Sweater? IB Diffusion, thrifted Shirt? Vanilia (similar here) Boots? c/o La Canadienne (here)
Leggings? Mark and James, Winners

I actually checked the weather network before we went up to Port Stanley this last weekend. I was a little shocked to see that the temperature was going to dip to almost freezing. Last year on Thanksgiving it was still so warm... Turns out 'but last year!' is not the best way to judge the temperature for this year.
So I gave in and wore my new lined boots, wool leggings and the biggest sweater of life. The boots were comfy, cosy and cute (alliteration much?). The leggings could have the potential to be my favourite things ever but they bag out badly after some wear. I start the day with fitted lace pants and end the day with lace track pants. Which, now that I write it out, kinda sounds ideal...
And the sweater? It definitely is one of my favourite things ever. I just thrifted it and when I saw that it was going to be cold, I handwashed it immediately. One day I need to make a youtube video of me washing this sweater in the tub. A month ago I was wrestling one of the cats in the bath but even without claws, I think this sweater might be harder to handle. It weighs so much! And then, even after the handwashing trick I learned, the sweater still took almost 3 days to dry. Worth the effort, though I probably won't ever wash it again. You have been warned...

Love the big cozy sweater and the handwashing reason is why I try and avoid buying those giants!

Yes! I love a big cozy sweater myself! I love that you thrifted it. I was lucky enough to find two hand-made wool sweaters to add to my wardrobe this season and I can't wait to wear it out.

Okay your outfit is great! The leggings are fantastic..the sweater is beautiful!!! And the boots...the boots appear to be $500, more or les, which is why I won't be wearing his outfit..although if $500 falls into my pocket, perhaps I will!

@Krittin 'n Stitchin - The boots are really pretty and functional for a Canadian winter and also made in Canada (yay!) but yes, they certainly are an investment!

Sweet Laundry said...

The sweater is gorgeous! I love the big buttons AND the colour. For me, it's all about the chunky sweater this fall. The boots are also fantastic but definitely a little pricey.

That sweater is awesome! Don't find too many like that in Texas. And if I did I could only wear it maybe a handful of times.
Thanks for your fashion inspiration!

Very cute ensemble! Those leaves are amazing, living in NYC we don't get foliage like that.
