Wear It: Aubergine

What I Wore Wednesday

Know what’s fun?  An awesome mother-in-law that takes you shopping for early Christmas presents and lets you pick out a new scarf and a new sweater.  Know what else is fun?  Saying the word aubergine.  Know what’s not fun?  One week left of finals.  And also?  The blue bit on my scarf is the tag my husband failed to mention was sticking out.  Why do guys never notice things like that?
Aubergine sweater, scarf, booties (way old):  Kohls
Tank:  Target
Jeans:  JCrew, thrifted
Specs:  c/o GlassesUSA
I have always loved this aubergine deep purple color, so I’m glad to see it’s everywhere this season.  What color are you loving lately?
I post my outfits here to show off my thrifty and handmade wears. Plus, I like cute clothes. I link up each week with What I Wore Wednesday at The Pleated Poppy, Whatever Whenever Wednesday, Not Dead Yet Style, Real Girl Style and Casual Friday. If you're dropping in today, please say HI! in the comments – I would love to come check out your blog!


  1. Aw, it's nice when you can have a great relationship with a mil. Your scarf is so pretty.

  2. I think my husband wouldn't notice if I had my dress on backwards and he was taking photos of me! LOL

    I love deep purple.

    Nice casual outfit.


  3. Pretty pretty! Aubergine IS a fun word. :) And I see that your sweater and scarf are from Kohl' of my favorites! I'm actually talking about purple on my post today too. Great minds ;)

  4. I love the combo of the aubergine sweater and the lighter scarf. So pretty! Nice mother-in-law!! Have a great (one week of finals) week!

  5. I love your scarf, and yes, aubergine is fun to say and fun to wear. But I don't have anything that color. I love teal, and burgundy (why say oxblood when you can say burgundy?).

    We almost bought an aubergine couch once, but we chickened out. If I had it to do again, I'd go for aubergine!

  6. What a gorgeous outfit!
    I am a new follower from the follow me wednesday party. would be lovely if you would like to follow back :-)

  7. You look great! Love those glasses.
    I'm really into royal blue right now. :)

  8. Aubergine is my favorite! And I sympathize with you on the tag bit. I do tripod & remote, so I usually don't notice a tag or piece of grass or whatever until I download the photos.

    Really cute look! :)
