I absolutely love Turkish towels (aka Pestemals) and have several that I use as scarves/wraps and beach blankets. But when I spotted this Turkish towel poncho at a local artisan’s market in Venice, it was so unique I just had to have it! The Handloom is a local company that “blends traditional Turkish culture and the Southern California sun.”

I wore it on an afternoon outing to Malibu Wines and it was the perfect layer — not too warm for the daytime, but for when the sun started to go down. It comes in other colors, but I loved the creamy light color. And I can see it looking great with a long sleeve white tee later in the fall!
