Plaid cape soldout but this one is adorable, and 25% off with code 'INTHEFAM25' at Shopbop!
My mom has worn capes every since I can remember. She chicly swaddled herself in them running to and fro in the city, with little old me by her side admiring her chic presence and 'drive' to always go somewhere. It's safe to say I get some of my chicer outfit choices from this woman, probably some of my not-so-chic ones too— she was force to be reckoned with in the 70's, disco everything.
Today's plaid on plaid take just happened, originally I planned on wearing a plain white oxford, but the plaid woven one was hanging right next to it just begging to be worn with said plaid cape. It's the perfect intro-to-fall and borderline-holiday-look. I added a glossy berry lip to really accentuate the seasonal feel, added a polished pair of pumps, and a vintage cat brooch to add a bit of glamour but also secure the cape closed when the chill came in.
It's safe to say I'm a little obsessed with plaid for fall, but plaid on plaid is so much better.
