One of The Few Things I Bought For Spring

I’m going through one of my phases where I feel like my closet is exploding, and while I have too much to wear, I still seem to have nothing suitable for most occasions.


Not my closet, but you get the gist.

I’ve also lost some weight recently and I’d rather strive to fit into the aspirational pieces of my wardrobe (they already exist, sigh) than buy something new that may prove to be transitional.

Plus I need to save money for a new house and move what I do have into it, so the net sum of all of the above is that I’m not acquiring at my usual pace.

This is something that feels quite good.

I saw this scarf on a capsule wardrobe blog that I love, Classy Yet Trendy. 

[I really, really like the styles put forth at Classy Yet Trendy. The author puts together multiple capsule wardrobes each season – French minimalist, athleisure, work outfits – and I find myself loving most of the picks. I’m ultimately striving to be like this].

Back to the scarf:

This Gap scarf combines so many of the on trend colors of Spring 2018 (dusty pink, olive, sky blue) in a cute camo print.

I had to have it.

There are so many ways to wear this. It would look great to dress up or down. I think it would look fantastic with a chambray shirt.

Here is is with an open gray cardigan from J. Crew Factory (bought last fall):


Ok, let’s try that again:



The colors are slightly more vibrant than in the photos.

This scarf is also currently on sale for $21 at the Gap. So glad I bought it for spring.
