scallop hem plaid cape cognac riding boots navy crossbody fall winter outfit idea

This scallop hem plaid cape is probably my favorite cape of all time.  Could it get any more perfect?  Classic plaid, scallop hem and available in regular and petite sizes?  Yes please!  The quality is AMAZING – see my previous review HERE.  I first posted it on Instagram and it went bananas!  Hopefully you were able to scoop it up during Black Friday or Cyber Monday.  It seriously is THE BEST!

It’s SO difficult to find a cape that is doesn’t swallow you up especially if you’re petite.  Another issue is movement of the arms…so glad I don’t feel like a mummy when wearing this and my arms can move freely (lol).

Is it weird that I want to wear it around the house (lol)?  Okay that would be weird but that’s how much I love this!  It’s finally cool enough to wear it and I got so many gals who stopped me to ask me where I got it from.  I love the modern twist with the scallop hem – it’s so unique and totally different from any cape I’ve ever seen.  Too cute for words!

I wanted to take a moment and talk about this navy crossbody.  I have been searching and searching for a replacement for my well used J.Crew Eadie bag and haven’t been able to find anything that I like until I came across this.  I wear navy so often and love that it pairs with basically everything.  This is my first Gigi New York bag and I’m pretty impressed.  The quality matches the price.

It comes in four different colors and I love the the cognac color too – reminds me of a similar one I wore in this post.  I love that it doubles as a crossbody so I can be hands free and the top handle is exactly what I was looking for.  I expected it to be a bit smaller and not as deep but I’m glad it is so I can fit extra stuff and not have it bulge out.  Plenty of room for all your daily essentials and then some.

Each season, I search high and low for a similar pair of riding boots like these BP. runway boots I got years ago.  Why oh why doesn’t Nordstrom bring these back?  They are hands down the MOST comfortable boots EVER MADE and they’re petite friendly.  See my old review HERE.
