Castle Hunting :: Cape coat & Lace ruffles

by wendy

Happy Monday everyone and greetings from Scotland!  It’s my first time in Edinburgh and I have to say… it’s probably one of my favorite cities!  We only stayed for 3 days and it was not enough.  I actually wanted to visit Scotland to see the castles and ended up not stepping foot in a castle.  We were working and shooting so much that we didn’t have time to visit Edinburgh Castle.  We saw it from afar and kept on saying we’ll drop by tomorrow… and tomorrow… and next thing you know, we were packing to go home.  But Edinburgh sans castle was not my biggest regret… do you know what is?!  We stayed right next to (literally next door) a cat cafe!!!  The first cat cafe in Scotland!  We passed by it every day and couldn’t get an appointment to get in.  It was quite the destination!  A handful of huge cats (norwegian forest cats, ragdolls, maine coons, and more), and I was a glass window away from squeezing them!  There will be a next time.  Edinburgh, round two.  For the cats.

The dark and mysterious feel of Edinburgh calls for detective-inspired pieces.  This camel cape-like wool coat has a Sherlock Holmes vibe, and to bring out the softer side of Sherlock Holmes, I coupled it with a sheer ruffle panel dress and lace-up boots.  The mini size of the structured satchel also adds a delicate contrast to the oversized look of the coat.

A hint of detective work, a dash of autumn colors with beige and burgundy, and a magnificent background.  I hope you enjoy this photo-story and styling!  As always, thank you so much for reading and special thanks to Nordstrom for partnering on this post!
