Can I tell you just how happy I am that capes are back in style?
|Cape: Boohoo (Available here)|
I had a cape style jacket several years back, and I wore that thing to death.
|Dress: Eva Mendes for New York & Company (Available here)|
This fall, I’m resisting the urge to buy up every cape style piece I can get my hands on. While I’m not buying all the capes, I have indulged on a few caped items, including this cape jacket from boohoo.com that I recently featured on my Halloween post.
Today, I’m back wearing it again with all black, but this time, I went for an easier silhouette by adding it with a belted trapeze dress. The sleeves of the dress add a little warmth and coverage, but the sheerness helps provide a lightness that sets the black pieces off from one another.
|Boots: Payless (old)|
Like a lot of you across the States, we are having winter temperatures right now, so I paired these pieces with tights and high boots to add some additional warmth. It’s hard to tell in the pics, but you can actually see a sprinkling of snow on the ground behind me. Yikes!! I’m not ready for winter!
|Tights: The Limited|
Taking pics after work has proven difficult since the end of Daylight Savings Time. It’s always dark, so I have to get better at taking photos on the weekend – the only shot I have at getting light!!
The darkness is hiding some of the details of this look that I would have loved to have shown off better. :-/

Cuff: The Limited

I just talked on the blog yesterday about my move towards minimalist accessorizing, but for this look, I’m actually accessorized quite a bit with lots of shiny silver and pewter metals. The same look, with more blingy jewelry, would be perfect for an upcoming holiday party.
I wore this look to work yesterday, which was possibly a little dressy for the office, but sometimes, it’s fun to be the diva….which a cape most definitely makes me feels like.
Are you a fan of the cape trend?
