Wednesday's Wardrobe: Low Light Variety Pack

I feel like I hit a fashion road bump this week, and am only feeling 'meh' about these outfits.  Actually maybe its just the pictures of said outfits I'm feeling meh about.  Unfortunately, the cave-like lighting of our apartment does none of these pieces (or their walking hanger) justice.  Is anyone else finding it difficult to find daylight for picture taking?  Bring on Daylight Savings (its Saturday), let there be light!

I embraced shorts with opaque tights last winter, and haven't looked back.  I wore this to dinner with friends last Friday.  I also wanted to wear my new cape! I finally found this one on Ruelala after trying on many, many capes including your picks and didn't like any of them (on me.)  The rounded armholes and hemline, deep pockets and furry hood are so warm and cozy.

Cape - Hilary Radley via Ruelala, Black Sweater/Purple Sweater/Shorts - Ann Taylor Loft, Tights - Target, Shoes - DSW

And now I present the worst reason to pick out an outfit, ready? It matches your $1.99 witch hair clip for Halloween.  Dont' say I didn't warn you. I thought this holiday clip was office appropriate, so I picked out this multi-colored paisley print dress to wear with it.  I love this dress so much, it was a gift from my mom for finishing my first marathon...see why I ran two more of them?  Giant bags of clothes at the end!

Dress/Necklaces - Gifts, Tights/Hair Clip - Target, Boots - Steve Madden via DSW


Anxiously awaiting our trick o' treaters.  We only had 4, but they were cute! 
This sweater is such a bright bubblegum pink and has a sweet zipper in the back, which I'm not showing you because I don't like my posterior at the moment.  I picked up these olive pants at the Columbus Day Loft sale for $29.99, and they fit like a dream.  My vertically challenged self feels almost long legged in them, I say success!

Sweater/Pants - Ann Taylor Loft, Flower Pin - H&M, Pearls - Gift from the rents

So my husband/live in photog kept telling me to hike up my pants for a shoe shot and I fell into a fit of laughter as he kept saying "higher, no higher" until I was at full high water length.

One last funny for you.  I've been wearing my cape A LOT because its cute with everything, or so I thought.  After sweating it out at the gym I couldn't fathom putting my work clothes back on, so I threw my cape on over my shorts and tee and headed home.  Too bad my shorts are WAY shorter than my cape and I looked like a flasher on public transit.  If you need visual evidence, I offer you the following for a mid-week chuckle!


Have a good end of the week sweets!

FLASHER!!! You're so indecent, Cara! :)

Your cape is so pretty! That's a cute alternative to another winter coat. I just realized I don't have a winter coat! But I think I have a few months before it gets really cold. And I think your witch hat is awesome and spooky. We didn't get any trick or treaters this year. :(

HAHAHA, i totally cracked up with your high-water pants shot.... my boyfriend does the same thing. he is a filmmaker, artist, photographer, and takes his job with my blog very seriously. more seriously than me, probably.

today is already stressful, so i definitely needed that laugh. love the nude shoes, the olive pants, and the sweater, a darling look.

I usually have to hike up my pants for people to see my feet in wide-leg pants, too! Oh, the woes of people with little feet (and big pants).

Mae said...

Hee-hee. You are too funny! The cape looks fab, even with your gym clothes, which really proves how great it is. It's the perfect finish to your first shorts look.
