My scarf


So the weather is getting chilly, at least out east, and I have a new scarf this year. Seriously, my mom would vomit if she knew this, but my new scarf is really just a piece of long piece of Lycra that isn't even stitched on the bottom. I purchased it for 20 dollars at the Gap. It looks like the one in the picture. Cute huh? In any case, the scarf is really soft and the blue matches anything I wear. Needless to say, I have worn the scarf everyday since I purchased it, except today.

Sans scarf today - I felt odd. This made me think, what is it about that darn scarf, for that matter what is it about scarfs period? I am a scarf lover.

I put my finger on it. Scarfs make me feel warm and cuddly, despite being in uncomfortable work clothes. They feel like a security blankets in some type of odd way. A scarf is worn against that tender place around my neck. It maintains that sweet smell of my perfume, reminding me of a new day. Our office, like most, is quite chilly. My scarf makes me warm, and I feel like being warm transfers to the inside.

Sorry Mom, I know I can get a piece of Lycra in the scrap bin at JoAnn's but I am going to get another scarf. This time I am going to get the Product Red version. Perhaps that new scarf can make it to my blog too!

Haha I just bought a Burberry Scarf I've been wanting forever much to my husbands threat to take awake my credit card because "Hello! We live in Florida!" But I just had to have it & I hope to get a change to wear it! Even if it has to be in 85 degree weather dammit!
