Kate Spade bag c/o (available exclusively at the Madison Avenue flagship, also love this one available online!)

I've been wanting a cape coat for, let's see, just about forever. When I learned about Leslie Tessler, I knew I needed to add one of her pieces to my closet sooner rather than later. She has so many gorgeous designs but I settled on the classic trench cape and I couldn't be happier. It's a little bit outside of my comfort zone but still totally classic and perfect for transitioning from winter to spring. I layered it over my new favorite t-shirt for an afternoon in SoHo and had three separate women stop me on the street to ask who made it. So I'm extra excited that Leslie is generously offering 25% off all her designs with code DARLINGCAPE at checkout. If you're looking for a recommendation, I'm crazy for this and this!

P.S. Need more inspiration on styling a cape? Voilà.
