i never play without my cape

Cape (worn previously like this and this), Necklace & Bracelet- Thrifted; Pants- Old Navy; Boots- Aldo; Ring-Gifted; Nail Polish-Chestnut by Sally Hansen
I never thought I was a cape woman until I found this green beauty at a charity shop in the UK a couple of years ago.  I love how you a cape is something you can just throw on yet it heightens the look of an outfit, especially when it's a bright colour or fun pattern.  Today I'm linking up to Silverstyle's Trending Through the Decades- Capes Edition & Spunky Chateau's Thursdays are for Thrifters!

{Sorry these photos are lack lustre- the days are getting shorter so by the time my man and I get coordinated the sun has gone to sleep so my white wall, doorknobs and mirror decor will have to do for now.  Outdoor photos of me wearing this cape (with bright red hair) can be found here.}  


  1. Girl, I love the cape but your hands are so freakin beautiful...lucky. Nice booty and boots too. Dawn Suitcase vignettes xo don't think I am a perv. I just like to give credit where it's due. xo

  2. that's a beautiful cape, I love the colour! I can't resist anything green but I don't see it much at the thrift stores. Lovely accessories, the necklace is really cute!


  3. Looove this outfit! I've been trying to find the perfect cape but no luck yet :(

  4. I could never pull off wearing a cape, but this looks so good on you. Must be your charisma that carries the day!

  6. alright, you inspired to me to grab my cape out of the closet
    i got it last year, but have only worn it once
    i felt kind of stupid in it honestly, i will give it another go after seeing you in yours!
    love the ring btw

  7. I love that cape, it's so much fun and that color looks amazing on you! And I wouldn't have thought to layer the necklace over it, but I LOVE it!

  8. That cape is so pretty! Love the color of your nails too! Thanks for linking up!

  9. That's a beautiful cape! I also thrifted one recently. Though mine is a thicker knit of a wool blend, so it'll be some time before it gets pulled out for wear.
