Ruana: Brooks Brothers, similar here ($48!) and here ($24!) | Top: H&M | Jeans: Forever 21, similar here and loving these | Pumps: J.Crew Factory | Bag: Marc Jacobs, similar here | Sunnies: Ray-Ban, loving these | Bracelets: Mindy Mae's Market, kate spade | Watch: Michael Kors | Earrings: Nadri | Lipstick: Estee Lauder - Nude 

So last year for Christmas my Dad bought me this beautiful ruana. At first, I thought it was a scarf, and said "ohhh what a pretty scarf!", but I was surprised to hear (from my dad no less) that it was a ruana, a term I'd never heard before. Fast forward to this fall/winter, and ruanas are now super on trend! I shouldn't be surprised that my dad picked this out - he honestly has the best style and insists on using tailors often! I love how ruanas can be styled in both casual and formal looks. For work, I traded my jeans with a camel-colored pencil skirt to make my look office appropriate, and I've also styled it with a simple black cotton dress and flats. It's honestly so versatile and being that it's a wool/cashmere blend, it's soooo warm! This is definitely a gift I've used over and over.

OK so Gift Guide: Part 3 will be on the blog Friday! Sorry for the delay, but I promise everything will be under $25! :)

  2. hi dear,very nice outfit..i like your cape
    stunning outfit

  3. Great ruana! The fall/winter color palette is wonder. Smart thinking when deciding where to purchase this piece from. The the one from Nordstrom is at an exremely low price point, the quality is no where near the same. Thats very visable. The BB one look plush and as though it would provide warmth. For my travel attire to Japan several weeks ago, I went with a ruana as well but I belted mine. I may have to swing by BB after work today and steal your look.
