Last weekend, the sun was out and my husband came back from playing golf and suggested we head to the park for a picnic. I was initially planning on lounging around the house all day in a simple cotton dress, but I never pass up a picnic in the park on a beautiful day. I quickly changed into this gingham on gingham combo before throwing a few things into our picnic basket and heading out to our favorite spot, Lafayette Park. It looks like we’re stuck with rain all this weekend, so here’s to a cozy weekend spent inside!

I’m currently in the process of packing for our holiday trip and promised myself that I would be more strategic this year. I’m planning on bringing a few different combinations of pretty much the same thing- jeans, plaid shirts, a few knit sweaters and this cape. It’s great for outdoor activities since it’s really durable, but still looks cute and chic for evening dinners. It’s always a win when you can pack light and make the most out of a few things!

Here are a few other capes (in a variety of price points) that I love…
