After starting this new med school quest called anatomy, I had forgotten how cathartic getting dressed up and stepping out into the crisp chilly air is. Most of my days involve wearing scrubs (which I vow to make more fashionable someday) and staring at coloured bones and muscles all night. But tonight we had a book club meeting to discuss Ian McEwan's Enduring Love, a bizarre narrative revolving around the reactions of several troubled characters and a strange man with a strange conditions called erotomania. I can proudly say my passion for literary analysis and discussion led some to think I was an English major in college (Neuroscience: like culinary studies for zombies). It's surprising where I find the time or willpower to squeeze in reading a book for pleasure, but the fine art I'm still trying to learn is how to carve out little pockets of free time to enjoy my artsy side.

The recent sartorial highlight was receiving this very weather-appropriate BB Dakota tweed chevron cape from Jupe Boutique. When I opened the package I was shocked at how sturdy thick and form fitting this cute little number was and how it keeps me warm without adding a ton of bulk. The bell shaped sleeves make arm movements comfortable and still allow full mobility - something most cape designs forget about. The length and belt are perfect for cinching at the waist and making sure my petite self wears the cape and it doesn't swallow me. Threw on some black neutral bottoms to keep with the dark sleek tones, messy side braid and freshly cut bangs. It's trendy but very capable of being a winter classic for many more non-Michelin-man chilly days.

You look so cute! Your braid is the perfect touch to a simple-chic fall look. You really make the cape stand out with the chic pencil skirt and leggings. The leaves are gorgeous, and I'm glad you had a chance to dress up!

What a fun item and oh so functional with the thick material for cold winters! All the details are lovely, from the curved arm holes and bottom, and belt for accentuating your tiny waist. Great styling with monochrome bottom half, low ponytail, and dark red lips. Very sophisticated "red riding hood" look :). Seriously, great look overall!

you look so chic! I'm not sure I could pull that off, but you do it with ease. I also love that you always have a few nature pictures in your posts - your leaves are much better that ours, and I'm only a state away!
