One of my favorite things to bring back from my travels is a scarf. Perhaps it stems from my love of fabrics and textiles. It's hard to resist exquisite fabrics and artisan craftsmanship. I have been relying on these lightweight scarves to get me through the end of summer. I'm never without a wrap or scarf to ward off the chill. A wrapped neck always makes me feel warm and cozy.
These scarves are relaxed, but easily add a bit of polish to any outfit. All summer I have been wearing my purple scarf with navy; the flecks of metallic gold thread are subtle, but add a special touch. The beige check and striped scarves pair well with crisp white. Lightweight scarves in breathable natural fabrics are key transition pieces as the weather grows cooler.
I always enjoy tying my scarves in new ways and perfecting my knots. I like my scarf tied with a nonchalant ease that still looks neat. A scarf is one of those small details that completes a look. I'm looking forward to wearing these as much as possible over the next few weeks.
