1. Capes and ponchos hide post-baby weight. (Golf claps all around.)
2. Superheroes wear capes; ergo, they are awesome.
3. They're comfy. Like, really comfy. A bit like wearing a blanket, only with arm holes.
Here are a few capes that I have my eye on lately. And may have purchased a couple. Oops.
Vintage-Inspired Plaid Cape - Bought this one and L.O.V.E. it!
Turtleneck Poncho Sweater in Cream
Necessary Clothing Plaid Poncho Sweater in Red/Black (30% off sitewide by entering code 2K15)
Nasty Gal Cool It Cape Sweater in Ivory
Super-Soft Cape in Grey Marl - One of my very favorite pieces I've bought all winter, hands down.
Colour-Block Geometric Print Cape
So next time you find yourself shopping online for another boring old sweater, (okay, sweaters are pretty great), think "cape" or "poncho" instead.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go help a very excited toddler assemble her Minnie Mouse Playhouse Indoor Tent. (Lord, help me...)
