I have always been slightly obsessed with all things lady-like. I even have a stack of articles I've clipped from the weekend style section of the Wall Street Journal about domestic loveliness and etiquette. For some reason, these things help me feel confident to walk into any situation and be able to make a good impression and conduct myself well. It has recently affected my reading list and wardrobe.
When it comes to reading, my Kindle Fire is currently stocked with biographies of Audrey Hepburn and Emily Post. As for fashion, I've been stocking up on scarves. Here are few of my favorites.
This scarf is from H&M, one of my favorite places to pick up a "silk" scarf. H&M has a wide variety of prints, sizes, and weight. I especially like this one because it is so light weight, I can fold it several times over and wear it as a headband.
This scarf is also from H&M and is the one I wear most often. With its muted color pallet it is wearable with most neutral outfits and pulls in the color of my purse. I usually wear this one like a bib with it looping in the front.
I got this one and the one I am wearing in the first picture at a consignment shop in Madison, WI called re-threads. This one is label-less but the pink one I'm wearing is Escada and 100% Silk. They were each $10 and around the same price as the H&M finds. I think vintage stores are the perfect place to find scarves because they were popular long ago and you can find some great retro patterns for reasonable prices.
There are also tons of different, modern ways to wear scarves. (Click here to see Michelle Phan's youtube video with 9 different ways to wear a silk scarf)They are the perfect way to add a pop of color to an outfit and an accessory that a woman of any age would love. Scarves are also great for traveling because you can change an outfit by switching out the scarf helping to stretch a basic few items over the time you are on your trip (this is what I'm doing while at home for winter break!)
Enjoy wearing scarves this season!
