I am so excited to finally be able to share with you my latest obsession from Zara, which doubles (triples?) as a scarf/poncho/cape, all in one neat little item. Someone at work today even told me they really wanted an adorable plaid blanket just like mine (thanks?)
It’s basically like an entire layer you can shove in your bag and pull out like Mary Poppins (I’ve already done that, you know). I love that each side has a chic plaid print, which pretty much ensures you’ll be looking top-notch no matter what you decide to pair it with. A perfect fall-to-winter transition piece, which is great for Chicago seeing as it was 45 degrees when i walked to work but 28 degrees when I was walking home.
One of my favorite items to pair it with are my new Zara booties. Yes, they sucked me on the same day I made the scarf purchase. Fine, the entire day was an impulse shopping trip, but if not for my moment of weakness you wouldn’t know about these two fall must-haves. Justification enough, don’t you think?
