Nothing beats the addition of one new item in your closet to make basics look that much more put together. I hope that is how y'all felt shopping on Black Friday and Cyber Monday! While I didn't get much I am very excited about the few things I did get to add some spunk to my closet. In a similar way, finally being able to wear an item purchased off-season does that same thing for me. I purchased this cape during Nordstrom's amazing Anniversary Sale this summer and finally had the chance to take the tags off last week, talk about an exciting day!
Capes are such a fun concept but not always the most practical as it can be a pain to make sure that they are positioned properly on your shoulders and not awkwardly tucked under themselves. Fortunately, this cape is a little different since it serves as the perfect weight outerwear and has buttons on the sleeves to keep everything in place. The light brown color with grey/navy interior makes a statement on its own even when paired with something as simple as a white t-shirt. Add in your favorite brown riding boots and a worn in pair of jeans it's an equally as comfortable outfit as it seems "chic."
Sadly, when Nell and I were shooting this look the sun was getting to the point where all of the pictures turned out a bit weird which explains the lack of images however this cape was just too fun to neglect sharing it at all. I am excited to have hit Tuesday as my big project for one of my classes is due and while there is still a lot to be accomplished this week and before the last day of class a week from today having that turned in is a huge weight off of my shoulders.
