What I wore: I could totally go to Hogwarts

Yes people, I am in Gryffindor.

I wore this outfit to the Jack the Ripper Walk and loved it. I was a tad annoyed that I wasn't able to get a photo. Luckily, I had a day taking photos with Charlie, Distracted so I get to show it off!

Yes I know the hat and scarf don't really go together but let's face it, who wouldn't wear a cape with a bowler hat? Plus, any day where you wear a Harry Potter scarf is always a good day.

What the hell am I doing with my arms?

I got the cape from Wish and was a bit annoyed when it arrived because not only was it bigger than it claimed (as you can see from the picture above) but also I had to make my own button holes, something that I never expected I'd have to do no matter how cheap the garment. I do love it though and it's surprisingly warm.

And here is my favourite Etsy purchase to date, originally bought for the Nightmare Before Christmas sing-a-long at the Prince Charles Cinema but it didn't arrive in time. I pretty much wear it all the time even if it's not Halloween or Christmas and it even became a good talking point when I interviewed for my job!

So... whaddya think?

What would you wear with a cape? 


  1. I'm jealous you have done the Jack The Ripper walk, I bet it was really cool! I am loving the Harry Potter scarf. I have been to Universal Studios and IOA in Florida and they have a massive Harry Potter area. Hogwarts castle is amazing, it really is.

    1. I got the scarf in the Harry Potter Studio Tour. I cried when I saw Hogwarts!

      I am so very jealous that you've been to the one in Florida!

  2. Love this scarf - you look so cute! x

    1. Thanks Lily! On eof my favourite birthday presents EVER.

  3. Hi Ashleigh,

    Thank you so much for the follow via bloglovin. Without it I wouldn't have found your beautiful blog :) I'm a Hogwarts/Harry Potter fan, too and the scarf looks gorgeous. Where did you get it from? Have you been to the Warner Bros. studio tour in Leavsden yet? It's amazing and definitely worth a day trip!

    I love your cape and I'm having a look at Wish's website. I don't think it looks too big, but it has a quirky touch. Happy Friday and hope to speak soon xxxx

    1. Thanks Caz!

      That's exactly where I got it from! My cousin and I went for my birthday and not only did I get to open the doors to the great hall but she also bought the scarf for me as a present!

      You can get some proper bargains at Wish but (as I have learned) always check the reviews of the product/company you're buying from :-)
