ever bought an item of clothing that ends up sitting in your closet, barely worn for a year or two, but then all of sudden one day you notice it and start wearing the hell out of it? that's the story with me and this little cape. for some reason i just can't get enough of it these days. it may have something to do with the warmish fall weather we're having and the fact that it's got some of the warmth of a sweater but more "aerated," if you will. that's part of the irony about the bay area-- as soon as you're ready to start wearing your fall tights and sweaters, it starts getting warm--it's such a cruel joke!
took these photos last saturday in golden gate park after lunch at the beach chalet (the food was meh, but the view of the ocean and the cocktails were fantastic, which more than made up for it). afterwards we walked over to the dutch garden in the park, one of my favorite spots in the city where the flowers are always in bloom and you can pretend you're in the netherlands for the afternoon.
