WIW: Scarf Bookending

I've never worn a lot of scarves even though I live in a cold climate - I find them too fussy for the most part. But I've found one or two recently that I really like and seem to work for me. And I've found a way to wear an infinity scarf in a way that requires no adjusting or fussing at all.

So today's outfit started with my burgundy skinnies (which are still going strong after 3 years) and paired them with my semi-tucked gold metallic knit pullover. I added a taupe/black snakeskin belt to add a bit of pattern. 

On top of the pullover, I've added a burgundy cashmere blend infinity scarf (from Danier Leather) which bookends the pants perfectly. Rather than have the scarf just sort of "dangle", I twisted it in the middle and doubled it before popping it on.

Accessories include my rose gold/black watch, red specs and black Chelsea boots.

So what do you think? Can I wear this scarf like I mean it??? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.

Pullover: Esprit
Skinnies: Attitude by Jay Manuel
Boots: Clarks
Belt: Olsen Europe (thrifted)
Watch: Fossil (eBay)


WIW: New Dress to get back in the game

Haven't posted for a while - been very busy lately. Been missing y'all like CRAZY!

I had a quick 5 minutes before flying out the door this morning and wanted to post and show you my recently thrifted Cleo petite dress. I eyed this dress when it first came out and by the time I had gone to the store to try it on, they were sold out. Well this showed up at my local thrift store on Saturday in my size brand new with tags and I grabbed it.

I have a formal Board meeting today so will pop the blazer on over top for the freezing cold Board room and formality of the meeting, but otherwise will wear without the blazer.

It feels great to wear a bit of colour and pattern after not doing so for a while and I've fallen back in love with dresses again.

Anyway…gotta run. Will try and catch up later :)

(sorry for the not great photos - too rushed this morning)
