Cape Cardigan and Skinny Flares

The only thing better than a chunky cardigan, is a cape cardigan! These cozy garments make wrapping up in a blanket, in public, totally acceptable! With a trip to Sedona quickly approaching, I’m starting to collect desert friendly pieces, and this cape cardigan is one of them.

My favorite five minute outfit is black on black with a pop of color. The color can come in many shapes or forms. Maybe it is your shoes, lipstick, or purse. In this instance, the turquoise cape cardigan was my splash of color. Underneath I paired skinny flares (this is not a typo) with a cold-shoulder mock-neck top from Current Clothing. When your ensemble isn’t amenable to a necklace, a good compromise is to wear a top with an interesting neckline. I accessorized with a gold tassel bracelet and fab floppy hat (thanks to the ladies of Jest Jewels!).

About those skinny flares…where have they been my whole life?! I cannot adequately describe my excitement when I came across ’em at H&M. A tapered leg like your go-to skinny jeans, flaring out to a modest bell bottom. The perfect happy medium if you ask me! This pair features distressed details and are only $34.99.

      Thank you Christa! It would make for a good layering piece for the Connecticut winters also! Just throw a big parka over it. 🙂

    […] about the outfit…if it looks familiar, you have a good memory. I last wore the cape here. Anyway, with Sedona as my final destination, I thought the Southwestern print was very fitting. […]
