Ah scarves, they are so perfect for anytime and season! In winter gotta love the chunky knits and now that we're transitioning into spring, it's all about the floaty silk and skinny scarves. My fav of your picks is actually that Tussardi one the male model is wearing, it's quite pretty haha.

Swell Vintage - Frankie said...

You've got it all wrapped up, CC! These are all essential and perfect for the cooler summer nights. Love it! x

lisa said...

Scarves have become a year-round staple for me in the past year; they come in so many fabrications and styles! I have to wonder, though, is the year-round scarf trend somewhat related to global warming? Summer seems to get shorter and shorter and spring and autumn are a lot longer and chillier than I remember them to be, which makes donning a scarf practical and stylish. :P

Laura said...

Love the striped scarves!

i've been working hard on wearing the saris in my wardrobe. saris, as you know, are just extra long scarves. wrap, pleat, tuck, hang and you have custom fit. for those days when a sari evenwith all its merits is too much work - for those days a Tolani scarf for me, please

Trixy said...

Scarves are BY FAR, my favorite accessory (after a handbag, of course). Lovelovelove this post!
