Daily Default in SF

Gucci scarf, Bebe moto jacket, Owlita earrings

Scarves.  A scarf can take a look from slightly haphazard to fashion-forward and fabulous.  I just added a second Daily Default scarf to my collection today, and the excitement is coming through in my blog.

My personal favorite type of scarf is a square cut which can be folded into a triangle and worn Afgani-style as shown in the picture above (which I am still all for even though it was at its peak of trendy a couple of seasons ago), or simply folded in half to a rectangle and worn that way as well.  The possibilities are endless.  In addition, they really come in handy as blankets on planes, in movie theaters, ect.

The great thing about scarves besides how they tend to pull a look together is the added benefit that they actually serve a purpose: warmth!  I am pretty much freezing cold all the time, and having a scarf on or tied to my bag comes in clutch and is very aesthetically pleasing as well.  There are a ton of beautiful higher quality scarves that tend to be a little pricey, but there are so many great scarves out there for next to nothing, so every lady can afford the luxury of having one.

However, make sure to buy or order a scarf that is not all wool, or you'll be way to itchy to deal with wearing it more than just occasionally.  My favorite scarf (shown above) is 30% silk, 70% wool.  And please, to avoid the ascot look, make sure it's 3.5 feet x 3.5 feet or larger if you're purchasing a square shawl/scarf.

Here in polar SF, we can rationalize this Daily Default purchase with 100% confidence! No guilt trips with this one. Enjoy! ;-)
