Snow day: Taupe + greens

I woke up this morning, peeked out the window, then jumped up and down on the bed like a child on Christmas morning shouting “it’s a winter wonderland!!” to an irked and groggy Nick. Winter storms are not my cup of tea, except for the first few hours of a fresh snowfall when everything is white and picture-perfect. I wore this outfit for our morning wedding planning meeting to discuss riveting topics such as plates and tablecloths.

I had been eying this scarf for a while, and finally pulled the trigger after realizing how functional an over-sized scarf is in my current commute (and then at my desk to alleviate mid-day chills). The biggest scarf in my collection was previously the ASOS plaid, which I typically “turtle” myself inside by wrapping it all around my head and neck. It’s hard to gauge the material of scarves online, but I was super happy with the quality of this particular one.

The material is a 30% wool, 70% acrylic blend and is very soft against the skin. Weight is light but warm as you build up and wrap the layers. It’s a large rectangle instead of a square, which makes it a little easier to do the draped style I’m wearing here without too much excess volume piled at the chest (with a square, just fold it in half first to get the same look). It’s so wonderfully comfy, the day I got it in the mail I rolled myself up inside and promptly dozed off.

The size of my scarf measures about 78″ x 40″ –  the website says 78″ x 22″ so I wonder if they folded it in half to measure, With this roomy rectangular shape, I’m looking forward to also trying a belted poncho sort of look with it next!

I finally found the brand and had a small heart attack since it is quite pricey!! Now I must protect it dearly in windstorms so it doesn’t suffer the sad “inverted” fate of most umbrellas in Boston.

    On one hand, we know that everything happens for a reason, and there are no mistakes or coincidences. On the other hand, we learn that we can never give up, knowing that with the right tools and energy, we can reverse any decree or karma. So, which is it? Let the Light decide, or never give up ?

    You just never give up, no matter how hard the challenges are, and observe this world with a healthy dose of criticism and don't just follow the herd like somebody else might do. Pengobatan usus buntu

    Your black Hunter boots were Youth size 4. Are these the same? I don't see the reflective patches on the back. Adorable outfit!
