MOMMA LOVES… capes – they’re in and they’re spectacular


Had to go a bit dramatic with the cape… It’s so much fun to wear and you really could wear it with just about anything.


This Lavish Alice cape is a fun addition to my wardrobe because I get all the drama without the hefty price tag.


These capes are great for transitioning between seasons! Might feel like wishful thinking for some of you east coasters but spring is coming!


That’s right, I’m fully on board with the capes trend that has emerged, and I’m not talking about the superman kind.  I’m taking about the incredibly chic look Lupita Nyong’o reinvented at last year’s Golden Globes, in Ralph Lauren, and which we have also seen on a-list celebs with style as diverse as Katy Perry and Gwyneth Paltrow.  These capes are incredibly chic and have the look and feel of a blazer but in a more feminine, sophisticated way.  Perched on top of your shoulders it’s the perfect alternative to jackets and shawl – super modern yet lady like, they’re truly a must have.  I have been waiting to do a post on these capes for sometimes and only now have we started to see more and more options in a range of price point proving these babies aren’t going anywhere.  Also, while winter starts to fade a way and spring comes to town these sleeveless pieces can tradition you seamlessly between seasons.  Check out some of my favorite capes that can transform and elevate your look.
