I know, I should be showering you with holiday gift ideas and telling you about all of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales. I’m NOT that blogger, though… sigh…
However, I firmly believe that those of us who are holiday shopping should treat ourselves to one really LOVELY thing for the upcoming season, and of course for the years to come. We don’t buy something just to wear it once or twice, unless we’re getting married or standing up in someone else’s wedding!
So maybe a scarf has caught your eye, and kicked you in the heart… (I love the phrase coup de coeur…)
It’s all the right colors – warm and cool, neutrals and accents…
But can you wear it? How will you wear it? You don’t want something this beautiful to just lay in a drawer to gather dust, right?
Will you be able to wear it to one of those parties, where you’re not sure just quite how dressy things are going to be?
Maybe you just want to wear simple neutrals, but feel like you should dress them up just a bit?
(please note that black diamonds aren’t anything special, but they look nice with this outfit…)
Maybe you’re just pulling on a tee shirt top and some knit cords – will your scarf look okay with that?
I am childishly seeking praise for finding this bracelet….
Serious work (or religious service) clothes will be okay with your scarf, won’t they?
Most of your wardrobe is neutrals, will this scarf work with those kinds of outfits?
You KNOW that your favorite sweater dress will be perfect with your scarf, and will give you a perfect excuse to wear your comfy camel flats (instead of messing around with silly high heels…)
Yes, your favorite sweater dress also comes in black, grey, and a really neat color called Pink Cedar…
A scarf that includes at least 2 of the colors in your wardrobe will almost certainly find its way into lots of outfits, with just a few minutes of thought!
There’s always a way to treat yourself, as well as be generous to others…
p.s. 2 years ago, we looked at how 4 winter white garments can dress up a core wardrobe of navy – still, and always, timelessly true…
