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!

SUPERMAN’S STOLEN CAPE

Guys, I stole Superman’s cape…ok ok of course I didn’t! But often times my boyfriend describes certain outfits of mine as characters. For instance, when I was wearing a long bohemian summer dress he described me as a disciple of Jesus, or that time I wore a wide sleeved white dress and I reminded him of a character from Emperor’s New Groove. LOL listen, I don’t take any offense, no cruel intentions here,  in fact I find it pretty funny. Some guys just don’t understand certain fashion trends and if it helps him to relate my outfits to certain characters, well that’s perfectly OK. So when I was working on this post I thought “what would Josh think”. Initially I assumed he would say I looked like Little Red Riding Hood until I asked, and to my surprise he said I looked like a strawberry… WELL strawberries are cute! HAHHA, it’s fun to laugh at yourself. Don’t get me wrong, this look is one I love and its simplicity makes it an easy favorite. I layered it over a fitted navy turtleneck with gold button details on the sleeves that add an element of luxury. Plus, it transitions seamlessly from day to night; once the cape comes off it becomes a sleek casual evening look, with the cape it’s fun and charismatic–BEST OF BOTH WORLDS.

I think I learned something from Josh, it’s actually fun to identify with different characters. Next time I wear this cape I’ll be channeling Superman…or a strawberry?
