Vigilante Coffee Hyattsville MarylandVigilante Coffee is in Hyattsville, Maryland and a favorite place for me to go with Karl or friends for coffee and chatting, a yummy pastry, or even to telework away from the home.

Wardrobe Oxygen in cabi fall 2017With Emerson at a sleepover, Karl and I had time for a date at Vigilante. I’m drinking their Hyattschilla, a drink made with espresso and salted caramel ice cream. Yes it was as delicious as it sounds!

cabi fall 2017 including Penny Lane Lovely on Wardrobe OxygenWhen I attended cabi Scoop, I saw a preview of their New Arrivals collection Penny Lane Lovely and could not WAIT for it to arrive. While I loved many pieces from it I immediately fell for this sweater. I loved the camel and black combination, and could see how it would work so well with orange, red, green, plum, mustard, and all the autumnal colors that are hot this season. I loved the ruffle detail on the wrist and how the cuffs have thumb holes so I can pull down the sleeves and keep my hands warm in winter. Like all cabi clothing, it was so smartly designed for wear, but also for coordinating with previous seasons of cabi.

cabi Buzz necklace and Heritage necklace Wardrobe Oxygen in cabi fall 2017Speaking of smartly designed… the jewelry I’m wearing is all cabi, and almost all of it works double duty.  The bracelet is actually part of the Bon Vivant Necklace.  It’s a pretty necklace but has little clasps to remove one portion and turn it into a bracelet.

Sweater: Earn Your Stripes Pullover c/o cabi (XL) | Jeans: Slim Boyfriend c/o cabi (14, cut and frayed the ends myself) | Earrings: Buzz Earrings c/o cabi | Chain Necklace: Buzz Necklace c/o cabi | Pearl Necklace: Two of the Heritage Necklace c/o cabi ) | Bracelet: Portion of the Bon Vivant Necklace c/o cabi | Scarf: Deidre Scarf c/o cabi | Shoes: Nine West (no longer available; similar) | Bag: Clare V. | Lipstick: L’Oreal ‘Eva’s Red’

The chain is the Buzz Necklace, which has several connectors hidden in the design to turn it into smaller necklaces or even a bracelet.  The long pearl necklace?  It’s actually two of the Heritage necklaces hooked together! You can see me wear the Buzz and Heritage necklaces as shorter pieces in this outfit post. Even the Deidre Scarf, it’s a perfect length where I can double it around my neck without choking myself and have also worn the scarf as a belt.

cabi slim boyfriend jeans cut and customized with leopard haircalf pumpscabi shared a video on Facebook on customizing jeans and I decided to try their tips on my pair of cabi Slim Boyfriend jeans. I love the look of these jeans but with my height rolling them up to a proper length looked bulky. I trimmed, washed, and love the result!
