Casual Friday in white + purple layers

I definitely went the “casual Friday” route last Friday, and I didn’t really think about taking photos of this outfit when I kind of randomly pulled things from my closet in the wee hours of the morning. (It was that kind of week, y’all.) But it surprised me how much I ended up liking this outfit. Plus, there was a brief respite from the rain — a rarity these days — so my friend Stephanie took a few quick pics for me. 🙂

It’s the first outing for this short-sleeved cardigan I thrifted last month, and I layered it over a purple tank top. The outfit felt kind of bare and unfinished, but it all came together when I added this plaid infinity scarf (unfortunately sold out online) I picked up at Old Navy this past fall.

And I loved the added pattern-mixing dimension when you see the outfit with my purple-and-olive plaid houndstooth overcoat (also thrifted, last winter).
