Hope you had a great Halloween!
Just to be clear, I’m not talking about my weight here- I’m referring to my scarf.
As you can see by this scarf on the right- being too thin can actually be a problem.
The scarf looks awkward and doesn’t really make any sense.
I have a few girlfriends who refuse to wear scarves- and I honestly wonder if it’s because they haven’t found the right one yet!
As you can see on the left, this bright orange scarf not only is a lot thicker than the one on the right, but is also has amazing texture due to elastic thread, giving the scarf some bulk and some interest.
Now it’s the focal part of my outfit, instead of a distraction.
When you are out shopping and you see a scarf- try it on! Loop it around your head twice and see if there is enough fabric to still tie it. I have turned down many amazing scarves because they are too thin- or not long enough.
A few more suggestions, i.e.: note to self:
You might also want to get rid of your plain white long sleeved t shirts, and mom jeans…
There, now isn’t that better?

I’ve got a thing for scarves! Maybe it’s because I’m cold ALL THE TIME! Maybe because I wear so many neutral colors, it’s an easy way to bring new colors into my wardrobe. Maybe it’s because the hide my tummy when I’ve had too much to eat! Who knows? Who cares? As long as they are fashionable- you’ll see me in a scarf, a lot!
Today’s outfit is this gorgeous sweater with the asymmetrical hemline. It is a pretty purplish/ grey color and is as soft as a babies bottom. So comfy! My husband picked this up for me the other day, just ’cause. He does that occasionally, yes I know- I am a very lucky lady!
On the right I’m showing it alone- just paired with my skinny jeans and flats. I’ve thrown on a simple charm necklace and I think this looks fine just like this. But, because of my love for scarves, and because I love showing how simple it is to change a look- on the left I’ve added this lovely silk scarf, 2 chain style necklaces and I changed into my booties to keep my feet warm!
I’m wearing the scarf open (which won’t do much good hiding the food baby), but wanted to show an alternative way to wear it. Below I show another way to wear it- just looped around my neck.
