Thistle And Weeds

My goal to add more colors to my summer wardrobe has been going fine so far, but when it comes to winter it’s a little more difficult, especially outerwear. I can’t justify spending money on a coat that I don’t need and don’t have room for, just because it’s a color that is not black or gray.Β  So it was a stroke of luck when I came across this Pendleton jacket at Goodwill – and right after seeing Solanah of Vixen Vintage wear a similar one too.

Now I’m not sure if my jacket is a vintage Pendleton 49er or not (the tag says Pendleton but it doesn’t say what year.) I doubt that it is though, because from all the pictures of the 49ers I can tell they don’t have these buttons with thistles on them. But the buttons are actually my favorite part, and for $5.99, I don’t care either way.

Jacket: Pendleton, thrifted
Shirt: Gap, remixed
Jeans: H&M, remixed
Boots: Bamboo thrifted, remixed

Edited to add: I’ve just discovered the Visible Monday feature from Not Dead Yet Style, which I’m linking up to! Orange shirt with blue & green plaid jacket, I’d say that’s pretty visible, right?

    Ooh what a great find! Those buttons really make the jacket, and I love the shades of blue. πŸ™‚

    The jacket is lovely. Picking up a couple blazers & sweaters at Goodwill is a great easy way to add some color to your wardrobe. Maybe the last owner added the buttons to spice up the coat a little more, or after she lost a couple buttons. Any way I really like the pattern.
