Lately there have been quite a few cold and rainy days here. It presents an interesting challenge for me, as I’m still learning how to be stylish in chilly weather. For this day, I figured that wrapping myself up in a cashmere blend cardigan and a pashmina scarf. This scarf is fast becoming one of my everyday pieces. I bought it in Chinatown when I went to New York City last year. That was the day I first tried on the goldenrod Fluevog Malibrans. I couldn’t bring myself to spend that much on a pair of shoes at the time, so I consoled myself by buying a scarf that I knew would match them when I bought them eventually.
I love wearing items that have stories attached to them. It feels so much more meaningful that something bought at a big box store on an average weekend. That’s why I love to buy clothes and accessories when on vacation. Everytime I wear them, I can remember where I was and what I was doing when I bought them. Or when it’s something handmade, I can think about the artist that created the item (or the time I spend making it, in the case of this cardigan). I think that’s a good goal to set: cultivate a more meaningful wardrobe.
