Our weather is crazy.  It goes from cool 50s and to the mid-70s in just hours from October to March in Texas!  My mom laughs at me because I never check the weather until the morning but really, why bother.  It changes so quickly here!

I don’t worry though because most often you will find me with a Cuyana Alpaca Cape ready to go.  To combat the crazy temperature swinging back and forth, I grab one cozy favorite.  What is the one piece I always have with me?  One of my Cuyana Wraps.

I own both the tan and the black.  It’s a travel essential!  It comes in Navy and Gray, also.  They are the perfect touch for casual and dressy outfits.  I wore the tan one this week with a sweater dress.  It was my also choice for date night when I wore this look.

If you are looking for the perfect gift, the Cuyana Cape will be well loved.  I carry it every time I travel as well.  I’ve created a boutique with these and other Cuyana favorites below.

Speaking of gifts, I’m working on my Gift Guides that I’ll be sharing soon.  I’d love to know what you’d like to see or any special requests you have so please leave them in the comments below!
