Happy Wednesday! Some weeks it feels like a big accomplishment just to make it to the middle of the week – do you know what I mean? The endless rain has dampened my spirit this week. But I want to share one of my favorite pieces of outerwear today – the cape!
This cape has been a huge hit this fall/winter season. The cape is such an interesting garment – in some ways it defies classification – is it a sweater? Is it a coat? What is its purpose really? To me it is an easy to wear topper for virtually every garment and it is extremely comfortable. Not the most practical of choices for the extreme winter months, but during fall, light winter days and early spring it seems like the obvious choice. Besides, I love how it is such a show stopper. It has a dramatic Sherlock Holmes kind of quality and people do love the uniqueness of it, I promise.
I have a funny story about this ZARA necklace. When I saw it I immediately gravitated towards it. The shape, the sparkle and the color are spot on perfect for me. While I was removing it from the hook a young girl about 6 years old with her mother pointed at it and started jumping up and down. She was also screaming “ooooh, this one, this one”. It was beyond cute! I turned to her embarrassed mother and said, “she is just doing what I am feeling on the inside.” 🙂
I love the leather detailing on the cape – they say the devil is in the details and I agree wholeheartedly.
It was a bit windy last week….
I hope your staying warm wherever you are – but if not, try a cape.
