OOTD: The Cape

fashion for lunch blog

The Cape

Don’t you just love an cape?! The world thinks you have made a massive effort and taken a fashion risk, but actually, they are risk-free. They are easy to wear, comfortable and cosy. It’s basically like wearing a blanket, without being judged. My new cape is by Boden, it called my name from afar with it’s cute peter pan collar, classic grey with contrasting yellow lining. Lovely!

The Boots

These boots have turned into my everyday shoe of choice. Once again, they are from Boden, they are black suede with a low heel and they are insanely comfortable. I have walked miles in these shoes and they have never once even rubbed my little toe! I couldn’t resist showing the bright yellow lining behind the zips, they sort of match the lining in my cape! By the way, if you look closely and you will see zips are marked with ‘YKK’. It’s always worth noting if your clothes and accessories use YKK zips as they are really good, they cost a little more to the brand, but they are really sturdy and rarely break. It’s a nice little sign of quality production.

The Sunglasses

It’s starting to get chilly, but the sun is still low and often bright. I thought I had retired my *fun* sunglasses for the year, but with the cape these round Wildfox sunglasses took on kind of a 60’s-mod-space-race feel. I’m into that!
