I think I've worn clothes for just about every season this week. Isn't that crazy?! I often find myself changing throughout the day during the summer here in London.

The best way to deal with this changeable British Summer is to layer clothes. Yesterday I wore a cape coat with 3/4 sleeves. I love 3/4 length sleeve coats. Perfect for when you need something more than a cardigan but not a full coat. And, let's be honest how ridiculous does wearing a full on winter coat look in the middle of June? Not only is my cape coat lighter in weight it's super stylish. It was my saving grace this spring. It works with so many outfits and in colder weather can be worn over long sleeve cashmere jumpers. On a day like yesterday I wore it with a lightweight printed dress from Zara, black tights and my beloved brogues which my mother purchased for me in France.

Not surprisingly the weather was up and down, at least I could just throw off my cape coat and have the right outfit for those warm and sunny moments.

Does anyone else love cape coats as much as me?
