As it turns out, you can mix up your office style without pinging HR’s “Dressed Inappropriately” radar. Enter: the blazer cape.
I started jonesing for a blazer cape after seeing it pop up in a few fashion mags. Want, need, must have. Finally pulled the trigger on this gorgeous and suuuuuuper affordable version from Nasty Gal. (Seriously, under $75 for a blazer? Yes. And with a cape option? Double yes.)
I wore mine to the office with classic trousers and a sheer plaid Portofino shirt from Express, working in a little gold from BaubleBar and a little red with a pointed toe pump. What I love about the blazer cape is it works both as a 9-5 option and over a t-shirt + baggy boyfriend jeans for a spin on weekend chic. (Bonus: it also comes in ivory and burgundy. I want them all.)
Shop the look:
This blazer cape is definitely going in heavy rotation. I can’t wait to wear it with holiday dresses, cozy knits, sweater leggings + boots… So many possibilities. And speaking of Express, they’ve started their Black Friday sale early– shop now to get 50% off everything. Every. Single. Thing. And free shipping on all orders. Goooo!

I can’t believe The Blogger Collective launches in less than a week. Time flies when you’re crazy busy launching a blogger group built on the foundation of support + education. Nikki and I are so pumped; the response has been really overwhelming and lovely. Interested? Apply here.
