plaid cape for wine country

{Uniqlo cape, Uniqlo white buttonup c/o, J. Crew denim, Nine West boots, Bally bag, Clarins lipstick}

This season there are a few trends emerging, but the blanket cape is probably one of my favorites. Mind you I've seen this silhouette try to happen years ago but it never took off like it is right now. I remember being in Forever 21 years ago and spotting a plaid blanket cape on the sale rack for something ridiculously cheap like $15. I never did get my cape on sale, but I still think about it to this day, so I'm happy to have found a pretty great replacement in this gorgeous Uniqlo one. 

The print is pretty loud, so of course I went with this one- it reminded me of a Christmas plaid, so you know I'll get lots of use of it in the next few months- but there are a ton of other muted tones if that is more your thing. I wore this look to Healdsburg a few weeks ago for a little wine weekend. Wine country is beautiful this time of year, it's not too cold and not too warm so this cape was the perfect addition to my outfit. Speaking of the outfit, it's a little Ralph Lauren-esque no? I love the ranch-style-elegance I'm getting from this look! What do you wear to wine country in the fall?

Don't forget, if you are in the Bay Area tonight I'm hosting a holiday party at Bloomingdales in Palo Alto tonight from 6-8. Hope to see you there!
