It's no secret that the blanket or cape trend is huge right now. 
I think I fell in love with the trend the moment I saw Cara Delevingne wearing her monogrammed Burberry one down the runway. Seriously though, that cape/poncho/blanket is amazing.. $1395 for it not so much. 
In comes this version that I think I may love even more. Not only is it affordable, it's reversible! My boyfriend is not the biggest fan of this wearable blanket but he's probably just jealous he can't wear a super comfy blanket outside haha. Am I right ladies?

It makes me sad that these are probably one of the last outfit posts I'll be posting without snow. It was one of those evenings that had that certain chill in the air. In the words of John Snow/pretty much every character on Game of Thrones... "winter is coming". I so wish I lived somewhere with no snow because quite frankly I am NOT a fan! It can snow on Christmas and thats it! haha 

What do you think of the cape/blanket/poncho trend?

Well it finally got REALLY cold here in Calgary! It had to come sooner or later right? 
I'm pretty cool with it as long as it doesn't snow, although I know that's coming very soon (this week!). Can I just go back to San Francisco already? I think I'm meant for the California life! 
One of the plus sides of it getting chilly is the layering. I've had this coat for a little while and I've worn it a few times but I'm only now featuring it on the blog. It's weird how that happens sometimes! 
Also, how is it almost November? Before we know it, it'll be Christmas! Eeeeek!

sweater: h&m (nearly identical version here) // dress worn as a skirt: joe fresh // shoes: aldo // hat: old navy // watch: c/o: daniel wellington 

After spending a few hours purging my closet of all the clothes I didn't want anymore (I currently have two huge garbage bags full to give away) I realized I still had a ton of pieces that needed more love. What's one of those pieces? This black dress from Joe Fresh. I loved it so much I also got it in green (seen here). Although it's more of a summer dress I gave it a new life by layering a sweater over it... and poof! it's a midi skirt!

Also I think this is the year of "Mel wearing hats". Seriously, I can't get over them! I have quite the collection now but this bargain from Old Navy is still one of my faves.
