The Caped Crusader

Who doesn’t love a cape! Wearing a cape instantly amps up any outfit, no matter what it is! You can throw on a cape with a sweatsuit and you instantly look pulled together! I own several capes. Most of them are outerwear pieces so this one is a bit different. I don’t think there’s anything too interesting about the overall look until the cape gets added. How do you feel about capes? Until the next time, God Bless!

Me and My Baby

Sharing this outfit post with my Baby. Wide leg pants are trending right now so I decided to dig these oldies but goodies out of the archives. Several years ago I had a thing for wide legs. All different kinds. Bell bottoms, flares, straight, you name it, I have them. And in several different fabrics. This pair is more of a trouser cut. The thing with wide leg pants is that they are mostly made to be very long in length. Now that’s ok for someone like make who has the height to carry them (with a heel of course), but could be a problem some others. I’ve even seen some girls wearing them so long that they drag the ground, ugh. I think of might have done that one time or two but not purposely. It was just a last minute outfit decision and I didn’t realize the pants were so long and by then it was too late! But in my opinion I think you should take them to a tailor and have them altered to fit. When you do, take along a pair of shoes with the heel height that you will be wearing with the pants so that the length can be adjusted appropriately. Fit can make or break an outfit and it’s always better to have properly fitted clothing even if you need to spend a little extra on alterations. As for Javar’s outfit, this is one of the rare occasions when he isn’t in athletic wear. For the last few years he has gained this aversion for jeans or anything that isn’t athletic (ie; sweatpants/track pants). So wearing these khaki trousers is “getting dressed” to him. Of course I am always trying to “pressure” him into wearing jeans and a shirt/sweater or something else besides sweats. But I am slowly beginning to throw in the towel on that one. Anyway, hope you had a great weekend. God Bless!
