I’ve determined that my ideal scarf style is large, rectangular, and very thin/lightweight. All of my favorite and most-worn scarves have these traits in common. Husband Mike made fun of me when I bought five plaid scarves from the same souvenir shop on the Royal Mile in Edinburgh, but he has since complimented me on several of them. SO I WIN. read more

I have no idea why, but I tend to reach for colors on weekdays and neutrals on weekends. This earthy neutral mix felt perfect for a Sunday filled with errands. It was, however, the last time this thrifted cardigan got worn as something in my washing machine tore a giant hole in the shoulder that couldn’t be mended. Sigh.

The Gap is my kryptonite, I swear. My mom and I wandered in while I was visiting Chicago, and this sweater absolutely leapt into my arms. It’s not the most versatile piece in the world, as it looks a bit odd worn unzipped and is too long in the body to wear with skirts, but it’s heavy, cozy, comfy, and form-fitting so a great bet for MN winters and springs. Its first outfit is extremely simple, but I felt fabulous in it nonetheless. read more
