Something Special

How about that cold weather teaser we had yesterday? You “northerners” are probably thinking “Is this woman crazy? It was barely 50 degrees in Miami!!” Yes, this is true, but for us Miamians who are used to keeping toasty year round, fifty degrees is damn cold!

I personally have a love/hate relationship with cold weather. I love winter fashion, but I really hate the cold. I’m a sucker for jackets, boots(ies), gloves, suede, leather, you name it! But my absolute favorite winter piece is definitely the scarf! I get it from my mother (the woman has more scarves and pashminas than the entire population of Russia combined).

When I first laid eyes on this red lips print scarf at Marshalls it was love at first sight! This baby is a true statement piece. Notice how every other piece in this outfit is a basic, khakis, white button down, blazer- all basics.

Well, if you don’t already know, I don’t do basic. At least not without a little something special and this scarf is just that… Something Special!

KissRed Lip Print Scarf: Marshalls; White Button Down Shirt: Old Navy; Blazer: BCBG Max Azria c/o Loehmanns; Khaki Skinnies: Tommy Hilfiger c/o Macys; Handbag: Danielle Nicole– Alexa Mini Cross Body; Boots: NYLA c/o DSW; Lipstick: Christian Dior Addict Extreme in Sunset Blvd #829.kissimage_3kiss

Scarves are endlessly versatile accessories. Not only are there countless ways of wearing a scarf around your neck, but you can morph your scarf into a turban, waist sash, halter, beach cover up, or even a dress (using a combination of scarves).

Oh yea, scarves also look Tré-chic tied or wrapped around the top handles of a handbag. As seen here.
