Testing The Trend

One of the biggest trends we saw through the summer was a classic bandana tied around the neck (see examples here & here).  Though I loved the idea of this & the way it looked on others, every time I tried to pull it off, it didn't quite feel right on me.  So, I was pleased when the skinny scarf began to gain momentum this fall, because they have a slightly polished feel...which is more in line with my own personal style.  I also appreciate any trend that is season-less and will carry over from winter to spring to fall.  I scooped up this one during a Black Friday sale and have been wearing it with simple sweaters & blouses on days that don't require a heavier scarf around my neck.

I had mentioned in previous posts that I would be doing a winter shopping freeze for January & February - I did this last year and have decided to make it an annual tradition (read my recap post here).  Other than purchasing necessary toiletry items that I run out of, I will not be spending any money on new clothing or beauty items until March 1st.  Because of this, there will be lots of remixing of old pieces - so, for those of you who are still shopping, I will do my best to include links to similar items in my posts and I will continue to publish my regular Steals Under $30 and 20 Under $20 series.  If you're interested in joining me, be sure to follow along on Facebook, where I'll be issuing weekly challenges to help you dig deep in your closet & find creative ways to put together outfits.

What I'm wearing:
Warehouse coat (similar in ivorynavy, or camel), Mango sweater (on sale!), Zara scarf (similar here or here), 
c/o Old Navy jeans (similar here or here), LOFT booties (similar), ASOS clutch (similar in green or in black), Madewell RingPilgrim Earrings, Bracelets: J. Crew & Madewell (similar here & here),
