Fall Classics.

It’s definitely cape season in New York and I’ve been wearing mine on repeat before it gets too cold!! I snagged this one in early September because I had a feeling that it would sell out, and I was right. It keeps coming back in stock though so keep an eye on it. In the meantime, this is an awesome alternative.. and it’s under $100! I pinned a few vintage gold brooches to the top of it and love how they look.

Hope you guys are having a great week. This morning I am actually off to Newport, Rhode Island… for a press trip with The Chanler. Staying in one of the mansions has been on my list for ages – I’m really looking forward to it.

Outfit Details: J.Crew Cape (really love this too!) // Sweet & Spark Brooches (c/o) // Talbots Tee (old but similar) // Kate Spade Bag // Express Jeans // Manolo Blahnik Pumps

    The Chanler is exquisite. I stayed in the Renaissance room. The rooms are so well appointed and the views! I’m a Rhode Islander and this time of year (and December) is my favorite to visit Newport.

    I am loving this cape! I have been looking for one for a while and I like how this one is a thicker material and more coat-like than just a lightweight coat. I think that gives it longer wear the colder the weather gets. I also love the color.

    Love the brooches on your cape. Tan is such a good cape color.

    I love the look of the brooches! I wish I had been smart enough to snag this when I first fell in love…hoping they’ll do another restock soon!

    The brooches add a nice touch the coat. Staying in a mansion: How exciting! Have an excellent trip!
