With it being February, it's only fitting that I post a red outfit. I used to get really into the whole Valentine's Day thing: buying a ridiculous outfit that I would only wear once, panicking that it was too cold to wear a mini dress, and ultimately setting miserably high expectations for what, in reality, usually turns out to be a typical drab-dregs of Kansas winter day. However, there is a good chance I will be wearing this blanket cape by Shop LocalE on Valentine's Day because I've been wearing it non-stop ever since I got it! I'm serious. I have it on right now!
I've been trying to inject more color into my wardrobe, and this cape fits the ticket in bold buffalo check red. It also abides by one of my favorite wardrobe life hacks: looking classy and collected while actually being comfortable and lazy.
Of course, I am biased towards Shop LocalE--for good reason! Emily and Elizabeth (@fashioncolumntwins) have in Shop LocalE the perfect business concept for a local clothing business--quality fabrics, unique designs and a great price point! I first met Emily and Elizabeth shooting their super cute and unique sequin and beaded hometown + sports team fan wear; and now I'm loving their branching out into different types of pieces like this cape.
