For at least the next week here in the Midwest we are looking at temps in the 30’s during the day and into the low teens at night. Yay…
But seriously, no, yay for hats and scarves! I’d choose a scarf over a necklace as an outfit completer any day.
Now, I don’t limit my accessories (things like hats, scarves, jewelry etc.) to a set and specific number like I do the rest of my closet, BUT I’m still trying to practice minimalism there as well. I thought six sounded like as good as number as any, so I went with that: 3 hats and 3 scarves to add into the mix regularly.
Here they are:
Bomber hat This is not the exact hat I have in my closet, but it looks exactly the same. Follow me? I stole this hat from my husband a few years back and have never worn a hat that does such a fine job at keeping one’s head, ears and face toasty. All while making you look adorable. Who said form and function can’t coexist?
Softest ribbed beanie This hat right here is one on my Christmas wish list — so not technically in my closet (insert sad face here). The reviews RAVE about it and I’ve been looking to add a beanie with “the perfect amount of slouch” for awhile now to my cold weather arsenal. Fingers crossed Santa thought I was an extra good girl this year!
Winter white beanie My winter white beanie is several years old, but again looks exactly like this one. I love the way the white looks against my dark hair and the pom on the top? Perfection.
Plaid fringe scarf I first found this scarf on my favorite capsule wardrobe blog, Unfancy. Caroline added it to her fall capsule and I was left swooning. I’m such a sucker for plaid! It’s a lot more than I would normally spend on a scarf, so I’m still very much so on the fence. If I can find the right flannel material I will be making use of this awesome fringe scarf tutorial I came across the other day. Genius-ness.
Knit loop scarf I love my chunky infinity scarf so much I probably over wear it. And the crazy part is I wear this scarf even more now that I’ve converted it to a infinity scarf. That’s right, it didn’t used to be. But once I came across this awesome 10 minute diy infinity scarf tutorial I realized the potential of a regular ‘ol scarf I just had sitting in my closet. I’ve linked to a scarf that I find similar to my finished product. You know, in case you don’t have any scarves available to convert — or like adding things to shopping carts better ;)
Grey fringe scarf So crazy that I happened upon this scarf because just earlier this week I bought some fabric at Joann’s and made this exact scarf using the diy fringe scarf tutorial I mentioned above. I’m all about the grey this winter and this dark grey with an extremely subtle herringbone pattern jumped out at me while perusing the flannel section. #score You can go get the fabric your self and make the easiest, coolest scarf ever, or check out the one I’ve linked to for some instant gratification.
Happy accessorizing! And tell me, what are your top picks for cold weather accessories this season?
