When I get some wide-legged pants, I want to do today’s formula #4, but for now the post prompted me to wear it with what I’ve got. I wore it with a cord skirt and my wool vest that’s so drapey it’s almost a cape to start Christmas shopping today (Don’t judge—I got Advent calendars that might be in transit for a month). What do you think? Honest opinions please—I recall there was some skepticism about those items together when I first got the cape/vest. Because I didn’t get a really great shot, I’m posting several soso ones.

Outfit 2 was worn running some errands and looking at bikes with my son. You know how, in those little videos on sales sites, models sashay out & then turn this way and that, looking oh so attractive & showing the outfit‘s best features? I clearly don’t know how they do it. At least I had my kid use flash so you can tell the black velvet from the blue jeans.
