thrifted threads: teal

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

i'm gravitating towards really comfortable and easy outfits this week,
as i tackle the post holiday season chores
 and try to get back into my everyday routine.

victoria's temperature is hitting double digits this next week... 
and the rain has finally stopped (hurray !!)
so i've been getting away with just a couple of layers of light wool.

i'm wearing a thrifted wool turtleneck that i found before the holidays.
i was drawn to it because of the its shade of teal... 
but finding out that it was made of 100% wool 
made its $3 price tag irresistible.

i've been trying to limit any purchasing (even thrift store finds)
as i continue on my decluttering challenge
but with this sweater, i couldn't resist.

the scarf/cowl was salvaged from a silk taffeta skirt i shortened.
the colour of the scarf is a beautiful match for the sweater 
and its silk content makes it so wonderfully warm to wear.

the faded black pants must be at least 20 years old 
and a hand-me-down from my sister.
they are so comfortable and perfect
as i manoeuvre back into a 
no-more holiday chocolate phase of healthy eating.

happy first hump day for 2015 everyone !!!
