i have a love/hate relationship with capes. okay, really i love them, adore them actually. but can some retailer please make a coat that fits over a cape? i have all these capes and i stare at them wanting to put them on and brunch in them but then realize its about 5 degrees outside and i need a coat to go over it. on this particular day, i literally squeezed my cape under my coat, but it wasn’t pretty. anywho, i think they are the best weekend wear when you are running errands and such, you can throw them on with some skinnies and brunch to your hearts content. any capes your loving lately? and has anyone found a coat that fits over these capes? please share, i’d love to hear!

you know when you are looking for that specific piece and you just can’t find the perfect match? that’s exactly how i felt about camo pants. they were either too light, too thin or not in my price range. i was just about to give up when i saw these guys through the window of an urban outlet around the corner from me. could it be? i had to at least give them a try! yep, 5 minutes later i knew i finally found them — and i’m certainly glad i waited (isn’t that the best feeling?). i feel the same about these pants as i do with my leopard loafers and that is they can pretty much work as a neutral. dress them down as i did with a sweater and booties or get fancy with a top knot (which i sadly cannot master), some killer high heels, black top and a bauble. how do you guys feel about camo, are you in or are you out?
