Blankets are definitely the new coat for the coming season.

With winter drawing near, I'm resorting back to snug over-sized pieces ready for the A/W.
Ever since the Burberry blanket cape and Cara Delevingne saga I've been keen to get my hands on my own cosy blanket cape. Of course, in an ideal world I'd have the Burberry blanket.. but I don't think I'm quite ready to part with £1000 for one item of clothing. Especially when its effectively an 'overthrow' item. 

However, I stumbled across this beaut when my Bluewater shopping experience was meant to be drawing to a close.. 
(I promised I wouldn't spend anymore money!)
I've always been mad on tartan and fur collars anyway. So when I saw all these features combined in blanket cape form I knew I didn't even need to deliberate and parted ways with my cash!
I paired it with my other impulse River Island purchase - the 'tres chic' oversized tee which I knew would look fab with the blanket cape.

Next on my list is the Topshop blanket cape, which shares an even closer resemblance to the Burberry one. 

What do you think of the blanket cape trend?
Any hidden gems you've located?
I'd love to know!

  10. I love that cape! I really wish I picked it up (I got the tartan trousers instead but now I want the blazer). I'm just a little bit obsessed with tartan right now.
