The Forest Always Kept Us Warm

Today’s ABC’s of Style challenge is “Q for Quick”, so I decided to bring out my new cape – I know the silhouette works for me, and I don’t have to worry about what I wear underneath. Throw it over an old T-shirt and you’re done.

It wasn’t until I finished shooting these pictures that I realized I should have worn my leaf brooch, so that I could pretend I was in Lord of the Rings. Actually, on second thought, if we’re talking about the movies, then I’ll pretend I’m in The Hobbit instead. I mean – Richard Armitage, Martin Freeman, Benedict Cumberbatch and Stephen Fry? You guys have fun with your Aragorn and Legolas, I’m good.

Silly poses are required when you’re wearing a cape

This is only remotely connected to the topic, but speaking of my British crushes, anybody watched Smash last night? It’s about a Broadway show, so it’s like Glee for grown-ups. I thought it was a pretty good pilot, even though I only watched it because of Jack Davenport (just like Norrington was the only reason I watched Pirates of the Caribbean 2 & 3.) I hope the show is going to be less annoying than Glee and do well so I can keep watching him 🙂

Cape: Modcloth; Jeans: thrifted
Boots & socks: Target; Brooch: vintage

    Um… Benedict Cumberbatch is gonna be in the Hobbit? Awesome. We recently saw the new Sherlock Holmes movie and when they showed Watson I thought ‘Wait a minute… where Sean of the Dead?’ then I remember that is the OTHER Sherlock Holmes. It was still pretty good though.
    I am LOVING your cape. The little collar is perfect. And you do look a bit like a cute little Hobbit in the woods in it. Or maybe a tall sexy elf? Pick the one you like best.

      Yeah, he’s going to be the voice of Smaug. So we won’t get to see his face… but his voice is good enough 😛

      Wait, “Shaun of the Dead”? That’s Simon Pegg. Martin Freeman’s not in that.

    Ahhh I love the cape! And the awesome funny poses. 😉

    I’ll definitely have to check out Smash! I watched the first two seasons of Glee, but I was pretty much over it by the time the second season hit.
