CAPE COZY

I've always loved the "cape" look, but thought it would look too overwhelming on my petite 5'2 frame. However, with the cape being popular this winter in London, I thought," Well, no harm in trying the look out,right?" And I am so glad I did!

This cozy cape has become one of my winter favorites. Since it's not socially acceptable to wear robes or blankets around in public ( what's up with that, right?), this is the next best thing. It's kept me warm and cozy, no matter what the weather might be here!




Jeans: Old by VINCE
Heels: OFFICE
Cape: Camden Lock Market
Bag: Gifted by L's Family
I wore this out to a a casual dinner with friends last weekend and I know this cape will get lots of love throughout this winter!
Have you all bought a cape sweater this winter? Would love to hear suggestions on where to get another!

Xoxo,
Karen

  3. I agree, it's completely unfair that we can't wear robes out and about! :) Love everything about this look - especially that amazing pair of denim!

  14. Love the cape! Those nude heels are the perfect pairing yet I would not have thought of it myself. I guess it's a good thing we have blogs so we can ideas!
