Oh man alive – I found a plaid capelet and it is amazing! This particular capelet has been in my Gwynnie Bee closet for a couple months, so when it showed up I flipped out.

As soon as I put this on, I had that Olivia Pope feeling (anyone else kind of “meh” on Scandal lately?) Plaid and a cape tends to do that to me. This could be worn with denim or trousers or whatever. I thought I was going to purchase this from my subscription, but it's not something I'd see getting a lot of wear out of, especially as it gets warmer. I'm trying to be extremely thoughtful at what I add permanently to my closet (declutter mode here), and this didn't pass the multiple wear test. Though I do wish I had kept it a little longer to try it over my favorite black dress. I might add it back to my Gwynnie Bee closet just in case it comes back to me, but there are lots of other items I want to try so it's not a priority.
Also a quick note about the shoes. Ted & Muffy is the brand formerly know as Duo – the ones that make stunning leather boots by calf size. They re-branded and still have the amazing boots. But they also have wide width shoes. I love red flats, and these have a gold bee on them and thought they were cute. Scored on clearance! One note about ordering from them: they're in the UK and return shipping is expensive. So be mindful of that when you buy.
