Year of the Scarf


It’s freezing even in Florida this morning so I figured it’s a great day for a scarf. They make me warm. And unlike a turtleneck, if I start to feel stifled I can loosen it or take it off. I didn’t wear scarves much until this year, so I guess it really is the year of the scarf.

Rachel at Unexpected Blessings is hosting a blog carnival and it seemed like a great idea to join in until I started trying to take the photos. LOL.

This might be basic information to you, but I find a plain-neck solid top is the easiest thing to wear a scarf with. I love that it takes something plain and makes it more of an outfit. This first scarf I bought this year on sale at Ann Taylor Loft, one of my favorite stores.The second scarf is a little harder to wear because it’s short, but my mom made it for me and I really like it. She’s really handy with a needle. (That inclination totally skipped me.) I love jewel tones; bright, rich colors make me happy.
Photographers know better to than to make it look like your ceiling fan is a headdress, but I’m not a photographer. For more scarf inspiration, visit Rachel’s place. Happy Monday!

I tend to use the ceiling fan as a headdress myself. Very funny!

I got a scarf for Christmas. It was a hand knitted one. It is really cold here today too. I am just staying inside.

I love your scarves! You are totally right - a scarf makes it an outfit. Very nice :)

Yeah, I seem to also have been wearing scarves more this year, so it really must be the year of the scarf though I hadn't really thought about it until this carnival.

Brrrrr...it WAS cold here in FL today. I didn't wear a scarf but I did wear socks! On my feet - not around my neck.
