Put a Scarf on It, Part Une

Hey all, and welcome to our first official post of the new year! Hope you all had a splendid couple of days off, and feeling alive and ready to rock 2015’s world.

Two weekends back, Christa threw her annual holiday pot-luck, which we always make a dressy occasion (because, why not?). The day of, we were sort of on a roll. Somehow we had managed to get two post photo-shoots done, the house tidied, and meals started, all before 3:00. At this point we figured hey, we’re getting dressed up anyways, might as well get some outfit shots out of it!

And since no New England winter look is complete without a scarf, here is our tribute.

(By the way, I swear I smile more than this… I was just trying to channel my inner Tyra with my “smeyes.”)

Love Want Need: Infinity and Beyond


How am I just now getting into infinity scarves? The concept is kind of brilliant. Never again will I be that crazy person walking down the sidewalk, fighting with the wind to keep my strategically placed scarf around my neck. The tail ends dramatically fly behind me, and I look like I’m trying to be in a glamour shot from the 40s (while failing miserably). These above finds are inexpensive, cute, and go perfectly with their glove/mitten winter companions. Now we can all be snug as a bug in a rug while we battle these windy upcoming months!

Shopping tip: when searching online for these scarves, see also “tube” scarf, or, if you’re fancy like Urban Oufitters, “eternity” scarf.
