NOT YOUR NEPHEW’S CAPE

I’ve worn it all! From ponchos to outlandish jumpsuits; every new style trend there is, I’ve tried at least once. Which is why I had to give this black blazer cape a try, especially since it has been flooding my Instagram feed. I’m a big fan of a classic black blazer so this wasn’t too difficult for me to adjust to. However, Josh isn’t a huge fan; he thinks I look like Dracula. And now when I slip this on, that’s all I can think about (eye roll). If this blazer cape didn’t have the pronounced shoulder shape, I don’t think I would like it as much. The sleek shoulder point really gives this blazer a high fashion vibe. Although I decided to pair it with a more casual ensemble, it would look just as perfect layered over a red dress, (Valentine’s Day idea) or any bold color for that matter. Initially, when I was planning to style this outfit I had a black top underneath, but it didn’t give the cape the appropriate air time it deserved. So, I relied on my one of my favorite classics: a white oxford shirt. While I have many white button downs, this one from J.Jill, appropriately named ‘Essential White Shirt’,  is my recent go-to. It fits perfectly and J.Jill offers petite sizing so it’s the perfect length for my torso and arms. Josh’s comments aside, this cape is definitely a keeper and if you haven’t given it a shot, go for it!

MID-WINTER PICK ME UP

I’m getting so tired of my winter wardrobe lately–every morning I stare at my closet full of darks and neutrals, sweaters and pants, and groan with boredom. So to spark some inspiration I decided to revisit my spring wardrobe to find some pieces I can revive in this 10 degree weather we’ve been experiencing. As I was sifting through my pastel rompers and floral sundresses, reminiscing over coatless days and flip flops, I came across my most prized wide-leg pants from Bar iii; beaming with excitement I quickly paired my sleeveless sweater (another long time spring friend) and layered on a winter staple–  Ta-da! A (semi) brand new outfit for me to take on these brutally cold days while still combatting these frigid temps. It’s just the pick me up I needed to get out of this mid-winter rut. Oh and hey spring? yea, you can come back now, thanks.

If you find yourself in a winter wardrobe slump, revisit your old spring favorites–you’ll be surprised with what you find!

Happy Friday!

GRAPHIC TEES & COFFEE PLEASE

Here we go again, another work week and the worst kind: the Monday after Super Bowl Sunday. In an attempt to alleviate my Monday blues I decided to go with my “coffee straight up” graphic tee, oversized taupe trousers and my favorite black blazer.  I’m pretty sure I can speak for everyone, when I say that coffee is the number one accessory for a Monday morning. Listen, it’s dangerous to approach me before I’ve had my necessary dose of caffeine, not to mention it is far from cute. Since I’ve got football on my mind, I decided to give you an outfit play by play: my Banana Republic graphic tee is currently sold out, however there are some pretty awesome alternatives so be sure to check out the link provided. The unbelievably comfortable trousers were a TJ MAXX score, and I tried my hardest to find them but came out much like the Seahawks, a HUGE loser. My blazer is also a Banana Republic purchase its classic fit make it an easy staple. And finally, don’t kill me, BUT my Jessica Simpson heels are from last year and I seriously couldn’t find them anywhere, DON’T worry the similar Sam Edeleman shoes I provided are pretty fabulous.

I wish for you all a short Monday and a strong cup of coffee, good luck out there!
