Plaid Cape

Blankets, ponchos, capes…they are all on the it list for Fall. 

 So what's the difference?
Blankets - the favorite big scarf 
Ponchos - overcoats with 1 hole for our head, usually square
Capes - same as a poncho but with 2 extra holes for our arms and sometimes open in front

I was drawn to this cape because of the colors in it and how incredibly soft it is!  It's easy and effortless to throw on with skinny jeans and booties, but it would look equally cute and even dressier with leggings and pumps.

The tricky part about wearing a poncho or cape is balancing the volume of it with a more sleek look underneath.  Pieces like skinny jeans, leggings, pencil skirts and turtlenecks look great under ponchos and capes and help prevent a frumpy look.  It also can be belted to give it more of a shape.

So my family is meeting Katey and her family in the WV mountains this weekend.  We are looking forward to the beautiful Fall colors there, fun family time and getting some great pictures together.  Follow us on Instagram and snapchat (twopeasinablog) to see what we are up to over the weekend.

  2. This plaid is gorgeous! I think the good thing about blanket scarves is they could also become a cape if they are long enough.
