Woolovers - Keeping Cosy With This Pure Lambswool Poncho

So.. The low temperatures have finally hit us. I've been housesitting for my son for the past week in Essex while he sun's himself in Costa Rica. I was mighty pleased that I packed this poncho to wear. The timing couldn't be more perfect. 


This Burgundy and Cream Poncho from Woolovers is so thick and warm, even in the minus temperature and the wind doesn't penetrate at all. Pure cosiness!


I am trying to get a sophisticated shot of me in this much-needed hat! The flurries of snow are starting to fall. Me and hat's just don't get on. I wish we did, I've yet to find the perfect one. 




This is my third item to review for Woolovers and I can honestly say this is a website that you must visit. The quality is exceptional and each item I have tried I have loved. There is so much choice and every blend of wool is available.


I have chosen to wear the Poncho with my faux leather trousers (there's an extra layer in the form of tights underneath!) and a contrasting Berry coloured polo neck. Brown boots and a sad attempt with this Black felt hat!



If you really like this Poncho, your luck's in! It's now in sale at £30.00 I have to say that's a bargain for this. It's really weighty and you know you're wearing a good warm piece of outerwear. You can find it here



I will be sharing all three of my looks from Woolovers So I hope you pop by for that. 
XO Laurie

  42. Really like this poncho, it looks warm, cozy and fashionable. My favorite picture is the one of you in the chair, it looks like a magazine shot. I must state that you look great in shades of purple, looks great with your skin and hair color. And although you may not feel that the hat is right for you it is a great piece to have in a photo!

  46. Please don't take offence, but I would much rather be sunning myself in Costa Rica than house sitting in Essex! Your son is very lucky. The outfit looks great though. On the bright side, wool like that would not be suitable for Costa Rica. Pen x #sharethejoylinky (PS. sorry, wrong hashtag before).
