I Am Addicted...

.....to scarves. I love them. Love. Them. Like I am not exaggerating. I probably have 30 or more. Why? Why do I love them? Why do I have so many? Because they come in all of the colors and prints you can imagine, I am a sucker, and most importantly, they can change the whole look of what you are wearing.

I found some pics of me over the last few months sporting a few scarves. Despite how often I wear them ( and I do wear them often) I really don't have that many pics in them (its ok you don't have to cry)! Probably because I wasn't blogging until a few months ago so I didn't feel the need to document every outfit. I know, so devastating...

This scarf....bought it at Gap and wear it with everything. This was in my in-between-looking-pregnant-and-not-looking-pregnant stage. The solution?? Throw on a scarf to cover my "is she pregnant or is she eating too much?" gut. Reason # 343949324 why they rock.
 
Basic black T and jeans. Tossed on this mustard scarf and leopard print ballet flats and voila: you have a whole look.
 
Airplane ride? Toss one on with a T and you're still comfy but cute! This was on our way back from San Diego (side note: if you've never been...totally go).
 
I loved this outfit. This was after a couple several winery stops in Ithaca (another place to visit if you haven't). Jeggings, riding boots, military jacket, navy and white striped shirt, and the pop of color with the mustard scarf.
 
 
Lastly, this outfit I can't wait to wear after this baby is no longer compromising my figure. Check out the outfit details right here
 
 
Ok so whats the moral of the story? Scarves rock. Why?

1. Add a pop of color to a look..
2. Turn an outfit into an actual look.
3. They are an inexpensive way to enhance your wardrobe.
4. I mean I guess scarves are technically made to keep you warm, if need be. But, whatever. I still go by my motto "fashion before function."
5. Work for all seasons. You can get really lightweight scarves for spring/summer.

Here is a little ditty I found on Pinterest that shows all kinds of ways to tie a scarf. I'm an old fashioned just one swoop around the neck kind of girl, but if you aren't check this out....

There is also another pin that has like 40 ways to tie one....who knew there were so many ways!?! Check that out here


So go. Go and build your scarf wardrobe! But don't blame me if you start to get addicted.
