The Find: A Travel Cape

Nov 15, 2019

With holiday travel on the horizon, let’s take a moment to talk about my favorite airplane accessory: the cape scarf.  Because keeping warm can also look chic.

This Madewell Flecked Herringbone Cape Scarf has great style.  First, I love the black and ivory palette.  Second, the arm holes keep the cape on your shoulders without slipping.  It’s the best, and will keep you  warm for the whole flight.  And when you land at your destination, you can fold it in half and use it like a big scarf.

I wear mine over Lululemon leggings, a long black turtleneck sweater, and my Rothy’s flats.  Simple as that.

    Any idea on the fit of this on a plus or petite person? Thinking about gifting a few, but I’m not sure HOW “one size fits all” it would be…

    I love the idea of a cape but I have no idea how to wrap and style myself wearing one. Somehow I always seem to do it wrong and it ends up looking sloppy. Can you help me in a future post? I’d love to see the nuts and bolts of how to do this. Thanks for considering!

    I have an older version from Madewell and love it! Second this recommendation!

The Range: Trouser Jeans

Yesterday, we chatted about not-see-through tees. Today, I want to talk about jeans. I am so grateful wide leg denim is back in a big way. And if you’re going to the office, you need a trouser style jean to see you through the week (or just casual Friday). Here are some favorites in different […]

The Find: A Miracle T-Shirt

Remember when clothes didn’t suck? The years were the late-90s and early-aughts. Jeans stretched a little, but were mostly cotton. Cashmere was soft and heavy and durable. Poly-blends were only sold at the giant teens stores on the lower level of the mall. And t-shirts were thick, not see-through, and wore like iron. Your first […]
