BASICS AND A CAPE COAT

A DAY IN CARMEL
This past Sunday was spent in beautiful Monterey and Carmel. I haven't visited the Monterey Bay Aquarium in years, can't even remember when I last went actually, so it was fun visiting and seeing some friendly sea creatures. The jellyfishes in particular were so intriguing to watch; such delicate creatures with fluid movements supporting their intricate anatomy. After visiting the aquarium me and Jason strolled around downtown Carmel and although we didn't do any shopping (I've been on a shopping diet lately) we ended up stopping behind a pretty building to take snap some photos. 
Zara coat (similar here), F21 blouse, DIY Gap shorts, vintage belt, Hue tights, Zara wedges (similar here & here),

  8. Aw, I've always wanted to style a cape but it makes me shoulders look too wide :( I'm so jealous you can pull it off looking so cute!

    By the way, what kind of camera do you use?

    It's cool that you matched it with some shorts and not like the usual skirt.
