Happy Monday! Hope you had a lovely weekend…Ours was snow-covered then sunny, the perfect wintertime combination.  Whenever it's cold and blustery, I love to reach for a favorite cozy scarf.  Oversized and oh so soft, the scarf is possibly the most versatile, hardworking piece in any wardrobe.  The Zara plaid blanket scarf seems to have become the iconic must-have of the season and sold out everywhere. This similar option is the one I own and I love it.  It works with neutrals as well as prints (like this herringbone puffer vest).  I'm also adoring this window pane check style one because of its bold statement appeal.  I'd definitely pair it easily with cherry red, black, ivory or the chicest navy.  Houndstooth checks are perfect for now and into late winter, early spring.  They have the ease and ability to play up an all black look and then turn around and complement soft creams and blush pinks and grays late season.  The ways to wear your favorite scarf are as varied as the pattern choices.  I love wearing the soft falling triangle fold.  The way it drapes the neckline is freshly flattering.  For tips and how-tos on the many ways to tie one on be sure to take a peek at this fabulous tutorial here.  

Hope your week is filled with wonderful moments…P.S. Stay tuned for some great Valentine's Day gift ideas for him and her wish list craves too coming soon!
