{outfit} Caped Crusader

I wore this outfit last weekend for a very busy day.  I started off grocery shopping, then headed to  Roundabout Resale where, luckily, I didn't find anything I liked. Then I went to the Historical Christmas Barn with my sister and her boyfriend with the intention of buying some adorable Hot Skwash velvet pumpkins and ended up buying a fun reindeer ornament, Comet, by Patience Bruster.  Sadly they didn't have any of the small pumpkins in the colors I want (purple & maroon.) After that it was off to Marshalls and Trader Joes.  The day ended by going home and carving pumpkins with the family! I made a Harry Potter pumpkin, he's so cute - see!

I took the opportunity to wear a fun new cuff that was sent to my by Fibi and Clo, it is so "me" because it has a lion on it and we all know what that means - GRYFFINDOR! Ha ha. It always goes back to Harry Potter.  Anyway, they recently launched a closed shoe line with a few of adorable ballerina flats. My favorite is the leopard, of course.  They are mainly known for their super cool line of sandals which come in a wide range of styles. The lovely folks over at Fibi & Clo also sent me these amazing Monoco sandals, such a shame that it's too cold to wear them at the moment. But I can wear them walking around the house until it's warm enough (see below!)

Cape: b chyll (Roundabout Resale), Hoodie: Hollister, Jeans: Free People, Boots: Eighteen68 'Megan' (Gilt), Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Saks Friends & Family Sale),  Sunglasses: Marc by Marc Jacobs (Shopbop) gift card, Watch: Skagen (Rue La La), Rings: vintage & Mom's, Necklace: Geoclassics, Lion Cuff c/o Fibi & Clo,

A couple shots of the sandals:

* I received the cuff and sandals for the purpose of this post, but all opinions are my own.


  1. I like the hoodie layered under the cape, that is so cute, and your new little reindeer is adorable. I love buying ornaments and always look forward to decorating the tree.

  4. Wow, those shoes are insane! And I love your carved pumpkins - I didn't do that this year and am really kicking myself now for it. It's always so much fun!

  5. Amazing outfit and I'm drooling over that bag.

  6. The cuff and shoes are beautiful!

  7. I've never owned a cape, I feel like I'd be cold wearing it or that it makes me look bigger.


  8. The cape is such a cute piece and perfect for a busy day! Your HP pumpkin is just the cutest thing!

  9. That cape is so nice! It looks super soft and almost like a cardigan only it's real drapey!

  10. You know, I never had any opinion on capes before, but I'm really beginning to love them, especially when paired with a great boot! Also those sandals are amazing. They make me want to take some kind of tropical vacation!

  11. That cape was a major score, just perfect! Loving that bag too!!
