The Season for Scarves

While the rest of the world starts digging out their heavy winter jackets, mittens and other winter-y whatnots, around these parts it is FINALLY beginning to feel like fall. Insert Hallelujah chorus. That means I can finally pull out some of my favorite clothes and accessories. And when I say accessories, I mean SCARVES! 

I've been slightly envious the ladies who have been sporting their scarves for what seems like ages. To dip into the scarf stash has me all sorts of giddy.

When a group of lovely blogger lady friends suggested a Scarf Swap I didn't hesitate. An opportunity to meet some new bloggers, get into a little fashion fun, do a little shopping, and get a surprise scarf in the mail? Sign. Me Up.

I was paired with Andrea to send a scarf her way. Funny thing, I was also paired with Andrea for a Fall Blog Swap, so it was an added bonus to also send a scarf in with her fall goodies. To see the scarf Andrea received head over to her blog

Tayler was paired with me. I've "known" Tayler for quite some time, and have followed her for almost as long as I've been blogging. She's fresh into the domestic engineering gig and is rocking it rather well. She has the cutest little man, Rhys, and it's been so fun following along with her for the past few years. 

Tayler knocked my socks off with the scarf swap. She sent not one, not two, but THREE scarves my way. And, she did a fab job paying attention to my style. Let's take a look at the goods!
The scarves themselves are all very lightweight. SUPER important for someone who lives in Southern California, where the "coldest" it ever gets is 60 degrees. Though cute, those big, heavy scarves just do not have a place in my wardrobe right now. 

But these? These do.
I'm obsessed with the colors, prints, and textures. The colors are all neutral, so each scarf will go with basically everything in my closet. The prints and textures are fun and will add a little dimension to my outfits.
I know I didn't add any photos of me *actually* wearing these, but I have a personal rule - no scarves unless it's below 70 degrees. The last two days have actually complied with that rule, but I failed to wear any sort of scarf. But, don't you fret, the forecast calls for temps that will allow me to wear these beauties for the next few months!

Tayler, thank you so much for picking such wonderful scarves. I can't wait to liven up my outfits with these fabulous finds.

  5. So glad you liked them! And how neat you were paired together with the same person for both fall swaps! Speaking of winter weather...it's actually snowing here in Utah...well, "snowing"...sleet/rain/snow mess! Since last winter, Rhys was 6-9 months old, this is the first winter he remembered, so he is entranced at watching the snow fall!

  12. How cute how you braided them together like that! They do all seem like perfect CA weather scarves. I'm from a small town by the beach on the east coast so summer scarves are my favorite. How awesome to get three super cute new accessories?! They're all gorgeous but I think my favorite has to be the all cream colored one. I love texture! xx
