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)!
It’s the Real-Life Remix…
