High-waisted skirts, fitted sheath dresses, tailored button downs tucked into form fitting pants... something along these lines is happening most workdays.  And that's a good thing.  Occasionally, however, I would like to reserve the right to wear something that tricks the outside world into thinking I am a supremely put-together person, when in fact, I am a hungover person wearing a nightgown disguised as a cute work-appropriate dress.  This is that dress.  It's long enough for the office and has just enough wool in it to deliver an elevated texture and drape, while the knit fabric and dolman sleeves still maintain their supreme comfort factor.  Also helpful in pulling off the hoax is the gold zipper detailing along both sleeves.  Because anything that is adorned with zippy gold embellishments is sure proof that I'm totally on top of my game today!  Psych.  I was literally just napping in the supply closet.  Michael Kors, you get me.

Ok just for the record, I've never actually napped in a supply closet and am not suggesting you do so. But for real, some days you just want to be a bit more comfortable, and this Michael Kors number allows you to make that happen.  Shop more of his amazingness below:

MEMO: Capes

Capes are in it to win it again this fall and winter, so above I've provided a round-up of some of my favorites.  As you can see in this post, this post and this post, I'm a fan.  However, it's important to note that my fondness for the chicly shapeless outerwear goes beyond just a desire to occasionally pretend I'm Hermione Granger (as discussed here) and/or cover up a Chipotle-induced food belly.  Not only do I find them very attractive and oh. so. comfortable, but they can also be absolutely clutch when wearing a blazer or suit to the office (as worn in this post).  If you're someone that works in a business formal environment and find yourself awkwardly trying to stuff your suit jacket sleeves into the sleeves of a coat or trench, you probably know the misery of this process, not to mention the irreversible wrinkling effect on your suit jacket/blazer sleeves that are subsequently on display throughout the rest of your work day.  Enter the cape, which allows for the abandonment of the awkwardly over-stuffed arms, yet still provides that critical extra layer of warmth.  So go ahead, get your cape on.
