Happy Sunday everyone! How has your weekend been? Yesterday I went to my friend Katelyn’s (last week’s style crush!) baby shower! It was great being able to celebrate the soon to be mama! This is the first friend I’ve ever had who has been pregnant, so it’s been really neat to hear about her experience and learn more about pregnancy from her. 🙂 Can’t wait for her little one to arrive! I haven’t been feelin’ so hot lately, though (pesky Crohn’s), so today I’m just chillllin’ on the couch. That’s actually my plan for the entire week!
CAPE (c/o) (this style also comes in brown-plus she has a ton of other styles!) | SHIRT, similar here and here | JEANS | SHOES, similar here, here, and here | BAG (only $20) | SUNGLASSES | EARRINGS (on serious sale for $12) | LIP COLOR
In case you didn’t catch it on Facebook or Instagram, I have the privilege of partnering up with three very talented ladies that I went to college with! I’m super excited to feature all of their awesome designs over the next few blog posts. I’m kicking off this little NC designers series with this wool cape from Sparkle Mae! My friend Amanda is the owner, designer, and maker of all of the super chic and classy capes from Sparkle Mae.
Ya’ll know I love to layer, and this cape is absolutely perfect for layering and getting you through the seasons. On top of versatility in the weather, they’re also super versatile in style! I’m loving the idea of wearing it with a midi or slip dress and some pumps as the weather gets a bit warmer. 🙂 But for this look, I wanted to keep things dressy casual, so I wore my cape over an oversized white button down, lightly distressed jeans, black peep toe booties, and a black quilted bag. As I mentioned, she has all sorts of different styles, but I’m wearing the Ada cape. I looove that it’s belted around the waist-super flattering!
Be sure you checkout the online Sparkle Mae store. So many gorgeous pieces! I also have one of her bridal aprons that she gave me at my bridal shower over 2 years ago! Aaaand if you sign up for her mailing list you get 15% off your entire first order. Who doesn’t love a discount? 😉 Plus, you know you’ll be supporting a home grown business, and I think that’s pretty awesome. Huge huge thanks to Amanda for this absolutely gorgeous cape! I’m seriously in love with it! Hope you guys enjoyed this look and Amanda’s designs! Can’t wait to share the next lady with you on Thursday!
