thrifted threads: layering purple wine

welcome to 'what i wore wednesday'...
i'm linking up with lindsey at the pleated poppy to join in the fashion fun.

the trick to surviving west coast autumn weather is....layering !!!

with the rainy/cloudy/windy season here to stay, 
there is a definite chill in the air.
however, one never know if the sun will pop out midday and surprise us.

i always start off with a cotton undershirt... 
like this long sleeve cotton v-neck.

next comes the wool...(fleece doesn't do the trick for me)

i found this thrifted handmade sweater a few years back.
 the two pieces are great together because the long shirt 
makes up for the short length of the sweater.
the fact that they both have the same purple wine colour 
was a totally lucky bonus

finally i always top off with a scarf...
 just for that extra insurance of warmth.
again, purple wine shade.
again, thrifted.

easy peasy,
now i'm ready !



  1. Lovely as always. I think one of the things I love most about fall and winter is layering my clothes, always feels so cozy.

  2. thanks are always so kind !!! xoxo
