Scarf weather is finally here, and for a girl who hates to be cold, I’m kind of surprised by how excited I am about it! I think fashion blogging has changed me. It’s so much more fun to style fall and winter outfits because you can add layers and patterns and textures.
I know I’ve been saying I’m going to focus on holiday party looks this week, but this probably isn’t something I’d wear to a holiday party — at least not with the brown ankle boots. I haven’t been able to shoot all the looks I had been planning to, and a couple of things sold out (like a great red cardigan… boo!) so bear with me. I will have some more holiday party looks, but for today, this is more of a dressed-up casual winter look that I might wear to the mall or for running errands on a chilly day.
I pretty much styled this outfit around this gorgeous scarf. Best of all, it’s only $19.50! It comes in a bunch of other colors too, but I really loved this combination of navy blue, pink, and white. It’s super soft, and I like how it’s long but not too wide so it’s easy to wrap around your neck and go. Some scarves I have are so bulky, it’s hard to style them, but this one is very wearable.
This off-white sweater is from Madewell via Nordstrom. It’s carried at both retailers, and before the weekend it was fully stocked, but now I’m noticing the sizes are really picked over. It is pretty slouchy and probably doesn’t create the most flattering silhouette, but sometimes I’m willing to overlook that for other details — like the perfect v-neckline, the pretty knit details.
I’ve actually been wearing this sweater quite a lot. I wore it on Thanksgiving with skinny jeans and leopard flats, and I’ve also worn it with my olive green skinnies, but it also works well with these bootcut jeans because they help balance out the extra volume in the sweater.
I always wear bootcut jeans with heels, so I pulled out these brown suede ankle boots from last year because they’re the perfect height. I realize you can hardly even see them in these pictures, but that’s fine because they’re no longer available anyway. I’ll link up some similar options below.
My pink bag is also old so I don’t feature it often, but I thought it was the perfect addition to this outfit. I love how it coordinates with the scarf.
I got mine for a steal on a mega clearance sale a couple years ago, and now the only thing I can find in the same color is this cutie. I’m sure there are other fuchsia handbags out there, but the blush and burgundy tones have really taken over in popularity.
Without the scarf, this outfit is fine, but I think the scarf adds the perfect finishing touch!
