Top: Matalan (last year)
As soon as I saw this blanket cape I knew I had to have it! It's the perfect combination of comfy yet stylish and I can now get away with wearing a blanket to work! The style of the cape has been inspired by Burberry AW14, who's models rocked a sort of scarf/coat combination, however the tartan brings the look back down to street style which means it's super wearable!
I teamed the cape with a textured black top and ripped jeans. I wanted to keep the rest of the outfit fairly simple and make the cape the statement piece. I know this is a very wintery item to wear in August, but with it being as cold and rainy as it has been it's the perfect excuse to wear it early! I'm also loving my new chunky Chelsea books from New Look, what do you think? Leave a comment below and let me know!
P.S. Please excuse the poor quality of some of these photos! It's so dark and cold by the time I get home from work that I had to take these photos inside. :-)
