A Statement Scarf
Happy Monday! What a week it’s been! I spent the majority of last week in New York and Connecticut for work but was sick with an awful cold. Let me be the first to tell you, it’s no fun being sick while you have to work but it’s ten times worse when you’re working AND so far from home. I’m finally starting to feel better and have been grateful for the long weekend to recover. Add to that an exciting Seahawks win yesterday, and it’s been quite the week.
With all of my traveling I forgot just how cold it’s been around here! The best part about the cold? Layering and wearing scarves. As you know, I love statement necklaces, but in the fall and winter, jewelry doesn’t exactly keep your neck toasty warm so I trade out many of my statement necklaces for brightly colored or patterned scarves. I love making the scarf a part of the outfit, not just an extra layer with your outerwear, but actually a piece that completes your look. The best part is, it’s easy to add a fun scarf to a basic ensemble composed of wardrobe essentials – a leather jacket, boots, and skinny jeans.
Has anyone else noticed I’ve been wearing a lot of pants lately? It’s been a long time since I’ve posted a dress or skirt so I promise to do one soon!

Purple is my favorite color so obviously I love your scarf – and your nails are STUNNING! Hope you get back to 100% feeling better soon! xo Alyson
Thanks Alyson! I am finally feeling better, if I could just kick the nasty cough! Hope you’re doing well! 🙂
I’ve felt chilled to the bone lately here in Seattle, so I don’t blame you for not wearing dresses lately. I’ve been feeling the same way about my blog photos, too! Lots of pants it seems. That scarf is so pretty and I agree with Alyson, it’s gorgeous with your fancy nails 🙂
It’s been so cold but at the same almost unseasonably warm. There hasn’t been a lot of snow this winter so it’ll be interesting to see how warm summer is! We’ll probably all be begging for the “cold” weather to come back! Hope you’re doing well! 🙂
Hope you are feeling better. You are totally rocking the purple scarf with the leather jacket and denim look.
Thanks Brian! I am finally almost back to 100%! 🙂
