Cape & Hot Coffee | London Outfit












TOP: Halogen (fall/winter staple) | CAPE: Topshop | DENIM: AG (currently on sale!) | BOOTIES: Vince Camuto | BAG: Chanel (similar HERE!) | EARRINGS: Nasty Gal | BRACELET: BaubleBar | WATCH: Michael Kors | LIPS: "Whirl" + "Snob"

You'll probably notice that my hair looks crazy in these photos - the was wind intense here in London. I'm not even sure how I got any photos without my hair stuck in my lipstick, lol! Anyway, aside from that I really love this weather here, its perfect cape weather. You all know I love a good cape or poncho - I prefer them over jackets since they are lighter & lose! While in London & France, I saw so many women wearing capes & they all look so chic & put together, even though it is so easy to throw one on over your basic pieces!

As many of you know, Caitlin and I were in Paris on Friday & we did make it back to London that evening. Neither of us had phone service there unless we were at our flat w/wifi so on Friday night we went out for dinner and we stopped in a shop on the way to dinner & my phone automatically connected to their wifi & that's when I started seeing my Instagram notifications & getting texts from friends & family asking if we were still in Paris & if we were okay. The attacks in Paris make me sick at my stomach & hit a little closer to home since we had just been there a few hours before it happened. I feel so awful for the people involved in the attacks & their loved ones, it is heartbreaking. I'm constantly praying for the beautiful city of Paris.

Also, I was really touched by all of the comments on Instagram asking if we made it out okay - that was so sweet. <3

  1. What happen in Paris is horrible but it´s just as horrible the attack that happen in Beruit that nobody is talking about. I understand that for you it must have been really crazy because you where just there in Paris so don´t take the things I´m writing the wrong way. I just think that instead of people changing their profile picture to the France flag maybe they should change it to a symbol of the world because things like this happens everywhere. But as I wrote I understand that you must have been affected just they way I was when the school here in my home town Trollhättan, Sweden. Was attacked and two young boys died because of a hate crime. I´m so happy that you are okay :)
