Tying the knot with Scarves

Monday, November 18, 2013

Everyone keeps asking me when I am going to tie the knot & guess what... I am! With scarves that is! In the fall scarves are a must have, but why do we really add them to our outfits? Warmth or to just accessorize? My theory is that we ladies will wear things even if its uncomfortable just to look fab. So even though we may benefit from wearing a scarf in the cold, if we want to wear a scarf to complete an outfit in the somewhat warmer weather, we will wear that scarf; which is exactly why I added it to this look on a 78 degree sunny day. Simply because I could ;). I love the patterned print mixed with the lace on the dress and the blue color against the peach just makes it pop. 
And …My glasses, oohhhhhh these glasses. I get asked at least once a day where I got these whenever I wear them. Kate Spade never seems to disappoint me!

I know short booties are the current trend these days but I do believe that every gal should own a pair of knee high boots. They are great when it comes to that in-between weather we all have a love/hate relationship with. Cold mornings, warm afternoons, back to cold nights. By adding knee high socks it brings a little something more to the outfit but it also helps us out with that warmth. Seeing just a tad bit of the sock over the boot, ah so cute! You can even add leggings to the mix & layer with the socks over. Cognac is must have boot color. It goes with literally everything. I always hate when I get in a bind shoe shopping and can't decide between colors. Black, grey, saddle the list could go on. Why do they do this to us? I mean its already hard enough picking one boot much less having to decide between colors! If you are ever in that rut ask yourself questions before making an impulse buy,"What colors do I wear a lot? Will I get a lot of use out of these? How many pairs do I already have in this color?" Process of elimination, its tough but it helps. Good Luck!


My make up for this outfit was just an everyday clean look. I did use a base color that helped the brown color of my boots stand out more. Texture from MAC is one of my absolute favorite eyeshadows & it's suited for the warmth I needed. Topped it off with a little Coppertone blush by MAC to compliment my eyeshadow & well there ya go.

Free People really knew what they were doing when they made this dress. It is perfection. Not only is it super comfy but it is oh so beautiful! Only downfall is I purchased this dress last year but Free People always comes out with updated versions of there clothes from the previous years. Everyone loves a pretty dress & I felt so pretty wearing this. I hope all you love bugs enjoy your Tuesday.
