Guess what? I’m officially on Spring Break! Unfortunately, Spring Break in law school is only worth celebrating because it gives you more time to study. Still, I did take advantage of a little off-duty time on Saturday and enjoyed brunch with friends. As usual, I wore an oversized top to leave room for maximum deliciousness (hello, croissant French toast). And how crazy is it that this necklace has ALL the same colors as this shirt? I got them at totally different stores a year apart. When I discovered everything they had in common, it seemed rude not to let them hang out together. Just call me a fashion matchmaker.

Fun fact: The kickass terrace above is attached to the building where we had our wedding reception! Unfortunately, it was 98 degrees (not an exaggeration) that day, so everyone stayed inside. This Saturday, though, it was pretty chilly. I just can’t win at weather. But I can win at fashion matchmaking. So there’s that.

It’s only about once a year that I bust out this little “capelet” thing. “Capelet” is the best suggestion I’ve had for what exactly to call it. It’s more than a scarf but less than a sweater. It’s sort of like a cape, but there are no arm holes. I wouldn’t quite call it outerwear, but I wouldn’t call it underwear either. WHAT ARE YOU, LITTLE KNIT THING?! Maybe its mystique is part of why I’ve kept it around for 5+ years.

Despite its awkward identity crisis, this little guy actually came in handy over the weekend. I wore this outfit on Saturday, which was a busy day spent in several different places with different temperatures. This sweater isn’t very warm – but I just loved the color with my tan boots – so when I was in a well-heated space, I could take the capelet off and be comfortable. But in chilly restaurants (I went to 2 of them), I kept it on to stay toasty. And when I went outside, I just adjusted it up and forward (wearing it more like an infinity scarf) so I could fit a coat on top. Well done, strange garment, well done.

Oh hey! Don’t forget about the latest giveaway (and the fabulous outfit that went with it)!
