A cape for all occasions

Finally, after I'm sure you forgot all about it, I wanted to show off my red Pendleton wool cape.  First time I found a cape small enough to fit me, most just swallow me whole.
 I paid $14 for it.
 The label tells us it's from  the 1970's.
The pink buttons tell us it's been Kristafied!
The dress I bought last year while visiting Vix in the UK and the leggings are from of course Kiss Me Kitty!
 That is the sun shining and this weekend it should make it all the way to 70 degrees!
 That's why I'm squeezing in this jacket post.  I have one more to share.  I picked this one up at Target.
  It was marked down from $60 to $20 and I love it with my hair.
 BUT let's get one thing straight, I'm ok if this is the last time I wear it for a while :)

Both the cape and coat are gorgeous! I love the vibrancy of the red and I've seen a similar coat over here in blue :)

Oh my word, both the cape and the jacket are just too gorgeous. I'm so envious of your sunshine, I'm desperately fed up of grey skies. Xx

Great buys! The cape is too cute and kinda reminds me of a candy apple. Love it.

Oh that Pendleton cape is beautiful, Krista, you look like a foxy little super heroine! You're right, some capes have such a ton of fabric they can be hard to wear, but that one is just right.
The pink floral trench is fabulous, very you. As ever, you rock bright colours - look, you made the sun shine, hurray! Now come over to the UK and work your magic here, it's STILL snowing! xxxxx

I love the color of your hair! That's exactly the color I want for my hair but my husband won't let me color it. Red is my favorite color, you look great in it. I am following you from Trapani, Sicily.

Tyya's dad won't take anything befitting at the set aside - no ice cream, no bon-bons, no cookies. But when the saleslady puts a valuation sticker on Tyya's nose, Daddy is decisively laboured to suborn something allowable
