Is it just me or is there something seriously romantic about a cape moment?  It just feels so over the top but in the best way.  My Dad gave me this cape for Christmas several years ago {yes my  Dad is fly but he shops with my sisters assistance so…} and I get excited to pull it out year after year.  I thought it was the perfect piece to pair on top of this Left on Houston sweater dress because sometimes when you’re wearing something a bit bulky, adding a jacket will do you no favors.

I also look at capes as a chic alternative to a blanket. Hear me out…have you ever been so cozily wrapped in a blanket that you want to take it with you when you leave the house, but in an effort to avoid looking like a grown Charlie Brown character you leave it behind? Get a cape and you’ll never face this predicament again.
