Easy, cozy, warm and effortless, all the fashion buzzwords apply to one of my favorite fall/winter staples, the cashmere cape. With Thanksgiving a little over a week away it’s the perfect piece to throw on for a day of (let’s be honest) overeating and hanging out. This one from Autumn Cashmere is so warm I only needed a light turtleneck underneath. I can’t believe how many times I’ve worn these leather pants but they truly are super comfortable and flattering. These ankle boots were also on sale at Nordstrom so I had to try them out. The reviews were mixed about sizing and I went with my normal size 7 which was perfect. I love them so much I bought them in the tan too. Definitely looking forward to wearing these around London in a few weeks. And speaking of travel, a cashmere cape or poncho is the ultimate travel accessory. I am that person that’s always cold so it keeps me warm and cozy, especially for long flights. Nordstrom has a really great selection of cashmere capes and ponchos, starting at under $100! Here are my 5 favorites.

    Fantastic sweater cape, it is a perfect piece to just throw over any casual, minimalistic outfit and still look very stylish and weather appropriate. 🙂

    I love seeing others style capes because I’m never good at styling them. Love this on you!
