I have always loved a cape , so when I came across this black one with its floral sprigs recently I knew it had to be mine.
After all it addressed my criteria for buying something new, that is a timeless style, good quality and something I will wear for many years to come. I will admit that I am not always one for floral embellishment but I loved the subtle tones in the embroidery .
The cape is from Elliatt and is a rather clever design with a vest and is very warm , another plus as Winter sets in. Today I have worn it with Sacha Drake wide leg pants but know it will work just as well with many of my skirts.
Don’t you just love it when what you wear is as good coming or going.
Today’s post is a little late as I was keen to revisit this spot near the town of Evandale that we came across last year , but Mother Nature had other ideas yesterday with pouring rain and strong winds. This avenue of oak trees is the entrance to Logan , an old farming property, and provided the perfect backdrop for today’s colours.
Tan coloured block heeled lace-ups and Wolford black and cream socks paired perfectly. The Wolford socks were a naughty purchase in Melbourne recently.
I was also rather pleased that my little orange hat with its fluffy pom pom matched the cape. I came across this little hat in a small shop in the back streets of Paris in 2016 while searching for a hat box .
My faithful black studded leather gloves from Ted Baker and Karen Walker sunnies complete the outfit.
