Outfit: Rain, Rain... Blah, Blah, Blah







umbrella // cape // turtleneck // skirt // thigh-highs (similar) // wellies (last seen here)

Remember when I said us short curvy girls couldn't rock the cape? Well, I lied... kind of. I still believe most capes are unflattering if you aren't tall and slender, but I was presently surprised by the fit of this adorable plaid cape from Nasty Gal.

I was clicking through Pinterest when I stumbled upon it. I don't normally shop at Nasty Gal, but turns out that they actually have some cute pieces (I also love this top). So I decided to go for it, because the red plaid and toggles were too cute not to. I fully expected it to be incredibly unflattering, but I think the placement of the toggles (only fastening the bottom two toggles actually creates a v-neck, which helps elongate your shape) and shorter length of the cape kept the proportions just right.

I took these pictures last week just before Thanksgiving when a cold front brought nothing but rain for two days. Obviously I wore my favorite Hunter Boots and paired them with some thigh-high socks. I completed the look with my new J.Crew Blah, Blah, Blah, umbrella, which I love! It's the perfect statement for a rainy day.


What do you wear to beat the blahs on a cold and rainy day?

  3. I was always weary of the cape as well but you definitely proved short girls can rock it too. Also I'm obsessed with that umbrella, I normally keep one in my work bag since the walk to my car can be a hike. That 'blah blah blah' wording reflects my thoughts at work perfectly, haha.

  6. Capes are an amazing garment for spring and autumn when it is a bit colder but not to much cold. I am a big fan of them. I actually managed to sew one for myself that can be seen on my blog.
