Have you ever tried to wear a poncho or cape top and then wear a jacket over it?  Doesn’t work.  You get a bad case of the way-too-much-material-at-the-shoulders-can’t-put-my-jacket-on syndrome.  It’s a horrible disease.  Luckily for you, I’ve found the perfect solution!  Wear a cape over your cape! Ta-da!
 Cape on!…

 … Cape off to reveal another cape! BAM!
I’m laughing because I’m chasing some ducks!

Okay, so I was being WAY silly, but it is annoying to have all that bunching when you’re covering up with another jacket.  Anyhow, ponchos/ cape tops are FIVE GOLD STARS when it comes to comfiness factor.  You could eat your weight in food {and have a food baby} and no one would know under all that material!  Why do you think I wore it to our London tea time?

The Style Rx:  Wear a cape over bulky sweaters or another cape/poncho for an easy, comfy, and warm look!

Okay, are you thanking me for introducing you to Bethany of B Soup yet?!  Isn’t she gorgeous? And she really is a mama!  I’m hoping to look that good when I’m a mama!

    Love the cape on you! I really REALLY wanted a cape earlier this year but when I tried one on I just looked like a big dumpy mess :( I so wish I could pull it off as beautifully as you have.

    Cape on cape – brilliant! hehe I hate wearing capes with jackets because the material gets stuffed into the sleeves so this is ingenius. Looks like you got some highlights in your hair ;)
