Spending the week in Florida for the Thanksgiving holiday, I’m enjoying the refuge from the DC cold. Yesterday, it was 65 degrees out and as I embarked for a quick run in my tank top, I noted all of the Floridians bundled up in their gloves, headwarmers and fluorescent windbreakers. And, of course, they all looked at me like the crazy person since I was in the tank top.
As much as I love these milder temperatures, I do miss some of my warm weather accessories, namely scarves. I have what some might refer to as a scarf addiction. I just can’t help myself. Scarves go with any outfit, add color, pattern or texture to a neutral outfit and just look so darn fabulous. Most of my scarves are light or mid-weight, which are great for Spring, Fall and really chilly work environments. As large as my scarf selection is, I need to add a few heavy weight options to keep warm during the winter months.
Every woman needs a chunky knit scarf. They are the warmest, most versatile pieces and completely necessary for walking the city blocks in the winter. I purchased a violet version from J. Crew last winter and it was one of my favorite purchases. Unfortunately, I’ve lost said purchase, which explains my need for a new one!
I am ob.sess.ing over this scarf from Madewell. The faux fur and flannel lining is such an unlikely, yet flawless combination. It looks so cozy and absolutely glamorous at the same time.
With a heavy knit with a fur lining, this Gap infinity scarf is ideal for keeping out the winter chill. The camel color will go with pretty much anything and is one of my favorite colors. However, it also comes in black if that is more your style!
