This is the first of two scarf ties I’ll be sharing this week. It’s another easy arrangement that works for any oblong scarf and will stay in place without constant fiddling.
- Grab one corner of the scarf, allow to drape diagonally lengthwise.
- Wrap around neck with ends hanging in front.
- Cross the ends.
- Grab the end that’s underneath, and…
- Pass upward through the loop. Adjust…
- Et voilà!
You can adjust where the scarf sits by making the loop larger or smaller.
This lovely red cashmere scarf is from L’affaire cashmere. It’s so soft and light and the color is amazing! They have a good selection of both cashmere and wool scarves right now in lots of colors and patterns. If you’re thinking about a gift of cashmere, you can still order by December 12th for delivery by Christmas. Shipping worldwide is free, and the scarves come packaged in nice gift boxes with a ribbon.
I’ve been wearing this mock turtleneck layering top from Adea almost non-stop since our weather turned cool. The smooth, breathable and lightweight Italian fabric layers brilliantly (no bunching!) and what I like best is that I can go from cold exteriors to warm interiors without overheating. Adea tops are washable (and will hang to dry within a few hours, making them ideal for travel) and totally wrinkle free. I can’t wear full turtlenecks, but this mock neck is perfect.
It was COLD when I was outdoors taking these photos, so I grabbed one of my warmest sweaters. The v-neck is a cashmere sweater from Lands’ End, now a few years old. It’s held up quite well. If anyone from Lands’ End happens to read this, please please please bring back this cashmere v-neck sweater in Petites!! It’s so hard to find v-necks for women anywhere these days, and especially in Petites.
