IRL Update - Café Capri in Wool Plaid

 
Can I just say how much I love this?!


I love the pants. I love the cardi (it's the wool cashmere France cardigan from 2007, please don't wear out!). Love the shoes (Marlene Crisscross Platform Heels from about a year ago). And how can I not love a white shirt that fits?


I'm 5'2" so the pants are not so capri on me but I like them that way.


By the way, the pants can be switched out with the Silk Pleat Skirt in Crimson Floral (that has been getting a lot of recent blog love) for another look. The cardi makes a perfect pairing with the skirt. Sorry for not posting a pic with the skirt but do not believe the online description that says "falling just below the knee" because it hits right at the top of my knee caps. And I'm not that tall.

  6. ADG - oh shucks thanks. I get excited when I see the word capri describing pants that don't come in petites. Same for jackets that are described as bracelet sleeves.
