wearing // velvet leggings and a cape

Sometimes, the addition of one spectacular item of clothing is enough to make even the most basic lazy outfit something to blog about. Take this outfit, for instance. Underneath this gorgeous cape, all I'm wearing is a tee shirt and some leggings (basically my go-to lounging outfit), but then I laced up my Litas, threw on the cape, and added the hat before hustling out the door, making the lazy outfit something worthy for a day out and about downtown Sturgeon Bay. This tee was a gift from a friend, and while I usually don't dig the 'fuck everyone' outlook on life, I do appreciate the random print and the subtlety of the message, haha. Also, in regards to hair, I bought a spool of plain black ribbon a while back, and that ribbon is the absolute best for replacing blah hair ties when it comes to braids, pigtails, and low ponytails. I always get lots of compliments on the bows, and it never hurts to feel like the subject of that Cars' song...It's not the perfume that you wear / it's not the ribbons in your hair / I don't mind you comin' here / and wasting all my time...

Oh, and if you were wondering what the heck all those things in the background are, they are speakers! I'm standing in the parking area of the Skyway Drive In Theater! They open this weekend, yay!

this outfit is AMAZING- and now I can't live without a cape in my life. I'm always amazed with the power of hats in that respect- sometimes all I have to do is pop a hat on and my outfit goes from uninspired to amazing. Also, your comment on me being french and smoking while writing killed me, hahah. That was wonderful. :)

you are totally rocking that cape! I love how one well-chosen and unique piece can add so many new dimensions to a wardrobe. it'd be fun to see you match the cape with more of what is in your closet - you should do a follow up post!

Loving this vintage look – you pull it off so well.

I agree – It is a really witchy, edgy look, especially with the Fuck Everyone tee underneath. Stunning and daring! Love it!
