Some days you just don’t feel like thinking about what you put on. You want to be comfortable, but not look like a slob, but for some reason nothing in your closet is speaking to you. Rather than just come to terms with the fact that I’m destined to leave the house looking like a misfit, I’ve made my go-to on days like this comfy jeans and a loose button-up. With that as the base it’s easy to pull the look together with just a scarf and/or heels.

I bought this scarf a while back, and though it cost a pretty penny, it’s more than paid for itself as I’ve worn it countless times, with almost every type of outfit and every color. A large, multi-colored cashmere/wool scarf is a perfect year-round staple. It’s great to layer in winter months, and a perfect jacket substitute in the summer.
