Adding a cape to an outfit

Sunday, October 25, 2020

Capes are not very easy to style but they are fun, and can make an outfit look fresh and interesting (in a good way!) in the sea of parkas and jackets. 
I'm wearing a vintage cape that is a bit of crossover with a poncho, it's light and warm. It has survived multiple closet cleanouts despite the fact that I wear it so rarely (I've worn it on the blog a few years back here). I still remember how I won it on an eBay auction, it was fun and I felt proud :-). Speaking of proud, I also scored this chunky vintage Ben Amun bracelet on eBay (love bracelets with charms as well)! 

Currently I'm very into baseball caps, it's especially easy with this J. Crew leopard cap (sold out now but here's a good neutral) that has definitely become a classic. It's really handy when it's drizzling outside and I don't feel like taking my umbrella, or when I have a bad hair day (happens too often lately).

My oxfords are older Dr. Martens Joyce but they have a ton of chunkier trendy versions now.
