I love Fall and Fall fashion. Time to dust off the boots, trenches and scarves and have some fun with layers. This year, ponchos and blanket capes are everywhere. I think this is such a fun trend and a really easy way to add some colour and texture to those standard go-to basics. I will admit, I was a bit hesitant to leave the house in what is basically a Snuggie…but I love the look and feel. It’s a bit edgier than a simple cardigan but just as cozy and easy to style.
For this look, I gave the outfit a bit of a 70’s feel by layering a turtleneck underneath and paired my favourite black midi boots with the ensemble. I wore jeans for a more casual look, but this outfit could easily go from day to night by swapping the jeans for a cute pair of leather leggings.
This specific cape I found at Winners for $29! (really). I am crazy about this cranberry colour for the season and I loved the woven texture. While I am a believer in purchasing some investment pieces, there are so many items like this in my closet that are beautiful and truly affordable.
Want to hear the real life story behind the Instagram worthy shots? I wore this on the weekend to get some family photos done..in freezing rain and gale force winds. My little peanut was being a typical toddler and refused to sit still or smile. Seriously, she was the human version of Grumpy Cat until we took her to the vehicle to have a break and let her sit in the driver’s seat (don’t worry, ignition was off). She instantly lit up with that smile I had begged for earlier. Murphy’s Law. I guess it’s a wind blown Adam’s Family Christmas card for us this year haha!
