What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.

There is a definite chill in the air this morning: that subtle but undeniable shift between fall's end and winter's approach. At times like these I crave thick, chunky scarves. They provide that comfort and warmth I crave...like fashion's version of a cocoon.
Of all the colors and prints out there, I find myself gravitating toward gray a lot. Perhaps it's the versatility. Or I associate gray weather with gray fabrics. On a crazy morning, gray is a safe grab when I have to wear a scarf but don't have the time to coordinate colored pieces. And the rising popularity of the infinity scarf? Heaven.
Here are some new discoveries...and after realizing that I'd picked 3 gray scarves, I changed my tune and began to embrace more color.
1) Chunky Cowl Scarf (Etsy) (How adorable is this girl?!)
6) Lands' End Holiday Owl Scarf (okay, I had to go gray on this one...red just wasn't the same)
My scarf collection is out of control. It is a very sad day indeed when I have to say goodbye to one of them. But little can be done once a gauzy scarf looses its oomph or snags. A scarf has to be looong gone before I will bid it adieu.
Storing them is another hurdle. Thankfully, the organization world is embracing scarf hoarders like myself. These are two that I use:
1) 10-Scarf Hanger (I have four of these and love them! The most efficient scarf organizer I've found.)
2) IKEA Komplement multi-use hanger (I like this hanger and it's ability to hold 28+ scarves, but the bottom scarves are hard to access and I forget about them)
