After borrowing my sister’s Madewell cape several times over the holidays I decided to take the plunge and invest in my own. It is surprisingly warm and fun to wear…arms free is the way to be!

Been pairing this baby with everything from dresses to leather pants, and in honor of the uncharacteristically warm weather we had this weekend, I decided to bust out my trusty quilted shorts. That’s right, shorts in January — only in California!

    You’re right. Only in CA can you have 80 degrees one week, and it drops to 60 the following week! I love the cape and handbag!

    There’s a certain sultriness when a woman wears a coat/cape and nylons and you can’t see what she has on underneath because her skirt/shorts are shorter than her coat. LOVE this look!

    You rock ankle boots like no one else! I always feel like they cut my legs in an unflattering day…perhaps the trick is having legs for days like you? ;)

    I love the mix of neutrals and subtle prints here! So pretty!

    Laura Reply:

    Thanks, Santina!! I am sure you would rock these boots. And I think it is just the short shorts/tall boots combo that makes my legs look long, ha! :)

    Either way, thanks for the super sweet comment and hope I you are well!! xo
