Outfit of the Day

My outfit from yesterday! I was supposed to go to a blog meet and a friend's house warming party, but apparently I still don't know my limits and ended up being too tired because I hoovered the apartment and went out to listen to bands on Friday. I having a hard time understanding that I still need to take it easy because it really takes a long time to recover from pneumonia. There's just so much interesting things to do!

On Friday I also popped to H&M. I read Leena's post on her blog Luurankoja Kaapissa about her fall wish lists, and saw a cape I liked. I looked at capes last year but didn't get one, which I kinda regretted. This time I figured a cape might work really well with my wardrobe, because I like to wear tops with a low neckline, and my favourite leather jacket has the same type of cut, which makes me need a scarf to go with it. The turtle necked cape covers my neck and décolletage, which are the parts that need warmth while outside, and isn't too warm for walking around the city.


Cape - H&M
Skirt - H&M
Bag - H&M
Boots - Unif High Trench

Looks like my favourite place to shop is pretty apparent ;D This autumn H&M has plenty of "nu-goth" style clothing which appeals to me, so I go there occasionally to see what new items they have. I very much like the high-waisted skirts and cropped tops that are now in fashion. 

The cape might need a bit of ironing! It has pockets and there are hidden ribbons inside that work as sort of arm holes and keep the cape in place even if it's open in the front. It has buttons in the front and the collar isn't too snug. I expect it will look very smart with a colourful scarf too, if I feel like wearing one!

  1. I have the same cape! :D I love it so much, it's so hard to find a pretty cape (not even an ugly one, no one sells this kind of clothing:D) and this one is really good :D

    1. What a coincidence! I've been wearing it for three days now every time I go out, I really like it. Just the right amount of warmth and at all the right places, and the collar is so nice!

  2. On muuten tosi hyvännäköinen viitta, melkein tekis mieli hankkia itsekin! En mä kyllä tiedä minkä kanssa tuota pitäisi, mutta eiköhän jonkinlainen inspiraatio iske ennemmin tai myöhemmin :D

    1. Mä kyllä suosittelen! Erityisesti jos tykkää avonaisista kaula-aukoista, tää lämmittää sillon just oikeasta kohtaa. Mä oon testannut pillifarkkujen, kynähameen ja mekon kanssa, ja tuntui kyllä toimivan kivasti kaikissa yhdistelmissä :)

    1. Thank you! I'm trying my best to take it easy, apparently it's not for my personality, I like to do things ;D But on Sunday I only played on the computer, it's a great way to not do anything physically straining.

  4. That's a nice cape :) I'll have to see what my local H&M has in - I saw on another blog that they now do a black kitty purse; it's all black and very snazzy, so I'd quite like that, too...

    1. Thanks! There's also a little black rubber coin purse with bat wings, it was very cute but I couldn't come up with any use for it so I had to skip. They also have bat bed linen and pillow covers at the home department!

    2. My local H&M doesn't even have a home department! I think I'll have to do some online shopping!

  5. Not really my style, but it looks really good on you. I am suspecting I may have pneumonia as well, so I'm going to the doctor soon to make sure I'll be alright, haha. Hope you remember to take more care of yourself next time.
