Capes were, and still are, quite a big trend this season and now that it's starting to get much colder these definitely come in handy! I've loved wearing capes and blanket scarves over my outfits recently, especially whilst the weather has been kind to us which is why I keep wearing autumnal outfits during the winter months. But I know I'll still be reaching for my capes as it starts to get colder too as they're the perfect piece to throw over an outfit and still feel put together. I like the ideas of a cape replacing a chunky scarf for the I didn't even try look. I'm secretly hoping for some colder weather so I can really make the most of my winter-wear.
I absolutely love this cape from Blue Vanilla, it's reminiscent of the Burberry one which came about last winter I believe. I decided to go for something a little more casual looking with brown boots and a roll neck from Primark; Primark have some really great roll necks for such a good price and in so many colours too! I miss shopping in London when I'm away, it's just not the same here!! This week is my last week off before university officially kicks in and my second semester begins, I've been back for a couple of weeks already because of exams which has been a bummer but looking forward to starting the new term (and basically finishing my year abroad!)
