I’m a true romantic at heart. I can’t help but get attached to something for the idea of it or for the story behind it. A few weeks ago, I went up to my grandma and grandpa’s house with my mom and sister to pick a few items and to say goodbye to their house, and them, one last time. It’s such a crazy part of life to have to close a chapter. That house was my comfort zone growing up – I would have taken every last thing to remember them if I could. One thing that I did take, among other clothes and knick-knacks, was this knit cape. I couldn’t get over the image of my beautiful grandmother wearing it. I love the idea that I have a few pieces from her past hanging in my closet. Every time I wear something of hers, I’ll be able to carry on that history. It seems like such a pure and honest way to keep her close.
To go with the cape for this look, I chose a Minx Boutique suede dress. This outfit was a way for me to incorporate fall textures in this never-ending summer weather. My Ray-Bans from DITTO and my lace-up sandals were perfect for the massively boho vibe I was giving out. Lastly, a few gold pieces tied in with the sunglasses and lent to the finishing touch.
