Bloggers Who Budget: Winter For Less

Dear Readers,

Happy New Year!

The Bloggers Who Budget are so excited to kick off 2015 with more budget-friendly style, and this month, we’re sharing our winter favorites for less. I’m partial to this Old Navy poncho I scored at Crossroads Trading Company for a whopping $12!

The poncho has been in constant rotation this season, especially as my more fitted sweaters are getting a little too snug around the bump. Warm and cozy, it’s also incredibly versatile – I’ve worn it with skinny black pants and a blouse at work and a long-sleeved tee and leggings on the weekends. I also love that it eliminates the need for a scarf, thanks to the oversized collar. Anything that takes the guesswork out of getting ready in the morning is fine by me.
