Cheap Trick ~ Floral Print Dress & Cape Coat

by Kéla Walker

If you haven’t noticed, as of late, I love wearing my coat as a cape.  Something so simple feels so chic and stylish, not to mention kool.

For a moment in time I was on the hunt for a great cape coat and then it occurred to me,  “Why invest in a partial coat (really that’s all a cape is)  when I can just wear any one of my coats as a cape?” DUH. So that’s just what I have been doing as of late.
This coat is another one from my packed kloset (that combats my outerwear pet peeve)  that I rarely wear. You can’t see the details but there is beautiful beading on the collar and along the closure line.  It was the perfect topper to this mirror print floral dress, adding an extra layer of style to the look.  Speaking of which I was tired of wearing invisible leg (same color tights and shoes blurring together as one) so I switched out no-brainer black pumps for these grey ones.  I love Love LOVE how they pop with this dress and make the print jump.
