Spring Into Capes

cap + red pants

I have always wanted to purchase a cape, so when the opportunity came along to review one from TBDress I was very excited! Unfortunately this one is not very well made, and the black lining looks very cheap up close. The fabric is pretty stretchy though, so at least it is comfy. Sometimes you get lucky with lower-priced items, this time around it did not pay off.

Anyway, I absolutely LOVE this weather. I could soak it up all day except that I’m in the office from 8-5. I really want to purchase this tote in black and coral as well, but still have my eye on a tote like this. For now, this style definitely works, and I love the striped inside! I am hoping this weather continues for GOOD, but not jinxing it 🙂 Have a good Tuesday!

This past weekend was the perfect opportunity to break out my new Zara ankle boots. It was a little bit chilly on Sunday, so I decided it was a good idea to wear these and keep my feet warm.  Anyway, I love this cardigan my little sister got me for Christmas from Christopher &  Banks … YUP you read that correctly… this is from Christopher & Banks! It just goes to show you never know where you are going to find something great!

Floral Blazer

Floral Blazer 9

This past weekend my older sister, her fiance and my parents were in town to take care of some wedding tasks. The wedding is taking place in downtown Minneapolis in October, so they get to travel here to get everything planned. I LOVE it because that means I don’t have to travel and I still get to see my family more this year. Win, win WIN! Anyway, to run errands such as choosing the groom’s tuxedo, taking a look at the chapel and wedding photo opportunities (and grabbing a mid afternoon beer), I thought it would be a great time to wear (and show off) my new floral blazer. I paired it with plain white t-shirt (borrowed from my boyfriend), my teal skinny jeans and mint pumps. With some jewelry accents, like my favorite Lia Sophia bracelets and this gorgeous mint chain link bracelet from Sira & Mara, everything felt just right!

Do you own a floral blazer? How would you style it? I am definitely trying to figure out new ways to wear it, but I think it will be versatile piece.
