, chilly and in the mid-50sF, so I paired this top with my long-sleeve Alabama Chanin inspired top underneath, and my brown NL6216 pants. I wore my poncho coat too, and felt quite special as my sweet husband took the day off to spend with me in our local bigger town of Greenville, South Carolina eating out and enjoying a 'city' day.
