Cape Tales // Vintage Modern Mix

Happy Tuesday everybody! Today I am posting my second installment for my collaboration with Jigsaw London. If you missed the first post, you can check it out here. I was really excited to wear this poncho because it's the perfect addition to any fall outfit. I paired it with this vintage skirt and boots and even though it was a little windy that day, I felt completely warm and comfortable. The poncho is cashmere and also is made of rabbit hair so it's perfectly soft and cozy! 
I had a lot of fun styling this outfit up with a lot of different vintage accessories. This necklace is one of my most interesting thrifted pieces. It reminds me of an aries symbol, but I'm not really sure what it means. I love finding pieces like that at the thrift store because they're so unique and different, and when you only pay about a dollar for it, that's even better! The rings I am wearing both belong to my Mom. She has a an awesome selection of weird and quirky antique jewelry, I love looking through it all.

I took these photos last weekend in the park, and the weather was beautiful. I think my favorite thing to do on a Saturday recently is to walk through the park and see how the leaves are changing. I haven't been spending enough time outside recently and I really miss it. I want to enjoy it before it's too cold to function, so I am trying to fit in a little bit of outdoor time as much as I can. I am looking forward to some much needed time off in the next few months, and I am even going to Lake George the end of November. I couldn't be more happy or excited. I hope you guys have some sweet fall plans in the next few weeks/months. Hope your day is a great one!

  4. I'm totally jealous of your ability to wear the poncho for two reasons - you look great and the weather is permitting you to do so! It's still hot in Arizona.. I can't wait for cooler temperatures so I can finally spend time outside. Love your style!

  21. Vintage jewelry is my favorite too. I really love that necklace you found! I have a feeling my sister would love it too. You've styled that poncho adorably as well. I never think I can pull off the poncho look, but I love this. Plus it looks and sounds like the poncho is super soft and comfy. That's always an extra perk!
