{outfit} Function over Fashion....GASP

I was feeling a little under the weather on this day so it was all about the layers! I wore a thin turtleneck under my chunky sweater and leggings under my jeans plus some thick socks. Not the most fashionable, but definitely functional, which is why I decided to share the photos even though it may not look the chicest.

This sweater is one of my favorites, especially when I remember how I came to own it. My long time blog friend Jamie (who I was able to meet in person in 2011 - embarrassing blog post alert) wore it on her blog way back in 2013. I commented with how much I loved it but sadly it was too expensive for me to buy, especially when factoring in shipping from Australia. But then, in July 2014, she decided to sell it on her blog shop so I swooped in and grabbed it! So now it's having it's second life here in the States with me.

Sweater: Witchery cable-knit sweater,  Jeans: IRO "Faxy Cropped Jean" (Gilt c/o Wikibuy), Loafers: Burberry Prorsum animal-print calf hair slipper (Net-a-Porter), Bag: Chanel Classic 2.55 Double Flap (Madison Avenue Couture), Sunglasses: Michael Kors (Marshalls)

  1. I think this looks pretty fashionable to me - and I love that you're giving that great sweater a second life.

  2. I think it's a lovely layered outfit and I like your printed shoes with it! So funny you have a piece from Witchery in your wardrobe - it's a very popular place here! :) Sadly all the pieces I want seem to sell out by the time I get there, ha!

    Hope that you are having a nice week so far and you are feeling better :)

    1. Haha yea, I got onto them because of my blogger friend who lives in New Zealand (she was in Australia when I first met her) Sadly this is the only piece I have so far since it's so expensive and then shipping here would be coocoo.

  3. It hardly looks like you chose function over fashion for this outfit - I love the layers, your gorgeous bag, and fun shoes. Hope you are feeling better!

  4. I really like thick and classic sweaters! They match everywhere :)
