What? You don’t believe I’m in Times Square? Oh, all right. I’m talking about this scarf, which features a gorgeous, colorful, digital print of that famed New York landmark/destination in all its neon glory. When it’s wound around my neck like this you can’t tell, of course, but it’s still lovely to look at. And since some of my favorite folks and closest friends live in NYC, it makes me all the happier to have a colorful, cozy reminder of the place keeping me warm. read more

Do you see blues? Purples? I swore that scarf was a mess of gorgeous blues, but when I pulled out some navy and cobalt items to assemble this outfit both shades looked completely wrong. This skirt and pair of shoes look blue to me most of the time, but more on the purple side of blue and they definitely bring out the purples in that printed scarf. I do realize that blues and purples are closely related and that there are blue-purples and purple-blues. But something about confusing my colors just plain irritates me. read more

I wore this to my dear friend Christina’s baby shower on a day considerably warmer than this! My watercolor-print scarf drew lots of compliments, and I’m eager to give it another outing. I’m pondering doing a month of scarf-inclusive outfits, either in December or January. Since I acquired bales of new scarves on the UK trip, I figure I should get ’em into rotation! Plus, I’m eternally cold and nothing keeps me cozy like a giant, lofty scarf. read more
