Bottom line, my favorite seasons are fall and winter. No disrespect to summer and spring but the blistering sun freckles my face and blooming flowers rile up my allergies like no other. Don’t get me wrong, I love the hot weather – I live in Southern California for goodness sake. But there’s something about wintery weather that puts a smile on my face. It means only one thing: LAYERING UP!
Cardigans, sweaters, long tees, flannel shirts, blazers, peacoats, leather jackets – all perfect tools in the art of layering. But, by far, my absolute FAVORITE layering tool is scarves. Every year, I look for new and interesting patterns and shapes to add to my diverse collection. When on a scarf hunt, one of the first places I look is J.Crew’s sister company, Madewell. Not only is Madewell my favorite brand for clothing, but they also have the BEST collection of scarves. If you want to see this collection with your own eyes, you have to visit one of their retail stores (California locations include Century City Mall and Americana at Brand).
This year, I have my eyes on a tube scarf. I’ve looked high and low for one of these babies for the past few weeks and let me tell you, they are hard to find! But of course Madewell came through for me in the form of their heather oatmeal funnel scarf (pictured). It’s exactly what I’ve been looking for. There’s something about this scarf that looks so comfy and warm! I would wear one right now if it wasn’t 85 degrees outside.
