Scarves and Stuff

Tee: Cotton On  |  Cardigan: H&M (similar: one, two)  |  Jeans: Target (similar: one, two)  |  Flats: Gap (shop, similar) |  Scarf: Old Navy (similar: one, two, three)

Casual day.  (Not unlike any other day, really.)  People, if you don't know what to wear in the morning, take a cue from Jessica Alba, the queen of scarves.  You cannot go wrong with jeans, a plain tee, and a fun scarf.  I think next on my list is a striped scarf or a polka dot one.  

Seen any cute scarves lately?  Give me links if you can!  I used to feel like if I gave a scarf as a gift I was somehow copping out, but after the revelation of the importance of accessorizing I'm saying, "Self, rethink that."  A cute scarf is moving to the top of my list of great gifts to give for Christmas!

Speaking of fun things to give, with all the traveling I've been doing, one of my new favorite travel companions is this washi tape pouch from The Pleated Poppy.  It brightens me up when I'm feeling tired of living out of a suitcase.

You might remember The Pleated Poppy giveaway from last month.  Such cute stuff there!  Definitely keeping their stuff in mind as I'm thinking of Christmas presents.


  1. Just so you know - you inspired me to buy my first scarf last week! :)

  2. Such beautiful colors! I love your style.

  3. This polka dot scarf in pink from Kohl's will be my next purchase. It looks so much better in person! http://www.kohls.com/product/prd-1168675/apt-9-hot-dot-wrap.jsp

    Normally, I wouldn't spend nearly as much on a scarf, but it is so soft and cozy - already it's my new favourite!

    Love scarves! I just grabbed one from Nordstrom a few weeks back...its chunky sweater material in burnt orange...love!

  17. I got a cute polka dot one this weekend at Kohl's (http://www.kohls.com/product/prd-1168675/apt-9-hot-dot-wrap.jsp). Here's another option I liked but I went with the pink instead (http://www.kohls.com/product/prd-1093082/candies-half-half-polka-dot-scarf.jsp). I think scarves are great to put on the top of the Christmas wishlist and gift lists this year!

  18. Kohls Cares has 6 different scarves for sale right now, including one with polka dots and a striped one. 100% of the proceeds go to fund breast cancer research.

    I am a scarf queen!!! I have way too many, but they are the best accessory for this time of year! target has some super cute ones right now! Tons of them to be exact! ;)

  20. I just may give scarves for Christmas this year too. A scarf and a cute bracelet or ring. Two much-needed and ever-changing accessories. This scarf you have on here is so much fun. Love the colors.

    I'm really into infinity/circle scarves right now. And I just learned a new word today: snood. Kendi posted an outfit with a great striped snood. And that is how I learned the word.


  21. Scarves are the best! I have to keep myself from wearing them 24/7. lol


  22. i love scarves. working in design, our dress is fairly casual, and my go-to is definitely a basic tee and a fun scarf. i love the scarves from Three Bird Nest. They are so fun and bold.. a great accessory to an otherwise basic outfit.. http://www.etsy.com/shop/ThreeBirdNest?section_id=11970829


  23. Scarves are the ultimate statement necklace. I have a gazillion of them & I bought most of them inexpensively on eBay. Etsy has lot of nice knitted ones (although they be more expensive). Burlington has inexpensive ones too.

  24. I have only recently discovered the joy of scarves - mostly thanks to you :)
    I really love the one you're wearing today, I would be excited to get something like that as a Christmas present!

  25. Those jeans look really good on you! I have been wanting a pair of grey jeans (right after donating my own pair awhile ago, UGH.) and I really like these. I totally wish I had more fun scarves to accessorize boring outfits with, but I don't :( :( :( Maybe someday!

  26. I love scarves. I have the one you are wearing & I love it but somehow don't wear it enough.


  27. I agree! You can't go wrong with some jeans, cute flats, and a fun scarf :) You look adorable as always!

  28. i love your scarf! the colors are soo vibrant!
