I love how a scarf transforms something boring into something special, just as this pretty Pucci scarf from Nordstrom spices up a basic camel-colored top.
I also like a wardrobe challenge for getting the creative juices flowing, especially now as I’m not planning any clothes purchases until spring. I took a closer look at my wardrobe recently. I’ve never had a bursting at the seams closet, but what I do have is not one, but two drawers filled entirely with scarves. I counted them for the first time, and in fact, I own 69 scarves – 39 non-knitted and 30 knitted!! I was proud of myself for being able to cull ten of them, which leaves me with a mere 59 neck accessories.
|And the 30 knitted ones!|
So naturally, the challenge I’m setting forth for myself is to wear each of these for the next 59 days – that would be a different neckerchief until Sunday, February 26! I’ll choose the scarf and build my outfit around it a la the Vivienne Files (though there are no Hermes scarves in my collection – yet!). Some of these scarves have not seen the light of day for years, maybe I will love wearing them, or maybe I won’t, in which case they will be deleted.
Now reading this, it is obvious that I do not need another scarf, but this knitted beauty is on my radar for 2012
