just thinking of the right words to say

song of the day: 'the promise' by when in rome
i found this cape at goodwill last friday. i love it! and it came into my life at just the right time. i'm seemingly battling some nasty cold/hideous sore throat and the cape acts like a stylish snuggie. and with this sickness has come brain cloudiness. i can't seem to think in coherent sentences right now. i've just been drinking loads of tea and gone through half a bag of cough drops. ugh. ready for winter to be over!!!!!!!!

Ah, I love the cape! I've been scouring the thrift stores for a good cape, but no luck and I think it's too late in the season now. Oh well, I'll just have to live vicariously through you :]

Wow can't really believed you got that cape from goodwill! it's adorable, and so IN right now, although I expect them to stick around for a long time, cause I'm crazy about them, they are perfect snuggies! ... Love the mix of patterned tights and the cape! looks cute!

Good cape find!
And your comment about me wearing boots inside and heels outside and that being me... kinda warmed my heart. Because that is me and I love that you can see that...xo

when I see pieces as awesome as this cape on other people's blogs I'm always like: FRICK! Why didn't I get there (ie. the goodwill in this case) first! Which is stupid. Because I live far far away. But that is still how I feel.

awesome cape. awesome outfit. I keep forgetting I can wear shorts with tights. And I even have ones with an elastic waist band (not maternity, though...you'd be surprised at the amount of clothing about with elastic waistbands that ISN'T maternity wear).
