STYLE STORY: CAPE COAT + STYLE TO INSPIRE LINKUP


Happy Monday! Hope you all had wonderful & restful weekends! Mine may not have been restful, but it was packed full of adventures doing the things I love with some of the people I love! To sum it up, I got to accompany a friend on the violin at her Spoken Word gig, attend The Art of Fashion Show with a bestie, celebrate life at a childhood friend's baby shower, watch Evan Savage (& my sister on violin) rock the stage at House of Blues, and capped it off perfectly with leading worship at church which is one of my favorite ways to use this gift of music. All in all, I'm loving this season of life!

Speaking of seasons, when I visited New Jersey last week, it was Fall weather perfection. We savored every moment by spending a lot of time outdoors. For the trip I packed my favorite wool sweaters, my riding boots & my cape coat for extra warmth. I've been so happy to give my cape coat some extra mileage this year since most years it's been either too cold or too hot to wear it. But this past month has been perfect for cape & sweater weather! The cape I'm wearing here is from past seasons, but I'm loving this on from Kate Spade! Speaking of Kate Spade, don't forget to enter our $300 Kate Spade gift card Giveaway! Here are some of my other cape coat favorites:
What have you been wearing this Fall season? This week, I'm so excited to be co-hosting the Style to Inspire Linkup again with Rhea of Rhea Et Cetera! We can't wait to see what you've been wearing lately! Please follow both of us on Bloglovin' (Rhea Et Cetera | Grace in Style) & check out other bloggers' links and show some love to their style to inspire!

Here's one way I styled my cape coat last weekend. I decided to layer against the slight chill with a J.Crew polka dotted shirt under an Old Navy sweater and pastel pink JCrew pants. I accessorized with a Kate Spade book clutch & my favorite Benevolent Jewels statement necklace! Don't forget that you can get 20% off your purchase at Benevolent Jewels with my code JHCODE20!
