A Kinda Christmas Fashion Tale

Leggings and a scarf look: Style Perspectives

Quick recap for you of last week's plaid and gingham madness.  Did you have a favourite look?



It's Style Perspectives day and I have a confession.

I don't like scarves.

Jordan, I think you are inheriting all of mine. Except for my two infinity scarves and the one Josh got me in Paris and the wrap Kyla got me in Italy. Okay, maybe I like scarves but only infinity scarves? Point is, is that it's not my signature look and I only wear them when it's chilly in the mornings. Scarves leave me feeling sweaty and awkward (unless I'm certain it's hanging perfectly and in which case it's an infinity scarf)



Leggings, though...that's my jam.  I love a fun pair of leggings with a long tunic, which may very well be my go-to weekend look and more laid back teaching look that I revert to on the days that I don't feel like getting dressed but don't want to look schlubby.



Now Lucy, she can wear a scarf.  My talented friend, Carmen, knit this for her and she was absolutely thrilled.



I have recreated this look for you via the Loft, H&M and Nordstrom's, just in case you want to dress like Deena for a day.

  10. This is hilarious. I gasped when I read the title. I LOVE me a scarf. Obviously.

    I instantly worried that since you weren't liking scarves anymore that maybe they were going out of style. And did I mention? I LOVE me a scarf. You can then imagine the relief I had when I read your joke of giving me all of yours. I know you wouldn't pass on out of style items. Phew.

  11. I love infinity scarves as well...I don't really think I can pull off much else, trend or not hahaha. But I do also love the leggings/tuni combo and you look amazing in both these looks! XO -Kim

  12. I love scarves but I have to find one that works with a larger chest! And tooooootally agree- they can be so sweaty sometimes! Ha!

  13. Haha... I'm like you!! I like fashion scarves....in theory... but then I buy then, and rarely are they worn, I just don't like something around my neck like that. Scarves for warmth, however, are so much easier when paired with the right coat in the winter... but looks like you've got a good foundation base going for incorporating them into your style! :)

  14. You have the best leggings! And you may not like them, but you look great in scarves. I agree with Jordan - I fear the day scarves go out of style. You and your daughter both look gorgeous this week!

  15. I definitely need more tunics in my life so I can start wearing leggings to work! Especially at this time of the school year. Putting on real clothes is getting increasingly difficult!

  16. Did you coordinate your fun leggings with Christy? Scarves are not my jam either - I feel trapped when wearing them - especially blanket ones. You look great in a leggings and a tunic - I would say that is your signature look.

  17. The thing is I would like to dress like you everyday! Look at those fun leggings, and the scarf that looks completely natural on you. I do prefer to have infinity scarves though because there is no extra material to figure out what to do with. Lucy's scarf is awesome, possibly a knitting project for my mom.

  32. I'm all about a tunic and leggings when I don't want to get dressed for work. I love scarves but I've found myself not wearing them much at all. Not sure if I am sad about it or just sad about all those scarves hanging in my closet.
