Friday Find: A Perfect Poncho

Cable Knit Poncho from Smart Set, $60

There just something about a cape...it makes you look like a stylish superhero, instantly setting you apart from the crowd and keeping you protected from the cool fall weather.  I'm choosing this cable knit version from Smart Set as a chic alternative to your everyday fall jacket.  Wear it with your fave skinnies, leggings and flat boots, or dresses and skirts with opaque tights.  Belted or not, this poncho will become an instant favourite.

I'll admit it - I hadn't been a Smart Set shopper for years but lately, I've been finding lots of amazing things there.   Plus, I just found out that the company's unveiling a brand new direction for fall.  

Our Smart Set customer has evolved and like every Canadian woman she is looking to be inspired across all of the elements of her shopping experience and we, as a brand, needed to evolve too in order to meet her specific needs. Our new direction aims to create a shopping experience that offers her both inspiration and value and that reflects her energy and personal style. We’ve listened to customers across the country and are confident we will surpass her expectations, says President of Smart Set, Kim Schumpert. 

With a refreshed attitude and trendier merchandise, the brand is set to launch a new, national ad campaign, a revamped website and a new look and feel throughout their retail stores, plus loads more accessories than ever before.  Exciting!

Happy weekend, everyone and of course, happy shopping!  (isn't it always?)
