Capes Aren't Just for Superheroes


Wintertime is Arizona is the best. It feels exactly like fall in the midwest. The leaves start to fall off the trees (FINALLY) and the air is crisp. The most you need to wear is a light jacket or sweater or, in my case, a cape to stay warm. I got this beautiful cherry red cape from ChicWish last year (try this grey one), but this is the first time I have worn it. It got shoved into the back of my closet and I completely forgot about it.

Since dusting it off, I have received so many compliments on it. You can wear this cape with or without a belt. I like it with a belt so that my waist is defined. I paired it with a patterned shirt so that my whole outfit wasn't color blocked.

Try out a cape if you find one you like. It's a unique and stylish alternative to your trusty sweater.

So, I may be getting a tad ahead of myself considering it's still 106 degrees in Phoenix, but I'm already spying my next winter coat - or shall I say CAPE! Pea coat style is usually what catches my eye each winter, but I'm ready for something different. Capes have been around for ages. I'm not sure why all of the sudden I'm wanting one. Maybe I'm watching too many Marvel comic movies?
