The weather in Texas is seriously so indecisive lately you never know if you need a coat, a tank top, rain boots, or all three in one day. I have always lived here and you think I would be accustomed to this but it seems I spend too much time watching The Batchelor (don’t judge), This is Us, and Project Runway and not enough time on the weather channel. I am usually not a TV person but this weather has me indoors!
For the days when the weather changes without notice, a cape is a great solution. It covers enough to keep you warm but is airy enough to keep you from sweating. Capes are a great piece for layering and make for a beautiful silhouette. An added benefit is they are tummy friendly and I can always appreciate a garment like that! After all, when you have curves, sometimes you want to hide them.
I decided to give a little Valentine’s Day inspiration for my look today. I am obsessed with hearts and just can’t get enough of them this time of year. I paired my heart heels and bag with a black and white ensemble. This vintage caplet completed the look. This outfit is a nice combo for Valentine’s Day and can be paired with flats for a mom’s night out with kids.
To see more caplet looks- you can see my caplet styled for work here and a casual look for the rain here. I have put together some of my favorite caplets of the season below. Have a “cape” day loves!
