J. Crew Cape Jacket in Wool Melton and meeting a blog reader!

Hi Everyone!

The J. Crew Cape Jacket in Wool Melton  caught my eye immediately, but I almost passed on it because I wasn't sure about the camel color against my skin tone.  I am so glad that my Cincinnati VPS encouraged me to try this beauty because I LOVE it!

The reviews on this jacket will be polarizing because it has an oversized fit (and, it is not offered in a petite size).  So, sadly, you will likely be sized out if you are on the smaller side.

Here are three IRL pictures of the cape:

You can see my amazing husband snapping the pic in the window, LOL!  

Fit:  I took the size M/L in this cape.  Again, I love this piece.  The quality is superb.  

I styled my cape with the J. Crew Always Chambray Shirt, the J. Crew Biella Tassel Loafers, and the J. Crew Toothpick Jeans in Classic Rinse.  I cannot wait to wear this outfit this Fall!  Here is the Pinterest image that inspired me:

While in the Cincinnati store yesterday, I met a super sweet/cute blog reader!  As I was checking out, she asked, "Are you Rynetta?"  It was the sweetest encounter.  I am SO grateful that you spoke to me.  I had a great conversation with her and one of her friends about teaching!

As always, thanks for stopping by!


  1. Thanks for being so sweet and approachable. As I said in the store, I love your style and genuinely appreciate your reviews. I'm not usually the type to introduce myself to strangers that I follow on the internet, so thanks for making me feel so comfortable! Now that I see how cute that cape looks on you, I'm feeling like I might need to test out a cape, as well! How great would that look with a wool pencil skirt and statement necklace...

  2. Oh my word…I love everything about this look, Rynetta! I'm now convinced I need a cape too.

  3. How fun you were recognized! Love the cape on you, it looks great!

  4. It looks good on you, Rynetta!

    I haven't gotten my cape from ordering it last Tuesday. :( I am so curious as to how it looks on me.

  5. I love this cape on you Rynetta! These are times when I wish I didn't live in Florida.
