Hazel Crochet PonchoLike salt and pepper, Jekyll and Hyde, Gaga and weird outfits...some things just belong together. Likewise, ponchos and fall are fairly synonymous with one another, but this summer finds them designed with warm weather comfort in mind. This particular style is crocheted for a trendy take on crafty chic. Beautifully embellished with a floral neckline and cut loose for effortless wear, it's super cute over a bikini and shorts - and the warm ivory hue makes it a cinch to pair with jeans and boots come fall, too.
