Olive Green Linen Jacket and a Thrifted Scarf

There’s a beautiful old willow tree on the back road of our neighbourhood where I like to go for photoshoots. I grew up in Willowdale, a suburb of Toronto, where the majestic weeping willows grow. I love how they are one of the first to leaf out in the springtime and the last to lose their leaves when autumn comes. 

I’ve been taking some things to secondhand shops: great to support charities and employ people as well as keeping things out of landfills. Naturally, I took a look around before leaving the store because you never know what you’ll find.

I spotted this olive green scarf with small silver studs. I bought an olive green linen jacket about 15 years ago but didn’t know it was the exact same shade. Greens can be tricky because there are so many different hues.

I love my white jeans any time of year and especially after Labour Day! I often add a pop of colour, in this case, olive green. This cropped jacket is cool and lightweight. Perfect for cool summer nights or pleasant autumn days.

The purse was also a recent purchase in a thrift shop, handmade with a Paris design, and I have another SLOW FASHION outfit.

Have you gone thrifting lately?

  2. I love this color combo! I agree that white jeans are great year-round. I enjoy thrifting too. The last item I bought was from an online thrift store and I had it shipped to you! So I haven’t seen it yet. Soon, I hope.

    You always find perfect matching things. It looks all great together on you. Perfect with the Willow tree too, lovely trees, they are not so common where I am, they do look rather wonderful. It is getting colder now here and Autumn is well here with lots of rain. We did need the rain though. 🙂 I’m not complaining. Let’s get more jumpers out soon for the the weather to come! Keep warm Carmen. ♥
