Even though the actual season of autumn is still weeks away for us here down south, I’ve loved watching new fall styles begin to emerge. Fall is my favorite time of year to embrace that classic, preppy style I’m smitten with, as the season lends itself to timeless pieces like riding boots, blazers and crisp button downs. Just a few of my favorite things!

Today, I’m thrilled to be partnering up with Modcloth to bring you this gorgeous fall ensemble, featuring what I already know will be one of my favorite pieces this season… this herringbone cape!

Ever since herringbone hit the scene a few years back in the form of a quilted vest that sold out almost instantly, I haven’t been able to get enough of the pattern! Talk about an utterly timeless look… there’s something about it that immediately elevates any ensemble.

So when I saw it incorporated into my favorite outerwear silhouette of the season, the cape, I couldn’t get my hands on it fast enough! I absolutely adore every detail of this beauty… from the button fasteners and slightly raised collar to the flattering length and cut. Finding a cape that fits well and looks elegant on can be a challenge, and this one is executed perfectly. For size reference, I’m in an XXS.

While Modcloth can get a bit quirky for my particular taste, I have had the best luck finding lovely, unique pieces there that no one else has. Do you remember this swimsuit I came across this summer? It was one of my favorites of the season. I’m delighted to see they have some really gorgeous fall finds in as well, like this beautiful coat and this suede miniskirt! And if this cape is any indication of what they have up their sleeves for this season, I can’t wait to see what’s next!

Wishing everyone a lovely weekend!

Love from Texas,


Thank you, Modcloth, for sponsoring this post.
