Outfit: Shoeper Challenge #70 and a Neutral Friday








I decided to go for a simple outfit of basics in neutral colours for casual Friday this week. You may not think that leopard print is a neutral, but it totally is! Look at the colours in this cardi: a creamy beige background with black and brown print. Neutral, neutral and neutral.

It’s not yet cold enough out for a coat, but a cape makes a great transitional piece. This one is vintage – it was my mom’s in the late 60s/early 70s.

These shoes are one of the few pairs I have in what could be described as a nude shade. They were bought from Faith about 5 years ago. They are a great heel, but as the heel has a metal tip (Faith did this with a lot of their shoes) they are sometimes bottom heavy and can fall off your feet when walking up stairs if you are not careful.

I will be uploading outtakes and extras from yesterday and today to my Facebook page over the weekend so be sure to check it out!

  1. Love this look, the print sweater and the nude shoes. Been doing nude shoes for awhile (kinda a fad over here) and really love them. They really lengthen legs when wearing a skirt too. Oh so wish it was cape weather here you lucky girl!

  2. Wow, super fabulous.

    I want a cape coat now.

  3. Thanks ladies! I think a cape coat would be less OTT than my actual cape, but I have more than enough coats already. I love the cape coat look though.
