The weather has finally turned cold again in Florida, and I’m milking it for all it’s worth. I know that pretty much everyone is ready for Spring, but right now I am loving winter. Boots and tights and scarves and sweaters are so much fun, and I know that it’s only a short few month until the hot temps of summer will be here.
This outfit definitely kept me warm, but I must say that I wasn’t completely sold on the color scheme. I would rather have worn a solid white blouse underneath, or even a pale blue one, but I didn’t have any that would work with this outfit. I still think it looks good, but the tones are a bit warm overall for my liking.
One thing I am sold on is this method of tying a scarf. Referred to by many as the Orchid Grey wrap, it essentially involves wrapping a scarf around your neck once or twice, and then tucking the ends in. It worked fabulously with this hand-spun, hand-knit merino scarf. It was fantastically cozy. If I ever do decide to open an Etsy shop, it would probably be to sell scarves like this. That won’t be anytime soon though, as I have more than enough on my plate right now.
