    In today’s post is this Talbots Audrey sweater (tons of color options) yet again…soft cashmere + neutral camel has made it a quick wardrobe workhorse. I feel the less-common boatneck style gives off a classic vibe true to the sweater’s namesake. And 3/4 length sleeves mean no more chunky rolled-up cuffs for shorter arms. I’m wearing a Petite sz P (usually corresponds to numerical sizes 0-2) and the fit is not snug nor baggy.

    I last posted this cape worn casually, and also wanted to show it as outerwear with a work-appropriate ensemble. With so much volume up top, I made sure to keep the bottom half more fitted, either with slim pants or a tapered skirt. I also love the look of a cape with over-the-knee flat boots.

      Shoot! I saw your post too late and missed the promo code for the dress. 🙁 Hopefully there will be another one! I wonder if the petite sizing would be too short for me. I'm looking forward to your review!

      I really love that cape, such a beautiful piece! Love the outfit you build with it.

      I bought that navy striped dress in size 2P. It really is nice– great fabric and pockets. The top fits a little baggy– there's no shape to the bust. The waist is good. It's unfortunately short though. (I'm 5'1".) I don't think I can wear it to work. (Possibly with opaque tights and flats? I'll have to try it on. I wore it for Christmas, though, and it was great.)

      I love the cape on you!

      Thanks! I like the sweater and skirt ensemble. It's perfect for cold mornings and warm afternoons in California.

      Such a beautiful look!

    • Franziska January 16, 2014 at 7:35 pm

      I hope that the dress works out for both of us 🙂 I ended up taking mine to the tailor today – she's removing a pleat on either side to de-puff it a little bit. I'm already excited to get it back!

    • Anonymous January 16, 2014 at 8:03 pm

      Gorgeous! <3

      Unrelated, but are you wearing any lip product in these pics? May I ask what it's called? 🙂

    • pretty little things January 16, 2014 at 10:44 pm

      you always look so incredibly classy! xo

      Camel and black is always such a lovely color combination! I love the lace skirt paired with the cape. I've been wanting a cape for awhile now, you've inspired me to start looking again…

      Both of those stores have such a big petites sale selection! Hope you were able to pick up something good : )

    • Jean January 20, 2014 at 11:42 am

      Thank you, Tia! You've been looking adorable as always – hope school's been going well!

    • Jean January 20, 2014 at 11:43 am

      Hi Michelle! I'd love to do more videos, but my job has been so busy this year. It's on my list to hopefully start up again!

    • Jean January 20, 2014 at 11:44 am

      Thank you! I'm not wearing lip color in these photos, just a generous coat of Aquaphor (recommended by my dermatologist and great for dry lips in the winter ; )

    • Jean January 20, 2014 at 11:45 am

      I hope you like it! If you don't care for the fur trim either, I forgot to mention any tailor should be able to remove it and re-seal the hood.

    • Jean January 20, 2014 at 11:52 am

      I agree with all your pluses and minuses, and am bummed mine did not fit. If you're 5'1" I agree it's on the border for work-appropriate length, but opaque tights and flats would definitely help. I also noticed the hem can be let down 1" which shouldn't be too hard!

    • Jean January 20, 2014 at 11:53 am

      Kimi, I posted a brief review here…please note that photo is after clipping the torso back 3-4 inches so I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who typically wears below a 0. It's adorable, though! https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=730854926924826&set;=a.267184426625214.75085.160326730644318&type;=1&stream;_ref=10

      Such lovely cosy winter warm colours and textures. Love this ensemble, it looks so luxurious – just the perfect combination for this chilly weather 🙂

      you look so pretty! i love this outfit! everything about it is awesome!

    • Sara Girão January 22, 2014 at 7:42 am

      Hi Jean! I found that cape on sale and couldn't say no to it. Could you show how you took the fur off?
      Thank you for the amazing blog! *.*

    • Ashley January 22, 2014 at 3:02 pm

      Whenever I wear black tights, I somehow always get holes into them! What is your solution (ie. is there a certain brand you buy that is thicker/more durable?)?
