It’s back to cool weather, so I’m back to my go to fall and winter classics. These knee high boots were an online find a few years ago and I still think they’re my favorite fall shoes. They’re actually quite comfortable and dress up a pair of jeans so easily! These one are made by UGG who, I believe, makes wonderful shoes (not just slippers)! It does help that they match my favorite tote bag, I won’t lie. And then my wintery sweater find in Maine last month has me set from every angle. This tan cape outfit is likely to be on repeat – at home and when I’m traveling…
Tan Cape Outfit
When my mom and I were in Portland, Maine, we dutifully (in our opinion), took the short drive up to Rockport to the LL Bean flagship store. Full of everything cozy, fall, and flannel, the two-story store was an experience. Though I wanted to bring home every soft thing I could get my hands on, I opted to pick something a little more flexible for the warmer climate in which I live. Since I’m a sucker for shawls and capes, this cape was the obvious choice (and it wasn’t expensive)!
I’d like to say that I’ve had many tan cape outfit ideas since adding this beautiful piece to my wardrobe, but that’s an overstatement. I’ve worn it numerous times, but half the time, I throw it on over a plain shirt and jeans. It’s a great layer that’s cozy but not restrictive. I’ve even worn it out on a few early mornings and I look surprisingly put-together. I mean, luckily nobody has engaged me in much conversation or my cover would be blown, but hey! I’ll take whatever help I can.
The Perfect Tan Bag + Boots
You know I love items that are available season after season, but all good things, apparently, must come to an end. This tote has been my favorite bag for the past 5 1/2 years. There is a very similar style available here, but then there’s also the fact that it is an investment piece and therefore not something about which you make a quick decision. Since I would include a brown tote in my closet essentials, I found a number of similar fabulous totes at a fraction of the cost – all linked below.
Along those lines, I found a handful of tan suede boots that are very similar to this lovely pair. Some have a thinner heel, others are practically flat – a little something for everyone!
