Carrying On In Capes

the clothes horse, fashion, style, vintage, retro, cape, beige, neutrals, grey jeans, maroon, booties, redhead, seashell ring
I had thought it was time to retire my winter coats and capes for the year in favor of lighter layers...but I was mistaken. Cold, blustery weather and even snow flurries have shown me the error of my assumptions. Still, I am enjoying all these fall and winter garments, so it is not too much of a burden to continue wearing them for awhile longer. Next thing you know, I will be building fires in the hearth and eating comfort food; i.e. preparing for hibernation...

I love your ring. I think it is my favorite one of yours so far.

Draft of Vintage said...

The shell seems to blend right into the cape- they seem to match you perfectly!

I love that photo of your hands and the hem of the cape--- really beautiful composition... and of course the gif is very cool- the grass is hypnotizing...

Raquel said...

So happy your cape got to come out for another adventure. First a city cape, now a country cape. Does she have a preference?

Cara said...

I just found a cape at the thrift store, and that would be a perfect way to wear it! Sadly it's too hot down here for them now.

That ring is so perfect and beautiful.

Eli said...

That animated gif of you is absolute perfection

I have a similar shell ring that a friend brought back for me from her trip to sweden I think. Except that the points are sanded off, it looks like a swirl thats inside. I love that people turn things we take for granted into beautiful objects

Maeko said...

I've always wanted a good cape, and I've never been able to secure one.

By the time I'll actually have the budget one, I'll already be in Hawaii, where there is 100% no need for it.

I love this gif. Do you take multiple photos on your Canon when you set the timer? I need to do one of those. My nikon doesn't do it. Or it does, but I've lost the manual.

Maeko. thereafterish.

Charmalade said...

So here I was, reading your blog, admiring your photos (especially the gif!), business as usual. When I noticed that-- egad! Pants! You're wearing pants! A rarity it seems, but you're looking good as ever. :)

I'm looking for shoes like these for ages, and still, in Hungary I just can't find anything!

sincerelyangela said...

Liz said...

Damsels said...

i levo the wind blowing in your pictures.. iwhs i was there truly .. here in nyc the weather is 80 degrees ! can you believe and im struggling to work thru my spring wardrobe while i see girls and women walking in flip flops and shorts.

a la Modest said...

It seems a little warmer here compared to what others are experiencing. I sure hope it gets a little chillier in MD because it definitely feels like summer already! I want my layers!

Your shoes are shiny and well kept. Tell me, they must be new!

Rachel Ravitch said...

Rad shell ring! Goes great with the cape! Fun!

♥Lola said...

Love the seashell ring, it's so pretty :) We're coming into winter now and it's still 29c where I am. Although we would never even get close to below 10c in Winter. I would love to someday go somewhere really cold!

Winnie said...

Oh those boots are gorgeous. Love the gif with the wind too, captures that moment perfectly!

Rachel said...

love the ring! and the cape of course. I woke up this morning with snow on the ground. crazy!

I don't even know how to say how much I love your blog. All of your pictures and little animations and the layout give such a cozy feeling, as if you have really personalized your corner of the web. I feel like I'm stepping into a really fashionable Victorian sitting room.
It's so sweet. You're a real inspiration.

With a cape that wonderful it's no wonder you don't mind the delay of spring. Those boots are pretty fabulous as well.

Jeans again! (: Rebecca I miss your remix and your picture-an-hour posts!

Kimberellie said...

Wow, you are beautiful! The second to last pic of you, gorgeous! I love this set of pics. The wind in the grass is so amazing. And that last pic? Cool. Oh, and the outfit? Love the cape. And oh, no! I've been eyeing booties like those (except in black) from Naturalizer for some time wondering if I should get them. I think seeing them here has tipped the scales. I must have them now. ;-)
