Your Ultimate Fall Must-Haves: The Wool Cape

Good morning guys! I’m going to have a #RealTalk with you for a moment. This post was supposed to go up last week, but with all of the heartbreak that has been going on in the world and the devasting shootings in Vegas, a fashion blog post, just seemed slightly trivial. I love this little space so much and I hope that you all get some benefit and enjoyment from it, but at the end of the day, it’s not as important as the big things. So I decided to take a few days off and honor those who lost their lives, those that are still fighting and the friends and families of both.

Please know that I have been thinking of and praying for all of you who have been affected in some way, shape or form. This is the time when we, as a country, need to stand together and not separate even though we may have different beliefs in certain things. It’s those things that can divide and break us.

That being said, there really isn’t a great way to transition into this post, so I’ll just get to it.

I am back again partnering with Banana Republic, to show you some of my ultimate fall must-haves. For today’s post, I styled these gorgeous chandelier earrings and beautiful wool cape. Earrings may not seem like a fall must-have, but statement earrings definitely are. And you can bet that a wool cape definitely is.

Whenever I think of fall, I think of bright beautiful trees, leaves falling on the ground, football games and tailgates (I’m a huge football fan!) and cold. Not frigid cold, like it can get during a Midwest winter, but significantly cold where a nice big wool cape and curling up by a fire would warm you up instantly.

An oversized cape, like this one, is an ultimate must-have. Because it’s the only (acceptable) way of walking around looking like you have a big blanket wrapped around you. And who doesn’t want to have a warm, cozy blanket to snuggle up in at a moment’s notice?

Banana Republic has some other beautiful options to choose from, like this striped one and this plaid one that I’m OBSESSED with! The other nice thing about this cape is that it’s reversible and comes in two other color combinations, this pretty color and this classic one.

Statement earrings have always been a fun way to dress up any look from a t-shirt and jeans to a pretty cocktail dress. But in the fall, when you’re cozied up in a turtleneck sweater, a pair of statement earrings probably isn’t the first thing you’d reach for.

The bigger and bulkier a sweater is, the more likely your hair is going to get caught in it. (amiright or is that just me?) Try pulling your hair up, throw on a pair of statement earrings, like these, and you’ll instantly transform your entire look.
