perfect travel piece

Screen Shot 2015-08-05 at 7.39.32 AM Nothing is better for traveling than a simple knit cape. It acts as a blanket on board the plane. Provides warmth on a chilly evening. And simply fits over anything looking chic.

Nearly 20 years ago I purchased a black cashmere cape — a huge investment at the time but it turned out to be the best piece of clothing I ever bought. All these years later my prized possession is riddled with moth holes and I have been on the hunt for a replacement. The above grey wool knit by Eileen Fisher is pretty darn close — it’s ample in size, is the perfect weight and while wool instead of cashmere it’s nice and soft and I intend to make it my new travel companion.

Now, get me to the plane . . .
