I bought this scarf at Zara in Cardiff, more or less on a whim. It’s a cozy and versatile scarf, to be sure, but I thought of it as more utilitarian than anything. But holy moly, does it ever draw comments. Of all of the wildly printed, brightly colored scarves I own and wear, I would never have pegged this one as the crowd favorite. Go figure. read more

Minnesota provides its residents with ample and justifiable reasons to complain about the weather. This is the land of the six-month winter and the 15-second spring, people. Usually, autumn is around 15 seconds long, too, and full of rain and gray skies and general ominousness. But this autumn? It has been warm. It has been sunshiney. It has been nearly TWO FULL MONTHS LONG. And even though I’ve been sick for most of it, I have been grateful for every bright, 60-degree day. I did bare legs and boots, got some use out of my vast collection of mid-weight jackets, and soaked up the loveliest MN fall I can remember.
