Cute Outfit of the Day: The 2011 Way to Wear a Cape

cape: Goodwill $5.99
blouse: Goodwill $3.49
skirt: Volunteers of America $1.99
riding boots: Etienne Aigner via Ebay $20
Total Cost: $31.47

This year capes are more popular than ever! Capes have been around forever though so I was sure I could find one at the thrift store! And I did! I got this vintage knit one at Goodwill several months ago. I just love the color!
When I think about capes like this one I almost always see them with a plaid skirt and knee socks. I'm sure you've seen this look. Whereas it is super cute I just wanted to do something different. With the bright color trend going on right now I decided to pair the cape with this bright orange pencil skirt. So this is my 2011 take on the cape trend. What do you think?
